Publisher's Summary

In New York Times best-selling author Kay Hooper's novel, an SCU team investigates a troubling string of disappearances. But how do you find someone who has vanished without a trace?
Something strange is happening in the small mountain town of Serenity, Tennessee. People going on routine errands never reach their destination. It's as if they simply disappear. Over the past few weeks, it's happened to five men and women - and now a child.
The local police chief calls the FBI, and a team from the Special Crimes Unit is immediately sent in. Agents Lucas and Samantha Jordan, partners in work and in life, have very different abilities. Samantha is clairvoyant and Lucas possesses a unique ability to find the lost or abducted. With them are new partners Dante Swann, a medium, and Robbie Hodge, a telepath.
The town is already on the edge of panic, but the mysterious events take a sinister turn when a body unrelated to the missing persons case surfaces and one of the SCU agents vanishes. Now, the team's hunt for the lost has turned into something very personal...and very dangerous.

Suspenseful Psychic Mystery

As a general rule I'm not big into psychic or occult books but Kay Hooper has such s good writing style and perspective that her books come off as very believable.
This is one of the new Bishop Files series books which goes back to before previously written books. It's kind of nice because it gives background to some of the characters I have read about but had no background.
In this book townspeople have started to disappear after dark. The kidnapper has abilities that confound the special investigators but in the end you know who comes out on top but there is a sad and surprise of an ending.
Joyce Bean narrates most of Kay Hooper's books and as always does a fantastic job.
Very very good and HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

Boring and lacks imagination

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

Very few. Maybe someone who is new to the series but even then, the pace is so slow, it will put you to sleep.

What do you think your next listen will be?

Not sure but will give this series a break.

How could the performance have been better?

The narrator droned on and on. No inflections of the.voice, nothing. I'm really surprised because I chose this book as much for the narrator as the series. I love Joyce Bean. Maybe it was the story that just made the narration less than stellar. Her performance was very monotone and didn't make you care about any of the characters. Really disappointing.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

Not really.

Any additional comments?

I'm not giving up on the author because I've enjoyed the series in the past. I'm just going to try something else for a while. The narrator Is one of favorites so she gets a pass. I'll listen to her anytime. This was just a fluke.
