The Art of Vanishing (Lila Maclean Academic Mystery #2) by Cynthia Kuhn











When Professor Lila Maclean is sent to interview celebrated author and notorious cad Damon Von Tussel, he disappears before her very eyes. The English department is thrown into chaos by the news, as Damon is supposed to headline Stonedale University’s upcoming Arts Week.

The chancellor makes it clear that he expects Lila to locate the writer and set events back on track immediately. But someone appears to have a different plan: strange warnings are received, valuable items go missing, and a series of dangerous incidents threaten the lives of Stonedale’s guests. After her beloved mother, who happens to be Damon’s ex, rushes onto campus and into harm’s way, Lila has even more reason to bring the culprit to light before anything—or anyone—else vanishes.

My Review

Strange things begin to happen when Lila Maclean’s Mom old boyfriend is invited to discuss his famous book and best seller, but people start to get injured and you have to wonder what is going on. It becomes very personal to Lila when the Chancellor makes it a requirement that she get Damon Von Tussel to appear at the program or else. She even enlists her mother’s help, but will he even listen to her, or even care?
People seem to go to strange extremes to stop this program from going on but why, and you sure are going to find out, but you are also going to be wondering just what is going on and who is the culprit.
I received this book through Great Escapes Book Tours, and was not required to give a positive review.
