Today is my turn on the blog tour for Missing by A.D. Hay. Missing is the first book in a reporter crime thriller series. A big thank you to the author and Sarah Hardy for having me along.
Excalibur is missing, a killer is on the loose, and his career is on the line...
James has a nose for trouble. But that's nothing new.
This time, things are different...
...his life is on the line.
James is the chief editor of a small newspaper. It's hardly captivating work. He's bored. But all of that is about to change.
Late one evening, he returns home to discover his long-time girlfriend and journalist, Valentine has left. Early the next morning, James fails to reallocate her assigned story. To avoid blank space in the culture section, and loosing his job, he decides to write the story on the local museums latest acquisition, Excalibur.
But, there's one thing he didn't count on...
....Excalibur is missing, and a dead body is at the crime scene.
As his investigations commence, James unravels a tangled web of betrayal, kidnapping, and murder. But, his fact-finding hasn't gone unrecognised. The wrong people have started to notice. And there will be consequences...dire consequences.
You'll love this gripping cloak and dagger mystery because of the twists, turns, and ending you'll never guess.
Well wow, that was a lot of story in a small amount of pages! This novella definitely doesn't short change you on content. The story is fast paced and the turns it takes threw me off completely more than once!
James is a very well fleshed out character and it was so nice to see a main make character that's pretty in touch with his feelings. He's not afraid to show them and it's such a nice change from the usual battle hardened character.
I loved the idea of Excalibur and I'm just amazed it wasn't a front page story in the paper, not just a filler. But maybe that's just me.
I really enjoyed Missing and I look forward to delving further into James's world and am looking forward to more from A.D. Hay.
I gave this book 4 stars.
