Zoe Whittaker is living a charmed life. She is the beautiful young wife to handsome, charming Wall Street tycoon Henry Whittaker. She is a member of Manhattan’s social elite. She is on the board of one of the city’s most prestigious philanthropic organizations. She has a perfect Tribeca penthouse in the city and a gorgeous lake house in the country. The finest wine, the most up-to-date fashion, and the most luxurious vacations are all at her fingertips.
What no one knows is that five years ago, Zoe’s life was in danger. Back then, Zoe wasn’t Zoe at all. Now her secrets are coming back to haunt her. As the past and present collide, Zoe must decide who she can trust before she—whoever she is—vanishes completely.
The Vanishing Year combines the classic sophistication of Ruth Rendell and A.S.A. Harrison with the thoroughly modern flair of Jessica Knoll. Told from the point-of-view of a heroine who is as relatable as she is enigmatic, The Vanishing Year is an unforgettable new novel by a rising star of the genre.
Roxie and Jen’s Review
If you want to switch genre gears and give something different a try, we highly recommend The Vanishing Year by Kate Moretti. Mystery, intrigue, crazy twists!
Zoe Whittaker seems to have it all. Money, power, a dotting husband. But as the story unfolds we quickly learn there is more than meets the eyes.
Zoe has a past, a past she tries to keep buried desperately.
When her past and present unexpectedly collide, her carefully created life starts crumbling down.
As Zoe tries to find answers with a help of an unexpected ally, danger from her past comes closer and closer. At this point we are completely pulled in trying to guess who to trust, who to steer clear from.
All through out this book there is this foreboding feeling, when you just know that it’s coming, but you don’t know when and how.
Moretti kept us guessing as the story went on and kept us at the edge of our seats.
The Vanishing Year is a well written twisty plot that will have you putting the puzzle pieces together till the very last page.
We highly recommend this outstanding, past paced thriller!!!
