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.

    "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.

    "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.

    "Really good book"

    Was really good but not really deep. Light mystery. I love the Christian Mystery books that they keep morals &don't do sensual sex scenes but most of them write on a teenage level . This one is like that. It is good but just really light.

    Dee Henderson's books


    What does Celeste Ciulla bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Good reader, I usually prefer male readers but she was excellant

    "Fire the narrator - Celeste Ciulla"

    Irene Hannon writes stories with amazing credible mysteries , crime scene and a touch of romance.Clean and inspiring.

    Celeste ciulla should not narrate these stories. Had I not already been familiar with Hannons stories, I would have never finished it.
    The narrator sucked, she was obviously not familiar with the story as she lacked the ability to bring the characters to life, and failed to act out the characters. Don't use her again.

    "Narrator =NO!!!"

    I don't usually leave reviews but it was very difficult to finish this book due to the poor narration! It seemed like she should be narrating a teenage love story and not this! The storyline was ok for the most part but it was just hard to enjoy listening to it! This was my first Irene Hannon book..not sure if I will read another??

    "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.
