This electric cross-country thriller follows the game of cat and mouse between a girl on the run from a murder she witnessed—or committed?—and the boy who’s sent to kill her.
Nicolette Holland is the girl everyone likes. Up for adventure. Loyal to a fault. And she’s pretty sure she can get away with anything…until a young woman is brutally murdered in the woods near Nicolette’s house. Which is why she has to disappear.
Jack Manx has always been the stand-up guy with the killer last name. But straight A’s and athletic trophies can’t make people forget that his father was a hit man and his brother is doing time for armed assault. Just when Jack is about to graduate from his Las Vegas high school and head east for college, his brother pulls him into the family business with inescapable instructions: find this ruthless Nicolette Holland and get rid of her. Or else Jack and everyone he loves will pay the price.
As Nicolette and Jack race to outsmart each other, tensions—and attractions—run high. Told in alternating voices, this tightly plotted mystery and tense love story challenges our assumptions about right and wrong, guilt and innocence, truth and lies.

How to Disappear is a wild murder mystery that takes you on one long journey. This book was very easy to get into and grab your attention immediately. The characters are very real and fun to tag along with. And i love how the author mixes romance into this mystery, the romance makes it so much more gripping.
This book is told in two sides, Nicolette and Jackson. I love how the author blends the story together through the two protagonists. The mystery is great! While the romance is also very sweet.
The only problem i have is the length of the book. Remember how I once said that it was a long journey, well i wasn’t kidding. I felt that the plot was a bit dragged on and long. But it was still face paced enough for a thriller.
Overall, this book is pretty good. The ending was very surprising. If you are looking for an engaging thriller, this is the one for you.
