Now You See Them

Now You See Them

A gripping Brighton-based mystery from the bestselling author of the Dr Ruth Galloway series – a must-read for fans of Agatha Christie, cosy crime and TV series such as Grantchester and Midsomer Murders.

‘Griffiths writes with a smart, sharp eye’ Peter James

‘Recalls the best of Agatha Christie’ Sunday Express

Three young women have gone missing.


A girl called Rhonda has vanished from her boarding school. Maybe she ran away, but there are disturbing similarities to the disappearance of two other young women – those too thought not to be suspicious.

But where are they?

Detective Edgar Stephens is under pressure to solve Rhonda’s disappearance, but it is his wife Emma, herself a former detective now frustrated at being just a housewife, who concludes there might be a connection between the three cases.

Then the danger comes nearer home.

Edgar’s friend, magician Max Mephisto, is reinventing himself as a movie star and trying not to envy his daughter Ruby’s television fame. Little do either of them know how close they are to being drawn into the deadly web of abduction and murder about to trap them all.

‘A piquant mixture of humour, period detail . . . and truly beguiling characterisation’ Financial Times

Reviews

Wry, emotionally intelligent and quietly satisfying
Sunday Times
Full of fun and expertly plotted, this is in many ways a cosy read but there is real depth to the way the characters cope not only with changing times but changes in themselves as they mature
Sunday Express
Elly Griffiths, who is better known for her series about the forensic archaeologist Dr Ruth Galloway, relishes depicting a benighted age in which WPCs aren't allowed to drive or even carry radios... The tension - and frustration - builds to an exciting climax
The Times
Brighton remains as alluringly seedy as ever
Irish Independent
In trademark style, Griffiths' plotting is intriguing, multi-layered and full of rich detail, each character is honed to perfection, the social backdrop is immaculately researched, and the frustrations of young women constrained by outdated notions of a man's world are perfectly portrayed
Lancaster Guardian
Elly Griffiths' series set in post-war Brighton are entertaining diversions full of period detail, smart plotting and likeable characters
