Product description

Product Description

Carl Strassberger's comfortable life in the south of France is shattered when his brother-in-law Larry Lucas, the heir to the family banking business, suddenly vanishes after landing a multimillion-dollar deal.

Investigating Larry's disappearance, Carl uncovers a sinister travel company that helps wealthy, unhappy clients disappear to a new life. But Carl fears Larry is dead-or worse.

Vanishing Point is a story of flight and pursuit, of financial intrigue, of old and menacing secrets unearthed and of normal lives thrown suddenly into violent confusion.

'Morris West has the enviable ability to thrust readers into a compelling story with very few wasted words.' Amazon review

'Morris West is a remarkably consistent exponent of a dying art-the production of literate and intelligent bestsellers.' The Sunday Times

From the Back Cover

The peace of Carl Strassberger's comfortable life as the only son of a wealthy banker pursuing his artistic career in the south of France is shattered suddenly when his brother-in-law, Larry Lucas, the heir to the family business, simply vanishes after landing a multi-million dollar deal.

Summoned to investigate Larry's disappearance, Carl goes undercover and discovers the sinister travel company Larry used for his escape, whose business it is to help wealthy, unhappy clients disappear. But Larry's mental state was so fragile at the same time of his disappearance that Carl fears he is dead…or worse.

'Vanishing Point' tells the chilling tale of an incredibly successful but manic-depressive banker who, having been driven to the dangerous edge of things, decides to vanish. It is a story of flight and pursuit, of financial intrigue, of old and menacing secrets unearthed, and of normal lives thrust suddenly into violent confusion.

"West has a talent, possessed by only the very best"

"Morris West is a remarkably consistent exponent of a dying art – the production of literate and intelligent bestsellers"
