A truly captivating and bold story that stings and provokes with fierce intensity. David Raker is back in his seventh missing person enquiry, a woman has apparently vanished into thin air, can Raker find her, or will he in fact lose himself? If you haven't yet read any of the David Raker Thriller series, do go back to the beginning and start with Chasing the Dead. From the get go in ‘Broken Heart’, my attention was well and truly snared, I wanted to insist to Raker that he took the case. Tim Weaver’s writing ensured I felt, I believed, I lived the story. Occasionally another voice, other than Raker’s is heard, this effectively jolted me away from the investigation, made me think, made me ponder… ‘Broken Heart’ is clever and fascinating, a story where trendrils of awareness coil and twist and expand into one wonderfully intriguing and powerful tale. ~ Liz Robinson

Broken Heart by Tim Weaver

From the bestselling author of Never Coming Back and the chart-topping Missing podcast, comes the latest David Raker missing persons investigation. 'Weaver has become one of this country's most respected, bestselling crime writers, and he fully deserves to be.' Daily Mail *** Where did she go? What did she know? A woman drives to a secluded beauty spot on the Somerset coast. CCTV watches her enter but doesn't see her leaving. In fact, Lynda Korin is never seen again. How can someone just disappear? Her sister calls missing persons investigator David Raker. For him, the mystery of where she went is only the start. The real question is why a woman with no reason to run would choose to leave her entire life behind? Was it her decision? Or did someone make it for her? Raker is an expert at following the echoes of decades-old lies. But only Lynda Korin knows the most shocking secret of all - and she's missing, presumed dead...


Praise for Tim Weaver:

'Impressive ...a dark, complex and visceral read' Financial Times

'Weaver has become one of this country's most respected, best-selling crime writers, and he fully deserves to be. Written with elegance, care and craft, What Remains is a luminous example of what a considerable talent Weaver has become. Catch him at once' Daily Mail

'Weaver's books get better each time - tense, complex, sometimes horrific, written with flair as well as care' Guardian

'I couldn't put it down' Sun

'Weaver knows how to construct a complex plot ... you will be kept guessing until the last few pages. David Raker has joined a select band of fictional characters whose return in a new book excites existing fans and collects new ones with every publication ... he dominates the stage ... one of the more vibrant and unusual protagonists in modern crime fiction' Crime Fiction Lover
