Journal Entry 1 by Chuggypig from York, North Yorkshire United Kingdom on Sunday, August 20, 2017

5 out of 10

"One year ago, Alex Towne's body was found.
One month ago, his mother saw him on the street.
One week ago, David Raker agreed to look for him.
Now he wishes he hadn't.

Mary Towne's son, Alex, went missing six years ago. Five years later he finally turned up - as a corpse in a car wreck. Missing persons investigator David Raker doesn't want the work: it's clearly a sad but hopeless case of mistaken identity brought to him by a woman unable to let go of her son. But haunted by a loss of his own, Raker reluctantly agrees.

Big mistake.

For as he digs deeper, he discovers that Alex's life was not the innocent one his mother believed. Buried in his past are secrets that were never meant to be found - and dark, dangerous men willing to kill to protect them.

Soon Raker will discover that there are things far worse than death . . ."

Now, I normally love a mystery, but I really wasn't keen on this - it was far too gory and horrific for me.

This book has reminded me why I don't really like crime thrillers written by men. There is far too much violence, some of it inflicted on women, the "hero" sustains a number of catastrophic injuries yet still manages to run about, and the author appears to have a gun fetish. The only female character who really features is already dead before the action starts. Silly and unpleasant in equal measure.
