Description:

This electric cross-country thriller follows the game of cat and mouse between a girl on the run from a murder she witnessed—or committed?—and the boy who’s sent to kill her.

Nicolette Holland is the girl everyone likes. Up for adventure. Loyal to a fault. And she’s pretty sure she can get away with anything…until a young woman is brutally murdered in the woods near Nicolette’s house. Which is why she has to disappear.

Jack Manx has always been the stand-up guy with the killer last name. But straight A’s and athletic trophies can’t make people forget that his father was a hit man and his brother is doing time for armed assault. Just when Jack is about to graduate from his Las Vegas high school and head east for college, his brother pulls him into the family business with inescapable instructions: find this ruthless Nicolette Holland and get rid of her. Or else Jack and everyone he loves will pay the price.

As Nicolette and Jack race to outsmart each other, tensions—and attractions—run high. Told in alternating voices, this tightly plotted mystery and tense love story challenges our assumptions about right and wrong, guilt and innocence, truth and lies.

Excerpt from HOW TO DISAPPEAR

Jack

 

I slide the gun into the trunk of Don’s shitmobile, between the rucksack and the cooler. My gut feels like someone took a Weedwacker to it.

I tell myself, Man up, the bitch cut Connie Marino—I have a thing against people who cut other people’s throats. They’ll convict her as an adult anyway; they’ll inject a fatal dose of potassium chloride into her veins if I don’t get to her first. I’m doing her a favor. She won’t know what hit her.

But I’ll know what hit her: me.

I try to think of ways out of it all the time, but I just keep getting pulled in deeper.

Two weeks ago, I was studying for the AP English Lit exam. I was taking notes on the poetry of T.S. Eiot.

This is the way the world ends

This is the way the world ends

This is the way the world ends

Not with a ban but a whimper.

* * *

No, TS. Eliot, this is how the world ends: with a bang.
