This book introduces David Raker, a journalist turned missing person investigator. The plot – he is hired by Mary to find her son, Alex. The twist – Alex had been killed in a car accident some time previously.
David Raker is a sad figure, a man trying to come to terms with the death of his wife, but he is also a man who does not give up. While investigating Alex, he is threatened, intimidated, kidnapped and tortured. The violence is hard going at times, but the book is totally gripping. It’s full of twists and turns and I never saw the final twist coming – I wasn’t just on the wrong road, I was on the wrong planet.
There are more David Raker books and I’m definitely going to read some more.
