While locked in the clear inspection box, she witness Jimmy being led away by away by a stranger/5. The Vanishing Point is a stand-alone and does it ever Th[e] opening is shocking, edge-of-your-seat unnerving and violent on different levels.

The vanishing point book reader is immediately drawn in by Harker’s overwhelming panic and fear. It’s taut, smart, vivid writing.”—Victoria Brownworth, Lambda Literary (online)/5(). David Markson's book, Vanishing Point, is the third book in a tetralogy of experimental novels concerning an aging author.

The other works in the tetralogy are: Reader's Block, the ironically titled This Is Not a Novel, and The Last Novel. Like Markson's other works, Vanishing Point is avante-garde and highly by: 2. Where The Vanishing Point differs is the level of suspense and her greater use of flashbacks. From the moment ghostwriter Stephanie Harker steps off her international flight at O'Hare Airport with five-year-old Jimmy, whom she is in the process of adopting, until the unexpected resolution in the last paragraph, the reader is caught in an ever-tightening coil of suspense/5().

A powerful, grippingly-plotted thriller that will keep readers on the edge of their seats until the end, The Vanishing Point showcases McDermid at the height of her talent.

The parallel lines never actually meet but they come very close at Very good book. It is about a Carlyle Sinclair, a teacher on a prairie Indian reserve.

He is very attached to one of his former students, Victoria, but has difficulty in understanding the indian way of life/5. To the Vanishing Point purports to be a relatively straightforward, ordinary-middle-class-family-vacation-gone-to-hell horror a la Stephen King with a little fantasy mixed in, something to do with a hitchhiking A reader's experience can benefit greatly from a book that makes modest promises and exceeds them/5.
