Entertaining Romantic Mystery

When Detective Gus Grant is called in to investigate a murder, the last person that he expects to see is his ex-girlfriend Rebecca. She was the last person to see the victim alive but is she a murderer?

Although Missing was a short listen, there was enough character development to make the story work. Gus was a very likeable character with his bumbling ways and was my favorite. The story combined mystery and suspense, with a little romance thrown in for good measure. The plot twists definitely had me guessing right up until the climax. The narration of Daniel F. Purcell was the icing on the cake, bringing the characters to life with wonderful accents and a smooth voice that I loved listening to. Overall, a very satisfying and enjoyable listen. I would recommend Missing: The Lady Said No: An Augustus Grant Mystery, Book 1.
