Book summary

Chasing the Dead is the debut thriller from Tim Weaver, the first in the chilling David Raker series. One year ago, Alex Towne's body was found. One month ago, his mother saw him on the street.

One week ago, David Raker agreed to look for him. Now he wishes he hadn't. Mary Towne's son, Alex, went missing six years ago.

Five years later he finally turned up - as a corpse in a car wreck. Missing persons investigator David Raker doesn't want the work: it's clearly a sad but hopeless case of mistaken identity brought to him by a woman unable to let go of her son. But haunted by a loss of his own, Raker reluctantly agrees.

Big mistake. For as he digs deeper, he discovers that Alex's life was not the innocent one his mother believed. Buried in his past are secrets that were never meant to be found - and dark, dangerous men willing to kill to protect them.

Soon Raker will discover that there are things far worse than death...Tim Weaver is a new talent, fans of Mo Hayder and Michael Marshall Smith will love his work. Chasing the Dead is the first in the David Raker series, following the missing persons investigator. Later works in the series include The Dead Tracks and Vanished.
