This will leave chills inside the readers' hearts

Five UCLA students drive from California to Nevada to attend the tribal gathering Burning Man in the Black Forest Desert. After a couple of fun filled days, on the second night Gary feels drugged and is knocked out along with his four friends. When he looks for his companions he finds Reyn, Stacy and Brian, but his girlfriend Joan is missing. The police don't take the disappearance seriously; the four students return to the college to work on a plan to find Joan.

They learn someone tampered with Joan's files so it looks as if she never attended the school; her Facebook and My Space pages are gone. Teri Lin, the student who gave Joan's family number, is killed by a man wearing hAmish like homespun clothing that. Gary is kidnapped by three men who wear the identical clothing as Teri's killer wore. When he escapes he finds himself in New Mexico. He learns Joan is being held in the religious cult's compound in Bitterwood, Texas where she grew up. Gary and his friends arrive to spring her but hundreds of worshipers of Father surround her. Joan knows she F Father will hunt her and her friends until they are dead.

This will leave chills inside the readers' hearts as the audience will be spellbound with fear yet horrified with this powerful human horror thriller. Gary is a mature person who knows his love for Joan is not a youthful game but much more. Resolute though some would insist foolish, he risks his life for his beloved knowing the cult will try to kill him to prevent one of theirs leaving. Bentley Little will appear on bestseller lists as he mesmerizes his fans with the Disappearance.

Let me start by saying that I have been a huge Bentley Little fan for years and always eagerly await the next book. When I saw this was available as an ebook, I bought it and started it right away. That's when the disappointment started. Usually when I buy a book by Little, I start it early in the day because I know I will read all day and finish it. This one...2 1/2 weeks of making myself read and I finally finished today. The ending wasn't a greusome shock like the rest of his novels and now I feel left unsatisfied. Booo on this one, Mr. Little. Sorry.

    Bridget's Review

    I really, really, really enjoyed this book. The Disappearance is a must read for those who share my love for books filled with terror and suspense. I have added Bentley to my list of favorite authors. Five stars, easy.
