One of our ministers is missing

£8.99

‘Richard Osman, here’s a bullet with your name on it’ Times

A government minister has vanished into thin air.

The local police in the isolated island of Crete have no leads, save for a mobile phone discarded on a cliff edge.

Assistant Commissioner Louise Mangan of the Met Police is sent to assist in the investigation but soon discovers that there is more to this case than the local police realise. Lady Bellingham is less than forthcoming, and the family nanny has a secret she will do anything to keep hidden.

With a scandal brewing back in London, can Louise find the missing minister before his reputation is destroyed for good, or will she discover something much more sinister at play?

More praise for Alan Johnson’s novels:

‘A punchy thriller’ Irish Independent

‘More layers than a filo pastry’ The Sun

‘A fast-paced who-done-what’ SAGA Magazine

‘Featuring espionage, the Russian Mafia and a gorgeous female on a train with a deadly secret, the tantalising plot has set Alan up for dominance of the bestseller charts for years to come’ Fiona Phillips

‘Is there no limit to his talents? . . . I absolutely loved Alan’s new thriller, it’s brilliant.’ Hunter Davies

‘Johnson’s writing style is easy, relaxed, self-deprecating . . . impressive’ Observer

‘Johnson writes wonderfully’ Telegraph

‘This boy can write . . .’ The Spectator
