accomplished debut The Vanishing Season will grip readers
from the opening page to the stunning conclusion.
Ellery Hathaway knows a thing or two about serial

officer in sleepy Woodbury, MA, where a bicycle theft
still makes the newspapers. No one there knows she was
once victim number seventeen in the grisly story of
serial killer Francis Michael Coben. The only one who
When three people disappear from her town in three years—
all around her birthday—Ellery fears someone knows her
secret. Someone very dangerous. Her superiors dismiss her
concerns, but Ellery knows the vanishing season is coming
and anyone could be next. She contacts the one man she
knows will believe her: the FBI agent who saved her from
a killer all those years ago.
Agent Reed Markham made his name and fame on the back of
the Coben case, but his fortunes have since turned. His
marriage is in shambles, his bosses think he's washed up,
and worst of all, he blew a major investigation. When
Ellery calls him, he can’t help but wonder: sure, he
rescued her, but was she ever truly saved? His greatest
triumph is Ellery’s waking nightmare, and now both of
them are about to be sucked into the past, back to the
case that made them...with a killer who can't let go.
