Per­sons Un­known is a brand new lit­er­ary thriller from the best­selling au­thor of Miss­ing and Pre­sumed, Susie Steiner, and sees the re­turn of lead char­ac­ter Manon Brad­shaw.

As dusk falls a young man stag­gers through a park, far from home, bleed­ing from a stab wound. He dies where he falls; cra­dled by a stranger, a woman’s name on his lips in his last sec­onds of life.

DI Manon Brad­shaw can’t help tak­ing an interest — these days she only han­dles cold cases, but the man died just yards from the po­lice sta­tion where she works.

She’s hor­ri­fied to dis­cover that both vic­tim and prime sus­pect are more closely linked to her than she could have imag­ined. And as the Cam­bridgeshire po­lice force closes ranks against her, she is forced to con­tem­plate the un­think­able.

How well does she know her loved ones, and are they ca­pa­ble of mur­der?

Per­sons Un­known by Susie Steiner is pub­lished by HarperCollins, RRP $29.99.
