Trapped by Irene Hannon (Private Justice Series)

I have become an Irene Hannon reader. Having read all of her last 2 series, I am really liking this series the best. Trapped actually has topped her other books so far. There was one loose end I didn't feel tied up correctly, but I still enjoyed this book. Trapped is a mystery thriller, even if it says Romantic Suspense.

In Trapped we return to our current favored PI - Dev, James Devlin. Laura Griffith has taken on her 16 year old sister, Darcy. Only Darcy isn't happy with the rules, and while a horrible snow and ice storm rages, Darcy leaves home. Her parents dead, Laura is her half sister and only living family member. Darcy figures Laura will not miss her. She is wrong.

The hours tick by , then the days, and a brave but frantic Laura works with Dev to try to find her sister. Before long it becomes a stronger and stronger possibility that she has fallen into serious trouble. The deeper they dig, the worse things look for Darcy.

Meanwhile, there is a tormented soul who is seeking redemption. He is looking for the right woman to save him. His idea of redemption isn't exactly ours. No, not by a long shot. He is an "upstanding" citizen, with some idiosyncrasies that will rock most readers minds.

No, it didn't scare me, but it was a very good page turner. I thought Irene did a wonderful job of her villain, and of course the new characters. I was glad to see the progression of things in Dev's life too.
You will enjoy this one!

About the Book:

When librarian Laura Griffth’s sixteen-year-old sister disappears on a frigid February day, leaving only a brief note behind, Laura resolves to do whatever it takes to track down the runaway teen. That includes recruiting ATF agent turned PI James “Dev” Devlin to help—but the deeper he digs, the more he begins to suspect that something sinister is at work in the girl’s disappearance. And the closer he gets to uncovering the truth, the clearer it becomes that the situation isn’t just dangerous—it’s deadly.
