Believable characters, unexpected plot twists, and surprising outcomes all contribute to a delightful mystery experience!

5.0 out of 5 stars “Nancy A. Hughes's VANISHED is mesmerizing. It's scary. Imagine your infant being kidnapped and the police accusing you of doing it. The characters range from loveable to horrible. Along the way, the reader flies in a private plane, no less, from coast to coast in search of the baby.”
