'Missing, Presumed hits the sweet spot between literary and crime fiction. The plot is gripping, with a twist that knocked me sideways.'
- ERIN KELLY
'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
'Missing, Presumed is held in place by DS Manon Bradshaw: a messed-up, big-hearted detective in the best tradition’

A young woman vanishes. A smear of blood in the kitchen of the house she shares with her boyfriend suggests a struggle.
As soom as Detective Sergeant Manon Bradshaw sees the photograph of missing Edith Hind - a beautiful Cambridge post-grad from a well-connected family - she knows the case will be big. And she's right: pressure soon mounts from the media and from on high.
Can Manon see clearly enough to solve the mystery of Edith's disappearance? Can she withstand intimidation from Sir Ian Hind, Edith's father, who has friends in high places? And when a body is found, will it mean the end or just the beginning?
