Now that they are about to be married, Willy cant believe that something he dreamed about for so long will actually come true. But when Janine takes a trip to visit friends at her old school, she never arrives at her destination. Soon, another woman is missing as well. When the police are unable to shed any light on the disappearances, Willy begins an obsessive quest that will span a decade and takes the reader from a small town in New York to the riot of Mardi Gras in New Orleans, from the barren desert of the Southwest to the cell of a murderer in California.Brian Tobins first novel, The Ransom (A Book-of-the-Month Club Selection), was acclaimed as a rereadable, memorable mystery--a knockout, a spellbinder! Booklist said that Tobin is off to an excellent start. Remember his name.With The Missing Person, you will remember both the authors name and his riveting novel.Praise for Brian Tobin:THE RANSOM“The Ransom is a first novel that races through the boroughs of New York like an A train.” – The Chicago Tribune“Tobin’s outstanding first novel is a rereadable, memorable mystery–a knockout, a spellbinder.” – The Drood Review of Mystery“{A} tidy, zippy novel.” – Kirkus ReviewTHE MISSING PERSON“In an unusual mystery without a conventional hero or villain, Tobin movingly depicts the lives of ordinary people who suddenly find themselves in extraordinary circumstances... Tobin makes the most of plot, character and the warmly evoked Hudson Valley setting in this satisfying, atypical mystery.” – Publishers Weekly“Tobin’s grasp of the characters is so sure that the suspense doesn’t let up...” – Kirkus Review“There is a mystery here..but the novel is really about love, separation, longing, and the pain of never knowing the fate of a loved one. Tobin, whose debut novel, The Ransom, was stunning in its portrayal of career outlaws, is equally at home with good people coping with awful circumstances... A complex, thoughtful novel.” – Booklist“It delivers the suspense most mysteries only promise.” – Wilson Library Bulletin“With expert narration that moves easily back and forth in time, Mr. Tobin lures us into the grip of a well-built, fast-paced story with both a tantalizing mystery and a love story at its core. The tight and complicated plot never seems forced because it grows out of the motivations and actions of strong, believable characters... He keeps us in suspense until the last page, where the final surprise, and perhaps the most unexpected, is how deeply he has tapped our emotions.” – The New York Times Book Review
