You’ll love this gripping cloak and dagger mystery because of the twists, turns, and ending you’ll never guess.
Missing is the first book in a reporter crime thriller series. Get it now.
My thoughts – This is the first in a new crime series, and follows James a newspaper editor.
He finds himself having to cover a story himself after a reporter leaves, a story about the museum’s latest exhibit, Excalibur.
He thinks it is just going to be a run of the mill piece to fill column inches in his paper but when he arrives at the museum there is a dead body and Excalibur is missing.
This a novella so you can easily fit this who dunnit into your reading schedule, a good mystery with lot of interesting characters.
