Missing by A D Hay - Blog Tour

Monday, May 4, 2020

Welcome to my stop on the blog tour for Missing by A D Hay! If you haven't been to my blog before please do click on the main page and have a look around! I read a lot of YA but also a lot of crime and thriller fiction too.

This blog tour is about the book Missing, which is a novella in a series about the same journalist, James Lalonde, who is French but working in England. In this book he is the editor of a newspaper in Northampton. He's a total workaholic so his girlfriend, Valentine, leaves him. He assumes she's gone back to Paris. He goes to cover one of her interviews, where she was due to interview Elizabeth, an archaeologist at a museum of Anthropology. However, when he gets there, Elizabeth has been arrested as her assistant Pippa was found murdered in Elizabeth's apartment that morning. Elizabeth can't remember what happened, but Pippa is dead and there was a very valuable sword taken from Elizabeth's flat.

James starts to try to unravel what happened, while trying to avoid the people who took the sword...

This is a short novella and I felt like it suffered in parts because of that - there wasn't enough exposition for me. I liked the mystery and the tinge of archaeology, and liked James enough to care what happened to him.

This is the official blurb:

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 lastest 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 attempts to unravel 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.

Missing is the first book in a reporter thriller series. Get it now.
