Publisher's Summary

Mid-December, and Cambridgeshire is blanketed with snow. Detective Sergeant Manon Bradshaw tries to sleep after yet another soul-destroying Internet date - the low murmuring of her police radio her only solace.
Over the airwaves come reports of a missing woman - door ajar, keys and phone left behind, a spatter of blood on the kitchen floor. Manon knows the first 72 hours are critical: you find her, or you look for a body. And as soon as she sees a picture of Edith Hind, a Cambridge postgraduate from a well-connected family, she knows this case will be big.
Is Edith alive or dead? Was her 'complex love life' at the heart of her disappearance, as a senior officer tells the increasingly hungry press? And when a body is found, is it the end or only the beginning?


What the Critics Say

"Gripping, authentic, funny and moving, Missing, Presumed hits the sweet spot between literary and crime fiction. The plot is gripping, with a twist that knocked me sideways, swiftly followed by another one that knocked me back in the other direction. More than that, the characters became dear friends over the course of the book. I'm already looking forward to the next one." (Erin Kelly)
"DS Manon Bradshaw is a messed-up, big-hearted detective in the best tradition." (Harriet Lane)
"Within a chapter, DS Manon Bradshaw announces herself as a detective to follow through books and books to come. A treat in store for those who love their crime fiction rich in psychology, beautifully written and laced with dark humour. Dive in." (Lucie Whitehouse)

Great story.

Loved it. Great story. Great characters. Good narrator apart from the Scottish accent! I'm off to see if there are others in the series.

Really disappointing

The book had a really weak story, I didn't really like the writing style and kept hanging on thinking it would get better, but it didn't.
