Book Review-Gone But Not Missed-A Nathan Miccoli Mystery-A.R. Kennedy

Friday, March 14, 2014


I did enjoy reading this mystery and for me at least it was a fast read. Poor Lillian, who goes by several other names to various people is in mourning (both her parents died in a car accident and her favorite Aunt suddenly will not speak to her) and really does not want to start meeting men. Her best friend has other ideas and almost drives poor Lillian insane. But when Anne actually sets up an account on an on-line dating service and makes a date for Lillian--things get crazy. The only thing that keeps Lillian going is her little dog-Laude.

When Anne can't reach Lillian for two weeks she calls the police-but they don't really believe Lillian is missing. In walks Nathan Miccoli-an almost police detective who is bound and determined to find Lillian! If I am not mistaken there may be a sequel to this book-----yes, I will read it!!


About the Book: (from Amazon)

Lillian Brannon wakes up on Valentine's Day in an exact replica of her bedroom but the only item that she believes is authentic is her dog, Laude. She is held captive in her kidnapper's basement apartment, summoned upstairs once a week for a chaste dinner. But will his kindness last, and more importantly, why isn’t anyone looking for her? Lillian’s story is interwoven with that of Nathan, a NYPD officer, who is intrigued by Lillian’s disappearance- how can a young woman be gone for two weeks before a Missing Person Report is filed? Local police believe Lillian has voluntarily abandoned a life she didn’t like. Lillian’s best friend convinces Nathan the authorities are wrong. With no jurisdiction, no resources, and no witnesses, he is compelled by the pictures of Lillian with her sweet smile and sparkling green eyes to obsessively take up the case. Armed with Lillian’s keys and personal information, he spends hours, then days in her home trying to find clues that will lead him to her.
