About this title


Edgar Award winner Sharyn McCrumb brings you her sixth Elizabeh MacPherson mystery novel.
The unsinkable Elizabeth is on tour of England's most famous murder sites, when Rowan Rover, the group leader, is quietly asked to commit murder. He does, of course, but not without misgivings--not the least of which is having Elizabeth MacPherson, canny observer and all-around murder spoiler, on his tail...
"Sharyn McCrunb is definitely a rising star in the New Golden Age of mystery fiction. I look forward to reading her for a long time to come."
Elizabeth Peters
From the Paperback edition.

From the Publisher:

I particularly enjoy mysteries that allow me to play the
armchair traveler, following along as the detective visits famous
sites or interesting corners of the world. Sharyn McCrumb's
MISSING SUSAN is one of the best examples of this kind of
mystery. In MISSING SUSAN, Elizabeth MacPherson, forensic
anthropologist and sleuth, decides to go on a tour of England's
most famous murder sites. She isn't aware that Rowan Rover, the
tour guide and Jack the Ripper expert, has been hired to kill a
tour member -- the obnoxious young heiress Susan Cohen.
Throughout the story, we are treated to a travelogue of England's
more gruesome tourist spots, as well as Sharyn McCrumb's dryly
humorous prose. MISSING SUSAN inspired me to take the Jack the
Ripper tour myself -- and although I didn't encounter any murders
other than those of Jack the Ripper, the atmosphere was decidedly
more intriguing due to this book.
