Missing, previously published as Private Sydney in Australia, has two storylines. Craig Gisto is head of Private Sydney. He personally takes on a missing person case. Eric Moss, CEO Australian Research Company, is missing. Gisto interviews Moss’s office personal and takes a special interest in Moss’ daughter, Eliza. She’s also a friend of Jack Morgan (Private LA). The case is dangerous and leads fall through but Gisto doesn’t give up. The question is will he still feel the same about Eliza after he discovers the truth? The Missing CEO takes the largest part of the book. The second case is a murdered woman, a kidnapped baby and a missing couple. Now with this case, even I thought Private Sydney bumble it. Watch them work hard to set it right, find the baby, and bring the culprits to justice.

Australian Actor Daniel Lepaine (The Durrells in Corfu) lends his voice to the audio version. His narration is spot on for a first time read. The subplots move back and forth without any confusion. There are plenty twists and the action is just right. Australian doctor and mystery writer Kathryn Fox is Patterson’s co-author this time. And Kathryn amps up that down-under feel compared to Private Down Under, which was extremely violent compared to Missing Still I enjoyed both audiobooks and hope to enjoy more.
