Publisher's Summary

Lauren Heller is in the middle of a nightmare. Viciously attacked on a night out with her husband, Roger, she wakes 24 hours later to find that he has disappeared without trace.

With the police investigation at a standstill, Lauren has no choice but to turn to the only other person who is able to help: Roger's estranged brother.

Nick Heller is a private investigator for a corporate security firm. He is also ex-Army Special Forces. If he is to find his brother, Nick is going to have to call upon all his skills. For it appears that Roger may have made a powerful enemy - an enemy who will do whatever it takes to stop Nick finding him.

    Story
    "No Jack Reacher but a good yarn!"
    Would you listen to Vanished again? Why?

    I found the story teller's voice compelling and it made the listening experience enjoyable. I will leave it in my library to listen to again.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I was looking for another Jack Reacher character which is for me a hard act to follow. I found Nick Heller to be a believable character which will perhaps appeal more to some readers.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I found the relationship between the lead character and his nephew interesting in it's development.

    "It could have been better"

    Not the best from Finder but a good listen. There are some disappointments in the plot but the characters are the most boring. But Finder and his style make the complete package worth a listen.

    "Good but not great"

    I did enjoy this book even though the plot got a bit unbelievable towards the end. Holter Graham did a great job narrating which made the book enjoyable.

    "The plot is weak."

    There is no doubt that Joseph Finder is a talented story teller and I find myself engrossed in the story from the start. Joesph Finders life experiences are evident in the financial and business detail which is interesting and realistic. However by the end of the story I realise that the plot is unbelievable - the plot is just weak. This is the case with each of the Joseph Finder books that I have listened to. I get to the end of the story, the completion of the plot, and I am disappointed every time. The 'Vanished' is probably one of the worst. I guess I will keep reading / listening to Finder because I am sure that sooner or later he will get the plots sorted out (maybe get some advice from an editor) and then his stories will be excellent.
