Missing, Presumed: A Novel
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.
