Missing Dad 7: Wings


After drug smugglers and illegal arms dealers, this final book in the Missing Dad series sees the young protagonists tackling the odious trade of human trafficking. In Book 7: WINGS, the victims are unknowing passengers aboard the Golden Venus cruise liner – heading for slavery instead of sunshine.

The youngsters are paying the price of their previous successes against international crime, with Tommaso having to go into permanent hiding in India, where he continues to hack into criminal networks. And they are also making career decisions, with Becks heading for Cambridge to study law. At Monsieur’s suggestion, Joe takes flying lessons and discovers a passion for being in the air. Arnaud and Talia return home to plan their wedding and their new career – running a children’s home in the new Chateau de Montaubon that is rising from the ruins of the old one, helped by Monsieur and Joe’s father and mother.

Towards the denouement, Joe makes a discovery about his father’s past that transforms his previously ambiguous feelings. But only after being incarcerated utterly without hope – the price of waging war on international crime.

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.)

Jane Ryan

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!
