??Surprise-filled . . . one of the most ambitious police procedurals of the year. Detective Bradshaw??s biting wit is a bonus.???The Wall Street Journal

??This combination of police procedural and an unfolding family drama that continuously twists and turns will work well for fans of Kate Atkinson and Tana French.???Booklist
At thirty-nine, Manon Bradshaw is a devoted and respected member of the Cambridgeshire police force, and though she loves her job, what she longs for is a personal life. Single and distant from her family, she wants a husband and children of her own. One night, after yet another disastrous Internet date, she turns on her police radio to help herself fall asleep??and receives an alert that sends her to a puzzling crime scene.
Edith Hind??a beautiful graduate student at Cambridge University and daughter of the surgeon to the Royal Family??has been missing for nearly twenty-four hours. Her home offers few clues: a smattering of blood in the kitchen, her keys and phone left behind, the front door ajar but showing no signs of forced entry. Manon instantly knows that this case will be big??and that every second is crucial to finding Edith alive.
The investigation starts with Edith??s loved ones: her attentive boyfriend, her reserved best friend, her patrician parents. As the search widens and press coverage reaches a frenzied pitch, secrets begin to emerge about Edith??s tangled love life and her erratic behavior leading up to her disappearance. With no clear leads, Manon summons every last bit of her skill and intuition to close the case, and what she discovers will have shocking consequences not just for Edith??s family but for Manon herself.
Suspenseful and keenly observed, Missing, Presumed is a brilliantly twisting novel of how we seek connection, grant forgiveness, and reveal the truth about who we are.

I really loved this.

The characters - Manon and Davy and Miriam in particular - and the mystery was good. It was slow and plodding - the grind of chasing every lead and going over things so many times, the impatience of upper management, the aggravation of the press. But it didn’t feel too slow, it just seemed pretty realistic.

I also liked that the author didn’t give Manon an easy out. She has so many bad dates, and then meets Alan. She likes him! And then she falls really hard and it’s over. Instead, she commits to a 10yo orphan Fly and reconnects with her sister. So a HEA of sorts, but not romantic! ( )

It took me a while to get into this book, but I’m glad I persevered. It started off a lot slower than I expected, and I didn’t warm up to the characters for quite a while. In the end, though, I quite liked Davy and I came around to Manon’s quirks and eccentricities too.

As I got into the book, I compared it quite a bit to watching one of my favourite police procedural TV shows. It was like getting into Bones or Rizzoli & Isles (the show, not the books), and I found myself eager to get back to the lives of these interesting law enforcement officers. I cared about them way more than I cared about Edith, Miriam, Ian and the rest of their lot.

I was disappointed in the last 30 pages or so, though. Once the “big reveal” occurred, the rest was just much too pat, including the explanation of what happened to Edith. It all felt like puzzle pieces falling into place, but there was no suspense or harrowing revelation here. After investing so much energy into these people, the ending was a disappointment. Still, I really enjoyed this novel overall and I’m glad I stuck with it. ( )

Susie Steiner has written a wholly fascinating novel which captures your interest from the first page and grips it tightly until the last. Cambridgeshire Police are investigating the sudden, unexplained disappearance on university student, Edith, but as no trace of her is found and no ransom demand received, the frustration grows. But the story is so much more than an investigation into her disappearance, as it opens out to highlight the pressures this causes for family and friends and also on the police leading it, both in their professional and private lives, as progress appears to be painfully slow. Taken together, this makes for an absorbing read with a surprising resolution.

Thanks to Random House via NetGalley for the free ARC copy of [b: Missing Presumed: DS Manon #1|26141649|Missing, Presumed (DS Manon, #1)|Susie Steiner|https://images.gr-assets.com/books/1448761125s/26141649.jpg|46094369] by [a: Susie Steiner|5412415|Susie Steiner|https://images.gr-assets.com/authors/1442615125p2/5412415.jpg].

This is a well-written novel and the character development is excellent. I do not know why this book did not wow me, it had many perfect ingredients.

I did enjoy the truth of the single-angst-nearing-the-end-of-childbearing-years subplot regarding DS Manon. It brought to mind the desperation felt by the single women in "Sex and the City."

I like crime novels and expected something different than what the story is. I gave this a five-star rating because it is only my own expectations of a strong female protagonist that left me disappointed.

I have recommended this to other readers. ( )
