Missing, Presumed

Author:

Susie Steiner

Synopsis:

In mid-December, 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 seventy-two 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?

She's horrified to discover that both the victim and prime suspect are more closely linked to her than she could have imagined. And as the Cambridgeshire police close ranks against her, she is forced to contemplate the unthinkable. How well does she know her loved ones, and are they capable of murder?
