Tim Weaver is the author of 14 novels, including the David Raker mysteries You Were Gone, No One Home and The Blackbird. He's also written the standalone, Missing Pieces, as well as the limited edition David Raker story collection, The Shadow at the Door.
Hopefully, you might have heard of some of his books –– or, even better, read them and enjoyed them. They've been selected for the Richard and Judy Book Club three times, shortlisted for a National Book Award, and been nominated for both the Crime Writers' Association Dagger in the Library and Ian Fleming Steel Dagger awards. Oh, and –– thanks to the amazing support of readers like you –– they've also been Sunday Times Top 3 bestsellers and number ones on Kindle, iBooks and Audible. As well as all of that, Tim is also busy developing an original TV series alongside one of the drama team responsible for Line of Duty.
Away from writing, he lives in Bath, home to overpriced real estate and Georgian terraces, and he's lucky enough to write full-time, allowing him to build his day around the things he does best: staring out of the window, and making endless cups of tea.
