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.

Most Helpful

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.

Any additional comments?

This is a superb thriller with many twists and turns. I could not put it down and now I have finished it, I am going to listen to it again. One of those audible books you don't want to end but at the same time you want to get to the end to find out whodunit. More please!
