While this is another excellent adventure novel for Del and his girlfriend, Sabrina, the subject matter is darker than the previous two novels in the series. It doesn’t detract from the exciting pace, plot twists and wisecracking I’ve come to enjoy in these stories.

In this third entry in the series, Del and Sabrina are in Vegas for a literary convention when the friend they’re meant to meet for dinner disappears. This triggers a hunt that leads our intrepid duo, ably assisted by housemate, Mo, who gets a bigger part and uses it to great effect. From here the plot twists and turns, delivering some clever surprises and keeping the tension high to the dramatic finale.

This is pure escapism of the best kind – fun, entertaining and driven by great characters.  I’m looking forward to the next book in the series already.

Description

Five teenage girls from a small town in Oregon disappear without a trace.

Were they kidnapped, or have the five friends perpetrated a massive hoax? Nine hundred miles away in Las Vegas, a woman with a dark secret vanishes on her way to meet friends for dinner.

Those friends are Del Honeycutt and bestselling mystery author Sabrina Spencer, in Las Vegas for a book convention. As Del and Sabrina investigate their friend’s disappearance, they are convinced that she has been abducted, and they begin to uncover the secrets that might have triggered her abduction, secrets that now put Del and Sabrina’s lives in jeopardy.

When clues indicate that the five missing girls might also be in Las Vegas, the situation takes a new turn, directly into the unthinkable.

Once again, Del and Sabrina find themselves in deep trouble and marked for death, and they only have a few hours to solve the case or their friend and the five young girls will be gone forever.
