Gone Without a Trace by Patricia Bradley

Back Cover Blurb:
The past is repeating itself—and time is running out

It’s been more than two years since homicide detective Livy Reynolds’s cousin disappeared from Logan Point. Unlike most people in her hometown, Livy has never believed that Robyn left voluntarily. When Dallas private investigator Alex Jennings contacts her concerning a senator’s missing granddaughter who was last seen in Logan Point, Livy notices eerie similarities between the two disappearances. With self-doubt plaguing her after killing a teenager in the line of duty and an almost instant dislike of the self-assured PI, she’s finding this investigation an uphill battle. But with the prospect of finding her cousin on the horizon, she’ll have to find a way to work with Alex—before it’s too late.

Award-winning author Patricia Bradley keeps you on the edge of your seat with a case—and a relationship—that is anything but certain.

“Patricia Bradley has hit a home run. The suspense is high, the romance is sweet, and the villain is one you want to see caught and brought to justice. Gone without A Trace, a novel of forgiveness and finding one’s place in the world, brings home the point that while not everything.


Read an Excerpt:


A little before midnight, a small jon boat skimmed across the lake located just outside of Logan Point. The electric trolling motor hardly broke the deathly quiet of the first hours of the New Year. The man at the tiller pulled his coat tighter with his free hand and lowered his head against the cold, dense fog that shrouded him.

The fog was both a blessing and a curse. No one could see him, but neither could he see anyone. In the bottom of the flat metal boat lay a large black bag, and his gaze kept returning to it. If he was caught dumping it, he would pay more than a fine this time.

A low horn raked his senses, and he jerked his head around. Dead ahead through the thinning fog, twin lights from a barge bore down on him like avenging angels.

He swore. There weren’t supposed to be any barges coming downriver tonight. He gunned the thrust on the trolling motor, barely getting out of the barge’s path. The wake rocked the small boat, and he fought the dizzying motion.

That had been close, but at least he knew he was in the deepest part of the lake. He decreased the thrust, putting the boat in a controlled drift. Once he regained his balance, he hefted the weighted bag. The boat rocked in the water and almost tipped over as he slid the body over the side.

He risked a light on the water and within seconds only ripples gave evidence of his deed. He paused briefly to stare at the widening rings, and then pointed the twelve-foot boat toward shore.

This was not an auspicious beginning to the New Year.]

Well, I'm confused. Is it "Gone Without a Trace" or "With a Trace"? I see both titles in both posts. Either way, this series seems to be my kind of reading and I'm looking forward to finding the first two books. Please enter my name to win the third. cjajsmommy /at/ gmail dot com

So sorry I was AWOL! But foot surgery took my mind for a few days. That's funny--from foot to head. Thank you all for your comments!
