TRAPPED by Irene Hannon

Laura Griffith is a librarian whose quiet life changed when she gained custody of her sixteen-year-old sister, Darcy. Darcy thinks Laura has too many rules, so she leaves a note and decides to strike out on her own. She was suppose to take the bus to a friends in Chicago but a snowstorm delays her. She makes her way to a homeless shelter where she meets Mark Hamilton. Laura decides to hire PI James 'Dev' Devlin to help track down Darcy. Dev finds a couple of leads but it seems Darcy has disappeared. Dev knows with teen runaways, time is of the essence, but the deeper that Laura and Dev dig, the more Dev's gut tells him something very strange is going on. But will he figure it out before 'strange' turns to 'deadly'?

Trapped is a chilling, edge-of-your-seat, hard-to-put-down thriller that you will not want to miss! In Vanished, (book 1), we've gotten acquainted the folks at Phoenix, Inc., and although this story really revolves around Dev, you'll find all the players present. I thoroughly enjoyed the close camaraderie and banter they share. It's fun. Dev was a great guy and I liked how the author allowed the reader to hear what he was thinking. Laura was a great lady that I enjoyed getting to know. Together they had lots of chemistry. I must say that the villain in this story was really creepy and provided for some very intense moments. Whew! I liked how Laura's faith not only made a difference in her life but in the lives of others as well. Trapped is book two in the Private Justice series and my favorite so far. If you enjoy Dee Henderson, Anne Patrick or Lynette Eason then you would definitely enjoy this series. Now I'm looking forward to reading Deceived when it comes out.
