From award-winning author Lisa Tuttle, The Mysteries is a mind-bending exploration of what happens when someone vanishes without a trace. Ever since his father disappeared when he was nine years old, Ian Kennedy has had a penchant for stories about missing people - and a knack for finding them. Now he's a private investigator with an impressive track record. But when a woman enters his office and asks him to find her lost daughter, Ian faces a case he fears he cannot solve. Laura Lensky's stunning twenty-one-year- old daughter, Peri, has been missing for over two years - a lifetime, under the circumstances. But when Ian learns the details of her disappearance, he discovers eerie parallels to an obscure Celtic myth - and to the haunting case that launched his career, an early success he's never fully been able to explain...'Its seductive charm pulling me in, and not letting me go ... I want to read more of her (Lisa's) books. She has a lovely style of writing' Book Girl of Mur-y-Castell. 'One of the more unique fairy-centric novels. 7.5/10' Fantasy Book Review. 'A deft and daring blend of mystery and dark fantasy ... Richly imagined and beautifully written' George R. R. Martin. a rather clever and engaging blend of folkloric fantasy and the detective novel, although not without an undercurrent of malevolence. 555/666 'I'd undoubtedly put Lisa Tuttle on my must-read authors list. Her own love of (and respect for) the myths and legends that make Scotland such an intriguing place is in abundant evidence in these stories, and that kind of enthusiasm for one's subject matter makes any author worthy of note' Over The Effing Rainbow. 'A thriller, detective story, and fantasy all in one. A winner' Dean Koontz. 'The sort of slow-burning, haunting novel that digs its claws into the reader and never lets go' Lovereading.co.uk. 'Such a great little read ... It is a tale that feels timeless and calls for a quick re-read' Upcoming4me.
