Elizabeth is Missing
Emma HealeyMeet Maud. Maud is forgetful. She makes a cup of tea and doesn't remember to drink it. She goes to the shops and forgets why she went. Sometimes her home is unrecognizable - or her daughter Helen seems a total stranger. But there's one thing Maud is sure of: her friend Elizabeth is missing. The note in her pocket tells her so. And no matter who tells her to stop going on about it, to leave it alone, to shut up, Maud will get to the bottom of it. Because somewhere in Maud's damaged mind lies the answer to an unsolved seventy-year-old mystery. One everyone has forgotten about. Everyone, except Maud...
One of the cleverest mysteries either of us has read. Maud, who is falling into the grip of dementia, nevertheless knows and remembers something with absolute conviction: Elizabeth is missing. Utterly absorbing.
