DCI Melanie Craw has had angry words and disagreements with David Raker in the past... but now she turns to him as her last, and perhaps only, hope of finding her father. Having no official assistance from Craw or any of the local authorities....none of the usual resources available when working a case...and no access to official records...he finds himself having to search all of cases Franks worked for the Met’s Homicide and Serious Crime unit. What he finds frightens even this harden investigator. We follow David as he finds himself entangled in one strange situation after another. It's a fairly long book but the reading is easy and you just have to go with David to the end. ( )

Wonderful read. Tim Weaver certainly hits his stride with #5 in the David Raker series. The off-putting violence of the early novels is gone leaving complex plotting with surprising twists. It starts off a bit slow, but gathers speed to be quite entertaining. I could do without the "unreliable narrator" device, but it wasn't overused. I don't understand why this series hasn't been more readily available in US. ( )

A brilliant story which has you guessing until the final pages and certainly I didn't work out any of the plot twists, very inventive and keeps you turning the pages to find out what happens next. David Raker is hired by a policewoman to find her missing father, a retired senior Met policeman, who disappeared from his retirement home on Dartmoor. Highly recommended. ( )

Mi piacciono molto i libri di Weaver. Sono storie thriller veramente ben scritte e costruite. ( )

Fall From Grace is the fifth book in Tim Weaver's David Raker series. But it can certainly be read as a stand alone.

Who is Raker? Well, his background is in journalism, but he has since set himself up as private missing persons investigator.

Leonard Franks retires from the Metropolitan Police and heads to Dartmoor to spend his retirement years with his wife in the country. Until the day he goes out to get firewood and disappears. Not a trace of him, despite a police investigation. After nearly a year, his daughter Melanie, also working in the Met, employs Raker to have another look. This is unusual in that Raker and Melanie have a antagonistic past with each other. But, in spite of that Raker takes the case.

Raker's investigation is methodical and measured, with one revelation or clue leading to his next avenue of inquiry. But the case itself is not as straight forward. Weaver has created a mystery that is more complicated than what I initially imagined it would be. Many revelations along the way led to a much different outcome than the one I initially imagined. I did find the plot become a bit overly convoluted as the end neared.

Weaver weaves in a personal storyline for Raker. He has recently discovered he is the father of an adult daughter. Their relationship seems a bit forced to me, but it gives Raker more depth.

I've read previous books in this series, but chose to listen to this latest. The reader was Brit Michael Healy. His voice is measured and well modulated, with a slight gravelly tone His accent is easily understood. It conjured up a slightly different picture of Raker than the one I had in my head from previous books. But it fit - he sounds confident and in control. Dialogue and action scenes are given their due, with inflection and intonation. It's funny what you hear when listening to an audiobook. I could hear the sighs, some swallows and a few other non verbal sounds that make it actually sound like you are there. I like the Raker character, but did find that the audio version made him seen a bit pompous in parts. But this didn't detract from my overall enjoyment of the book. ( )
