Missing, Assumed Dead | [Marva Dasef]

Missing, Assumed Dead

When Kameron McBride receives notice she's the last living relative of a missing man she's never even heard of, the last thing she wants to do is head Oregon to settle his affairs. En route, she and her rental car run afoul of a couple of hillbillies and their pickup in an accident that doesn't seem...accidental. Especially when they keep showing up wherever she goes. Lucky for her, gorgeous Deputy Mitch Caldwell lends her a hand, among other things. With Mitch's help, she peels away the layers of prejudice, suicide, murder, and insanity.

Publisher's Summary

Prejudice, murder, insanity, suicide: Every small town has its secrets.

When Kameron McBride receives notice she's the last living relative of a missing man she's never even heard of, the last thing she wants to do is head to some half-baked Oregon town to settle his affairs. But since she's the only one available, she grudgingly agrees.

En route, she and her rental car run afoul of a couple of hillbillies and their pickup in an accident that doesn't seem...accidental. Especially when they keep showing up wherever she goes. Lucky for her, gorgeous Deputy Mitch Caldwell lends her a hand, among other things. Her suspicions increase when she meets the probate judge, and he tries just a little too hard to buy the dead man's worthless property.

Kam probes deeper into the town's secrets and finds almost no one she can trust. With Mitch's help, she peels away the layers of prejudice, suicide, murder, and insanity. Kam must find out what really happened to her dead relative before someone in this backward little town sends her to join him.

And she thought Oregon was going to be boring.

    Story
    "Not a nice place for a city girl."
    If you could sum up Missing, Assumed Dead in three words, what would they be?

    Clever plot twists


    What other book might you compare Missing, Assumed Dead to and why?

    I don't often read murder mysteries, so it's difficult to find a comparison. I was originally drawn to the book because of the eastern Oregon setting, an area I am both familiar with and fond of. The setting contributes a lot to the story, the characterizations are good and the twists and turns of the plot kept me guessing to the end. Very well done.


    Which character – as performed by Lisa Baarns – was your favorite?

    I first read this as a print book, so when I came to the audio book, I had some preconceived notions about how the characters should sound. Lisa Baarns' interpretation of Kam McBride almost exactly matched the voice I heard in my head while first reading the book. The other characters were also quite believable, with each character voice distinctive enough that I always knew who was speaking. A thoroughly enjoyable performance.

    Story
    "Author Commends Narrator"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Missing, Assumed Dead to be better than the print version?

    Depends on whether the reader uses audio books. It's definitely better for those who have poor vision.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The Oregon high desert setting isn't often used in mysteries.


    What does Lisa Baarns bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Wonderful mix of tones to differentiate the characters. It wasn't a flat recitation, but like listening to a radio play.


    Any additional comments?

    Although I wrote the book, my thoughts are entirely based on the quality of the narration. That's all Lisa Baarns.
