Sal Kilkenny #7 A moving and harrowing crime thriller.
‘Back in June, the same week that I’d just found one person, two more went missing. None of them related. The only connection was me: Sal Kilkenny; my job: private investigator. And finding people seemed to be the flavour of the month.’
Janet Florin, a wife and mother has disappeared, abandoning everything she holds dear; and Berfan, a failed asylum seeker from Iran, is reported missing by his anxious brother. Sensing sinister undercurrents in both cases, Sal has plenty to keep her occupied, but she’s not one for ‘all work and no play’; as the summer kicks into gear, the temperature is notched up on the domestic front too…
‘Shot through with grit; honest, plausible: life as she is lived in the 21st century – and a fine portrait of the author’s beloved Manchester’ Gwen Moffat, Shotsmag.co.uk
‘My favourite private detective! Sal Kilkenny is great, and MISSING is terrific – full of great, thoroughly believable characters and a twisting plot that will keep you on tenterhooks right to the last page. Great stuff!’ Gateway
‘I am naturally delighted to see that Cath Staincliffe’s wonderfully human (and humane) Manchester-based heroine Sal Kilkenny is still in business’ Mike Ripley, Shots eZine
