Jenny Shepherd is twelve years old and missing. Her teacher, Sarah Finch, knows better than most that the chances of finding her alive are diminishing with every day she is gone. As a little girl her older brother had gone out to play one day and never returned. The strain of never knowing what has happened to Charlie had ripped Sarah’s family apart. Now in her early twenties, she is back living at home, trapped with a mother who drinks too much and keeps her brother’s bedroom as a shrine to his memory. Then, horrifically, it is Sarah who finds Jenny’s body....

Publisher's Summary

Jenny Shepherd is twelve years old and missing….

Her teacher, Sarah Finch, knows better than most that the chances of finding her alive are diminishing with every day she is gone.

As a little girl her older brother had gone out to play one day and never returned. The strain of never knowing what has happened to Charlie had ripped Sarah’s family apart. Now in her early twenties, she is back living at home, trapped with a mother who drinks too much and keeps her brother’s bedroom as a shrine to his memory.

Then, horrifically, it is Sarah who finds Jenny’s body, beaten and abandoned in the woods near her home. As she’s drawn into the police investigation and the heart of a media storm, Sarah’s presence arouses suspicion too. But it not just the police who are watching her....

    "The Missing - A great find"

    I found this book while brousing for an author I have not tried yet and wasn't disappointed. The plot had many twists but were not too complicated to follow, It was well written and I felt drawn into the feelings of the main character. Penelope Rawlins is a fantastic narrator and I love the way she can change her voice from adult to child as the book jumps back and forth in time. I enjoyed every minute.

    Story
    "Writing not very good"
    Would you try another book written by Jane Casey or narrated by Penelope Rawlins?

    No. The narrator's voice was very young and considering she is supposed to be an educated woman and teacher she was pathetic.


    What could Jane Casey have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    The story line was not believeable. Narrator was conveniently talking to all the characters without the police and solved the mystery by herself. If she had been drawn as an intelligent person it might have been believeable.


    What didn’t you like about Penelope Rawlins’s performance?

    It was okay. I think it was the story that didn't help her young voice sound convincing.


    Any additional comments?

    Why does Audible think we have to have questions to answer in order to write a review.

    Story
    "A riveting tale"

    A young girl of 12 goes missing and her 24 year old teacher understands more than most the anguish of the parents as her brother also disappeared many years before, never to be found. The heroine becomes more and more involved in the investigation until the resolution of both affairs. In the cold light of day the story might be considered a touch far-fetched but the power of the narration - it is told through the first person of the teacher draws you into her world and her thoughts. As always with Jane Casey there is a smattering of grim humour too.
    The narrator had a very convincing voice for the young teacher and the younger characters in general but her attempts at voices for the middle-aged characters and male voices could be irritating. Apart from that she reads exceptionally well.
