Book Description

REVIEWS:
If I had an award to hand out for "best hook in a novel," Clancy would win the gold medal. The minute I started reading my eyeballs nearly popped out of my head. Traceless keeps the action moving along at a nice pace and crosses the finish line with the momentum of an Olympic sprinter. - Belinda, Every Free Chance Book Reviews

If you like authors such as Gillian Flynn or Rachel Abbott then this is definitely a novel for you. This is a super fast paced thriller that keeps you guessing right to the end.
Although it is nominally a missing persons book it actually turns more into a psychological thriller as the investigators try to unravel what really happened.
The ending was definitely a surprise, you will never guess it. It marks the book out from others in the genre. ~ John Forrester, The Crime Scene

DESCRIPTION:

Adam Stoltz vanishes in the middle of the night.
His girlfriend, Darcey Ackerman, is the last person to see him alive.

Someone is watching her, and she is about to discover that there is a fine line between love - and hate...
Traceless - some people should never be found.

This is a great pick for any readers who enjoy crime novels or CSI. The author does an excellent job with the characters. ~ Maria Miller

I would highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to get to the 'nitty-gritty' of why people do what they do. ~ Maureen Reil


There are so many twists and turns in this book it is hard to put the book down... I wasn't able to and had to read the whole thing in one day. Amazing writing; yet another hit from Joanne Clancy! ~ Ashley Kennedy


This was a fast-paced crime thriller. It allowed the reader to try to solve the crime and work alongside the investigative team. I definitely see a sequel in the future. ~ Sue Leonhardt

4.0 out of 5 stars A mystery within a mystery!! June 26, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
One night, Adam Stoltz simply vanished from the face of the earth. Where is he? What happened to him on that fateful night? Is he dead or alive? Who is behind all this? These and many other questions are posed to try and solve the intriguing mystery behind the disappearance of this young man in Joanne Clancy's 'Traceless'.

Adam Stoltz and his fiancee Darcey Ackerman are travelling in their campervan through the desolate Wicklow Mountains in darkness. At one point, another vehicle reaches them and the driver urges Adam to stop, saying there were sparks coming out of the campervan's exhaust. While Darcey waits in her seat, Adam goes out to investigate. Suddenly she hears a loud bang and the next thing she knows is this man entering beside her in the campervan with a gun. He ties Darcey's hands behind her back and forces her out of the campervan and into his vehicle.

Darcey manages to escape from his vehicle and hide in the pitch-black thick undergrowth. The attacker tries to find her but after some time he gives up and leaves her there in the cold and dark. After many hours hiding, Darcey hears a car coming through that road and she immediately springs out of her hiding place, stops the oncoming car and is rescued.

Led by D.S.George Ellis, an intensive police investigation ensues but from the outset nothing seems to make sense. With no body or murder weapon found, Darcey's strange behaviour and her account of events begin to raise police suspicions and everyone's finger is pointed at her. Gina Jones, a newspaper crime reporter decides to dig deep in this story and is determined to find out what actually happened on that night and find Adam Stoltz.

5.0 out of 5 stars "Where's The Body"....... July 25, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I like Joanne Clancy's crime novels...They are always intriguing, murder/mysteries from different view points from all the characters all the time...If you like CSI shows you should enjoy this book too...It had many shocking twists and turns especially at the ending which I definitely did not see coming...Quick page turner that I couldn't put down...

They are traveling around the world and end up in Wicklow Mountain....Adam Stoltz gets out to help a stranger and girlfriend Darcy Ackerman gets attacked...Adam goes missing with out a trace...No hard evidence...Police Investigator D.S. George Ellis starts pressuring Darcy along with the news reporters..She is not acting like a weeping, brokenhearted girlfriend concerned over her missing boyfriend....In fact, she is as cold as ice....

Where is Adam...

I will always look forward to this author's next book...

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant! Realistic! Unforgettable! July 28, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
Jonanne's approach to the story was addictive! As a fan of mystery-thriller television shows, this is the first mystery-thriller book I've read.

The characters were so vivid, the story was so well written, the ending was not the conclusion one would expect, I couldn't put the book down, brilliantly written from beginning to end, I felt as if I was a part of the book, feeling the characters emotions, and hypothesizing the ending as the mystery unraveled. As murder/mysteries go, the ending was that of a real life mystery, unanswered questions and left me guessing until the end.

I enjoyed it very much, it wasn't too long of a book nor too short of a book, I found myself reading this book until the very end without stopping!

The second book to the series' review to come soon!

I received a free ebook copy in return for an honest review.

Traceless will have you on the edge of your seat from the very beginning. You won’t be able to put this book down! It keeps you guessing to the end. From page one I was hooked and wanted to know what happened. There were several times I thought I had it all figured out but I was sooo wrong...

Adam Stoltz and his girlfriend Darcey Ackerman are on an evening drive through the Wicklow Mountains when somebody pulls them over claiming there might be something wrong with their campervan. While Darcey has a bad feeling, Adam trusts the stranger. Little do Adam and Darcey know that this night will change everything for them. Being trustful, Adam gets out making sure everything is alright while Darcey waits inside. But then Adam vanishes and the stranger attacks Darcey. Somehow, Darcey is able to escape...

A major police investigation, led by D.S.George Ellis, starts. However, Adam remains missing without a trace. Darcey, being the last person to have seen Adam alive, has to face many questions. Soon everybody starts doubting Darcey’s description of the events and the victim turns into a suspect. Questions are raised – What happened in the mountains? How could Darcey escape? Is she telling the truth? Where is Adam? Was Adam murdered?
You will start questioning everybody and everything while reading this book!

I really enjoyed reading this book. It is a fast paced pageturner that I read in one session.
However, there are many jumps in point of view that are a little disturbing and I needed some time to get used to that. In addition, I would have liked to learn a little bit more about the characters because they seem a little „flat“. Nevertheless, I can recommend reading this book.
