Sophie Is Still Missing
Works of: Fiction
Jacaranda Dunne—known to everyone as JD—is an ex-Metropolitan police officer who has moved to Málaga to open a detective agency. At first, the work is routine, missing dogs, stolen passports and unfaithful husbands. Then one day a woman bursts into the agency, waving the photo of a young girl; it’s her missing daughter, Sophie.
Together with her best friend, Julie—both aged fourteen at the time—Sophie had disappeared the previous summer. An extensive police search has failed to find the teenagers but now they have found Julie’s dead body, but instead of continuing with the investigation they have closed the case. The distraught mother tells JD that she is her last hope and begs for her help.
But has too much time passed? Is the girl still alive? Why have the police shut down the investigation? And more to the point, how can JD find her when the police have failed to do so?
This intricate crime mystery, Sophie is still Missing, is the first book in the Jacaranda Dunne Mysteries by award winning Joan Fallon, and takes the reader into the shadowy world of the Costa Del Sol, people trafficking and modern slavery.
