Publisher's Summary

Six years ago Alex Town went missing. One year ago his 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. Missing persons investigator David Raker doesn’t want the work: it’s clearly a sad but hopeless case of mistaken identity 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....


What the Critics Say

"This impressive debut delivers on pace and stomach-churning brutality." (Guardian)

A pretty good listen

Would you listen to Chasing the Dead again? Why?

I probably will, because I'm a bit of a Peter Wickham fan, and bought the book solely because he narrated it, with little regard to the author, who I'd never heard of before. I enjoyed the book, and will read others by Tim Weaver.

The book premise is a bit kooky, but in an interesting way, and though the ending wasn't shocking, it was very satisfying.

What about Peter Wickham’s performance did you like?

Pacing, linguistic style; he makes the character sound like a very likeable guy.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?


Any additional comments?

Worth the credit!
