Book Description

13 Feb 2014

Charlie Boxer messed up his family life. First the army, then the police, then high-stakes kidnap and recovery, his ex-wife and daughter learnt to live without him as his work took him places no man can come back from unscarred.

Trying to rebuild a relationship with Amy, his teenage daughter, hasn't been easy. But Charlie only realises just how wrong things have gone when he finds her empty room and a note: You will never find me.

Having spent years working to track down kidnap victims, Charlie knows that sometimes, the missing don't want to be found. And he knows the hell it brings for families - the vanished are neither dead or alive, but simply gone. Worse still, Charlie Boxer knows how quickly a life can fall apart once you're living under the radar.

For Charlie, danger has finally come to his front door and to crack the hardest case he's ever worked, it's time to face up to the true meaning of the sins of the father.

Product Description


[a] gripping thriller (THE SUN)

"The London kidnapping is typically well researched and replete with strong characters, it can't compete with the more visceral allure of Boxer's search in Madrid for Amy and revenge." (SUNDAY TIMES)

"Written with Wilson's trademark lucidity and style, this is as much a thrilling page-turner as a meditation on loss and what we would do for the ones we love." (Stav Sherez CATHOLIC HERALD)

"To call this a thriller is to cheapen Wilson's 'tour de force' about this small, dysfunctional group of people who keep each other at arm's length whilst drowning in their own isolation. I was totally consumed by 'You Will Never Find Me' and this level of writing can only be produced by a master of his craft. This is an astonishing and thought provoking novel of the highest order." (CRIMESQUAD)

Wilson is a master thriller writer and he proves it again with his new novel... If you haven't read Robert Wilson before the Charlie Boxer series is a great place to start. (BITETHEBOOK.COM)

"A story with hidden depths." (NORTHERN ECHO)

"A very high-class thriller, as readers expect from Wilson, performed by characters who develop and change realistically in response to events." (MORNING STAR)

Book Description

A daughter gone. A father hunting. Two lives at stake.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not the best he can do 31 Mar 2014
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Robert Wilson has an output so varied that he's yet to hit a distinctive winning streak. His early books were short and set in parts of Africa that were tumbling into capitalism and corruption, all of them short, brilliant, and a touch too witty to catch on widely. Much more meditative were those set in Seville, but none of the series equalled the very first, The Blind Man of Seville. He won awards for A Small Death in Lisbon, which drew on how Portugal's murky wartime past impacts on later times. Best of all, Company of Strangers had a wide historical span, a min-history of spying in Europe from Germany to Portugal from the late 30s to the last years of the c20th, working out how people's feelings change across cultures and across time.
This new novel is the second to be set mainly in London, and featuring a couple who solve kidnaps here suffering the loss of their own child. Despite some lively tours of Madrid night-clubs, it's set in a less edgy London than Capital Punishment, and it seems more turned in on itself than his other novels. Passages do light up from time to time, but then plod along. Interesting observations turn up on the margins, such as the cocaine-dealing hardware shops that have invested heavily in buying up Council Estates that are partly developed to house upmarket drug users, and partly kept affordable to crack heads. Observations that however remain peripheral to the plot.
The plotting is lively, and with plenty of surprises, but nothing memorable enough to linger on in the way of his Spain and Portugal books. This one keeps you going while you're reading it, mostly anyhow, but the neat ending left me flat and quite ready to forget it all

3.0 out of 5 stars Thick ear fiction 11 Jun 2014
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
The title is belied by the facility with which the runaway is located and that is the big let down in an otherwise robust and intriguing story though the misdirection at the beginning is very predictable. Not as good as the first one in this series and not a patch on this author's Spanish and West African books.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gripping to the End....... 14 May 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
What a fabulously written book i loved the style of the book & I couldn't put it down. I haven't read a book in 3 days since before I had children. I loaded this on my kindle app on my phone & have been reading it at every opportunity, between pick ups & drop offs and after school activities. I would highly recommend it.

See my review of "Capital Punishment". Same comments as for that book. Robert Wilson is an exciting and well researched writer and all his books for those who like thrillers are a must read.

3.0 out of 5 stars A Penetrating Thriller 13 Mar 2014
By markb
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Wilson's last thriller 'Capital Punishment' ended on a cliff hanger and this novel pushes the reader through what happened next. It is an envigorating, gripping, read. Wilson has a firm grasp of the plot and manages to keep the reader on edge throughout. The book is enhanced by the author's observations and thorough knowledge of the backstreets of East London. Charlie Boxer, the ex-army kidnap consultant at the heart of the action, is, deliberateley no doubt, not exactly a sympathetic character, but he has depth and a hinterland that helps to keep the book interesting, making it more than a 'catch me if you can' thriller.

The two Boxer books are not as sharply drawn, characterful and strongly plotted as Wilson's books set in Seville; and they do not reach the peak of his classic - 'A Small Death in Lisbon' (which is a 6-star read) - but they are a worthwhile investment for fans of gritty thrillers.
