Great pace, fine writing, solid characters, and fine construction. Brantley has the goods.
I proofread a preview copy of "The Missings" for Ms. Brantley with no intention of writing a review. I got so tied up in the story that I had to back up occasionally to force myself back into editing mode. Ms. Brantley's handling of the Latinos in this story is outstanding. I have discovered in my travels in Mexico that the poorer Mexicans would answer any questions with "sí" because if they gave a wrong answer they got jumped on my the more affluent in their society. This behavior has carried over into the US by the illegals who have formed the barrios in our country. Ms. Brantly captures this in her descriptions of the people on "the other side of the tracks" avoiding anything to do with law enforcement or even people outside their society. Her handling of bigotry against "those people" even by Mexican Americans is very well presented and adds to the plot.
Ms. Brantley also captures the deep depression of those who lose a loved one before their time, which is woven into the plot.
Besides the above, the story moves along swiftly. One does not want to wait to find out what happens in the next step. I am not well informed on law enforcement but it seemed to me to be very realistic. She actually points out that "hey, we are not on CIS here". Five stars all the way and as good as her "Red Tide" is, this one is even better, much better!
Detective Chase Waters has a number of dead bodies in the morgue with no name and surgical incisions on their bodies. How can he solve their murders if he doesn't know who they are?
Under the radar, a Mexican community of both legal and illegal people keep a secret. Some of their own are missing. They whisper quietly among themselves about "the missings" but no one contacts the police. They fear the police as they once feared the police in their native Mexico.
Sr. Detective Chase Waters and his team must find who murdered the "missings". No one knows (or will tell) their names. The murdered are expertly eviscerated in one place and their bodies dumped elsewhere. How can Chase find the killer or killers? Who would benefit from these murders? It seems to be a serial killer, but other things don't quite fit.
A young woman contacts Chase because her sister is missing. Unfortunately, her sister turns out to be one of the missings. The young woman wants revenge for her sister's murder. So she helps Chase navigate the silent, frightened world of the illegal. She helps open the doors that lead to a harrowing tale.
Peg Brantley has expertly woven this story into a very good read. It's rich in detail and brings to light some of the problems of being an Illegal. No one knows who you are. Does anyone care? Gently, but persistently Chase and his team, including the young woman, collect the details one by one: those that are not spoken of out of fear and those inferred by the little bits and pieces he learns.
There are many paths in this book. All of them are interesting. All of them lead to the murderer. Peg keeps the resolution of the mystery tight. You won't know how the murderer is caught until the end of the tale.

Decent book, but a bit repetitive especially in the opening chapters. It's a quick read because the chapters are quite short. Actually, they are unnecessarily short. Read morePublished 6 months ago by lovetoread
