Book Review for VANISHED IN THE NIGHT by Eileen Carr

Vanished In The Night was written by Eileen Carr and published by Pocket Books in July, 2011. You may purchase this book at http://www.amazon.com/ and you may read more about Ms. Carr on her Goodread’s page at www.goodreads.com

Old bones turn up at a large construction site in Sacramento, sending Detective Zach McKnight and his partner on a cold-case hunt for a murderer. When the ME identifies the bones as those of one, Max Sheldon, his step-sister Veronica Osborne is paid a visit and given the news that the brother she loved and hoped would return, has been dead for nearly twenty years.

When McKnight discovers that Max’s step-father is the reason Max was sent to a reform school so many years ago, and that the school had reported the boy missing not long after he arrived, McKnight begins to suspect that the lovely Veronica’s father may possibly be the reason her step-brother has been dead for so many years. But, when Veronica realizes that the detective suspects her father of the crime, she begins an investigation of her own to prove her alcoholic father was not the culprit.

Twist and turns, mutilated bodies and bazar occurrences punctuate this novel by Eileen Carr and propel her into a top spot as an up-and-comer on the ‘Masters of the Thriller’ list. The characters are true-to-life, the attractions are right on target and the suspense is gripping in this great keep-you-up-all-night read. Murder, love, trust and betrayal…what else could you ask from a suspense novel?
