GONE BY REBECCA MUDDIMAN
250,000 people go missing in the UK every year. 91% of those reported to police are found within 48 hours. 99% of cases are solved within a year. And 1% stay gone.
Eleven years ago, troubled teenager Emma Thorley went missing. The police assumed she was a runaway. But now a body has been found in woods near Blyth.
DI Michael Gardner knows he didn’t take Emma’s disappearance seriously enough back then, and is determined to make up for it now. But when he and DS Nicola Freeman start to reinvestigate, they discover that nothing is as simple as it seems.
As news of the discovery travels, the past will come back to haunt all those involved. Because there are consequences when good people do bad things, and some secrets cannot stay buried for ever…
I can’t believe that a staggering 250,000 people go missing in the UK every year. Thank goodness that 91% of those reported to the police are found within 48 hours. 99% of cases are solved within a year. My heart goes out to the family and friends of the 1% stay gone.
I loved reading Gone by Rebecca Muddiman she certainly weaves some clever twist that no one would see coming.
