Another awesome read. Tim Weaver is one to watch when it comes to hard, gritty thrillers.
As much as I dislike reading violence, I can't put these books down. They're brutal and shocking and even as I clench my fists and curl my toes and tense every muscle as I read I can't stop turning the pages. My heart races as I read faster and faster and there's always a twist somewhere in there that shocks me more than anything.
You very slowly learn more about David Raker while you read these books. I'd definitely suggest reading them in order to get the full bearing of this character. Raker's life itself is a pretty harrowing story. His losses, what's driven him to finding missing persons, it's all another addictive thread to these stories which reveal another side of the character.
