Zoe Whittaker is living a charmed life. She is the beautiful young wife to handsome, charming Wall Street tycoon Henry Whittaker. She is a member of Manhattan’s social elite. She is on the board of one of the city’s most prestigious philanthropic organizations. She has a perfect Tribeca penthouse in the city and a gorgeous lake house in the country. The finest wine, the most up-to-date fashion, and the most luxurious vacations are all at her fingertips.

What no one knows is that five years ago, Zoe’s life was in danger. Back then Zoe wasn’t Zoe at all. Now her secrets are coming back to haunt her.

As the past and present collide, Zoe must decide who she can trust before she - whoever she is - vanishes completely.

With “dark, twisty, edge-of-your-seat suspense” (Karen Robards), The Vanishing Year combines the classic sophistication of Ruth Rendell and A. S. A. Harrison with the thoroughly modern flair of Jessica Knoll. Told from the point of view of a heroine who is as relatable as she is enigmatic, The Vanishing Year is an unforgettable new novel by a rising star of the genre.

Quotes & Awards

  • The Vanishing Year is intimate, conversational company, and its plot is strong, its closing twists superb.”

    New York Times Book Review

  • “This psychological thriller evolves into sheer terror as the novel progresses. Moretti has a knack for putting her characters into untenable situations and leaving them there. How they extricate themselves is skillfully handled. Surprises along the way make for stimulating reading as the field of suspects narrows. The outcome will amaze readers.”

    RT Book Reviews (4 stars)

  • “Great pacing and true surprises make this an exciting read…[for] fans of twisted thrillers featuring complex female characters.”

    Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

  • “Narrator Madeleine Maby’s smoky voice is perfect for the unfolding of this complex psychological thriller…Maby’s steady reading shifts subtly as secrets are revealed and Zoe’s perfect life starts to unravel. The story is set in New York City, and Maby uses appropriate ethnic accents rather than regional ones to capture the characters.”
