Missing, Presumed by Susie Steiner Book Summary

A New York Times Book Review Editors’ Choice • A page-turning mystery that brings to life a complex and strong-willed detective assigned to a high-risk missing persons case


“An extraordinarily assured police procedural in the tradition of Ruth Rendell and Elizabeth George.”—Joseph Finder, author of The Fixer

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

“Missing, Presumed has future BBC miniseries written all over it.”—Redbook

“A highly charismatic and engaging story.”—Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

“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.

Praise for Missing, Presumed

“Smart, stylish . . . Manon is portrayed with an irresistible blend of sympathy and snark. By the time she hits bottom, professionally and privately, we’re entirely caught up in her story.”—The New York Times Book Review

“Nuanced suspense that’s perfect for Kate Atkinson fans.”—People

“Drenched in character and setting, with pinpoint detail that breathes life and color into every sentence.”—The News & Observer

“You might come to Missing, Presumed for the police procedural; you’ll stay for the layered, authentic characters that Steiner brings to life.”—Bethanne Patrick, NPR

“Where [Susie] Steiner excels is in the depth and clarity with which she depicts her characters. . . . It all adds up to a world that feels much bigger than the novel in which it is contained.”—The Guardian

Not worth your time. Don't feed into the hype surrounding this book. I read reviews claiming that there were a lot of plot twists, interesting in-depth characters, etc, and instead was bored to death. The first few chapters are the most suspenseful chapters of the entire book. After that, it goes downhill and thuds to a disappointing halt. Drags on and on and on with mind-numbing detail (paragraph upon paragraph at times of pointless detail) only to reveal the plot twist in the last 80 pages in a rushed, muddied, boring manner. Ugh! So disappointed. Spend your money on a different book.

A wonderful book that happens to be a mystery.. This terrific page-turner proves that a mystery can be full of insightful writing, original convincing characters and a lot of heart. Such a departure from the cliches that crowd the genre. Fabulous.

Missing, Presumed. Outstanding book! I enjoyed this book very much, and thought the characters were real and fascinating! Edith is a cruel, spoiled, selfish, entitled brat who is repulsive and unrepentant despite the chaos, and deaths she caused. Her character is unbelievable as caring about prisoners and their plight and lack of rehabilitation. She is so concerned she studies for a PhD in English! Manon is the heroine of the book, even with her dysfunctional family-- spineless father and traumatic childhood -- who rescues Fly.

Captivating read. The author sure knows how to hold the reader interest. Great plotting and character development, interesting use of several narrators and lots of surprises. Hope to see Manon, Fly et al. In future.

Missing, Presumed. I enjoyed Manon's character very much, but the story was too long and the ending anticlimactic.

Will Keep You Guessing. If you love guessing up until the very end, then this is the book for you. Clues and misdirections abound, mixed perfectly to lead you down countless potential trails of exploration. Manon is a unique character and the first book in this series shows us how intricately woven her personal and professional lives. Both sides of her life have such an impact on each other and I really enjoyed being fully immersed into her life (and it's an interesting one). My one and only dislike about Manon is she is a bit too depressed most of the book. She's a little too lost at times, and one period of being lost is followed up by another one - while she may be on the ball professionally, her personal life is a mess - but I needed a little bright side to it before the end of the book. But, we're really reading this for the crime. Edith is missing, foul play is almost certain, and the police are rapidly running out of time. This part of the story was beyond perfect. I really enjoyed seeing the glimpses into Edith's parents' lives and the lives of her friends that are involved in the investigation. Things don't go smoothly, and things go horribly wrong at one point. In fact, I think it's safe to say it all starts to fall apart. But there is a solution to the case. It isn't what I expected (which is good), but looking back through the bits and pieces of clues I can see it (which is good). It's a little out there, but completely believable. If Manon could just find a little light in her life, then I think this book would be just about perfect.

Excellent yesteryear.. I bet this is the best mystery I read this year. Things in satisfactorily, but not everything is wrapped up. Change happens at the pace of life even if some events are extraordinary. The writing is a cut or two above and pleasing. The characters are well drawn and complicated in a way that rings true for real people, notContrived tortured souls

Read This!. This novel captured me from the onset. Each chapter is about one of the characters and the reader is quickly drawn in. There are enough twists in the plot to keep you interested and the characters actually seem more real than in most novels. They have lives and sometimes lose sight of what is happening to their case(s) when life intervenes. It reads quickly and will hold your interest. Thanks to Net Galley and Random House for an ARC for an honest review.

SO BORING!. I've gotten halfway through and can't keep reading. This book is so boring and unfocused. Absolutely no suspense and I don't care for any of the characters. Glad I only wasted $1.99 - definitely don't understand the hype.

Missing Presumed. Good book- great characters- appreciate the depth and range of feelings, emotional range the writer developed in them.

Page turner. Great read and keeps you guessing as to the outcome!
