Publisher's Summary

When Leonard Franks and his wife, Ellie, leave London for a dream retirement in Dartmoor, everything seems perfect. But one afternoon, Leonard goes to fetch firewood and never returns.
With the police investigation dead in the water, Ellie turns to David Raker. Raker tracks down missing people for a living, but nothing can prepare him for this. Because, behind Leonard's disappearance lies a deadly secret, buried so deep it was never meant to be found.

Enjoyable

Any additional comments?

Not a bad book. "I find missing people" a little over dramatic in my opinion. The main character is OK, I didnt particularly like him, rather self absorbed and full of himself and his ability. Nevertheless it is a well written book, the narration is good and it all flows along pretty nicely. Its just not great and not particulary sad when it finished. I will continue the hunt for another 5 star listen.

poor quality

Didn't finish this because:
1) It was badly written, with entire phrases being regularly repeated.
2) It was heading in the direction of a police corruption drama rather than an investigation.
3) The plot was lousy. The detective frequently dismisses entire lines of enquiry because 'he just knows', there is no thoughtful analysis at all.
4) Also there is no suspense or interesting descriptions of surroundings. Nor is there any psychological depth to the writing.

Can't think of anything positive to say other than that the narration was intelligible.
