THE FIRST DAVID RAKER THRILLER
"This impressive debut delivers on pace…
The plotting is pleasingly sinuous, playing on
primal fears of darkness and devilry… Fans of
Mo Hayder will be in seventh hell…"
It starts out as a sad but hopeless case of mistaken identity. A year after the death of her son Alex, Mary Towne is convinced she's seen him alive – and she wants missing persons investigator David Raker to find him. Reluctant at first, but haunted by a loss of his own, Raker reluctantly agrees. Big mistake.
Raker discovers that Alex's life wasn't 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 . . .
