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.

TRAPPED is the second book in Ms. Hannon’s Private Justice series, but it easily stands alone. Readers will want to read Vanished though, as it tells the story of Cal’s romance. TRAPPED starts slow, but it is gripping, locking the reader tight in it’s vices until the book is finished.
Parts of TRAPPED was really creepy and disturbing, but it wasn’t real scary. I knew who the bad guy was from the beginning, and I knew Darcy would be rescued, but I didn’t know how or when.

Ms. Hannon is definitely a talented writer, and TRAPPED is a book I couldn’t put down. Recommended to fans of romantic suspense. Don’t miss Vanished, TRAPPED, or book three, Deceived, coming in 2014. $14.99. 400 pages. 5 stars.
