A tantalizing mystery in the vein of TheSecret in Their Eyes and Tell No One, The Vanished Elephant follows popularcrime novelist Edo Celeste after he receives a cryptic envelope on the eve ofthe publication of the final installment in his beloved “Felipe Aranda”detective series. The envelope, which contains a series of enigmaticphotographs, may be a long-awaited clue to the mysterious disappearance of hisfiancée seven years prior. As Celeste descends down a rabbit hole of strangeoccurrences, stumbling on a steady stream of new clues, his obsession becomesincreasingly more complex and dangerous, and the line between the fiction hecreates and the reality he lives in quickly blurs.
We follow that up with Michael Fassbender’s 2015 Macbeth.
