Missing, Presumed/Susie Steiner/350 pgs.
Edith Hind is a Cambridge graduate student, and has gone missing. Her live-in boyfriend, Will Carter, comes home to an unlocked door, a broken glass, and some blood. He notifies Sir Ian Hind, Edith's father, and also surgeon to the Royal Family, who notifies the police. Detective Sergeant Manon Bradshaw finds herself on the case, along with her boss, DI Harrriet Harper, and DC Davy Walker. The novel is told in chapters reflecting various characters' viewpoints. There are twists and turns, and in addition, the reader gets an insight into the personal aspects of the characters' lives. It has a satisfying conclusion, and I highly recommend it!
