Publisher's Summary

Private investigator Alexandra Lovell uses computer skills and cunning to help clients drop off the radar and begin new lives in safety. Melanie Bess, desperate to escape her abusive cop husband, was one of those clients. But when Melanie vanishes for real, Alex fears the worst, and sets out to discover what happened. Using every resource she can get her hands on - including an elite team of forensic scientists known as the Tracers and a jaded, sexy Austin PD detective - Alex embarks on a mission to uncover the truth.
As far as homicide cop Nathan Deveraux is concerned, no body means no case. But as much as he wants to believe that Alex's hunch about Melanie's murder is wrong, his instincts - and their visceral attraction - won't let him walk away. As a grim picture of what really happened begins to emerge, Nathan realizes this investigation runs deeper than they could ever have guessed. And each step closer to the truth puts Alex in danger of being the next to disappear.

Narrator is not for me

This book didn't work for me. It's not that it's terribly bad (I've endured much worse) but it was nothing special. The publisher's description sounded really promising but I found myself falling asleep constantly while listening to it - lucky I wasn't driving :) The story was unexciting and the characters not really very compelling. There was nothing that really made this book stand out for me.

Maybe a better narrator could have lifted the book from the "just OK" level. I'm a huge believer in the importance of the narrator - they can make or break. This narrator did not make the book come alive for me. She slurs some of her words and I found this increasingly irritating. Her largely monotone narration contributed to my tendency to fall asleep while listening.

This book was not my best audiobook experience but definitely not my worst - just very blah.

didn't work for me.

I wanted to like this, I like mysteries but I couldn't connect with the characters. The plot was alright, it had a fair amount of suspense but the characters, especially the woman just irritated me more than anything. She was stubborn and wouldn't listen to reason but we were never given enough reason to understand why she would stick to her guns when it didn't make any sense.

The narrator did a good job with what she had to work with.
