‘The past can cast long shadows.’
Missing Dad Book 5: Justice deals with the tragic murder seventeen years ago of Lisette, wife of the charismatic and mysterious French aristocrat Christian Rochelle, who has become more of a father to Joe than his own dad.
Joe and Becks set out to solve the mystery of who was the accomplice who let the murdering Contessa da Palestrina into the ultra-secure Château L’Etoile? It is a quest that will take the teenagers close to a terrible death on more than one occasion, as they journey to Surat, the Indian diamond-cutting capital of the world, and onwards to Naples, riddled with its casual murders and mountains of toxic waste.
But it is in the seas off the Northwest coast of Scotland where the story reaches its terrifying climax. We’re heading relentlessly for the world’s third largest whirlpool, on board a ship loaded with smuggled missiles, with a nuclear power plant that is going into meltdown.
