I could not believe this mystery was the author's first published book. It was great, the story line was every changing and leading up to a very unexpected ending.

A good read. It is what I call an easy read. One that keeps your interest but is not real deep. I would recommend it.

This is Jodi Compton's debut novel. Speaking both as an avid reader and writer I can't say enough nice things about Compton's first effort. The twists and turns in this thriller fit nicely with the rollercoaster ride missing-persons investigator, Sarah Pribek embarks on in search of her missing husband. But wait, there's more! Compton's sequel - Sympathy between Humans - is equal to, or perhaps better, than 37th Hour.

Ms Compton, I'm telling anyone who'll listen, "This lady's a champ!"

Great and suspenseful! Stories of being lost and being found by dectectives that put their whole selves into the job. Finding missing people has a method, but that method is useless when a detective goes missing...

A very suspenseful read. Jodi Compton's first novel. It was well written, kept me on the edge throughout the book and she wrapped up the final part of the book in a manner that would suggest another novel to follow at a later date. I'm looking forward to her next work of art.

I was impressed with this new author so much I have already ordered her second book which happens to also include the main caracter from this one, Sarah Pribek. The story was suspenseful, lots of twists and turns. I couldn't put it down. Jodi's characters are believable, some you like, some you want to hate..., complex adults. In any event, I can't wait to meet them again.
