Book Summary: Reporter Moira Harrisons is lost. In the dark. In a thunderstorm. When a confusing detour places her on a rural, wooded road, she's startled by the sudden appearance of a lone figure caught in the beam of her headlights. Though Moira jams on her brakes, the car careens across the wet pavement--and the solid thump against the side of the vehicle tells her she hit the person before she crashes into a tree on the far side of the road. A dazed Moira is relieved when a man opens her door, tells her he saw everything, and promises to call 911. Then everything fades to black. When she comes to an hour later, she is alone. No man. No 911. No injured person lying on the side of the road. But she can't forget the look of terror she saw on the person's face in the instant before her headlights swung away. The person she hit had been in trouble. She's sure of it. But she can't get anyone to believe her story--except a handsome former police detective, now a private eye, who agrees to take on the case.
Review: This was a buckle your seat belt, nail biting suspense. I loved the cat and mouse suspense. Much of the mystery was easy to solve it was just waiting for the other shoe to drop and all the blanks to be filled in. I liked Irene Hannon’s writing style and how she developed characters. There were some moments when Moira did some hair brained things that were somewhat out of character for her. Over all the story line was solid and the characters were likable with a good set up for the other books in the series.
