Deborah and Simon St. James have taken a holiday in the winter landscape of Lancastershire, hoping to heal the growing rift in their marriage. But in the barren countryside awaits bleak news: The vicar of Wimslough, the man they had come to see, is dead-a victim of accidental poisoning. Unsatisfied with the inquest ruling and unsettled by the close association between the investigating constable and the woman who served the deadly meal, Simon calls in his old friend Detective Inspector Thomas Lynley. Together they uncover dark, complex relationships in this rural village, relationships that bring men and women together with a passion, with grief, or with the intention to kill. Peeling away layer after layer of personal history to reveal the torment of a fugitive spirit, Missing Joseph is award-winning author Elizabeth George's greatest achievement.

"A vacation trip to bleak, wintry Lancashire turns into a busman's holiday for forensic scientist Simon St. James and his wife, Deborah. They investigate a suspicious death, drawing in Detective Inspector Linley. The competent and capable performance by Donada Peters does full justice to the story. Pacing is excellent, and character voices are well-differentiated. Varied accents--ranging from London to broad Lancashire--add diversity and interest for the listener. A professional and enjoyable production. J.D.P. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine"
