One of a series in a kind of classic crime type of read.
A young recently married couple move joyously into their first home. They did not expect
to find a body in their basement neatly cemented over. Chief Inspector Moresby and Roger
Sherringham are given the job of finding the woman, and how she got to be buried in this
Unravelling clues after six years is going to be difficult. Missing Persons does not give any clues at all to fit the description of a young woman, a couple of months pregnant. Painstakingly
going one step at a time, tracing possible leads the story of a hard young woman emerges. Sherringham is totally convinced who the murderer is, but how to get the conviction to stick.
The murderer is slick, clever and very confident. the way it finally ends is a surprise. A bit
unexpected but a nice one at that.
Very descriptive, good characterization in this story.
