‘Involving, sophisticated, intelligent and suspenseful’ Lee Child

‘A gripping, twisty police procedural’ Shari Lapena

‘Sets off at a cracking pace from page one and never slows down’ Rachel Abbott

‘Compelling, page-turning suspense … Mari is a writer at the very top of her game’ Steve Cavanagh


A plane on route from London to New York City has disappeared out of the sky. This breaking news dominates every TV channel, every social media platform, and every waking hour of the Metropolitan Police and US Homeland Security.


The love of DCI Kate Daniels’ life was on that aircraft, but she has no authority to investigate. This major disaster is outside of her jurisdiction and she’s ordered to walk away.


But Kate can’t let it lie. She has to find out what happened to that plane – even if it means going off book. No one is safe.

And there are some very dangerous people watching her…


A gripping, twisty police procedural - fans of the Kate Daniels series will love this one.
Shari Lapena
With a cast of compelling characters and a chilling plot, Without a Trace sets off at a cracking pace from page one and never slows down.
Rachel Abbott
A personal tragedy puts Kate Daniels at the heart of an international incident, testing her skills as a detective. Without A Trace is a deft blend of emotional drama and crime procedural that kept me hooked to the very end. Mari Hannah has a talent for writing about the light and dark of life, and creates characters who feel so realistic they almost pop from the page.
Adam Hamdy
Mari Hannah has a rare gift. She can write compelling, page-turning suspense with the very best, but she adds heart to every page. Kate Daniels is a character to cherish, and Mari is a writer at the very top of her game.
Steve Cavanagh
Involving, sophiticated, intelligent and suspenseful - everything a great crime thriller should be.
Lee Child
I loved it - both compelling and incredibly moving.
Elly Griffiths
Mari Hannah is in the uppermost echelon of British crime writers and Without a Trace demonstrates why. It's her best book yet - compelling, emotional and intricately plotted with a procedural authenticity few can match. A stunning novel.
