Book Description

The sequel to Susie Steiner’s bestselling MISSING, PRESUMED

Manon has settled back into life in Cambridgeshire with her adopted son Fly. She’s perfectly happy working on cold cases until a man is stabbed to death just yards from the police station, and both the victim and the prime suspect turn out to be much closer to home than she would like. How well does Manon know her loved ones, and are they capable of murder?

About the Author

 Susie grew up in north London, studied English at university and trained as a journalist. She worked in newspapers for 20 years, 11 of them on staff at The Guardian. Her first novel, Homecoming, was published by Faber & Faber to critical acclaim in 2013. Her second, Missing, Presumed was a Sunday Times bestseller which introduced detective Manon Bradshaw. It was a Richard & Judy book club pick and has sold 200,000 copies to date in the UK. Missing, Presumed was selected as one of the Guardian’s, Wall Street Journal’s and NPR's standout books of 2016. It was longlisted for the Theakston's Crime Novel of the Year. Persons Unknown, the sequel to Missing, Presumed, is her third novel. She has written extensively about losing her eyesight to Retinitis Pigmentosa (click the 'journalism' tab for these articles). She lives in London with her husband and two children and is currently working on a third Manon Bradshaw mystery.

My Review

 Persons Unknown is the second DS Manon Bradshaw tale by Susie Steiner. I completely enjoyed Missing, Presumed and Persons Unknown did not disappoint. It is a fantastic police procedural set in the UK.

I have loved getting to know DS Manon Bradshaw in the two books in this series. Manon's character goes through so much in Persons Unknown and the reader is with her every step of the way. The supporting characters also are more fleshed out in Persons Unknown.

Susie Steiner is a great storyteller. There are so many twists in Persons Unknown that I could not bear to put it down.

Highly recommend Persons Unknown. I cannot wait until the next book!!!
