Book ~ "No Trace" (2016) Brenda Chapman

From Goodreads ~ Ryan Green disappears one day after school without a trace. His family is caught in a living nightmare. Six months later, the police have no leads. Desperate for answers, the parents contact private investigator Anna Sweet. 

The trail has gone cold but Anna doesn't give up without turning over every clue. When a body is found in the woods, Anna and the police fear the worst. 

Who would want to harm Ryan Green and who will be next? Anna's skills are about to be tested to their limits. 

Anna and Jada, both former police officers, run a private investigations firm.  Nick is their office manager and is dating Anna. Jada is on vacation and Nick, a part-time actor, is in Vancouver shooting a movie.  Anna is hired by the parents to look into the disappearance of their son, Ryan, a popular high school student, who hasn't been seen or heard from in six months.

In the meantime, Anna's sister, Cheri, has decided to divorce her husband, a police officer who had dumped Anna years ago to be with Cheri. Anna is concerned how this is affecting their young son. And there are rumors that Nick is dating an actress while on his movie shoot.

I've read quite a few books by this author and I liked this one. It's a quick read at about 55 pages. It's set in the author's hometown of Ottawa. I like this author's writing style. It is written in first person perspective in Anna's voice.

Though it's the fifth in the Anna Sweet series, it works as a stand alone.
