One Of Our Ministers Is Missing (Paperback)Alan Johnson (author)
When a government minister vanishes on the mountains of Crete, dark secrets and dangerous scandals begin to come to light in this gripping thriller from the former MP and author of The Late Train to Gipsy Hill.
A government minister in the Foreign Office has vanished into thin air.
On holiday in Crete, Lord Bellingham had been solo trekking in the White Mountains when he mysteriously disappeared. After a vast search and rescue operation, the local police have no leads, save for a mobile phone discarded on a cliff edge.
Assistant Commissioner Louise Mangan of the Met Police is sent to assist in the investigation but soon discovers that there are more layers to this case than the local police realise.
Lady Bellingham is less than forthcoming, the family nanny is hiding something, and a scandal is brewing back in London that could destroy the minister's reputation for good.
Under pressure from the powers that be, can Louise find the missing minister, or will she discover something much more sinister at play?

'Fascinating and ingenious.' - Melvyn Bragg
'A fast-moving plot, complex but all too credible, expertly told. The fact it comes from the pen of a former Home Secretary makes the rich security detail and the myriad relationships all the more powerful.' - Alastair Campbell
'Is there no limit to his talents? Not content with being a top politician, and a very nice feller, he turns his hand to writing four memoirs, which win prizes and awards and sell bucketloads. God I was spitting with envy. Why didn't he just stick to politics? I absolutely loved Alan's new thriller, it's brilliant.' - Hunter Davies
