Missing: The Body of Evidence Kindle Edition
Missing: The Body of Evidence is a gripping X-FILES type, dark crime thriller. A story of government secret experiments and deceptions, and one woman’s determination to discover the truth.
When rookie LAPD Detective Nancy Roberts is called to the scene of a fire and the remnants of a body are discovered, CSI can’t be sure if it is the result of a suicide, accident, murder, or.... Well... kind of something else. One thing is for sure, don’t expect the norm.
The CIA declares an interest and points everyone on the investigation in the direction of a freak accident. Nancy doesn’t buy the theory of spontaneous combustion put forward. Her own unconventional investigations point her in a different direction and into a world of psychics and government mind-control experiments, but they are curtailed when she is framed for being on the take.
Suspended and under orders not to continue with the search for answers, threats to her life and those she holds dear force her in a race against time to clear her name. But will she avoid death long enough to prove her innocence and to uncover the truth behind the strange events?
Emotionally charged and gripping from the very beginning to an extraordinary and unforeseen, though satisfying twist at the end. It doesn’t get much better than this. An uncompromising and compulsive thriller from Declan Conner.

I'm mindful when reviewing this genre to be careful not to spoil it for fellow readers by giving away the plot elements. But suffice to say that the plot takes place within an authentic world of Los Angeles and its environs and involves: a mysterious death, the CIA, an unexplained wild fire, a detective with claustrophobia and a conspiracy theory.
Tightly plotted and structured, the relationship sub-plot in the middle chunk of the book, allows for deeper characterisation and shows Nancy and Kyle off-duty. There are hooks at the end of each chapter, taking the reader smoothly from one to the next and the pace carries us through at a clip. There are twists and turns galore and soon the hunter becomes the hunted.
Declan Conner knows this genre inside and out and he also knows who his readers are and what they expect. And Missing: The Body of Evidence delivers! The writing is highly visual, something that a modern audience demands now, the dialogue is realistic and it would make a great TV movie.
The story centres around Nancy Roberts a tough rookie LAPD detective on the trail of a killer in this anything but run of the mill thriller. Nancy is woman competing in a man's world and not only faces the case that can make or break her career but her ever present `ticking clock' that's driving her to make a choice between her future on the force and her settling down.
There's a paranormal edge to this which adds some originality to a well trodden genre and plenty of twists and turns sets this well apart from other books in this field. Great stuff. Will read more.
Fifty-fifty for me.
