The Missing Activist

He’s missing. So why’s no one looking?

Post-Referendum Britain and a country on high alert for terrorist attacks. When a young political activist disappears in London, an off-the-wall private investigator, Karen Andersen, is put on the case.

She uncovers secrets of a party system that prizes loyalty above truth, a serial killer, and a female Jihadi plotting deadly revenge on the British Government.


”’Vivid, clever, and utterly compelling, THE MISSING ACTIVIST is the story of an outsider’s attempt to uncover a deadly conspiracy at the heart of a UK political party.
