When librarian Laura Griffith's 16-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 PI James "Dev" Devlin to help. But the deeper he digs, the more he begins to suspect that something sinister is at work in the girl's disappearance. And the closer he gets to uncovering the truth, the clearer it becomes that the situation isn't just dangerous - it's deadly. Chilling and at times terrifying, Trapped is the latest thrilling listen from Irene Hannon, the queen of romantic suspense. Hannon outdoes herself with this fast-paced tale of fear, deception, and just the right dose of romance.

Contrived narration made this one difficult ...
This review might have been different if a different narrator had done the story. I just did not like the contrived tone of the narrator.
I like Irene Hannon's style of writing very much. Her novels move seamlessly amongst the characters, giving the reader a real sense of what makes each character 'tick'. The character-development of the teenaged sister in this novel was interesting and moving.
I like Irene Hannon's books and had just finished an audio book that I thoroughly enjoyed ("Deceived") by the same author (though a different narrator). I looked forward to another fast-paced and enjoyable novel as I selected "Trapped" but I simply could not get past my frustration with the narration of the story. I am not usually very critical of narrators. I know that narration is an undervalued professional skill and I have the utmost respect for a good narrator. Ms.Ciulla's style and tone just did not do justice to this novel.
I cannot recommend the audio book though I would recommend the novel.

Great Story - Narration not so great...
