Format: Paperback
I found it very difficult to put this book down. It kept me up until late at night and stopped me from doing anything else for nearly three days!
The story unravels itself slowly, bringing together a complex tale full cunning twists and intrigue.
Throughout the book the sympathy is with Marielle, the lonely mother who has been through so much already, only to have her only son taken away from her as well.
The reader is left continuously wandering what's going to happen next and if the boy will be found alive... I guess there's only one way to find out!
If you like Danielle Steel, you'll love "Vanished"

Format: Mass Market Paperback
An enjoyable story if you've nothing better to read but rather predictable and one feels that the main character needs a kick up the backside. I've read many of Danielle's books in the past but find them all very similar with the same clichéd, `beautiful sufferer' who really needs a good shake up.

Synopsis/blurb....

His name was Roy Sands, and he had everything to look forward to. He was getting out of the service and coming home to marry his beautiful Fiancée. He had his debts paid, money in the bank, and a happy new life ahead of him. Then he disappeared.

Having decided to follow Pronzini's Nameless detective last month and been delighted enough to select the first outing "The Snatch" as my March pick of the month, I was keen to read this second instalment in the series - The Vanished.
Nameless is employed by Sands' fiancée Elaine to track him down after he goes missing. Sands and Elaine have made plans now that he's left the army. They are committed to each other. The wedding's in a few weeks and now Elaine's worried by Ray's unexplained disappearance.
The search takes Nameless out of San Francisco and north to Eugene where the last trace of Sands originated. He interviews his ex-army buddies, without any of them shedding too much light on the quiet, committed Ray; the contemplative, non-hell raising veteran Ray whose only concern seemed to be towards Elaine and their future life together.
Nameless picks up a glimmer of a clue that points him towards Germany and the US army base where Ray and his troop were stationed. Frantic at her loss, Elaine agrees for Nameless to fly to Europe. Despite threats against his and Elaine's lives, Nameless doggedly persists with his enquiries. After uncovering further details regarding Ray's recent past in Germany, the trail leads Nameless back to the States and ever closer to providing a solution to the mysterious disappearance. Elaine will be getting answers, even if she won't be hearing any wedding bells.
If at all possible, I actually enjoyed this book more than the first.

Not until the last couple of chapters did I realise that my suspicions were true!!
An excellent read and certainly a book you will not want to put down.

Format: Hardcover
Nameless embarks on his second mystery investigating the disappearance of a young woman's fiance Roy Sands, a soldier just returned home from his last tour in Germany. Coughing up his lungs, Nameless fights to cut the damned weed from his life but fights a losing battle against his addiction. His apartment is a sea of encroaching slobbishness with his neatly ordered collection of pulps the only island of order in the chaos. His first thought after a threatening phone call during the night are the stats on how often this plot event occurs in his pulps. And he's lonely. Elegantly written as always, Pronzini draws on his love of the pulp noirs which he also instills in his lead character and delivers a pleasingly melancholic mystery following Nameless's dogged investigation.
