A British couple disappear in Spain's Costa Blanca and fears grow for their safety. As a fluent Spanish speaker, Detective Inspector Miguel-ngel Fernandez seems the ideal choice to help track them down. But Miguel-ngel hates his father's homeland. He has never been to Spain.

Reviews - What do customers think about Missing?

Starts well-finishes not so well  Jun 2, 2008
We returned just yesterday from a two week trip to the area described in the book. We took it with us and read a chapter or two every night. We were dealing with real estate issues while we were there, so the property management topics were a lot of fun. Our property is in Lliber, so the descriptions of that town had us in hysterics. We were pleased to find the restuarant L'Era in Parcent used in the book as a party site is very real and very, very good. Although the characters in the book that are male are quite well "fleshed out", he is not as favorable to women. Both my husband and I commented on that. The plot set up is great, but the resolution of the crime and the too cliche ending for a fairly complex main character was not satisfying.
What a debut  Jan 21, 2007
I picked up this book whilst on holiday in Spain. It sparked my interest, as the plot centered around the area I was visiting.

Harrison pulls you around the Jalon Valley, back and forth to Alicante and describes in wonderful detail the purpose of life in general, from the viewpoint of an outsider 'coming in' and from the Spanish villagers trying to embrace the tourists euro.

He somehow manages to jump inside an old villagers head, attempting to preserve the quality and purpose of the family unit and REAL quality of life. And there's a cracking plot too! You just won't guess 'whodunnit' at least I didn't anyway!

My favourite bit of the book is a mouth watering description of a cool beer, a tomato, some goats cheese and bread and olive oil in the Jalon valley at 9.30 in the morning. The finest French chef with a 101 sauces simply couldn't compete.

I'm wandering.... A great book.... a must buy.
