Missing, Presumed: A Novel

We rated this book:


Missing, Presumed follows Detective Sergeant Manon Bradshaw in her quest to find the man of her dreams. During this journey, she comes across the case of Edith Hind, the daughter of a well-to-do family in London who has gone missing. Since it’s a high profile case, everyone is brought on board. It turns out that Edith has secrets and so does a person very close to her. Things end up quite a bit differently than Manon expects, both in the case and in her life.

One thing I did enjoy about this book was that each chapter tells the story from a different character’s point of view, but without telling the same piece of the puzzle. The story just continues through someone else’s eyes. I didn’t find Manon very likable or unlikable, she was just kind of there. The story turns out to be not much of a thriller. There are some plot twists, but it felt like more of a drama than a mystery. Overall, wasn’t the worst book I’ve ever read, but I probably won’t read it again.
