Το δεύτερο βιβλίο της σειράς αστυνομικών με ηρωίδα την δημοσιογράφο Ρόμπιν Μπάλανταιν. Το ίδιο καλό με το πρώτο βιβλίο της σειράς.

Sampson's second work, Out of Mind, has Robin Ballantyne researching a documentary series on missing persons, a quest that will include the disappearance of colleague Melanie Jacobs.

This book is about a woman who goes on a quest to find a colleague who is missing. She chases her first lead which lands her on the other side of the world. She faces threats from unexpected sources. When you think you may know they answer, you find that you really do not.

Main storyline was interesting and had good twists. Subplots were unnecessary and distracting. Characters may have been more believable if I'd read FALLING OFF AIR first.

A war correspondent is missing and little seems to be done to find out why. Strong characters and interesting sub-plots.
