FICTION SUSPENSE & THRILLERS

What would you do if everyone around you simply vanished?

VANISH is a phenomenal blend of Christian fiction and horror. The
contrasts of lightness and dark along with good and evil are shown
throughout the tale. Each and every element of the story has a specific

explain further for fear of ruining the overall story but suffice to
say that the imagery is extraordinarily well done. The twists and turns
the story takes are fascinating and well thought out. In fact, VANISH
is one of those books that is even more stunning once you reach the
conclusion and see how all the pieces and images fit together.
VANISH is frightening in its intensity. The tension builds to a
startling crescendo as one can’t turn the pages rapidly enough.

plight of each and every character. The diversity of the
characters enhances the suspense as one wonders just what the common
denominator is between them. Bravo, Tom Pawlik, for crafting such a
