Book Review:The Missing Activist by Louise Burfitt-Dons
Title: The Missing Activist
Author: Louise Burfitt-Dons
Stars: 3 stars
The main plot for the story was excellent and fit well into today's age. However, the lack of in depth background for main characters left me confused at times. The story is told by different characters as their part in the tale takes place. I enjoyed the overall story but felt there was an overload, of some viewpoints, at different times which did not contribute to the overall storyline. I was satisfied with the ending but felt the justice system part of the story was greatly dismissed by the author.
Post-Referendum Britain and a country on high alert for terrorist attacks.
When a young political activist goes missing in London, an off the wall Private Investigator Karen Andersen is called to investigate.
In doing so, she uncovers secrets of a party system which prizes loyalty above truth, a serial killer and a female Jihadi plotting deadly revenge on the British government.
