MISSING PRESUMED SUSIE STEINER
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 post-graduate 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?
Will Carter reported to the police that he came home and found the front door ajar and the coats in disarray and blood and that his girlfriend Edith Hind was missing. Is Edith alive or dead? Detective Sergeant Manon Bradshaw knows that the first 72 hours are critical. Grips you from page one. I am already looking forward to the next novel by Susie Steiner.
