Description

At age twenty, Leena O'Neil walked away from her old life. Anything to avoid becoming a lawyer like her mother and older sister, Georgia. Three years later, Georgia contacts her, convinced that her husband is trying to kill her rather than divorce her. Reluctantly, Leena agrees to help. But the stakes go up when Georgia’s husband, Mark, is murdered. Now she wonders if the person who killed Mark is out to get Georgia as well. Armed with several online courses in criminology and investigative strategies, Leena considers herself "almost a private investigator" and she sets out to uncover the truth.
   Disappearing Act is the first in a series of mysteries featuring rookie private investigator Leena O'Neil.

Editorial Reviews

"Readers will likely find themselves connecting with Leena. Over the course of the novel, she deals with issues of discovering her identity and complex family relationships and friendships...The high interest topic, relatable protagonist, and gripping plot will be of interest to reluctant readers, English language learners, and strong readers looking for a quick read. Although the 'Rapid Reads' series is geared toward adults, I believe that it will appeal to older teens as well. Campbell Gaetz left several loose ends untied at the end of the novel, leaving readers on the edge of their seats with anticipation for Leena’s next adventure."

— CM Magazine

"Has a fast moving plot with well developed characters which are keymarks of this series designed for ESL and Literacy programmes. This book is an excellent addition to the series."

— Anne P, LibraryThing Early Reviewer
