About the Book:
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.
“The Lila Maclean Academic Mystery series should be required reading for anyone who loves a great mystery! Tightly plotted with a deliciously memorable cast of characters, The Art of Vanishing kept me guessing from start to finish, and Kuhn’s smart sense of humor made every page a pleasure.” — Marla Cooper, author of the Kelsey McKenna Destination Wedding Mysteries
“Entertaining, intricate, and oh-so-smart! A terrific plot—with a surprise around every corner.” — Hank Phillippi Ryan, Agatha, Anthony and Mary Higgins Clark award-winning author of Say No More
“Whether Stonedale University English professor Lila is confronting a backstabbing colleague or investigating a murder attempt on a cantankerous bestselling author, readers will root for this enormously likeable heroine.” — Ellen Byron, Agatha nominee and USA Today Bestselling author of the Cajun Country Mysteries
“The Art of Vanishing is cozy perfection! Author Cynthia Kuhn takes readers to the sometimes-treacherous academic world and proves once again that protagonist Lila Maclean is not just educated, she’s smart.” — Jennifer Kincheloe, award-winning author of the Anna Blanc mystery series
“I love Lila! She’s smart and relatable, with engaging friends, fun family, and some decidedly un-collegial colleagues. This academic mystery kept me on the edge of my seat.” — Ann Myers, author of the Santa Fe Café Mysteries
“Incomparable manuscripts and competitive colleagues unfold into a surprising mystery about love, loss, and betrayal. Author Cynthia Kuhn schools us in the art of duplicity, and the grade is A+.” — Diane Vallere, National Bestselling Author of the Costume Shop Mystery Series
