Come along with Hannah on a journey of suspense and terror. My reviews for crime suspense novel of Gone Without A Trace follows.
CHARACTERS, PLOTTING, DEVELOPMENT:
Author Mary Torjussen crafted an intriguing spine tingling, criminal suspense novel in her first offering to readers, Gone Without A Trace. First I must say, I found the main character, Hannah Monroe, whiny and insecure. I understand her stress, shock, and heart-break, however, most people would immediately call the cops. That said, I enjoyed the suspense, and twist and turns as Hannah began her search for Matt; it all made sense as the plot’s revealed.
Torjussen included twists and turns, dysfunctional families, thrills, suspense, mystery, and obsession in her story-line. The plot’s skillful and the pace steady and fast. With an ending twist which left my mouth hanging open in amazement, I found myself dumbfounded! I never guessed what was coming.
Finally, in concluding my crime suspense novel review of Gone Without A Trace, I found a solid story with fast pacing and enough intrigue and mystery to satisfy any one. Although I found Hannah’s character irritating and immature in the beginning, it made sense as I neared the end of book. I found the twists in the story provided a satisfying read. I would not hesitate to buy this book for my self or a friend as it provided hours of chills and thrills and an ending that will knock your socks off.
