Missing Persons is a major novel of contemporary suspense and horror, combining the shock and tension of A Stranger Is Watching with the gritty realism of The Blue Knight - a story of terror, loss, and love that unlocks the nightmares lurking behind the façades of ordinary lives.
Could it happen to you? Severn Gamble's wife walks into the Justice Building of a major Northwestern city to pick up some typing - and never comes out. ("Margot?") No one has seen her. ("Margot!") She has disappeared. ("Margot!") And the nightmare begins.
Gamble starts to hunt for her, joined by two police officers - Johnny Boon, case hardened, cynical, and with a wife who's just walked out on him; and Tally Wickham, young, pretty, smartass, and as compatible with Boon as oil and water. Together and separately the three of them undertake a search for Margot Gamble, a search that soon becomes obsessional, as others begin disappearing, too, beginning with a child and ending no one knows where. "God, please God, let her be alive. And God...let her not be in pain...."
Never faltering, thick with vivid characterization, and building to one of the most terrifying climaxes in years, Missing Persons is a new masterpiece of suspense, a novel to hear and remember and dream about on dark nights.
"Missing Persons is a powerhouse yarn, guaranteed to steal your own life for a hair-raising, goose-pimpling weekend. The kind of book to get lost in." (Thomas Thompson, author of Blood and Money and Serpentine)
"Jack Olsen begins with an ordinary situation that quickly turns into an extraordinary nightmare. He brings to the contemporary suspense novel an elegance in writing not often found in this genre, writing that is incisive, fastpaced and dramatic." (Nelson DeMille, author of By the Rivers of Babylon and Cathedral)

EXCELLENT MYSTERY VERY WELL NARRATED!
Yes...it is a good book!
When Severn finds Margot...how the police treated that situation was really wrong!
no, but I totally would and hopefully will!
I practically did...it was a slow starter...but it hooked me...I wanted to know what was happening to all these people that were missing!
** I was given a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review **
