    This is the 2nd book in the David Raker series by author Tim Weaver Normally I read series in order but with this one for some reason I have had a scatter gun approach Generally this hasn t been a problem but I would recommend reading this book before the 3rd in the series Vanished.Lead character David Raker specialises in finding missing people and in this book is asked to track down Megan, a young girl who has gone missing and police enquiries appear to have hit a brick wall David is appr This is the 2nd book in the David Raker series by author Tim Weaver Normally I read series in order but with this one for some reason I have had a scatter gun approach Generally this hasn t been a problem but I would recommend reading this book before the 3rd in the series Vanished.Lead character David Raker specialises in finding missing people and in this book is asked to track down Megan, a young girl who has gone missing and police enquiries appear to have hit a brick wall David is approached by her parents to find her but David finds himself involved with an historical serial killer, a police cover up andmissing girls.This is an excellent series that I feel is a little bit different to other thrillers The books are well written and in David Raker we have an excellent character with the usual personal issues and an eerie skill of uncovering the truth.Great series that I am thoroughly enjoying and have all the other books ready to read

    The Dead Tracks is the second book in the amazing David Raker series This book is a quite important book if you re looking to read the whole series as it introduces a number of characters who make reappearances throughout the series, giving you information to their backstory along with showing you how they came to interact with David Whilst I would not say it is necessary to have read the prior books in this series you can read them as standalone books if you want to I really would recomme The Dead Tracks is the second book in the amazing David Raker series This book is a quite important book if you re looking to read the whole series as it introduces a number of characters who make reappearances throughout the series, giving you information to their backstory along with showing you how they came to interact with David Whilst I would not say it is necessary to have read the prior books in this series you can read them as standalone books if you want to I really would recommend working your way through the books as there is an interesting continuous story throughout.The Dead Tracks starts off slower than I would have liked, but once the ball gets rolling it is nonstop action throughout as David uncovers the many different layers to his most recent case Whilst it is not quite as good as the first book, in my opinion, it does contain the many good twists necessary to keep an individual gripped throughout as David tries to find out the truth behind the missing teenage girl he has been hired to find.Whilst not my favourite in the series it was still a good read and I would most certainly recommend the David Raker novels to others

    Oh how I love David Raker He s so smooth, got the answer to everything, he s like James Bond, only better You may be able to tell that Tim weaver s brilliant character feels very real to me I absolutely adore him and if I were 20 years younger, and about 14 stones lighter , I know he d love me too As is my unintentional custom, I have listened to these in entirely the wrong order This in no way detracts from the sheer pleasure of the story another intricately woven plot that is so clever Oh how I love David Raker He s so smooth, got the answer to everything, he s like James Bond, only better You may be able to tell that Tim weaver s brilliant character feels very real to me I absolutely adore him and if I were 20 years younger, and about 14 stones lighter , I know he d love me too As is my unintentional custom, I have listened to these in entirely the wrong order This in no way detracts from the sheer pleasure of the story another intricately woven plot that is so clever it is off the scale I have no idea what narrator Joe Coen looks like, but his voice is perfect as David Raker, and I am praying to all my gods that he remains the narrator throughout the series It really seems unfair that the maximum award I can give Tim Weaver is 5 stars, because if ever there was a 10 star listen, this is it Absolutely perfect in every way You simply must listen to The Dead Tracks You can thank me later

    This review contains will spoil book one for those yet to readWow I read the first David Raker book, Chasing the Dead, only a few days ago and upon finishing it immediately started this, book two After finishing it I can safely say that out of nearly 170 books read in 2013, this is one of my favourites Tim Weaver is a fantastic writer and one hell of a storyteller Much like Simon Kernick, the books pick up the pace very quickly and do not let up until the final page In fact I d say that This review contains will spoil book one for those yet to readWow I read the first David Raker book, Chasing the Dead, only a few days ago and upon finishing it immediately started this, book two After finishing it I can safely say that out of nearly 170 books read in 2013, this is one of my favourites Tim Weaver is a fantastic writer and one hell of a storyteller Much like Simon Kernick, the books pick up the pace very quickly and do not let up until the final page In fact I d say that this book and Chasing the Dead were better than any Kernick book I ve read so far and I LOVE Kernick s books I felt like in book one that Raker was flawed I thought this because he is portrayed as a man who had a good job as a journalist travelling around the world with his wife, he then became a missing persons investigator which became his sole focus after her death Then, in Chasing the Dead he kills albeit to survive and it felt to me that Weaver was using tactics that other authors may use, eg having characters kill and or act out of character simply to enhance the story and make itof a shocking read but I felt in this book Raker s explanation for killing justified it for me and helped me find his characterbelievable and relatable than I did in the first book Also in this book Raker finds himself on the run from the police so I think his character is always going to find himself in some sort of trouble The cases he is given start out quite simple but after a few chapters the action starts and you will find it hard to stop reading At 87% on Kindle it felt like the book could ve finished there but it went on for another 20 or so minutes which a fewshocks before the end of the book The length of the book however didn t feel too long like some authors have a habit of doing and every page, every word was used to its full advantage You can already see the change in Raker from the first book and I can t wait to see where Weaver is going to take him next This book like book one takes place over a time period of less than two weeks and everything that goes on in that time is so action packed you feel like your head is going to explode Overall yet another fantastic read from Tim Weaver who is fast becoming one if my favourite authors in this genre
