A missing student. A dead-end investigation. Can a police officer uncover the truth before the child is lost forever?

Policewoman Christine Lane feels guilty about the absent boy–why hadn't she sensed a problem when she visited his class? After breaking up a fight between students, Christine had sent the children on their way. The next day, one boy vanishes.

Searching Toronto Island for the ten-year-old, Christine is shocked when investigators eventually conclude the child ran away. How did he get off the island? Why hasn't he surfaced anywhere? And why did he leave the field trip in the first place?

When Christine probes further, she receives pushback from her boss, the school board and the classmates' families. Then the threats begin. Can Christine figure out what happened the night the boy disappeared, before she is shut down for good?

MISSING is the second book in the award-winning Christine Lane Mystery series and can be read as a standalone novel.

If you like female protagonists with grit, atmospheric settings and page-turning suspense, then you'll love Dianne Scott's MISSING.

Buy MISSING for an engrossing read featuring an unforgettable female sleuth. Perfect for fans of Karin Slaughter's COP TOWN, Edward Conlon's THE POLICEWOMEN'S BUREAU and Louise Penny's ARMAND GAMACHE series.
