Great page turner
Grabs you at the beginning and does'nt let you go. Maggie Ryan, female detective, really sinks her teeth into this case and can relate to the victims from her past experience. This whodunit keeps you guessing until the end and can easily be read in a day or two. The whole book is from Maggie's point of view so it's not complicated but does keep your interest.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Detective Maggie Ryan is one-of-a-kind!
Ellen Spencer took her little girl, Carrie, to the park. Ellen turned her back for only a minute and Carrie had disappeared. <BR><BR> Detective Maggie Ryan transferred to quiet Litchfield to escape the smell of so much death. But even quiet areas occasionally see the gruesome. Possible suspects of the kidnaping were high, from family members to a criminal who had recently shown up. Each suspect had a dark past with several skeletons tucked away. But Maggie's childhood had been very abusive, and it was those dark times that made Maggie determined to catch the villain! <BR><BR> ***** Susan McBride has taken every parent's nightmare and made the perfect detective for the job! This book left me breathless! Putting it down was simply unthinkable! I have high hopes of a second book featuring Detective Maggie Ryan. Highly recommended! *****Was this review helpful?

But can she repeat?
This author is loaded with story-telling talent and has the fictional skills to match. She knows how to unfold a plot. AND THEN SHE WAS GONE is a well-crafted, one-sitting read. But can she repeat? I'd buy her next book just to see.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
