Publisher's Summary

The best-selling author of more than 35 novels, Irene Hannon has garnered two RITA Awards and a slew of other honors. Vanished, the first book in the Private Justice series, follows reporter Moira Harrisons, who strikes a pedestrian while driving late one night on a wooded road. Dazed from the crash, Moira sees a second man appear at her window and assure her everything will be all right - but then she passes out. When Moira wakes, both men are gone, and a mystery awaits.

    "A gripping story"

    This story held my interest from the beginning, despite the rather lame accents the narrator used on occasion. I will definitely look for more by this author.

    "Very exciting "

    Loved this romantic suspense, it was extremely well written and kept me on the edge of my seat. The narrator was excellent as well and really added to the story.

    Story
    "Story is good. Narrator...not so much."

    I like Irene Hannon's stories and was glad to see a new one was available. I wish I had bought the print version instead of the Audible recording. While I found the story good, the narration was not. More than once I turned it off and considered returning it. I'm not sure how to discribe what I so disliked. Celeste Ciulla does not do male voices well and there were many times that I wasn't sure which character was speaking. The thing that really annoyed me was her inflection and emphasis. Many times she sounded like a fifth grader that the teacher warned to watch puncuation and to add emotion when you read. Ms. Ciulla is not whiney or shrill, just flat with force emotion. On the whole the narrator ruined this listen for me. She is certainly not the worst I've heard but I will think twice about using a credit on another of her performances.

    "Great story, couldn't get past the narrator."

    This story sounded really promising, and from what I was listened to it seemed to deliver. The writing was great, the characters believable... I'm actually quite likely to pick this book up in print and listen to other books by the same author. Unfortunately, the narrator was a little... over the top? It sounded more like an enthusiastic infomercial than a mystery novel. She's probably wonderful with comedies or maybe even romances, but in a mystery/thriller her narration was just distracting.

    I had hoped that given time I wouldn't notice her style so much, the way people's accents start to fade after you've had enough conversations with them, but alas - that was not the case. I couldn't get past it and had to return it.

    "Good mystery"

    When I started reading this I had a solution in mind but changed my mind as I continued my read. Fun characters. I enjoyed the book and have already recommended it to my friends; especially my friends from St. Louis.

    "Good Story"

    Good story which had me from the first chapter. The narrator didn't sound convincing with male characters but still overall well done.

    "Good...but"
    What did you love best about Vanished?

    The story line was okay. A bit predictible, but interesting.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Irene Hannon? Why or why not?

    Yes. It wasn't too bad. Passes the time.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    The narrator is the main reason I'm leaving a review. As a person, I'm sure that she's lovely, and she has a great voice. BUT she pauses in all the wrong places and the voices she uses for different characters just doesn't fit. It just doesn't flow and can be very annoying.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Nope.


    Any additional comments?

    Good book, not so good narrator.

    "Vanished , very engaging & enjoyable."

    It definitely met my expectations.
    The best parts, when Moira finally found the truth & when Cal proposed.
    The performance was good with the different voices.
