Vanished by Barbara Ann Derksen


This is a very good thriller that kept me reading long after the light should have been turned off for the night.  Yes, I was sleep deprived  but I always am after a good book.  It proved to be a good read with some violence.  However, the violence was placed for effect and not just for the sake of violence.  The characters are real and their faith shines through amidst their struggles.

When their friends are kidnapped, Andréa Wilton and Brian Strait travel to Haiti in search for them.  There they experience voodoo,  murders, and even more missing people.  These friends put their own lives on the line as they search for their friends.  Andrea and Brian discover a lot about themselves and each other during their daring escapades and narrow escapes.

This is the first of this author’s work I have read but it will definitely not be my last.

I was given this book by CWA Review Crew for an open and honest review. The opinions expressed here are solely my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the FTC’s 16 CFR, Part 525 “Guide Concerning the use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising.”
