Missing, Presumed Reviews


Praise for MISSING, PRESUMED:

'Missing, Presumed is the best [crime novel] I've read in a very long time. It has everything one could ask, and more: it's stylish, witty and compelling; has an infuriating yet likable lead detective; and is also terribly good at skewering contemporary class anxieties and manners' SARAH PERRY, Guardian

'Where Steiner excels is in the depth and clarity with which she depicts her characters. Manon is sad and lonely, estranged from her sister and something of a misanthrope. But she's also funny and clever, and interesting. I defy you not to fall for her' Thriller of the Month, Observer

'A cracking page-turner' Woman & Home

'This clever, witty novel is one of those rare books that marries excellent writing and memorable characters with an absorbing plot and a startling twist' Sunday Express

'Steiner's engrossing, gripping and wry prose, beautifully detailed storytelling and the wonderfully drawn DS Manon Bradshaw elevate this missing person novel into something quite spectacular and deeply satisfying' Best crime thrillers of 2016, Red

'[Steiner] gets inside the minds and lives of her book's socially disparate personalities with the grace of a novelist of manners, even as she pulls tight the strands of one of the most ambitious police procedurals of the year' Wall Street Journal

'Smart and stylish...Manon is portrayed with an irresistible blend of sympathy and snark' New York Times

'With luck, we'll be see more of them in the future.'

'The most satisfying read in ages...Utterly brilliant' INDIA KNIGHT

'Loving Missing, Presumed - intelligent, funny, gripping and beautifully written' CARYS BRAY

'Gripping, authentic, funny and moving, Missing, Presumed hits the sweet spot between literary and crime fiction. The plot is gripping, with a twist that knocked me sideways, swiftly followed by another one that knocked me back in the other direction' ERIN KELLY

'Beautifully written and laced with dark humour. Dive in.' LUCIE WHITEHOUSE
