Editorial Reviews


"This thrilling story is a dramatic entanglement of mystery, deception and teen romance.  The action flows like a brisk mountain stream interspersed with rapids, holding suspense to last page."
Kirkus Review

"Grace is a spunky, independent, nature girl who doesn't need a boy to save her. With wilderness survival, a juicy love triangle, and more twists and turns than a roller coaster, this fast-paced novel had me holding my breath until the very last page--and still begging for more!" - Kimberly Derting (author of the popular Body Finder series)  

Johannes has done a marvelous job of creating a suspense-filled mystery with surprises that keep you guessing all the way to the end. Untraceable is a thoroughly engrossing and riveting page-turner."- IndieReader

"This story is action-packed and very funny in some parts. There is even a bit of young romance...There is a strong message of wildlife conservation, so it is somewhat educational in that aspect." Reviewed by Molly Burkemper for "Readers Favorite"

2009 AmazonBreakthrough Novel Quarterfinalist (under the original title of Grace Under Fire) - Judges Reviews:

"This story starts out with a reads like theyoung woman were narrating it to a friend, and had the ring of a young person'sstyle and intensity. Original in premise and style, and good use of background...Good story!" - Sue Grafton, author of bestselling Kinsey Milhone series

"This murdermystery .. moves along at a brisk clip, and itfeels as if we already have some important clues. We look forward to seeingwhat's in the case file and what Grace and her motorbike, Luci, will be up tonext." - Sue Monk Kidd, author of Secret Life of Bees

From the Author

Dear Reader:

This book has been a long time coming.
When I started it a couple years back, I had no idea if this teen thriller would ever see the light of day. After many ups and downs in publishing, it came down to just me. I believed in this book when no one else did.
The idea for Untraceable first came to me one day when my hubby came back from a camping trip. He said (in a British accent!), "I was so far out in the wilderness that crazy people could do anything and easily get away with it." 
At the time, I noted it but put the comment away.  It was the seed that got planted in my imagination, only to bloom later. 
A year later, I visited Cherokee, North Carolina with my family. Amidst the beauty and peaceful setting of the Smoky Mountains, I came across something that deeply disturbed me. Something I could not fathom or understand. Something that I never expected to still exist in today's world.
That gave me an idea and passion for this book. It inspired me to create a suspenseful thriller that still holds a splash of romance, while addressing some concerns I have with how some choose to treat nature and animals. Even today.
I created Grace because I felt I wasn't seeing someone like her in today's books. I love all of the paranormal and dystopic books out there, but I noticed a trend.  There were tons of strong, bada$$ girls - but they were always placed in imaginary words with special magical powers that made them strong.
I set out to create a character who is strong, yet feminine and funny. Someone who is independent in today's world. Our world. A girl who could take care of herself in real life and whose life does NOT revolve around mean boys or bad hair days. Grace's life revolves around something more. Something deep that she cares for. Because I think we don't give these real girls enough air time or enough credit in our books. 
is my way of making a small difference while somehow, just maybe, shedding a ray of light on a very dark spot in this world. Don't get me wrong, this book is fun, thrilling, and mysterious - oh yeah - and there are also two hot boys and some great kissing. :) But underneath all of that is a hint of something horrible replaced with a small thread of hope.

Finally, I have a favor. As you know it is very hard to stand out and get reviews. The reader now has the power to help a book stand out! I would really appreciate hearing from you and seeing your reviews - whether you loved it or hated it! :)

I hope you like it and I would love to hear from you anytime! You can email me at or visit me online at

Thank you for spending your time reading Untraceable! It means a lot to me because I know there are a million or more books you could have chosen!
