This eerie thriller…can stand next to Shirley Jackson’s The Haunting of Hill House and Stephen King’s The Shining.” —Booklist (starred review)

New York Times bestselling author Megan Miranda returns with a gripping and propulsive thriller that opens with the disappearance of a journalist who is investigating a string of vanishings in the resort town of Cutter’s Pass—will its dark secrets finally be revealed?

Ten years ago, Abigail Lovett fell into a job she loves, managing The Passage Inn, a cozy, upscale resort nestled in the North Carolina mountain town of Cutter’s Pass. Cutter’s Pass is best known for its outdoor offerings—rafting and hiking, with access to the Appalachian trail by way of a gorgeous waterfall—and its mysterious history. As the book begins, the string of unsolved disappearances that has haunted the town is once again thrust into the spotlight when journalist Landon West, who was staying at the inn to investigate the story of the vanishing trail, then disappears himself.

Abby has sometimes felt like an outsider within the community, but she’s come to view Cutter’s Pass as her home. When Landon’s brother Trey shows up looking for answers, Abby can’t help but feel the town closing ranks. And she’s still on the outside. When she finds incriminating evidence that may bring them closer to the truth, Abby soon discovers how little she knows about her coworkers, neighbors, and even those closest to her.

Megan Miranda brings her best writing to The Last to Vanish, a riveting thriller filled with taut suspense and shocking twists that will keep you guessing until the very end.


Abby helps manage The Passage Inn located in a small town of Cutter’s Pass. Cutter’s Pass is known for its beautiful hikes and great landscapes and a string of unsolved disappearances. But when Landon West’s brother shows up to find out exactly what happened, things start to unravel and the community closes ranks. No outsider is safe.

I adored Abby. She is just an all around good girl trying to live a quiet life. However, when she starts to really question what is going on around her, her quiet life turns into a frightful situation. She is not as safe as she thought!

You can always count on this author to take you on a wild ride! And this story is full of wild rides! I mean…how many people have to go missing?? Now, I had part of this figured out, but not all of it. I love how an author can throw a kink into a reader’s deductions. And Megan Miranda is always good for several twisted surprises. And the suspense…when you don’t know who to trust, it throws several tension filled moments your way!

Need a fabulous tale full of twists and turns….THIS IS IT! Grab your copy today!

I received this novel from the publisher for a honest review.
