Publisher's Summary

Seventeen-year-old Megan Carver was an unlikely runaway. A straight-A student from a happy home, she studied hard and rarely got into trouble. Six months on, she's never been found.

Missing persons investigator David Raker knows what it's like to grieve. He knows the shadowy world of the lost, too. So, when he's hired by Megan's parents to find out what happened, he recognizes their pain - but knows that the darkest secrets can be buried deep.

And Megan's secrets could cost him his life. Because as Raker investigates her disappearance, he realizes everything is a lie. People close to her are dead. Others are too terrified to talk. And soon the conspiracy of silence leads Raker towards a forest on the edge of the city. A place with a horrifying history, which was once the hunting ground for a brutal, twisted serial killer. A place known as the Dead Tracks.

Patience ... Patience ...

This audiobook surprised me. Having listened to it for an hour or so (it's 14 hours long), I was about to give up; even the narrator seemed uninspired by the slow-developing story. I guess my mind wondered a few minutes because I was suddenly startled by something from the audiobook -- "wait, wait, what did he just say?!" -- as I quickly backed it up a few minutes and listened again. And then it was on: a very good mystery, a quite likable main character, and a terrific evil villain. Don't give up on this audiobook; it will soon leave you on the edge of your seat and you'll not want it to end. Patience really is a virtue in this well-written mystery.

Solid & Compelling

Great story & performance, reader nails British, Irish, Scottish accents. Story is deep and addictive like the other Raker books, but loses some believability at the end
