It took me a while to get into this novel and then I was not really satisfied with the ending. This is the story about a woman called Edith Hind who s mysteriously vanishing causes a ripple effect to many people s lives leading the reader to very unexpected places and circumstances What starts as a seemingly straightforward missing persons case soon has the authorities running around in different places and having to come into the most unlikely of people in relation to Edith Edith was a farcomplex person then any one person knew but her actions effected many This was a very thought provoking book about how are actions alone can effect the livesOf others but it is also was bittersweet showing the reader that even the most unlikely of people have the biggest hearts.I received this book for review from the lovely people over at Lovereading.co.uk I loved it I read a lot of murder mysterys and this topped them all Great Read I liked the writing style The plot was very complicated and well done The overall story just didn t appeal to me. Susie Steiner has written the basics of a good police procedural, yet at some point the coincidences, the connections, and the police themselves overpower her story Each short chapter is about another person, the parents of Edith, the Missing, Presumed of the title, Manon, one of the detectives, Davy another of the detectives,and one of Edith s girlfriends Why do we have to be involved so deeply in Manon s love affair Why do we have to know about Davy and his bitchy girlfriend To me this just wasted time All the threads some quite hard to believe are tied up rather quickly in the last 20% of the book Still, this is Steiner s debut novel and hopefully her next ones will be better.
