I have to say that this story pulled me right in—into a world of bill collectors, accountants, gangs, bribery, scandal, detective work and mystery—and had me reading page after page of action packed scenes. What kept me turning the pages for more was the leading question, “What the heck happened to Emma Neele?” And I have to say—I just had to find out. Yes, once you dive into this book, there is no pulling back…curiosity will propel you right through to the last page.
Matt Spears, your average debt collector, gets strong-armed into finding Emma Neele, the niece of a gangster, Vinny Barbour. Spear’s, along with his kick-ass accountant Nathan Draper, are led on a not so straight forward adventure into finding the missing Emma. They encounter some interesting characters along the way as they try to piece together where exactly she is and how to find her.
Crowther puts together an interesting story, with many twists and turns, totally engaging the reader as to the whereabouts of Emma Neele. His characters are lively, funny and completely believable; after all you do encounter the run of the gamut in everyday life. Crowther’s writing style is very straight forward, action packed, and clever. I could totally envision the scenes while reading this book and yet all the way through to the end—I could only guess where it might take me next. Predictability is not something to expect—especially when it comes to the ending.
Crowther has written an exceptional mystery and very satisfying read. One of my favorite reads this summer and I highly recommend you get your copy of Missing today.
