Politics is supposed to bring people together and control their government. When independent politician Jane disappears from a hung parliament, the government is able to approve a casino development she opposes. Presumed Dead is a page-turner about how Phillip, a politician she loves and their friends, suspect foul play and search for her. They employ forensic techniques that reveal methodical corruption in bipartisan politics. In a final denouement, government leaders are exposed and the parliament is reconstituted.
This is a page-turning political whodunit, crime fiction demonstrating the workings of a Westminster System of democracy, in a fictional parliament and proposing non-partisan politics.
