Trapped by Irene Hannon

A runaway teen, a desperate sister, and an intrepid PI determined to discover the truth
When Laura Griffith'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 private investigator James Devlin to help. Dev knows time is of the essence with runaways--just forty-eight hours can mean the difference between recovery and ruin.

But the deeper he and Laura dig, the more Dev begins to suspect that something sinister is at work in the girl's disappearance. And in the icy winter weather, the trail is going cold . . .

In her latest thrilling read, queen of romantic suspense Irene Hannon outdoes herself with a fast-paced tale of fear, deception, and just the right dose of romance.

My review:
   Christian suspense is my all time favorite genre', and Irene Hannon is one of my favorite authors who writes it.

   This is the second book in the Private Justice Series, and like the first book, it does not disappoint. This book centers on another of the trio of investigators, "Dev". He is investigating the disappearance of a teenager. The book had a slow start, but quickly became the nail biter Irene is known for. It turned out to be an excellent read that kept me turning the pages as fast as I could read them. And when I say it had a slower start, I don't mean it was boring. It just took a while for the stage to be set.

  I liked the fact that the book showed what was going on with the missing girl and those who were looking for her.

  As with all of Irene's books, there was also romance in the book, but it was not overdone and was a secondary part of the story. I thoroughly enjoyed the book, and am looking forward to the third book in the series.
