Eileen Carr's Vanished in the Night is an emotion rich journey for the readers to take.
Veronica Osbourne's brother has been missing for twenty years. One day, two police officers come to her door; she figures that her father is up to his old tricks again and vows to leave him to his fate. Unfortunately, the police officers are there regarding her brother. Zach McKnight, one of the police officers at her door, is intrigued by Veronica.
There are a lot of players in Carr's story that offer a lot of red herrings as to who the bad guy is. The emotional deluge is huge and I found myself cheering on the bad guy, honestly. The relationship between Veronica and Zach was almost secondary to me. The story overall was exceptional with regards to the emotional offering.
She doesn’t trust cops . . .
Veronica Osborne has had enough problems with the police, thanks to her volatile father. So when tall, strapping Sergeant Zach McKnight shows up at her door, she’s prepared for anything—except the news that her beloved missing brother, Max, has been dead for nearly twenty years . . . ever since he ran away.
. . . until she meets one who’d risk everything to protect her.
Appalled when the police suspect her father of Max’s murder, Veronica begins her own investigation. But as her surprising role in her brother’s disappearance surfaces, so do more bodies. The ghosts of Max’s past are working hard to hide the truth, while another, more sinister force will do anything to expose it. How far will a killer go to get revenge? And can Zach stop him before he targets the woman Zach’s coming to love?
