Advance praise for the book:
“This eerie thriller, in which the setting itself may be actively malevolent, can stand next to Shirley Jackson’s The Haunting of Hill House and Stephen King’s The Shining...expect shivers and lots of them.”
--Booklist, *Starred Review*
“[A] superb thriller… Evocative descriptions of such activities as hiking and rafting contain an underlying sense of dread, and realistic characters match the tight plotting. Miranda is writing at the top of her game.”
--Publishers Weekly, *Starred Review*
About the book:
Scribner / Marysue Rucci Books is thrilled to announce the publication, on July 26, 2022, of New York Times bestselling author Megan Miranda’s new novel, THE LAST TO VANISH. Megan Miranda is “a master of misdirection and sudden plot twists” (Booklist, STARRED REVIEW), the author of “clever, stylish mysteries that will seize readers like a riptide” (Publishers Weekly, STARRED review) featuring “dizzying plot twists and multiple surprise endings” (The New York Times Book Review). This new novel, set in the Appalachian foothills near hundreds of miles of vast wilderness, is no exception.
Cutter’s Pass, North Carolina: a beautiful, remote town abutting a mountain ridge. Its natural beauty and proximity to the Appalachian trail mean that it is popular with nature lovers, day hikers, and those up for bigger adventures. Its bustling downtown belies the stark and deep wilderness that surrounds it. The crown jewel in this little town is the beautiful Passages Inn, lovingly – and firmly – presided over by Celeste, the town’s unofficial matriarch.
Abigail Lovett, a newcomer in Cutter’s Pass, works at the Inn. She is tolerated by the locals because she has Celeste’s blessing and because she follows the unspoken rule: to not ask too many questions about the string of disappearances associated with the town, going back decades. But when a journalist turns up to investigate and then disappears himself, Abby starts
asking questions. She quickly discovers that she doesn’t know the first thing about Cutters Pass and the people who live there. She must decide whom to trust, and quickly. Her safety – and her life – may be at stake.
