"Mystery and tragedy on a yoga retreat"

Fresh Fiction Review

Vanishing Point
Daniel Pembrey

Reviewed by Clare O'Beara
Posted November 9, 2016

Suspense Psychological | Novella / Short Story

Versatile British author Daniel Pembrey has added another country to his list; having previously given us stories set in lands of Europe, Africa and America, he has chosen to visit Mexico this time. VANISHING POINT focuses on a yoga retreat. What could possibly go wrong among such good, kind people?

John Farnsworth is the only man attending the yoga classes, and he tells a group mindfulness session that he has come because his wife died at sea near here, a year previously. He had to provide DNA of hers to test against the body. Now he needs to set his mind at rest about her trip and why she loved yoga. In flashback chapters we see Jenny's solo journey to the retreat centre.

This is a psychological chiller which mixes past and present, giving glimpses of lives and desires. We learn about some yogic principles and some shiftier practices, because even in such a beautiful location as Cancun, all cannot be perfect.

As VANISHING POINT is a short novella I won't tell any more except that I see strong similarities with Daniel Pembrey's other works - international travel, diplomacy, relationships that are more complex and less complete than they ought to be. If you fancy some beach reading this summer, but prefer to mix in a mystery, this exotic cocktail might suit you.

Learn more about Vanishing Point


Lawyer John Farnsworth returns to the site of his wife’s disappearance the year before: a yoga retreat on the Yucatán Peninsula led by the sinister Yogi Raja. As his former wife’s story becomes clearer, John’s own life starts to unravel, with shocking consequences. Can we ever escape the pull of our pasts? A chilling, enigmatic read.
