MISSING moves. Patterson’s trademark short chapters are on display, and in abundance, as he and Fox demonstrate their storytelling ability at warp speed. American readers may experience a bump or two when encountering Australian geography and/or slang, but for the most part the book gives off a southern California vibe...

Synopsis

Even for Private Investigations, the world's top detective agency, it's tough to find a man who doesn't exist . . .

Craig Gisto has promised Eliza Moss that his elite team at Private Sydney will investigate the disappearance of her father. After all, as CEO of a high-profile research company, Eric Moss shouldn't be difficult to find.

Except it's not just the man who's gone missing. Despite the most advanced technology at their disposal, they find every trace of him has vanished too.

And they aren't the only ones on the hunt. Powerful figures want Moss to stay "lost," while others just as ruthlessly want him found.

Meanwhile, a routine background check becomes a frantic race to find a stolen baby and catch a brutal killer - a killer Private may well have sent straight to the victim's door . . .

Above average
Reviewed by LUCY SCHOLES on Nov 23 2016

It’s a definite A for effort, but when it comes to execution, her grade is much lower. Ultimately Small Great Things fails to capture the complexities of the political and social landscape it claims to portray.
