THE FIFTH DAVID RAKER THRILLER
"A lacerating investigation which takes
readers into the furthest reaches of obsession.
A dark, complex and visceral read…"
After decades of service as a high-ranking detective, Leonard Franks moves with his wife to a secluded farmhouse, far from the clamour of the city. Less than a year later, their dream retirement is torn apart. Leonard heads outside to fetch firewood from the back of their home – and never returns.
With the police investigation at a dead end, Leonard’s family turn to David Raker, a missing persons investigator with a gift for finding the lost. But nothing can prepare Raker for the devastating secret at the heart of this disappearance… and by the time he realises what it is, and how deep the lies go, it's not just him in danger – it's everyone he cares about.
