In the first book of the series, private investigator Tyrone Swift is asked to find Carmen Langbourne, who has gone missing. The police investigation has stalled with no evidence of any crime being committed. With no real clues to her disappearance, Swift makes enquiries, chipping away, uncovering family secrets.
It’s a slow investigation that meanders due to the lack of any firm leads. There’s a lot of description about day to day events like meals, which don’t move the story along. While it’s not badly written, I’m afraid the story never gripped me.
How did she vanish without a trace?
Carmen Langborne is a woman who no one seems to like very much, and now she’s gone missing. But there is no body, no leads and no real suspects. And the police have given up.
Carmen’s stepdaughter Florence hires private detective Tyrone Swift to find the missing woman. If the body is found, Florence will inherit half of a very valuable house.
As Swift delves deeper into the family’s affairs, he discovers dark family secrets that threaten the reputations of powerful people. Will Swift get to the truth before those with much to hide stop him?
