Product Description

Synopsis

T.J. MacGregor has everything it takes to be a star. She combines dazzling writing skill with breathtakingly original and provocative plots, complex and interesting characters, and the kind of relentless suspense that pulls readers in from the very first page and doesn't let go until the thoroughly satisfying end. Vanished is MacGregor's triumph, a riveting new novel that promises to propel her right to the top of bestseller lists everywhere. Hundreds of birds lined his maple trees. In his eighteen years as a country veterinarian, Max Thorn had never seen anything like them. They were watching, waiting until Max's wife, Ellen, left on her morning run. At the edge of their property, she turned to wave and began to fade before his eyes. One minute she was there, the next she had vanished, leaving no trace but a circle of dead foliage and birds. Presumed guilty of Ellen's murder, Max finds himself on the run, desperate to prove his innocence. But as he soon discovers, his wife's chilling disappearance is not an isolated incident. Across the nation, other strange vanishings have been reported, other mentions of the mysterious birds and scorched earth, and it's clear that nothing will ever be the same again. Now, it will take a man, a woman, and a child to discover the chilling truth, before all hope vanishes.

1.0 out of 5 stars Toss this book into the Fourth Dimension 9 Dec 2002
By Joseph Haschka HALL OF FAME TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Mass Market Paperback
VANISHED begins in upstate New York as Max Thorn watches Ellen, his Significant Other, literally fade away to invisibility. Fearing that her disappearance will be interpreted as foul play, with himself the murderer, Max goes on the lam to escape the Law and find out what really happened to his gal pal. I mean, what was with that huge flock of birds (right out of a Hitchcock film) that appeared shortly before Ellen's dramatic exit? From this point, the storyline takes Thorn to Florida, and the reader into a hopeless mish-mash involving a rogue Navy unit, attacking owls, huge schools of magically appearing dolphins, ley lines of energy crisscrossing the Earth, a Chasm of Nothingness, reference to the USS Eldridge and the "Philadelphia Experiment", parallel existences, a mysterious Blue Light, displaced animal species, somehow-significant flute music, and ... oh, never mind.
It's been several months since I've read a book with a plot so nebulous and disconnected as this one. It doesn't help that the ending is utterly incoherent, while doing nothing to answer any of the questions that arise from events occurring up to that point. One is just left with a confused "Huh?"
As I began the last fifty or so pages of VANISHED, I thought that I might at least be able to recommend the book as something mindless to read on a long airplane flight instead of the Safety Instructions in the seat-back jammed up against your knees. Trust me, the Safety Instructions card is the better choice. VANISHED goes into the circular file.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Fast Paced Thriller That Will Scare You Out of Your Wits! 12 Feb 2001
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Author MacGregor's new suspense novel is fresh, unusual, and very scary. A woman vanishes without a trace before the eyes of her live in lover, and soon he is accused of having murdered her. The frightened man, Max Thorn, manages to give the police the slip and along with his dog, Bacall, he sets out on a journey to find some answers--but what he comes up with are more questions. This book is guaranteed to keep you on the edge of your seat from first page to last. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars An exciting thriller with a touch of the X -Files 24 Jan 2001
By Harriet Klausner - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
In Upstate New York, veterinarian Max Thorn and Ellen Bradshaw still deeply love each other after living together for seven years without the benefit of marriage. As hundreds of birds for no apparent reason land on their property, Ellen begins her daily jog. Max stunningly watches her vanish into thin air.
Knowing her influential father and the law think he killed Ellen and needing to find his beloved, Max decides to search for her. The Internet describes similar historical events involving birds and vanishing. The weird news includes a story of hundreds of dolphins escorting two teenage girls near Piper Bay, Florida. With nothing else to go by, Max vanishes in a more mundane way than Ellen did, heading to the Florida island in hope of finding clues. On the island are two dolphin research facilities. The Navy runs a weapons research program that abuses its specimens. A civilian runs the other whose daughter has a strange Doolittle affinity with animals. How all this ties together with the mysterious vanishing of Ellen requires reading part two of VANISHED.
This is an exciting science fiction thriller that is frightening in its simplicity. Using "heretic" theory on the collective mindset of species and what is inherently learned by each new generation, T.J. MacGregor paints a dark picture of animal weapons research. Though an unnecessary gimmick propels the tale forward, readers will feel the rising tension and need to know what happened to Ellen and how her disappearance ties to Alpha, an abused dolphin. Readers will bestow kudos to T. J. MacGregor.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the Best Books Ever 12 Jun 2004
A Kid's Review - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I am a very smart person. I am in the 7th grade and read on the high school level. My mother is a fan to all mysteries and
T.J MacGregor. She read the book one day and she was telling me about how i would love it. So she covered the sex parts and gave me the book. After a couple of days I finally finished the book. I loved how she put in the loving feeling for animals. I also loved how she put a mystery of science in the book. There is really no word great enough for this book. Its just remarkable!

3.0 out of 5 stars Great potential, but fails to follow through 23 Feb 2001
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This was a book that hooked me from page one. It was definitely a page-turner. I was confused by some of the details, though, and disappointed by the ending. It's a literary episode of "The X-Files," which leaves the reader with more questions than they started with. Still a fairly good suspense read despite the flaws.
