Five teenage girls from a small town in Oregon disappear without a trace.
Were they kidnapped, or have the five friends perpetrated a massive hoax? Nine hundred miles away, in Las Vegas, a woman with a dark secret vanishes on her way to meet friends for dinner.
Those friends are Del Honeycutt and best-selling mystery author Sabrina Spencer in Las Vegas for a book convention. As Del and Sabrina investigate their friend’s disappearance, they are convinced that she has been abducted, and they begin to uncover the secrets that might have triggered her abduction – secrets that now put Del and Sabrina’s lives in jeopardy.
When clues indicate that the five missing girls might also be in Las Vegas, the situation takes a new turn, directly into the unthinkable.
Once again, Del and Sabrina find themselves in deep trouble and marked for death, and they only have a few hours to solve the case, or their friend and the five young girls will be gone forever.
I’m the author of novels in several genres, including, mystery, thriller, and post-apocalyptic science fiction. Under the name A.R. Cunningham, I’ve also written the Arthur MacArthur series of mysteries for children.
I was born in England, but have spent most of my life living in the U.S.—including 25 years on Cape Cod before moving to Florida. A former interpreter for the deaf and long-time independent bookseller, I’ve been a full-time freelance writer and copy editor for many years. A 4th-degree Master Black belt in Tang Soo Do, I finally retired from active training when my body said, “Enough already! Why are you doing this to yourself?” I’m married, with two grown children and two awesome grandsons. My wife and I spend as much time traveling as we can, and are especially fond of cruising the Caribbean.
I have been gratified by the response to my books. When I published Eden Rising back in the spring of 2013, I had no idea what to expect. When I sold my first few copies, I was excited beyond belief that someone was willing to take a chance on it. Numerous books and thousands of copies later, I am still humbled by the emails I get from readers telling me that my books kept them up late into the night.
In October of 2014, Wisdom Spring made me an official Amazon Bestselling author, a thrill I never thought would happen. But it still comes down to being able to bring a few hours of escape to a reader. That’s what it’s all about for me.
I hope you will try my books. Please feel free to email me with your comments.
Author-preferred Narrator of Mysteries & Thrillers
Narrating audiobooks is highly gratifying. I immerse myself into an author’s story in order to bring it to life for the listener. I’ve enjoyed working with Andrew Cunningham for several years. His books are filled with rich characters, and the stories keep me turning the pages.
I also work as a background actor in movies and TV shows.
For more than 20 years, I worked as a radio news reporter and news writer. I spent half of my broadcasting career at ABC News Radio in the Washington, D.C., bureau. I covered all the federal agencies as well as Congress and the White House. I reported on a wide range of stories during my career, including financial and entertainment industry news.
For nearly 24 years, I worked as a federal government spokesman at three separate agencies—National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), U.S. Mint and Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC).
This was by far my favourite of the series, and Greg Hernandez does an amazing job bringing the suspenseful story to life.
It seems Del and Sabrina are never very far away from a mystery, this time they head to Vegas for a book convention and plan to meet up with a friend for lunch. When she doesn’t arrive, the twosome are concerned, and even more so when there is no sign of her anywhere.
Running alongside this is the story of five girls from a small town in Oregon who are returning home after a trip to the movies. Only they don’t make it home, and instead are abducted with a clear intent on the part of their abductors to sell them on in due course. This topical subject matter gives a fascinating insight into how such a situation might occur. The author ties it into Del & Sabrina’s story with ease, and the journey through the desert is scary and tense.
Del and Sabrina are well established as a couple now, and their closeness grows stronger as they face separate dangers. Del’s witty retorts are still there, despite the dire circumstances -the narrator truly seems to have got into Del’s head since he portrays him so effectively.
Definitely a series I want to hear more about.
