Publisher's Summary

From the groundbreaking author of 55 comes an extraordinary new thriller....

The Kane family, Lorcan, Naiyana and their young son, relocate from Perth to Kallayee, an abandoned mining town in the Great Victoria Desert to start over again, free from their chequered past. 

The town seems like the perfect getaway: peaceful. Quiet. Remote. Somewhere they won’t be found.  

But life in Kallayee isn’t quite as straightforward as they hope. There are noises in the earth, mysterious shadows and tracks in the dust as if the town is coming back to life. 

But the family can’t leave. No one can talk sense into them.

And now, no one can talk to them at all.

They’ve simply vanished. 

Now it's up to Detective Emmaline Taylor to find them… before it’s too late.

Critic Reviews

"Delargy manages to turn the wide-open deserted Outback into something intensely claustrophobic and chilling." (Russ Thomas)

"Intense, insightful and impossible to put down, Vanished is a gripping tale of greed and betrayal, burning with tension under a harsh Australian sun." (Caz Frear)

"Powered through this in two sittings. Vanished ratchets up the tension page after page, playing out in a perfect isolated setting with such a claustrophobic feel, and so vividly painted you could step right in." (Rob Scragg)

Boring, uninteresting, far to long.

This was the most boring book that I had the misfortune of listening to, story could have been told in 5 minutes it just stretched on forever.
