The new novel from the Sunday Times Bestseller

‘I can't imagine reading a better crime novel this year’ RENEE KNIGHT
‘No one writes crime fiction like Susie Steiner’ ERIN KELLY
‘Perfect. I loved it’ FIONA BARTON
‘So spot-on … So moving’ MARIAN KEYES
‘Completely gripping’ JANE CASEY

The body of a young migrant is found hanging from a tree. No signs of struggle. No indication that it is anything other than a tragic suicide. Except for a note, pinned to his trousers, that reads ‘The dead cannot speak’. A murder investigation begins with DI Manon Bradshaw at the helm. But with the other migrants unwilling to speak, and protests on the streets, hatred is starting to drown out the facts. Can Manon uncover the truth before it happens again?

Susie Steiner

Susie grew up in north London, studied English at university and trained as a journalist. She worked in newspapers for 20 years, 11 of them on staff at The Guardian. Her first novel, Homecoming, was published by Faber & Faber to critical acclaim in 2013. Her second, Missing, Presumed was a Sunday Times bestseller which introduced detective Manon Bradshaw. It was a Richard & Judy book club pick and has sold 200,000 copies to date in the UK. Missing, Presumed was selected as one of the Guardian’s, Wall Street Journal’s and NPR's standout books of 2016. It was shortlisted for the Theakston's Crime Novel of the Year 2017. Persons Unknown, the sequel to Missing, Presumed, is her third novel – also a Richard & Judy bookclub pick and also longlisted for the Theakstons. Susie has written extensively about losing her eyesight to Retinitis Pigmentosa. She lives in London with her husband and two children and is currently working on a third Manon Bradshaw mystery.
