Publisher's Summary

Even for Private Investigations, the world's top detective agency, it's tough to find a man who doesn't exist....

Craig Gisto has promised Eliza Moss that his elite team at Private Sydney will investigate the disappearance of her father. After all, as CEO of a high-profile research company, Eric Moss shouldn't be difficult to find.

Except it's not just the man who's gone missing. Despite the most advanced technology at their disposal, they find every trace of him has vanished, too.

And they aren't the only ones on the hunt. Powerful figures want Moss to stay "lost" while others just as ruthlessly want him found.

Meanwhile, a routine background check becomes a frantic race to find a stolen baby and catch a brutal killer - a killer Private may well have sent straight to the victim's door....

Narration was hard to listen to

The story was okay. The narration was very difficult to listen to. The voices - he did all of them and he didn't do a good job. I didn't really care for it and It took away from the story.

good read

excellent story except for a rather abrupt and somewhat weak wrap up that left a feeling of incompleteness.

disappointed

Not up to the standard set by previous Private books. So sorry to think I can't look forward to next in series.

Horrible Narrator

This is a very weak and poorly written and read story! There is no flow to the story! The narrator is less than desirable! The Private Series is great but this does not measure up to that high standard!

Not Bad, But Story Gets Convoluted

There's a lot to like about this story. I enjoyed the characters, there's a lot of action, and it's a short enough story that it didn't wear out it's welcome. I also didn't mind the reader at all (not sure why others did). All the characters are Australian, so his accent was appropriate and didn't annoy me. Is he the best reader I've listened to? No, not by a long shot, but I thought he was fine.

I think the author "tried a little too hard" in some respects, to create some twists and turns and keep the readers/listeners guessing. By the end of the "A" story (there is a "B" story also), I have to admit that I was a bit lost, and not sure that the ending actually made much sense. Less would have been better in this case, but overall it was a pretty enjoyable ride.

Enjoyable read!

Great story and moves along quickly. I do tend to get a bit lost when there is no change in voices for the different characters. Recommend.
