When a stranger appears on Julia's doorstep and offers employment as a companion to horror writer Amaris Sinclair, it doesn't take her long to accept. But the job isn't without a catch. The world believes that Amaris is dead and Julia will be required to abandon her life completely. She doesn't have much of a life anymore, though. Her husband, who the media has dubbed "The Midwestern Bernie Madoff," has committed suicide leaving her alone to face his betrayed clients. None of her friends have answered her calls or spoken to her in months. Vanishing and starting a new life sounds very tempting.
The Vanishing reads like an old fashioned gothic romance, and I mean that in the best way possible. I can't wait to get my hands on more books by this author.
