When a young man wakes up bruised and beaten, with no memory of who he is or where he came from, the press immediately dub him 'The Lost Man'.

Naming himself Richard Kite, he spends the next ten 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?

A fast-paced story packed with twists and surprises . . . a thrilling and hugely enjoyable novel with a frantic, engrossing finale -- Jon Coates * Daily Express *
I love the brilliant opening twist - a missing person with no memory searching for himself. It had me racing to the end -- Fiona Barton * Sunday Times bestselling author of The Widow *
Tim Weaver is the rising star of British crime and I Am Missing will haunt your dreams -- Tony Parsons * Sunday Times bestselling author of the DC Max Wolfe series *

Wow, I'm going to be thinking about this book for a long time! Such an original premise and so compelling that I didn't want to put it down.

I enjoyed it so much I'm now going to read the rest of the David Raker series -- Claire Douglas * Sunday Times bestselling author of Local Girl Missing *
A really exciting, interesting and genuinely original read. I had no idea where it was going -- Gillian McAllister * Sunday Times bestselling author of Everything but the Truth *
