Robin Light's client was in his prime: mid-twenties and all-American

Robin Light's client was in his prime: mid-twenties and all-American. But Bryan Hayes was no happy-go-lucky guy. For four months he had been looking for his sister, Melissa, a college sophomore who waved goodbye outside her dorm and disappeared without a trace. If it was such a well-planned vanishing act why is Tommy so reluctant to talk? And why does Jill Evans, Melissa's best friend and fatal victim of a bizarre accident, keep figuring into the picture? It's all as baffling as Melissa's disappearance. Combing the campus for clues, Robin has suddenly found herself moving to the head of the class, and closer to the most challenging mystery of her career.

But even though he was as light as straw, maneuvering him into the backseat of my car took more strength than I’d anticipated, and I was covered with sweat by the time I was done. I rolled up the jacket I’d been carrying around for the last couple of months, slid it under his head, then wiped my hands off on my jeans, got into the front seat of my car, started it up, and took off.

While investigating the apparent disappearance of a college girl, pet-store owner and occasional sleuth Robin Light joins forces with the victim's brother to solve the case, only to be confronted with a wide array of suspects that puts her own life in peril.

Bryan Hayes dropped his sister Melissa off at her dorm, agreeing to pick her back up in a few hours. When he returns, Melissa is gone. Four months later, the young lady remains missing. Her mother, dying from cancer, desperately wants to know what happened to her girl.

A fellow night school student provides Bryan with the name of Robin Light, a private investigator and the owner of a pet store that specializes in exotic creatures and assorted reptiles. After proving her own innocence years ago, Robin has made a successful sideline of solving mysteries. When she meets Melissa's mother, Robin immediately accepts the case. With the clock ticking and little to go on, Robin places herself in jeopardy in an attempt to find the truth.

Barbara Black's Robin Light mysteries are pure reading pleasure because of the likable characters, especially the main player and her boyfriend. VANISHING ACT, like the previous tales, includes an engrossing who-done-it and ! a brilliantly but tragically realistic sub-plot starring a troubled teen. This is one series that deserves to stay in the black as fans will feel they were given their money's worth.

Never been to Syracuse University, never even been to Syracuse, NY. Does it matter? No. Vanishing Act, by Barbara Block, sent shivers down my spine and made me rethink my own college days. SU student Melissa Hayes is missing, local and campus police are clueless, suspects abound and only Robin Light can help poor Ms. Hayes' family through the ordeal. Through a series of twists and turns, Robin pulls teeth to get the information some people would rather she not find. Peril, suspense, and a not-so-typical ending leads you to think back to those bygone days at school, and ponder the supposed care-free moments and the loss of youthful innocence.

This was my first Robin Light book. Greatly enjoyed the story, but I felt the mystery resolved itself a little too neatly. I really liked Robin and her boyfriend George. This won't be my last Robin Light book, I now am planning on reading the whole series.
