Nella notte di Halloween, i nove residenti di Black Gale si riuniscono per una cena. Mangiano, bevono e ridono. Giocano e scattano foto. Le foto saranno l'ultimo ricordo di ciascuno di loro. La mattina seguente, infatti, l'intero villaggio sembrerà svanito nel nulla. Senza cadaveri, prove o indizi, il mistero di cosa successe al Black Gale rimane irrisolto per i successivi due anni e mezzo. Ma alla fine le famiglie delle persone scomparse ingaggiano un investigatore, David Raker, per vedere se riesce a scoprire qualcosa, là dove la polizia sembra essersi arresa. Da quel momento, l'ossessione dei parenti diventa anche la sua... Quali segreti i vicini nascondevano alle loro famiglie, e tra di loro? Erano veramente quello che sembravano? L'investigatore Raker è alla ricerca di 9 persone scomparse o di 9 cadaveri? In una narrazione che va avanti e indietro nel tempo, Raker si ritrova nel caso più contorto, stimolante e pericoloso, in cui iniziano a emergere le connessioni tra Los Angeles e gli abitanti di Black Gale.

I have heard so many good things about Tim Weaver's series featuring missing person investigator, David Raker, that I finally decided to try it, this is the 10th addition. What I can say is that Weaver is a brilliant crime writer, and here he gives us a spooky central mystery worthy of The Twilight

I devoured this, as I have every other novel in this brilliant series, every time I review I say “this is the best one yet”. Well guess what? This IS the best one yet. No One Home for a start has an excellent central premise, one that immediately intrigues just from the blurb. An entire village vanis Leggi tutto
This was the absolute bomb, I enjoyed this book just so much. I am a relatively new reader of this author after I requested the previous book in this series without realising it was part of an ongoing series. I was that impressed with it that when I read the description for this instalment I just had Leggi tutto
Tim Weaver isn't afraid of a challenge. This instalment features not one, or even two, but three or maybe four separate, yet connected strands. For the most part, this works really well. It's primarily set up through Raker's POV and an old case run out of LA by one of the first female homicide detec Leggi tutto
This is the 10th book in the David Raker series by author Tim Weaver. I love Tim Weaver's writing and decided very early on when reading the 1st book in the series that I would purchase the rest of the books.

The tenth private investigator David Raker instalment takes place around the festival of Halloween which right away creates an ominous, tense atmosphere and this unde Leggi tutto
I’ve never read a book by Tim Weaver but I’ve been interested in reading a David Raker book for ages. I chose this as the first one even though it’s the 10th one so I’m kind of going backwards. I did really enjoy this book and it was different from any other books I normally read and definitely the Leggi tutto
I was really drawn in by the premise of this book and was initially hooked, but as the story went on I became less and less engaged. The story, though well written, seemed rather dry and the plot increasingly unlikely. The motivations and actions of the villain of the piece appeared a bit too far fe Leggi tutto
