Naming himself Richard Kite, he spends the next 10 months desperately trying to find out who he is. But despite media appeals and the efforts of the police, no one knows him.
Richard's last hope may be private investigator David Raker - a seasoned locator of missing people. But Raker has more questions than answers.
Who is Richard Kite?
Why does no one know him?
And what links him to the body of a woman found beside a London railway line two years ago?
Could Richard be responsible for her death - or is he next?

I am missing
I was gripped by the suspense early on but two thirds into the story I thought it was being excessively drawn out. A concentration on too much unnecessary detail irritated me. I wanted the story to notch up a gear.

Not the best Tin Weaver book I have read.
Having read a number of excellent books by this author, I was a little disappointed by this one. The plot was too implausible for the reader to be drawn into it and the convoluted series of events seemed to drag on for far too long. It was hard to accept that the headmaster of a top public school would in fact be a mass murderer or that the disappearance of a number of Argentinian women would have gone almost unnoticed. One also had to wonder how Raker would be reimbursed for all his efforts and particularly his travelling expenses, which must have been enormous.
There were, however, redeeming features in this novel. The descriptions of the island, its weather and its landscape, were highly effective in building up the brooding atmosphere at the centre of the novel.
To sum up, I found the novel too long and too complicated but I do not think this will put me off reading more of Mr. Weaver' s stories in the future.
