“Another great crime story in the Dundee crime series by Chris Longmuir where the reader follows DS Bill Murphy into the world of missing girls, chat rooms and unsavoury characters. The discovery of a body leads to the reopening of a cold case and Murphy becomes more involved than he ever imagined. Told from different points of view throughout, the reader gets to know the individual characters; what they are thinking and how their internal thoughts wrestle and often conflict with their external actions. A gritty but well-handled subject matter, a clever plot and a great crime novel.” Book Reviews
“Missing Believed Dead is a gritty, murder mystery full of twists and turns that will leave you sitting on the edge of your seat throughout. Admittedly, I've never read anything like this before but I became totally engrossed within the story from the very beginning. Having not read any of Chris Longmuir's books before, I must say it was still easy to jump in at this point in the series. There were no burning questions as to who was who, Chris plotted the story beautifully, leaving me to enjoy the dark depths of her characters' twisted minds. I really had no idea who the 'bad guy' was, as the plot kept thickening to confuse me. But I loved that about this book! I just know it's going to play on my mind for months to come - and that, in my mind, is the sign of a terrific novel.” Suzy Turner, Author
