Review

Praise for Missing, Presumed:

Missing, Presumed is the best [crime novel] I’ve read in a very long time. It has everything one could ask, and more: it’s stylish, witty and compelling; has an infuriating yet likable lead detective; and is also terribly good at skewering contemporary class anxieties and manners’ SARAH PERRY, Guardian

‘Where Steiner excels is in the depth and clarity with which she depicts her characters. Manon is sad and lonely, estranged from her sister and something of a misanthrope. But she’s also funny and clever, and interesting. I defy you not to fall for her’ Thriller of the Month, Observer

‘A cracking page-turner’ Woman & Home

'This clever, witty novel is one of those rare books that marries excellent writing and memorable characters with an absorbing plot and a startling twist' Sunday Express

‘Steiner’s engrossing, gripping and wry prose, beautifully detailed storytelling and the wonderfully drawn DS Manon Bradshaw elevate this missing person novel into something quite spectacular and deeply satisfying’ Best crime thrillers of 2016, Red

‘[Steiner] gets inside the minds and lives of her book’s socially disparate personalities with the grace of a novelist of manners, even as she pulls tight the strands of one of the most ambitious police procedurals of the year’ Wall Street Journal

‘Smart and stylish…Manon is portrayed with an irresistible blend of sympathy and snark’ New York Times Must-read Thriller of the Summer

‘The most satisfying read in ages…Utterly brilliant’ INDIA KNIGHT

‘Loving Missing, Presumed – intelligent, funny, gripping and beautifully written’ CARYS BRAY

I'm the author of three novels and have just finished my fourth - yes, Manon Bradshaw will be back in 2020.

My second novel, a literary crime novel called Missing, Presumed was chosen for Richard &amp; Judy's book club and was one of 2016's bestsellers. It has, to date, sold more than 250,000 copies and won a Nielsen silver bestseller award. It was shortlisted for the Theakston's crime novel of the year, picked by the Wall Street Journal for its top ten mysteries of the year, and was selected as a Guardian book of the year by Sarah Perry, author of The Essex Serpent. Missing, Presumed introduces detective Manon Bradshaw, who returns in the sequel, Sunday Times bestseller Persons Unknown. This novel was also shortlisted for crime novel of the year by Theakstons. The third in the Manon Bradshaw series is on its way.

My first novel, Homecoming, is a family saga set on a sheep farm in north Yorkshire and is not a crime novel.

Before writing novels, I was a Guardian journalist. I was a journalist for 20 years and on the Guardian's staff for more than ten years. I grew up in London and studied English at uni. I live in London with my husband and two children.
