Sarah Broadhurst's view...

August 2014 Book of the Month.

The follow up to Never Coming Back sees David Raker helping Melanie Craw, a Met police officer from the earlier book, find her missing father, also a Met police officer now retired to Dartmoor. This all harks back to a ‘cold case’ of some twenty years earlier when a woman was murdered. Melanie’s father now appears to be investigating the crime privately. It seems not everyone is as clean and honest as they appear. With bent coppers, corruption and jealousy, the mystery unfolds in an off-shore island hospital, all very intriguing. It follows on from his last book but is quite happy to be read on its own.

If you like Tim Weaver you might also like to read books by Peter James, J. A. Kerley and Michael Marshall.

Synopsis

Fall from Grace David Raker Novel by Tim Weaver

Fall From Grace is the latest missing persons case in the bestselling David Raker series by Tim Weaver. You don't really know anybody. Not even the ones you love...When Leonard Franks and his wife Ellie leave the clamour of London for a dream retirement on the seclusion of Dartmoor, everything seems perfect. But then the dream shatters. Late on a January afternoon, only two years into their new life, Leonard leaves the house to fetch firewood - and never returns. Nine months later, he's still missing. With the police investigation dead in the water, Ellie and her family turn to David Raker. Raker tracks down missing people for a living. He knows how they think. But nothing can prepare him for what he's about to find. Because, behind Leonard Franks' disappearance, lies a deadly secret, buried so deep it was never meant to be found. And, by the time Raker starts to uncover the truth, it's not just him in danger - it's everyone he's ever cared about...

For me, to read is to learn, to reflect, to escape, to think, to contemplate and my time for space and calm.
