Another winner from Peg Brantley!

The Missings by Peg Brantley is a pretty fast paced, entertaining listen, and unfortunately it's all too plausible in the real world. The fact that this revolves largely around someone or some group (no spoilers!) harvesting and killing mainly illegal immigrants in order to harvest their organs is pretty scary. Now that I think about it, it makes perfect sense, if you're a psychopathic killer looking to leave as little a trail as possible.

Detective Chase Waters is a good main character with morals and a good personality. Peg makes a point to build up his backstory and I hope I get to read more of his adventures in the future. Also, I was so happy that Mex Anderson is in this book! In case you haven't listened, I super-highly recommend Trafficked: A Mex Anderson Novel by Ms. Brantley. The Missings is good, but I devoured Trafficked.

Eric Nutting did a good job with the narration of this book. His performance was well paced, easy to understand, and he did a good job with all of the various characters. He also read with a good amount of emotion where called for. I'd listen to more of his performances again in the future. I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher for an honest review.

Life or Death Who gets to Choose???

What made the experience of listening to The Missings the most enjoyable?

I listen while I drive.

What did you like best about this story?

The real fear of a community even among legal citizens is overwhelming in immigrant communities and crimes are not reported way to often.

What about Eric Nutting’s performance did you like?

Solid Narrator

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

It could be but doesn't have to be to enjoy.

Any additional comments?

Peg Brantley's The Missings Narrated by Eric Nutting is a Mystery/Detective Procedural that takes place in the small Hispanic community of Aspen Falls, Colorado.

When some of the community go missing they are reluctant to go to the authorities out of fear and the legal status of many in the community. 

When Elizebeth Benavides sister goes missing she challenges the communities silence and demands the authorities do something. 

Senior Detective Chase Waters looks into the case and when the other missing people are brought to his attention he works all his contacts to solve, what truely is a mystery.

When Detective Waters investigation takes him to the doors of a private hospital for the Rich he looks for a connection. The one he finds brings the case much to close to home for him.

The Missings is a must read. It speaks to the Fear of the Police by law abiding and even legal citizens and the unreported crimes they face. This is a mystery where life and death lay in the balance.
