It begins well and Weaver builds a creepy atmosphere but somewhere round about the middle of the book it all becomes an endless cycle of violent confrontations. David Raker quickly turns into Rambo able to withstand any amount of physical violence. I think the biggest problem here is that you just don't care about any of the character David Raker finds missing people.
I think the biggest problem here is that you just don't care about any of the characters, or what happens to them. They're like ghosts in fog. The revelations at the end were for me just too silly to have any impact.

There is not much sense of time and place either. It's supposed to be Winter, but despite references to snow it could be the middle of summer. It feels as if the author lost his grip on his characters and what happens around them. Undistinguished and sadly forgettable.

David Raker, a former journalist and now a missing persons investigator, who is still mourning for the loss of his beloved wife, is asked to look into disappearance and mysterious death of Alex Towne.
During the investigation David bumped into much bigger mystery than just a disappearance and thereby put his life in acute danger. It was my first book by the author and, considering the fact that it was also his debut novel, he got already my full attention- even if I didn't rate it with a full five stars - and I am sure that he will be getting better in the following installments about David Raker, a missing persons investigator.
A David Raker Mystery
A gripping plot, a creepy atmosphere and a mystic aura over it. At some point though I started to worry that it would turn into a paranormal story, so weird it was! Thanks God, no genre changing. Bottom line; I'm going to read more of the series anyway. It has a big potential. View 2 comments.
Sep 27, Mike Finn rated it liked it Shelves: crime , 1-in-a-series. The novel is centred around a big secret. This is a plus for page turning appeal but requires more than a little effort to suspend disbelief. The big secret generates violence that escalates and becomes increasingly and disturbingly intimate as the story progresses. The violence is graphically and skillfully described.

This made the book harder to read and, by the end, harder to believe. Our hero is subjected to treatment that would put someone in hospital for weeks and perhaps cripple them physically and emotionally for life and still puts up a fight. I found this implausible. Nevertheless, the book is well written, well plotted and has a strong central character.
Well, shit. That was a ride.
Chasing the Shadows
David used to be a journalist but stopped when his wife was diagnosed with cancer so that he could spend time with her. Instead, she nudged him towards solving missing person cases, and he was pretty good at it. After his wife dies, David grieves but still does missing persons. Enter Mary, an old friend whose son was killed in a car accident 5 years ago This, on the one hand, kept me at the edge of my seat.
On the other It was annoying. It can be gruesome, so if you're squeamish, this might not be for you. And it's like bad. So yea. But I did enjoy this one. I may continue to read more of the David Raker series. I just need to be in "gruesome thriller with side of idiotic PI" mode. I feel like I need to watch unicorns and rainbows now I was a little bit tentative about this read, unsure what to expect, however upon starting it I was unable to put it down. Throughout there are twists and turns as the story unfolds, the mystery much deeper than you would have ever imagined.
To begin with I was a little bit put off by the constant references the main character — David — kept making about his wife yet with time these simply came to be a part of the story and I welcomed them as they gave David more depth than I had originally expe I was a little bit tentative about this read, unsure what to expect, however upon starting it I was unable to put it down.

With interesting characters and a gripping writing style, you will not be able to put down the book. Honestly, I was not at all disappointed. It's full of suspense. But it's a bit too much. The escapes of David are a bit too unlikey for me. Mar 23, Tracy Fenton rated it really liked it.

Chasing The Dead
This is a really fast-paced action thriller with a high body count and several twists I did NOT see coming. A great introduction to this series which I have been reliably informed gets better and better! Mar 17, Linda Lpp rated it really liked it. Once again a thriller with many twists and turns. Tim Weaver certainly has a style of writing that keeps you reading, at the expense of wanting to do anything else.
When finished like David you can relax Shame, as I'd hoped that I'd discovered a new author to follow, but the only reason I've made a note of his name is in order to avoid any future of his books Apr 01, Andrew Hawke rated it did not like it. Nov 25, Maxine rated it really liked it. I enjoyed this novel, but not enough for five stars.
The plot was nicely complex, and satisfyingly far fetched, however the dark points in the novel lacked a sense of jeopardy. Worth the read though. I struggled with rating this one. I first read the fourth book, 'Never Coming Back', which, whilst being a tad unbelievable, I really enjoyed it. For the most part I really enjoyed this one too, going back to the introduction of David Raker's escapades was a good idea.

I don't find him as endearing or likeable as other sleuths but his backstory of course there are relationship issues embedded, as with every crime novel was interesting.
