Hello! I'm Tim Weaver, author of 11 novels, including the David Raker mysteries You Were Gone and No One Home and a new standalone novel, Missing Pieces. Hopefully, you might have heard of my books –– or, even better, read them and enjoyed them. They have, over time, twice been selected for the Richard and Judy Book Club, 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 5 bestsellers and number ones on Kindle, iBooks and Audible. Away from writing, I live in Bath, home to overpriced real estate and genteel Georgian terraces, and I'm lucky enough to write full-time, allowing me to build my day around the things I do best: staring out of the window, and making cups of tea. If you want to find out more about me and my work, just scroll down the page here…

Who is David Raker?
This is kind of a biggie if you've never read any of my books –– or even if you have.
Lost People, Lost Places
Alongside the release of What Remains, I wrote this piece, 'Lost People, Lost Places' about my fascination with abandoned places, and how they run in parallel to David Raker's hunt for the missing. You might like it.

Richard and Judy Book Club – My Top 10 Thrillers
"I wonder what Tim's top 10 thrillers OF HIS LIFETIME are," you've probably spent zero minutes of your life thinking. But anyway! That didn't stop me writing something for the Richard and Judy Book Club about just that. And, as you'll see if you click the link, I break my own rules straight off the bat. Poor show by me.
