A jaw-dropping novel of psychological suspense that asks, If the love of your life disappeared without a trace, how far would you go to find out why?
This book was a complete trip. I seriously looked at my husband and was like "I don't understand. How can someone just disappear and leave it like they never existed?", to which he was unsure how to reply.
Hannah returns from a conference excited. Excited to be home and in the arms of the one she loves. However when she arrives everything is about as far from normal as it could be. The best part is she doesn't know why. Why all her boyfriend's belongings are gone, why he is nowhere to be found and why every trace of him has been wiped from her life.
Gone Without a Trace is a twisting and turning story. It will reveal secrets, lies and truths that even the person committing them doesn't realize. Follow Hannah as she untangles the invisible webs that have become her life. Definitely a story that keeps you on your toes and pushes your critical thinking to the limit.
