"Chasing the Dead" is the debut thriller from Tim Weaver, the first in the chilling "David Raker" series. One year ago, Alex Towne's body was found. One month ago, his mother saw him on the street. One week ago, David Raker agreed to look for him. Now he wishes he hadn't. Mary Towne's son, Alex, went missing six years ago. Five years later he finally turned up - as a corpse in a car wreck. Missing persons investigator David Raker doesn't want the work: it's clearly a sad but hopeless case of mistaken identity brought to him by a woman unable to let go of her son. But haunted by a loss of his own, Raker reluctantly agrees. Big mistake. For as he digs deeper, he discovers that Alex's life was not the innocent one his mother believed. Buried in his past are secrets that were never meant to be found - and dark, dangerous men willing to kill to protect them. Soon Raker will discover that there are things far worse than death...Tim Weaver is a new talent, fans of Mo Hayder and Michael Marshall Smith will love his work. "Chasing the Dead" is the first in the "David Raker" series, following the missing persons investigator. Later works in the series include "The Dead Tracks" and "Vanished'. Praise for Tim Weaver: "Impressive debut...Fans of Mo Hayder will be in seventh hell". ("Guardian"). "Perfect plotting, great characterisation, and the kind of payoff that a thriller of this calibre deserves". ("Bookgeeks"). "A taut thriller". (Barry Forshaw). Tim Weaver was born in 1977. At eighteen, he left school and started working in magazine journalism, and has since gone on to develop a successful career writing about films, TV, sport, games and technology. He is married with a young daughter, and lives near Bath. "Vanished" is Tim's third "David Raker" novel, which follow his highly acclaimed debut "Chasing the Dead" and its sequel, "The Dead Tracks". Tortured by his wife's early death, David Raker is one of the most charismatic, sensitive and unique missing persons investigators in current crime fiction.
