Missing Dad 2



In Missing Dad 2: Twisted, Joe and girlfriend Becks are precipitated back into the criminal underworld where his secret agent father disappeared. And where Monsieur, the one man who could lead Joe to his father, has vanished.

On a half term trip to the South of France, Joe and Becks have a terrifying encounter with their old enemy, drugs baron Bertolini – and with a teenager who looks startlingly familiar. They learn from Monsieur that this is his son, Arnaud, lost to him and in the clutches of Bertolini and a deadly cocaine habit. Determined to try and get Monsieur’s son back to him, Joe and Becks have to go into hiding in a safe house in Bristol provided by Monsieur. But the dark tentacles of Bertolini’s empire reach out to Joe again when he receives an offer: Monsieur’s son will be sent back to him if Joe returns to his old job as the drug gang’s driver.

Joe has made his decision when suddenly Arnaud bursts back into their lives – desperately ill as he weans himself off the cocaine, and on the run from Bertolini. They put Arnaud on a plane for the South of France but are seen by Bertolini’s mob, kidnapped and taken to the drug baron’s mountain hideaway in Corsica. As Joe and Becks call on all their wits and courage to deal with the gun-toting Bertolini and his crew, the action ramps up from a moonlit battle on horseback on the French Camargue, to a breathtaking fight to the finish in the Corsican mountains – and confirmation that Joe’s father is still alive...

Missing Dad 2: Twisted is a heart-stopping thriller that will appeal to new and old fans of the Missing Dad series alike. It is suitable for young adults aged 12+.

The banner is up with the November 28 launch date, outside the Gloucester school whose youngsters provided the inspiration for MISSING DAD. The St Peter's Jazz Band are practising Bond themes. Missing Dad hoodies are going down well with the launch team. And the race car simulators are all set to keep the action fast and furious on that Saturday afternoon. Hope you can join us! (For sat nav, the school's postcode is GL4 0DD.)

I never thought I'd write a teen spy thriller. I sort of fell into writing ads and websites for the motor industry. What's not to like about driving an all-new Jaguar round a test track at terrifying speeds? But I knew this wasn't REAL writing.

Then I quit the advertising world and went to work as a teaching assistant in St Peter's High School, Gloucester. As I got to know the teenagers I worked with, I was blown away by their courage in very difficult situations. There were some who were in foster care, some who were caring for their own single parent and others who had lost a sibling. Yet even though these young people had been dealt such a bad hand, they got on with their lives, and their mates really looked out for them.

It was these twin themes of courage when something is deeply wrong with your life, and looking out for your mates, that inspired the MISSING DAD series. These amazing teenagers should be celebrated - and now we can!

BREAKING NEWS: The MISSING DAD launch party will be on Saturday 28 November, 3.00pm to 5.00pm, at St Peter's RC High School, Stroud Road, Tuffley, Gloucester GL4 0DD. At the school where MISSING DAD all began, there will be the amazing St Peter's Jazz Band and two race car simulators to keep the action fast and furious. Refreshments - soft drinks and cupcakes. Plus the paperback will still be on special offer right up to and including the 28 November - so order yours now from the Troubador website!
