Reviews

"A deliciously complex blend of psychological suspense and ghost story, THE VANISHING is pitch-perfect on every note, from its mansion setting in the pine-scented northern wilderness, to the secrets and specters lurking around every corner."--Erin Hart, author of The Book of Killowen
"Webb once again mines the secrets of an old mansion for an effective contemporary supernatural thriller."--Publishers Weekly

"Webb expertly builds suspense and offers a thought-provoking tease in the final pages."--Booklist
"The haunting twists and turns of THE VANISHING left me as breathless as the beautiful setting of Havenwood itself. Reminiscent of the classics The Haunting of Hill House and Rebecca, this novel grabbed me on the first page and didn't let go. A comelling, frightening, deeply satisfying tale that is as rich in setting as it is in storytelling."--Suzanne Palmieri, author of The Witch of Little Italy
"[The] opening line of Wendy Webb's contemporary Gothic thriller, THE VANISHING, pays homage to DuMaurier's classic [Rebecca]. But Webb infuses her narrator, Julia Bishop, with modern sensibilities, and manipulates the genre's melodrama skillfully."--Minneapolis Star Tribune

"A brisk thriller tinged with gothic elements.... Careening through sΓ©ances and ghostly encounters leaves the reader breathless."--Kirkus Reviews
