Post-Referendum Britain and a country on high alert for terrorist attacks.
When a young political activist disappears in London, an off-the-wall PI Karen Andersen is put on the case. She uncovers secrets of a party system which prizes loyalty above truth, a serial killer and a female Jihadi plotting deadly revenge on the British Government. 

A behind-the-scenes gripping political thriller and bullying story of poignancy and compassion. The author has had experience of both having been a national candidate during the 2015 General Election as well as the founder of an anti-bullying charity during the scandal which rocked the Tories after the tragic death of a young activist later that year. Louise Burfitt-Dons is a former journalist, playwright, and screenwriter of thrillers. This is her first crime novel. All characters and places are imaginary.

The Missing ActivistWhat happened to THE MISSING ACTIVIST? Enter a world of political machinations, religious fervor and feminists as one rather quirky and creative Private Investigator attempts to prove herself as she gnaws at a case that is like a many tentacle beast.

Louise Burfitt-Dons as created a twisted tale that entangles a fervent Jihadi woman with young PI, Karen Anderson. And still, the question remains, what happened to Robin Miller, a grassroots political activist who should never have been a target, or should he?

Pure British suspense on steroids, this tale is detailed, sometimes a tad slow, but each page brings readers deeper into the lives of the humans involved. How far will each character go? How powerful the webs that are woven. Where do they intersect? Who will believe in lies and who will know the truth?

I liked this just fine, but I wasn’t wowed. Perhaps because I am from across the pond and this is clearly written with a strong British pen?
