The Disappearance by Susan Berliner

When Jillian Keating is arrested for the murder of her missing boyfriend, Ryan Cornell, she has two immediate questions: Why did he frame her—and where is he hiding?

Using her own ingenuity, plus the help of a resourceful lady lawyer and a dashing young private investigator, Jillian discovers the surprising—and disturbing—answers. Her boyfriend is not what he appears to be. The real Ryan, consumed with hate, has devised an ingenious scheme to destroy her while he escapes into the past via a hidden time travel portal. But even knowing all this, Jillian is left with a more difficult question: How can she capture Ryan and bring him back?

Filled with memorable characters, bizarre twists, and riveting suspense, "The Disappearance" culminates with an elaborate sting operation as Jillian and her friends travel through time to lure Ryan into their clever trap. If they succeed, she will go free. But if they fail, Jillian will surely face murder charges for the death of Ryan Cornell.

About the Author

Susan Berliner, the author of the supernatural thrillers, "DUST," "Peachwood Lake," and "The Disappearance," has been a nonfiction writer for nearly her entire career. She had originally planned to be an elementary school teacher, but left after a year to become a newspaper reporter for Fairchild Publications. She covered men's retailing for Daily New Record, a men's wear/textile trade newspaper, which was the "brother" paper of Women's Wear Daily.

After Susan's children were born, she switched to freelance writing--mainly in education--publishing several book series dealing with editing skills, language arts, and standardized testing. She has also created teachers' guides, student activity sheets, and test passages. During this time, Susan was the project editor for a national science magazine for elementary school students and edited subject-related manuscripts for children in grades 7 and 8. In addition, she freelanced as a local reporter, covering board meetings for the "North County News," a weekly newspaper in Yorktown Heights, New York.

When she returned to work full-time, Susan became the promotion manager of the Yorktown PennySaver, a job she held for 20 years. She created many original weekly contests--Phony Ad, Rhyme Time, and PennySaver Prophet.

Susan lives with her husband, Larry, in Yorktown Heights, where she's editing her fourth book ("Corsonia"), and writing her fifth novel ("The Touchers").

I just loved this book!! This is one of those books that will call you to pick it back up if you have the self control to set it down for a moment. I was pulled in throughout the entire story because I could not wait to see what would happen next. I, personally, have my fingers crossed for a sequel!! I want to go on another adventure with these characters.

It's a good thing I didn't have anything important to do the day I started reading "The Disappearance." I couldn't put the book down! Every time I thought I knew what was going to happen there was an unexpected twist to the story. The plot is imaginative and the main characters are quirky and likeable. Sit down with a glass of wine and enjoy!

I think a teenager wrote this book. Very simplistic and while somewhat interesting, it just seemed juvenile. Short book, shallow lead, no character building. Good idea for story.
