A best seller in the UK, this gripping thriller of a family that vanishes into thin air is Tim Weaver's American debut.
Emily Kane arrives at her sister Carrie's house to find the front door unlocked, dinner on the table, and the family nowhere to be found - Carrie, her husband, and two daughters have disappeared. When the police turn up no leads, Emily turns to her former boyfriend David Raker, a missing-persons investigator, to track the family down. As Raker pursues the case, he discovers evidence of a sinister cover-up, decades in the making and with a long trail of bodies behind it.
Tim Weaver's thrillers have been hugely popular in the UK, and now Never Coming Back will introduce his beloved character David Raker to American audiences. Set in Las Vegas and a small fishing village in England, the novel is a smart, fast-paced thriller sure to keep listeners guessing until the very end.

I really thought that I would like this book.
The narrator's voice. I thought I could get past that if the story was a good one. I was willing to overlook that if the plot could keep it together. I don't know if it was the way it was read or if it was the way the story was laid out but I just could not listen past chapter 11.
I'm not really sure as this is a story that takes place in the UK and I don't believe an American narrator could do the book justice.
I'm not an editor so I can't say. I lost interest in the whole book. I have read the synopsis for all 5 of his books and I thought I might enjoy each of them based on the story line. I think it has something to do with the way the story is told. Other people may like this book.
