‘Remarkable…a rip-roaring adventure novel with a true depth of feeling’ Sunday Times’A joy to read’ HeraldThe First World War ended the day Sam Simoneaux’s regiment reached France, but he saw more than enough of its ravages. Returning to New Orleans, he determines to put mayhem and destruction behind him, and to make a fresh start with his wife. But when a little girl is abducted on his watch at a department store, he has no choice but to help find her. Steeped in the langorous rhythms and music of Prohibition-era Louisiana, The Missing vividly evokes a ragged frontier nation where violence is normal and the law easy to dodge. Relentlessly suspenseful and profoundly affecting, this is an enthralling tale of vengeance, conscience and redemption by an exceptional writer.
