Book Description

A bestseller in the UK, this gripping thriller of a family that vanishes into thin air is Tim Weaver’s American debut

Emily Kane arrives at her sister Carrie’s house to find the front door unlocked, dinner on the table, and the family nowhere to be found—Carrie, her husband, and two daughters have disappeared. When the police turn up no leads, Emily turns to her former boyfriend David Raker, a missing persons investigator, to track the family down. As Raker pursues the case, he discovers evidence of a sinister cover-up, decades in the making and with a long trail of bodies behind it.

Tim Weaver’s thrillers have been hugely popular in the UK, and now Never Coming Back will introduce his beloved character David Raker to American audiences. Set in Las Vegas and a small fishing village in England, the novel is a smart, fast-paced thriller sure to keep readers guessing until the very end.

My Review

Tim Weaver is a British author whose books are now becoming available in North America. I had not previously read any of Tim Weaver's books before Never Coming Back. While this book is part of the David Raker series, it can stand on its own.

I always enjoy missing persons cases so I looked forward to reading Never Coming Back. David Raker, the main character in Weaver's novels, is a missing persons investigator. Tim Weaver is a wonderful surprise! He is an excellent thriller writer. This novel which is set in Las Vegas and in England, will keep you on the edge of your seat.

North American readers are in for a treat. Just went on sale in early sure to pick this one up.
