Good story but so many holes in the plot.

This book is a good read as long as you don't mind sloppy continuity and glaring errors.
We are told David Raker lives in a two bedroom bungalow, yet when his daughter comes to stay he works on the case in the spare room while she is showering and changing for dinner. Where was she sleeping if the spare room is his office?
Next he goes to a pub to meet a man and identifies him by his shiny head completely free of any hair. During the meeting the man 'runs his fingers through his hair'. What sort or beer makes hair grow that quickly.
When he comes home to find his house ransacked he clearly describes the front door lock as smashed. After chasing the intruder through the back way he returns home and enters the door which is now 'still locked'.
Come on Tim Weaver, if you think up a good plot at least remember what you wrote a few pages back to make it credible!
