Publisher's Summary

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.

I liked it

Solid. Good story. Kept me guessing. Took a while to figure out how it would end. Author worked hard at keeping the ending from falling flat as so many books do. He succeeded. Narrator might seem off putting at first. But hang in there are the voice grows on you until it feels familiar.

unnecessarily gruesome, awful narrator

Tho this book depicts a disturbed psychopathic killer, it provides a degree of gruesome detail far beyond what's needed to drive the plot or characterisation. The book drags on and on, not helped by a narrator who reads it like a shopping list with an appalling 'British' accent. An auditory ordeal
