The Vanished Child book. A millionaire is brutally murdered. Into the life of the Knight family, a wealthy New England clan living in the early years of the twentieth century, comes a mysterious stranger who is determined to unearth the truth behind the disappearance and presumed death of Richard Knight.
The Vanished Child is an onion of a mystery, with layer upon layer of dicovery, ambiguity, truth, and lies. Sarah Smith is skilled at imbuing her characters with subtle pychological nuance. She understands the nature of fear and denial and the way such emotions work upon people over both short and long term. In a manner somewhat reminiscent of Hamlet, the book's central mystery is solved by re-enacting it in a play, pricking the consciences of the participants.
