Full of suspense
This is the first Tim Weaver book I've read. Drawn in by the cover and blurb, I loved the premise of this book; nine villagers seemingly vanish on Halloween without a trace. Private detective Raker is brought in to crack the case after the police investigation draws a blank. The story unfolds cleverly and intrigue is created through another story from decades ago about a murder case in LA which is weaved in and somehow connected. There is lots of suspense in this novel and it certainly gets you thinking as you ride the twists and turns of the immersive writing. I did sometimes feel that the pace was a little slow, but perhaps I was a bit impatient as I was dying to see how it all turned out.
Overall, I'd highly recommend this one - just clear your diary as you won't want any distractions.
