From the Back Cover:
For millions of Londoners, the morning of 17 December is just like any other. But not for Sam Wren. An hour after leaving home, he gets onto a tube train – and never gets off again. No eyewitnesses. No trace of him on security cameras. Six months later, he’s still missing.
Out of options and desperate for answers, Sam’s wife Julia hires David Raker to track him down. Raker has made a career out of finding the lost. He knows how they think. And, in missing person cases, the only certainty is that everyone has something to hide. But in this case the secrets go deeper than anyone imagined.
For, as Raker starts to suspect that even the police are lying to him, someone is watching. Someone who knows what happened on the tube that day. And, with Raker in his sights, he’ll do anything to keep Sam’s secrets to himself . . .
This was one of Hannah’s books for January as part of the #12booksin12months reading challenge.
Why did you choose to read this book?
It was recommended to me by a list based on another book that I loved. I had not read any of his books before so was intrigued to see what it was like. Blurb sounded good too.
What did you like most about this book?
Being a new author to me, it took me a while to ‘get’ into his style. There is a lot of description and the ‘setting of the scene’ and introduction of the character took a while. It was very cleverly written – two story lines going on at the same time so I found I had to concentrate a lot to make sure I didn’t miss anything. Not easy when you’re grabbing 5 mins/10 mins here and there or being interrupted by little children!
The storyline is great / the twists and turns exciting / the descriptiveness of the characters and scenes made the book very real. I would recommend it but would suggest putting aside chunks of time to read it rather than little bits!
Anything you didn’t like about this book?
I just wish I had been able to read it in bigger chunks as I think I would have enjoyed it more!
