Meet Chris

Chris Longmuir - was born in Wiltshire and now lives in Angus. Her family moved to Scotland when she was two. After leaving school at fifteen, Chris worked in shops, offices, mills and factories, and was a bus conductor for a spell, before working as a social worker for Angus Council (latterly serving as Assistant Principal Officer for Adoption and Fostering).

Chris is an award winning novelist and has published three novels in her Dundee Crime Series. Night Watcher, the first book in the series, won the Scottish Association of Writers’ Pitlochry Award, and the sequel, Dead Wood, won the Dundee International Book Prize, as well as the Pitlochry Award. Missing Believed Dead is the third book in the series.

Her crime novels are set in Dundee, Scotland, and have been described as scary, atmospheric, page turners. Chris also writes historical sagas, short stories and historical articles which have been published in America and Britain. Writing is like an addiction to me, Chris says, I go into withdrawals without it. She is currently working on a further 2 crime novels.

Chris is a member of the Society of Authors, the Crime Writers Association and the Scottish Association of Writers. She designed her own website and confesses to being a techno-geek who builds computers in her spare time.

Blurb for Missing Believed Dead

Missing children! Internet predators! Dead bodies!

She crossed his arms over his chest, and placed the jade beads in his eyes. ‘To remind you of me,’ she said.

Jade was 13 when she disappeared, five years ago, and DS Bill Murphy suspects someone from her family is responsible for recent Dundee murders. But is it her mother, Diane, who now suffers from OCD? Or Emma, her twin sister, who was catatonic for a year after Jade’s disappearance. Or Jade’s brother, Ryan, who enjoys dressing in women’s clothes and is going through a sexuality crisis, unsure whether or not he is gay.

What happened to Jade? Is she alive or dead? Or has she returned to wreak a terrible revenge on all male predators?


Here is the answer....

D S Bill Murphy

But what is the question?

The most original question in the comment box will win a Kindle copy of Missing Believed Dead

Good luck!


  1. Whoa! Here is my question... Who was captured on video running down the main street in Dundee wearing nothing more than a smile?

  2. Ooh! I'm looking forward to the questions, particularly the ridiculous ones. I wonder what our followers will come up with?

  3. Love your question, Pauline. I've already got a copy of the book so my name doesn't have to be put in for the draw. Hmmm... Who was caught on video smoking crack cocaine and vehemently denied it? (not Toronto mayor, Rob Ford)

  4. Who arrived on the doorstep, unasked, offering to do a security check of the house.

  5. Hm, been giving this some thought. Who seized Jade's clothes as evidence, came out of the closet and admitted that he was a cross dresser just like her brother Ryan?

  6. Who sent Chris Longmuir a 'Bill' for being 'D'azzling and 'S'exy and inventing 'Murphy's Law?

  7. Everyone else's questions are so much more inventive than mine. But mine really happened. Can't now recall his name, but he was definitely on the look out for a bored housewife....!

  8. I love the answers. Now the problem is, how do I fit them into the next book about the lovely Bill?
