4.0 out of 5 stars Never Coming Back, 17 Dec. 2013
This review is from: Never Coming Back: David Raker Novel #4 (Paperback)
This is the fourth in the series involving David Raker, who has found himself searching out missing people. It's the first I have read, so I'm reading them out of order, but I don't feel I missed out on anything by doing so. I shall be going back to read the remainder of the series.

The story starts in 2007, when David Raker is in Las Vegas on assignment as a journalist. Quite by chance, he meets an old school friend who he hasn't seen for nearly twenty years. And the same evening, he's warned off by a man who isn't used to being questioned. In 2012, Colm Healy, retired from the Met police is finding a new life in the quiet of Devon. But that peace is about to be shattered when a local boy finds a dead body on the beach. And we learn that David Raker has found a new purpose in his life now. All this, and we're only up to page 40!

The narrative shifts from first person, as David Raker, to third person for other parties in the book. But the bulk of the story is from the perspective of David, as he searches for a missing family. The missing family is just the tip of the iceberg of what is out there waiting to be found, in a story that spans decades and continents. The action is fast-paced, the characters are clearly delineated, and some of the narrative is fairly brutal as these men are playing for keeps. But the story rattles along at a fair pace, and keeps the reader well entertained. Definitely recommended for a good thriller read.
