Brook Cottage Books is thrilled to reveal the cover for another fabulous book by Chris Longmuir - Missing Believed Dead. Desperate to find out a little more about the book before my review on 2nd July? Read on........

About the book:

Missing children! Internet predators! Dead bodies! 

She crossed his arms over his chest, and placed the jade beads in his eyes. ‘To remind you of me,’ she said. 

Jade was 13 when she disappeared, five years ago, and DS Bill Murphy suspects someone from her family is responsible for recent Dundee murders. But is it her mother, Diane, who now suffers from OCD? Or Emma, her twin sister, who was catatonic for a year after Jade’s disappearance. Or Jade’s brother, Ryan, who enjoys dressing in women’s clothes and is going through a sexuality crisis, unsure whether or not he is gay. 

What happened to Jade? Is she alive or dead? Or has she returned to wreak a terrible revenge on all male predators?

The book will be officially launched on the 11th July and you are invited to meet Chris Longmuir herself! The book will be available to purchase on 1st July!
