Review by Colorado Cowgirl:
Virtually Gone is a good, tight mystery that is well-paced. It kept me involved from the first page to the last.
I especially loved the use of high-tech police procedures like DNA profiling and tracking cell phone information. The bad guy was bad and I did not figure out the plot until the end.
The good guys were very interesting and there were backstories of a romance between a detective (Connor) and a reporter – which is always dicey.
Julie, the reporter, had a lot of past issues to work through so it gave the story a nice depth.
Matt, Connor’s partner also had issues with anger and unresolved problems with the unsolved murder of his half-sister years before.
That made the characters seem real.
The story was based in Victoria, British Columbia, which I truly love. But even the best cities can have evil people lurking in the shadows.
I was a little confused at the beginning with all the characters and back-stories but they soon sorted themselves out. All in all, this is a taut, suspenseful, and believable murder/rape mystery that you will love.
