Missing Person

*****From the author of The Three, coming soon to your screen as a major BBC adaptation by Golden Globe winner Peter Straughan*****

The unmissable new thriller from Sarah Lotz, author of The Three and The White Road.

They are a group of misfits who go online for fun. Their hobby is giving names to the missing dead. But a killer is online with them, and his game is in deadly earnest . . .

Shaun Ryan’s brother, Teddy, died in 1989. Only he didn’t. Looking through his grievously ill mother’s personal effects, Shaun finds a postcard that Teddy posted from New York, dated October 22nd 1990. And in his mother’s family Bible is a picture of an adult Teddy. Could Teddy somehow be alive? And how do you find someone who has never been declared missing and who vanished nearly thirty years ago?

Missing-linc.com are an oddball assortment of geeks and obsessives whose macabre hobby is matching unidentified bodies with missing people. Ellie Caines’ first and biggest case was The Boy in the Dress, a corpse found not ten miles from where she lived in Minnesota, two years after Teddy’s postcard. Her obsession nearly broke her marriage and she left the group – but when the Ryan’s enquiry is passed onto her she knows they have likely matched the missing Teddy with that decades-old corpse. And that she will be sucked back into the old nightmare, where the dead are more real than the living.

I really enjoyed it. It's taut, tense, modern and clever. A terrifying set up that's horribly believable and literally unputdownable.

Sarah Lotz's utterly absorbing and (...) everything I look for in a novel: vivid, arresting prose, a thrilling story, and unforgettable characters

Ali Knight, author of Before I Find You
You know, I can feel sorry sometimes when a books ends . Missing Person by Sarah Lotz was one of those books. It marries a story about internet groups that search for missing persons and dead bodies to an Agatha Christie novel and it worked. I just love the characters. I like books about people with strong bonds and friendship. It had that for me. I enjoyed that book very much.
