Fall from Grace – Tim Weaver (David Raker #5)

Published in August 2014

Fall From Grace is the latest missing persons case in the bestselling David Raker series by Tim Weaver.


When Leonard Franks and his wife Ellie leave the clamor of London for a dream retirement on the seclusion of Dartmoor, everything seems perfect. But then the dream shatters. Late on a January afternoon, only two years into their new life, Leonard leaves the house to fetch firewood – and never returns. Nine months later, he’s still missing.

With the police investigation dead in the water, Ellie and her family turn to David Raker. Raker tracks down missing people for a living. He knows how they think. But nothing can prepare him for what he’s about to find.

Because, behind Leonard Franks’s disappearance, lies a deadly secret, buried so deep it was never meant to be found. And, by the time Raker starts to uncover the truth, it’s not just him in danger – it’s everyone he’s ever cared about .


My thoughts

Thanks to Netgalley and the publishers for my copy of this book.

David Raker is a private investigator. He is charged with looking for a man, who just vanished from his remote home on Dartmoor, one evening. Leonard Franks was a high-ranking police officer in the Met, who retired. Suddenly it becomes clear that Franks had his secrets. This is a complex case for David, in which he encounters danger, violence and intrigue.

I just LOVE this series. It is dark, intelligent and amazing to read. Every word is beautifully written and it feels very real. Tim Weaver’s writing style pulls you in and you never want it to end. Raker is very heroic and you are completely on his side, willing him to join the dots. And the ending left me gasping for more!!! I want to know what happens next.

I totally recommend this series. It really is outstanding. Consistently of a high standard and wonderful to read, Tim Weaver is one of my favourite authors


About Northern Crime

Reviewer with a mind of her own. This is a collection of book reviews, which started in 2014. Mostly crime and odd other genres thrown in. Some I loved. Some I loathed. You get the picture.
