Publisher's Summary

Is she alive, or is she missing for good?

When the estranged daughter of Scotland's premier art dealer goes missing, Private Investigator Hanlon is hired to find out where Aurora is.

But what she thinks will be a relatively straightforward job soon turns dangerous. The missing girl has a troubled past, but what made Aurora suddenly pack her bags and disappear?

Hanlon has her work cut out for her. The stakes are rising, and she needs to get to the bottom of the case before someone else is attacked.

And is Aurora still alive, or is she missing for good?

A gripping new case for feisty female Private Investigator Hanlon. Perfect for fans of Angela Marsons, Robert Bryndza and Lisa Regan.

Bad

This book was horrible. Tedious. Boring. Flip flopped all over the place. Couldn’t even force my self to finish it.

I kept waiting for it to get better

I really struggled with this book. By the time that I figured out what was going on, it was too late. I might have to try it again, because I'm thinking that I wasn't getting into it. It may have been my fault.

Narrator is a drone!

I couldn't listen to the narrator anymore! She's terrible, no inflection to tell the story!

Keeps you guessing

I really enjoyed this book, the characters are all solid and don’t rely on tropes. The story is very well crafted and it has lots or twists and turns. I also like that the so called good guys are flawed and sometimes really unlikeable. It makes them human. Would highly recommend.

Excellent mystery writing, with a twist

I am really enjoying the intricacy of ex police woman Hanlon. The plots are well written and leave you guessing. if you want a good read, books one and two will not disappoint .

Anarchy in Slow Motion

Unusual narration style, read slowly, beautifully and deliberately, reveals a tale of drug dealers wiping each other out, while PI Hanlon investigates. A full panoply of rogues and rascals cause mayhem and murder, What becomes of her dog and the filleted rabbits in her fridge? Strangely mesmeric. ENJOYABLE

great fast paced action

I loved this book and the reader is terrific. The story never flags for a heartbeat. This is the second in the series and I can't believe they were free. I'm already buying the third book and can't wait to listen to more of Hanlon. The reader is superb and each character is very distinct so the story is very easy to follow.

Good listen

I really enjoyed this audio book- especially the narration. Definitely worth a listen. Goodish plot, maybe a little drawn out towards the end but certainly superior to a lot of detective novels around.

Great !

This was better than the first one. Hanlan is such an interesting character .The author feeds us little bits of information about her....keeps us guessing. Great story, some really scary moments!! loved it, looking forward to listening to number 3 in the series.
The narrator is brilliant !!

Missing for Goof

Great narration. The accents fit these stories perfectly. Carolyn Bonnyman you are amazing as the narrator. I enjoyed the plot. I like the way the characters are slowly developing over these two books. Agree with other reviewers that perhaps there was an over eloquence of words that became more fillers than relevance. Good mix of predicability and twists. I enjoyed the book for what it is.

Loved this book

Hanlon is now a P I..This story has lots of tense moments and twists as she tries to find a missing girl, The outcome for the nasty Millar does not come from an expected source.Unexpected ending.

Good storyline but was a bit convoluted

It was very hard to keep track of the characters, particularly as the names were similar. It was irritating. I liked the story but it was ridiculous that she told someone to not say "the c word" and this big burly guy apologised. I mean, get real. If Hanlon as as tough as she is made out to be, and the guy is that tough, neither would care what language he used. It was silly and out of character.

**spoiler alert** How can she be good at her job and yet so conned by people. Two books in a row she's been utterly wrong about a person?? It spoiled the book for me.
