The Missing

Andrew O'Hagan
NZD $24.99

A brilliant merging of reportage, social history and memoir

How can people disappear of the face of the earth? Every year in Britain some 2000 people go missing.

In this book, O'Hagan looks at real cases known to him and concludes with an account of the missing persons killed by the Wests. Writing with what one reviewer praised as 'passion, eloquence and honesty', O'Hagan brings the disappeared and their circumstances to life with sympathy and honesty.
