Book 22- Caught

Caught is an easy to read thriller by Harlan Coben.

Haley, age 17, goes missing. She just vanishes, without a trace. She's a good girl, an athlete, a nice kid, well liked, and there's no reason for her to run away. She just disappears, and for three months her community, her family, her friends, everyone, assumes the worst.

Wendy Tynes is an expose tv reporter whose specialty is revealing sex offenders that she catches through cyberspace. While working on a sting with the local police she targets Dan Mercer, a social worker and man who is known as a friend to kids in need. However, Dan isn't what he seems and Wendy's investigation becomes more complicated than what she could have imagined.

As she gets further and further into the case, she discovers she lots of things are not as they seem. She starts questioning her own motives as well as those entwined in her story.

Great thriller, easy to read, a nice "beach" read.
