From the back of the book:
After a bomb explodes in a working-class neighborhood of Barcester, Massachusetts, police sergeant Jason Logan fights to keep order and assist the injured while desperately waiting for aid to arrive. Is the mist from the bomb preventing ambulances and fire trucks from coming in? Or ha something far more dire occurred?
As the hours tick by, Logan tracks the terrorist mastermind–who he learns is not done wreaking havoc. Cut off from modern medical resources, nurse-practitioner Kaya de los Santos treats the injured and soothes the fearful, unaware that her teenaged son Ben is on the run from both the cops and the terrorists.
The vanished begin to battle for survival against enemies they’ve always known–and forces they’ve never even imagined.
About the author:
Kathryn Mackel is the author of adult and youth fiction and is an accredited screenwriter. She pioneered the supernatural subgenre known as “Christian Chillers,” including the critically acclaimed THE SURROGATE, THE DEPARTED, and THE HIDDEN. Her fantasy offerings include books 1 and 2 of the Birthright Project, OUTRIDERS and TRACKERS.
My two cents:
Kathy Mackel has done it again. In my opinion, she is one of the CBA’s best writers and most original thinkers . . . and probably it’s best-kept secret. VANISHED
is a thrill-ride from start to finish. With real characters facing all-too-real challenges, both externally, in a strange mist that has enveloped their neighborhood after a bomb attack, and internally.
If you’re looking for a tale of suspense that is not your ordinary fare and one that will leave you thinking about it long after you’ve put it down, I suggest you treat yourself to VANISHED
Tomorrow, I’ll post an interview I did with Kathy. Don’t miss it!
