“I enjoyed Muir’s first “Janie Juke” story, “The Tapestry Bag”, but “Lost Property” really shows off her skill, not only as a mystery / crime writer, but also as an author. In this book, she introduces more characters to those already established; always a risky business, however necessary Muir chooses wisely and there is subtlety in her execution.”

A story of shocking wartime secrets and romance

A Second World War drama helps 1960s sleuth, Janie, to uncover the truth…

When a stranger asks for your help how do you know what is really at stake?

Janie Juke has developed a reputation for finding missing people. When Hugh Furness asks Janie to track down an old friend, she discovers there is much more at stake than a missing person.

This new case takes Janie back in time to the Second World War, where she learns about secret missions and brave deeds. It is the past that holds the key, but she needs to be at her most intuitive to work out what lies behind the rumours and conjecture. Following in the footsteps of Agatha Christie’s Hercule Poirot, Janie enlists the help of local journalist, Libby Frobisher. Racing around the seaside towns of Tamarisk Bay and Tidehaven, Janie and Libby track down clues and piece together the facts.

A new decade is looming. In these last months of the 1960s, time is against them. Hugh Furness is seriously ill and Janie is just months away from the birth of her first child. Can Janie and Libby find out who is telling the truth before it is too late?
