Fault Line by Robert Goddard
  

Sarah Broadhurst's view...

One of my favourite authors with one of his best. This man knows how to keep you guessing and then twist you round once you were sure you knew where you were going, but then suddenly you don't. He'll turn a twist on a twist. I love him. Here, in first person narrative, we have a forty year old mystery, a high body-count, a contemporary setting with flashbacks and an ordinary man charged with writing the history of his employer's china clay company. This is Goddard's 23rd novel so you've lots of reading to do if you are new to him. May I recommend you start with his first, Past Caring.

If you like Robert Goddard you might also like to read books by Robert Ryan, Dennis Lehane and William Boyd.

Synopsis

Fault Line by Robert Goddard

A search for missing documents in an international mining company becomes a voyage into dangerous waters. A dead friend, a lost lover and a clutch of mysteries from Jonathan Kellaway's youth in Cornwall and Italy in the late 1960s come back to haunt him when he is tasked with discovering why there is a gaping hole in his employer's records - and to tempt him with the hope that he may at last learn the truth about the tragedies of those years. It is a truth that has claimed several victims before. If he pursues it hard and long enough, he may only add himself to the list. But pursue it he will. Because the truth, he comes to realize, is the secret that has consumed his life. This time he will not stop ...until he has found it.
