My rating: 5 of 5 stars
This book is really not for the fainthearted, its tough and gritty with hard to digest details about the torture that humans can inflict upon other poor souls. Vanished is the story of how Sam Wren vanishes without a trace after boarding a Tube train to work. 3rd book in the David Raker series which I’m beginning in the middle like always but it didn’t spoil the thriller in any way except for maybe the background info about the past case where Healy, the detective from MET is also involved. The ending gave me an electrifying jolt and if I hadn’t seen other books in the series I would have been very disappointed. When you read such hard to digest books, I always wish for some positive hopeful ending if not, the negativity can affect me badly. The ending was perfect for this book but somehow the imagination just left me feeling hollow. Love to continue this series!
For millions of Londoners, the morning of 16 December is just like any other. But not for Sam Wren. An hour after leaving home, he gets on a Tube train – and never gets off again. No witnesses. No trace of him on security cameras. Six months later, he’s still missing.
Out of options and desperate for answers, Sam’s wife Julia hires David Raker to track him down. Raker has made a career out of finding the lost. He knows how they think. And in missing person cases, the only certainty is that everyone has something to hide.
But in this case the secrets go deeper than anyone imagined.
For, as Raker starts to suspect that even the police are lying to him, someone is watching. Someone who knows what happened on the Tube that day. And with Raker in his sights, he’ll do anything to keep Sam’s secrets to himself.
