With a cast of compelling characters and a chilling plot, Without a Trace sets off at a cracking pace from page one and never slows down.
I loved it - both compelling and incredibly moving.
Involving, sophiticated, intelligent and suspenseful - everything a great crime thriller should be.
Mari Hannah has a rare gift. She can write compelling, page-turning suspense with the very best, but she adds heart to every page. Kate Daniels is a character to cherish, and Mari is a writer at the very top of her game.
A personal tragedy puts Kate Daniels at the heart of an international incident, testing her skills as a detective. Without A Trace is a deft blend of emotional drama and crime procedural that kept me hooked to the very end. Mari Hannah has a talent for writing about the light and dark of life, and creates characters who feel so realistic they almost pop from the page.
Mari Hannah is in the uppermost echelon of British crime writers and Without a Trace demonstrates why. It's her best book yet - compelling, emotional and intricately plotted with a procedural authenticity few can match. A stunning novel.
A gripping, twisty police procedural - fans of the Kate Daniels series will love this one.
