Missing Pieces by Peter Grainger

Missing Pieces (2021) is set in the same fictional world as Grainger’s DC Smith — but Smith doesn’t actually appear in this novel. He’s mentioned. Often.

I enjoyed this book. It’s a slow burn. Not much action. Plenty of detail on how murder investigations are conducted.

As the first anniversary of the formation of the Kings Lake murder squad approaches, there is a problem—they’ve run out of murders.

As a result, they are given the task of reviewing unsolved cold cases. One of these comes back to life in unexpected ways as the team try to discover the identity of the young woman whose body was found in the Norfolk countryside two decades ago.

And even if they can give her a name, how can they possibly find her killer after so many years?
