DAVID RAKER #10 (A RICHARD & JUDY BOOK CLUB PICK)
On Halloween night, the residents of
Black Gale gather for a dinner party. As the only
nine people living there, they’ve become
close friends as well as neighbours.
They eat, drink and laugh. They play games
and take photographs. Except the photographs
will be the last record of any of them.
By the next morning, the whole village has vanished.
With no bodies, no evidence and no clues, the mystery of what happened at Black Gale remains unsolved two and a half years on. But then the families of the missing turn to investigator, David Raker –– and their obsession becomes his.
What secrets were the neighbours keeping from
their families –– and from each other?
Were they really everything they seemed to be?
And is Raker looking for nine missing people
– or nine dead bodies?
