Vanished (Mass Market
Despite some redundancies and dimensionless supporting characters, Steel's 31st
novel is a potent blend of romance and intrigue. When Marielle Delauney marries
New York steel magnate Malcolm Patterson in 1939, she does not tell him of her
tragic past--neither the drowning accident that claimed her first child, nor the
subsequent beating by her husband Charles that caused her to miscarry, nor the
two years she spent recovering in a sanitorium. But what does the enigmatic
Malcolm already know? When they have their own child, Teddy, Malcolm, to all
appearances, is an adoring father. The still-vulnerable Marielle begins to gain
self-confidence, even though she endures daily confrontations with a hostile and
even sinister household staff. Then the day after Marielle has a chance meeting
with Charles, who drunkenly makes vague threats against Teddy, the four-year-old
is snatched from his room, the nanny and nurse chloroformed and gagged. The FBI
is summoned, Marielle's past is exposed by a frenzied media and Charles is
arrested. But where is Teddy? The author of Mixed Blessings keeps her secrets
well, and--the annoying reprises of critical scenes aside--presents a strong
portrait of a tormented young woman moving toward stability. 1,000,000 first
