Former police officers Ellen Brazil and Brian Lynx have joined forces to start a successful missing persons investigation firm which has just been contracted to find the wife of bodybuilder Will Endersbe. Ellen discovers that a number of women with similar features and hair color have also vanished in the Worcester area. Ellen and Brian suspect a serial kidnapper is to blame, and without a body, the police are happy to leave the case in their hands to solve.
Hoping the women are still alive, Ellen digs for clues and races to find the women, despite her troubled private life and a meddlesome stepfather with a violent secret.

I really enjoyed listening to this book. From start to end I wanted to keep listening. The pace of the book kept consistant throughout. I liked the main character and the way her family story was told within the main story. I look forward to listening to more by this author.
I listened to the audio book version of this novel which I received in exchange for an honest review.
This was my first M A Comely book which also happens to be the first one in the Intention series. It's a good introduction to main characters Ellen and Brian, two ex police officers, now running their own PI business, and a promising start to a great new series.
I enjoyed the story-line, the pace of the novel and the writing. I have now purchased more of the author's books and look forward to reading them all.
While I found the book itself great, the narrator did get me confused a bit at first: she sounds older than 30-year-old main character Ellen, and I wasn't sure about Ellen's behaviour based purely on that. It was all good though once I heard Ellen's age mentioned in the story as her character made more sense.
Two ex police officers turned private investigators are called upon to delve into the disappearance of Will Endersbe's wife. Has she been abducted? Killed? They set off and find themselves submerged in the actions of a barbaric individual.
This is a well paced investigatory story, the first of the series. I enjoyed getting to know the main characters(the partnership between Ellen and Brian, and the flawed relationship that Ellen and her brother,Jim, have with their mum). I will definitely look forward to seeing how the characters develop further during the series.
Excellent story. Narrator very good. Storyline is fast paced & has lots of things to keep you interested. I hated having to turn this off to talk to people!
I've bought kindle copy as well. I will read it but will listen to it again.
I LOVED IT BUT I DO LIKE MY KINDLE OR BOOK..

"Sole Intention Audiobook"
Her tone and cadence, the way she drew the reader into the story. She was the perfect voice for the main character.
Yes. Hated to stop.
Love this author but the combination of the author and the reader is amazing! Hope they do more books together.
