Respectable appearances can hide the blackest of secrets. The Vanishing Act is a spicy tale of intrigue set in 1960s New Zealand, where society¿s constraints and the laws of the day made outcasts of lesbians and prostitutes. This is Jen Shieff¿s second novel, a standalone sequel to The Gentlemen¿s Club (Mary Egan Publishing, 2015), which went straight to the Nielsen Indie Top 20 and Weekly Bestseller lists, before being shortlisted for a New Zealand Crime Fiction Ngaio Marsh Award for best first novel.
