The Missing Activist

“Intense and teasing” Vine Voice

“Authentic and gripping political thriller” The Conservative Woman

Post-Referendum Britain and a country on high alert for terrorist attacks.

When a young political activist disappears in London, an off-the-wall PI Karen Andersen is put on the case. She uncovers secrets of a party system which prizes loyalty above truth, a serial killer and a female Jihadi plotting deadly revenge on the British Government.

“A behind-the-scenes twisty political thriller and bullying story of poignancy and compassion. The author has had experience of both having been a national candidate during the 2015 General Election as well as the founder of an anti-bullying charity during the scandal which rocked the Tories after the tragic death of a young activist later that year.” LBC

If you were a fan of Lisbeth Salander, you will love her British counterpart Karen Andersen.

I really enjoyed this story!!
I was really intrigued by the blurb when I read it and it seemed to be a story that was definitely one you could see happening – post referendum, Britain is a country on high alert for terrorist attacks…  so I was pleased to get started on the book as soon as it landed on my Kindle a few weeks back.
The plot is well developed and the story is well written, the characters appeared genuine and they worked well with the plot – this story is book one in Karen Anderson series and it is a really promising start and I am really looking forward to reading more now from this author in the future too.

It had me gripped and it was a compulsive read – I really didn’t want to put the book down after I had started it and it was one that I stayed up late to finish as I devoured the pages!
It is 5 stars from me for this one, I thought that it was a well written political thriller!

Louise Burfitt-Dons was first introduced to the idea of writing conspiracy fiction on meeting Ian Fleming when he visited her birth country of Kuwait in 1960 and befriended her father. Fast forward forty years to her founding the children’s charity Act Against Bullying in 2000. This had her advising police on the manipulation and cover up tactics of young people, girl gangs and junior cyber stalkers. She believes these are the same devices used by political parties, spies and crooks. They form the background to her thriller stories.

Her first novel (June 5th 2018) The Missing Activist (New Century) was the first in a series starring off the wall P I Karen Andersen.  The plot was inspired by her experiences as a Parliamentary candidate in the UK General Election of 2015. Sequel The Killing of the Cherrywood MP was published on March 18th 2020.  She is currently working on book three in the Karen Andersen series.

Louise is also a screenwriter who has worked with producers in the UK and the US.  Recent films screened on TV include Mother of All Secrets (2018), The Ex Next Door (2019, LifeTime) and Fame at a Deadly Cost (LifeTime 2020).  Not all her work has a dark tone. She loves British comedy and wrote the rom-com Christmas in the Highlands (2019) for Triventure Productions which has also made it on to the international television circuits.

She now lives in Chiswick, West London with her ex-pilot husband Donald. She has two grown up daughters and a seven-month year old granddaughter Dempsie Lee Williams.
