    The Dead Tracks is the second book in the amazing David Raker series. This book is a quite important book if you’re looking to read the whole series as it introduces a number of characters who make reappearances throughout the series, giving you information to their backstory along with showing you how they came to interact with David. Whilst I would not say it is necessary to have read the prior books in this series – you can read them as standalone books if you want to – I really would recommend working your way through the books as there is an interesting continuous story throughout.The Dead Tracks starts off slower than I would have liked, but once the ball gets rolling it is nonstop action throughout as David uncovers the many different layers to his most recent case. Whilst it is not quite as good as the first book, in my opinion, it does contain the many good twists necessary to keep an individual gripped throughout as David tries to find out the truth behind the missing teenage girl he has been hired to find.Whilst not my favourite in the series it was still a good read and I would most certainly recommend the David Raker novels to others.

    Huddled together in a corner of Bristol Library the other evening, sat a cluster of fifty enthusiastic book lovers. Not the biggest of audiences by any stretch of the imagination. Perched on bar stalls, staring back was the top selling crime writer Michael Robotham. The support act for the evening (his words) was the Bath based author Tim Weaver – yep I’d not heard of him either.I soon heard how Michael Robotham's psychological thrillers have been translated into twenty-two languages and published in more than 50 countries.Yet I found Tim Weaver’s own story the most fascinating and inspiring. While holding down a fulltime job, and coping with the daily stresses of bringing up a young baby and paying the bills. Tim battled for nearly ten years to fulfil his dream of writing and getting a book published. Eventually in 2010, Penguin published his first crime novel called ‘Chasing the Dead’. Tim has recently had his second book ‘The Dead Tracks’ published, and is now working on his third. The Dead Tracks, is an easy to read, fast moving, gripping thriller. I gulped the 560 pages down in less than a week; from the first chapter I was hooked. The main character is a missing persons investigator, who has recently lost his wife to cancer. The excellent descriptive prose, the sharp dialogue and clever twisting plot, gives the impression Tim has been crafting his skill over many decades like Michael Robotham. If Tim Weaver was a start-up company looking for finance, and I was an Investment Angel, I’d have got my cheque book out instantly. The Dead Tracks is the best crime novel I’ve read for a long time.

    Another awesome read. Tim Weaver is one to watch when it comes to hard, gritty thrillers.As much as I dislike reading violence, I can't put these books down. They're brutal and shocking and even as I clench my fists and curl my toes and tense every muscle as I read I can't stop turning the pages. My heart races as I read faster and faster and there's always a twist somewhere in there that shocks me more than anything.You very slowly learn more about David Raker while you read these books. I'd definitely suggest reading them in order to get the full bearing of this character. Raker's life itself is a pretty harrowing story. His losses, what's driven him to finding missing persons, it's all another addictive thread to these stories which reveal another side of the character.

    Oh how I love David Raker! He's so smooth, got the answer to everything, he's like James Bond, only better! You may be able to tell that Tim weaver's brilliant character feels very real to me. I absolutely adore him and if I were 20 years younger, (and about 14 stones lighter), I know he'd love me too! As is my unintentional custom, I have listened to these in entirely the wrong order. This in no way detracts from the sheer pleasure of the story; another intricately woven plot that is so clever it is off the scale. I have no idea what narrator Joe Coen looks like, but his voice is perfect as David Raker, and I am praying to all my gods that he remains the narrator throughout the series. It really seems unfair that the maximum award I can give Tim Weaver is 5 stars, because if ever there was a 10 star listen, this is it. Absolutely perfect in every way. You simply must listen to The Dead Tracks. You can thank me later!

    Seguendo TRACCE DI MORTETim Weaver è un autore di thriller, ricchi di colpi di scena e suspense, il quale sin dal primo libro, TRACCE DI MORTE, ha provocato in me una sorta di dipendenza. Il merito va attribuito al personaggio, alla trama, all’intreccio, alle componenti del giallo, ecc. Avendolo letto nella traduzione italiana, forse un po’ del merito, per l’alto gradimento riscontrato, va attribuito anche al traduttore, che ha reso questo tsunami di emozioni e azione. È uno di quei romanzi che fra un po’ di anni si ha la voglia di rileggere e che si è fieri di sfoggiare nella propria libreria. È un autore che, per me, si è rivelato un’autentica scoperta. Le sue storie non hanno punti morti. L’indagine non annoia mai, anche quando sembra che non ci sia niente che possa accadere, giunge un elemento destabilizzante e si ricomincia daccapo. Lo stesso protagonista, David Raker, è costantemente in pericolo; è l’ex giornalista d’assalto che ora risolve misteri di scomparse inestricabili; è l’uomo, con un passato doloroso, che ancora incombe, ma è sempre un passo avanti agli altri, con un piede nel precipizio del pericolo e nell’universo della follia. Di David Raker viene detto: “Ti manca quel meccanismo che avverte le persone quando il troppo è troppo. Non sai quando fermarti. Continui a tappare buchi in giro per il mondo solo perché sai cosa si prova a perdere una persona, e non vuoi che nessun altro debba sopportarlo. Lo stai facendo per LEI. Il caso dell’anno scorso era per LEI. E anche questo. Stai riempiendo il vuoto che si è lasciata dietro accollandoti le sofferenze degli altri. Io non posso competere con questo.”È questo lato umano del nostro eroe che lo rende più interessante, affascinante ai nostri occhi e nel quale ci si affianca e ci si “immedesima”.In TRACCE DI MORTE il lettore si ritrova, per la seconda volta, accanto al complesso protagonista di David Raker, convinto di conoscerne ogni aspetto psicologico, ma predisposto a scoprirne qualcosa di nuovo. Il lettore si trova a seguire i suoi passi nella nuova indagine relativa alla misteriosa scomparsa di una studentessa modello. Come ogni sparizione, anche quella di Megan Carver, è avvolta in un alone di mistero, ma nasconde più malvagità e follia di quelle che si riescano ad immaginare e sta al lettore scoprirlo, leggendone ogni pagina, mentre la narrazione lo coinvolge, con il suo ritmo serrato, avvincente, denso di colpi di scena e, allo stesso tempo, profondamente psicologico.Un romanzo che gli amanti del genere thriller non potranno non apprezzare. http://youtu.be/OA_6x5FYeUU

    So, having loved “Chasing the Dead” the first in the David Raker series from Tim Weaver I started in on The Dead Tracks with a great sense of anticipation. I wasnt even anywhere near that place called disappointed. Weaver is actually an excellent surname for this particular author – he weaves an intricate and twisted tale that swallows you up until it finally spits you out satisfied and wanting more.In this instalment, David is asked to track down a young girl called Megan..the police enquiry into her disappearance has stalled and her parents are desperate. As he investigates he is drawn into a dark place and finds himself involved with a historical serial killer, a police cover up and more missing girls – and finally he finds himself heading for the dead tracks…..David Raker really is a superb creation. Suffering after the loss of his wife, he is bound and determined that no-one should go through that and it drives him determinedly on towards his goal despite personal danger and heartache. The story itself is terrific – it flows beautifully with such page turning influence that you will find yourself reading into the early hours simply to discover the next clue…3AM today found me finishing this tale, bleary eyed but happy. Chasing the Dead had a wonderful solution – The Dead Tracks manages to pull this off again but in a very different way. I wasnt so much stunned by the ending as I was intrigued by one of the main characters and their psychology..I kind of hope we might find out more about them in future novels but I have a feeling that particular story is done.Tim Weaver is fast heading up the list of my favourite must read authors – I am lucky enough to still have “Vanished” on my kindle, sadly sadly it will have to wait a little while due to my backlog although my backlog may well get more backlogged if I find I can’t wait…. and later this year “Never Coming Back” which is now very high on my list of priorities. You can find a review of “Chasing the Dead” in the Crime page of my website and I highly recommend you start there and don’t stop. Happy Reading folks!

    The Dead Tracks is the follow up to Weaver's debut novel Chasing The Dead. Featuring David Raker, private detective and widow, The Dead Tracks is a superb sequel. Raker is an excellent creation, the right amount of pathos and humility throughout, he is fast becoming one of my favourite lead characters in crime fiction.Again, similar to other novels I've reviewed recently, there are elements of the horror genre to be found within the story. The woods central to the story, are expertly written and create a suspenseful, dark edge to the mystery.The first two-thirds rattle along at a good pace, but it's the last third of this novel which elevate it to excellent heights. The build up and subsequent pay-off, is a fantastic example of a writer on top form. And something which is not always evident in this genre. With so many facets to the story, it would of been easy to slip up when it came to wrapping things up. Weaver however, skilfully ends the novel with an unforgettable conclusion.Sharp, shocking and not short (alliteration...that's what you come here for) The Dead Tracks is a contender for one of the best crime reads of 2011. I'm excited to see what comes next for Raker and if Weaver can keep up the increasingly high standard he's set.

    Oh My, Oh My! His first book, Chasing the Dead was good but this is stupendous. Really tough crime thriller featuring David Raker, a missing persons investigator. This time he's on the trail of a young girl who's gone missing but what a web he finds himself entangled in. It really is a page-turner, a nail biting what comes next thriller! Just can't wait for his next book!

    This is an excellent series. Beware, this is crime at its most violent and horrible. It is on the level of the Chelsea Cain series featuring Gretchen Lowell and Archie Sheridan. The writing, setting, characters....all are superb. My opinion, anyone who likes this genre should put this author on their "to read" list!

    Phew!! Well, I often say it but this really is a right ol' heart-pounder- fantastic, loved every bit of it :o)The style reminded me of Stephen Leather's Jack Nightingale series, simple language no-nonsense tale-telling & a gripping story with very gruesome undertones....as the cover says "Fans of Mo Hayder will be in seventh hell"!

    This was another great story in this series but unlike the first one, this one has a lot more errors so cost him the 5* review. He still persists in using American spellings the whole way through as well. Apart from the word arse. He spelt that correctly.I hope Megan's parents paid David well for the job of trying to locate her as she was no simple find !! He really went through it again. It's time he had an easier case, I reckon ! It's also time he learnt some manners. There's nary a please or thankyou with this guy...I was surprised Megan wrote so much down for a youngster as opposed to keeping her life in her smartphone of choice. I know this was penned in 2011, but it wasn't THAT long ago, I thought. I did wonder how many more ways the author planned to describe the rain coming down as well !! I didn't like reading about the dog plus not knowing what became of him. That bothered me and I was a little baffled that David visited The Dead Tracks from a differing direction the second time....it made his journey needlessly more difficult and I had no idea why he went in that way....He mentions years 11 and 12 parking their cars at school but I thought year 11s were 16 year olds so they'd not have licences, let alone cars. Though perhaps I've got that wrong. When I was at school we were 1st, 2nd, 3rd years, etc...Pausedon needed a space and where he wrote 'fingerprints lifts' it either needed an apostrophe, I believe, or better still write lifted ! He lost the odd comma, apostrophe and word (like the) from sentences. However, the biggest ouch from me was when he used illicit as opposed to elicit !!Perhaps he used a differing proofreader or editor for this story and I hope he reverts to using whoever did book one for the next one !

    3.5 starsThe second in the series of David Raker. David, once a journalist, now getting hired to find lost people, becomes involved in a police case when he is asked to find a missing girl.The police are not happy to have David rooting around in their business, especially when it may impact on an Organized Crime case.Horrific serial killer takes young women and does unspeakable experiments on them, all for his own twisted reasons. The police are obstructive but despite them, David manages to come up with leads.There are moralistic themes in this novel: is it ok to do bad things for the overall good of society? Who has the right to make those decisions?One stupid part of the book comes at the end: why would they take that last trip at night? Just asking for trouble.

    David Raker serisi oldukça sevdiğim, hatta ara verince özlediğim bir seri. İlk kita Paravan'ı okuyup beğenmiştim ama ikinci kitabı daha da muhteşem. David Raker eşini kanserden kaybetmiş eski bir gazeteci. Kaybından dolayı mesleğini bırakıyor ve kayıpları bulmaya başlıyor. Megan ise 6 ay önce kaybolmuş, polisin bulamadığı bir kız. Ee aile David'e başvurunca David Raker iş başına düşüyor. Tim Weaver'ın en sevdiğim özelliği, okuyucuyu sıkmıyor, sayfalar akıyor ve merak unsuru ön planda.Aklınızda soru kalmayacak şekilde ayrıntısıyla çözüyor olayı. 👏👏 Eğer gizem, macera, cinayet kitabı istiyorsanız, ee zorlanmayayım akıcı olsun ama şaşırayım sonunda diyorsanız, Ölüm Patikası size göre kesinlikle okuyun derim. 5/5

    kurgusuna olay örgüsüne bayıldım. Biraz tess geritsen'in kitaplarında daki atmosfere benziyor tıbbi gerilim olarak yakın bir hava var kitap'da. Tıbbi terimler olsada sizi boğacak, kitap'dan uzaklaştıracak kadar ağır deyil anlaşılır bir dili var. #davidraker karakteri bence çok iyi kurgulanmış ben gerçekten uzak karakterleri pek sevmem ama david raker tam dozunda olmuş inanılmaz bir zekaya olağan üstü bir beceriye sahip deyil sadece olayları okuya bilen iyi analiz yapan bir karakter. Bu kitap'daki polisler beni sinir etti. Bu kadar vurdum duymaz ilgisiz bir polis topluluğu görmedim. Tam kitap artık bitti dedim ama öyle olmadı bu beni gerçekten mutlu etti son sayfaları çok heyecanlıydı.

    Amazing book, definitely recommend reading this!!!!! If you are not into gory things, this book is not for you. This author deserves more attention and popularity, his writing is like Mo Hayder but a bit simpler. At the same time, he puts his own twist by using captivating vocabulary. *This is a scary book that involves murder and violence*

    I can see that this is a good, well-written thriller but it is way too violent for me - and yet again a book brutalising women. It is full of twists and clues and dead-ends but the gruesome nature of the plot repelled me and I wouldn't recommend it. Too harrowing for my tastes. I'll try Weaver's third book in this series and hope for a less brutal storyline.

    Superb! I found this totally gripping. I read the last 100 pages or so in one sitting. The development of the main character is particularly good and even the psycho-serial killer is more than just a stock villain. I look forward to reading the rest of the series. Highly recommended.

    This review contains will spoil book one for those yet to read...Wow. I read the first David Raker book, Chasing the Dead, only a few days ago and upon finishing it immediately started this, book two. After finishing it I can safely say that out of nearly 170 books read in 2013, this is one of my favourites. Tim Weaver is a fantastic writer and one hell of a storyteller. Much like Simon Kernick, the books pick up the pace very quickly and do not let up until the final page. In fact I'd say that this book and Chasing the Dead were better than any Kernick book I've read so far and I LOVE Kernick's books. I felt like in book one that Raker was flawed. I thought this because he is portrayed as a man who had a good job as a journalist travelling around the world with his wife, he then became a missing persons investigator which became his sole focus after her death. Then, in Chasing the Dead he kills - albeit to survive - and it felt to me that Weaver was using tactics that other authors may use, eg. having characters kill and/or act out of character simply to enhance the story and make it more of a 'shocking' read but I felt in this book Raker's explanation for killing justified it for me and helped me find his character more believable and relatable than I did in the first book. Also in this book Raker finds himself on the run from the police so I think his character is always going to find himself in some sort of trouble!The cases he is given start out quite simple but after a few chapters the action starts and you will find it hard to stop reading. At 87% on Kindle it felt like the book could've finished there but it went on for another 20 or so minutes which a few more shocks before the end of the book. The length of the book however didn't feel too long like some authors have a habit of doing and every page, every word was used to its full advantage. You can already see the change in Raker from the first book and I can't wait to see where Weaver is going to take him next. This book like book one takes place over a time period of less than two weeks and everything that goes on in that time is so action packed you feel like your head is going to explode. Overall yet another fantastic read from Tim Weaver who is fast becoming one if my favourite authors in this genre.

    Tim Weaver is, to put it simply, an amazing author! The Dead Tracks is one of those books that you just don't want to put down and I'd give it a rating of 4.5 rather than 4 stars. The story moves fast, is written with beautiful clarity and leaves no loose ends hanging. The twists, turns and surprises keep coming and leave you guessing at the end of almost every chapter. The book goes from normal to creepy (in a thrilling way) without wasting time on niceties. You get into the story from the first page and it holds on to you till the very last.David Raker is a great protagonist and Weaver has created a character that is incredibly well thought out and gripping. The other characters that appear are unique in their own way, each defined by their quirks and drive which lead you to love them or hate them, and sometimes, both. You get an insight into their emotions and thoughts, brought to the forefront with a brilliant play of words by Weaver.The story is not an outright horror. But Weaver's writing gives you chills as he describes scenarios in great detail. Each sentence adds to the creepy thrill that fills you as you read. Every word seems to be placed perfectly, giving the perfect effect at the perfect time. The Dead Tracks is not devoid of violence or graphic scenes. But they're all done in a manner that is chilling rather than gross. And they all add to the feeling that you need to look over your shoulder because something may be watching you.I have, for some time now, been in search for a really good crime thriller author. And I can safely say that Tim Weaver, now on my list of favorite authors, is the answer. The Dead Tracks is the second book with David Raker and one of four books that are based around the missing persons investigator. If you like James Patterson's older work such as Pop Goes the Weasel and Along Came a Spider, you'll like Tim Weaver. He's got a gripping style similar to Patterson's without the sometimes unnecessarily hyped violence. Perfect for anyone who loves crime thrillers, mysteries and serial killer stories, The Dead Tracks is an unputdownable book that you don't want to miss.

    The Dead Tracks is Tim Weaver's second book of the David Raker missung person's investigator series and just like his debut, it doesn't disappoint. Raker is once again enlisted by a family whose teenage daughter has gone missing. Using some unorthodox and sometimes illegal investigative techniques allows Raker to follow some seemingly random but ultimately connected leads to an unsolved case involving Milton Sykes who allegedly and notoriously murdered 13 girls a century before. It's remarkable how Raker is able to find these leads despite the police having a dedicated task force searching for the same missing girl. Then there are more missing girls, a paranoid Russian criminal and his personal plastic surgeon, and a dead police officer. But how are all these characters connected?Weaver once again creates a thrilling roller coaster ride with many scary unexpected twists. The book does not disappoint on gory details and there are some parts in the book where the reader fears for Raker's life. Weaver skilfully and effortlessly gets Raker out of some very sticky situations. This book is a highly recommended, edge of your seat, thrilling read and at 99p on Amazon's Kindle Daily Deal was an absolute steal. Next up: Tim Weaver's Vanished.

    For a crime story, 'The Dead Tracks' was an easy read. The descriptions of what the victims endure are good enough to paint a picture of how much pain and suffering they've experienced while simultaneously not being too off-putting. The book starts off slow-paced but it begins to pick up later on leading to a satisfying ending. The lead character David Raker is likeable as he's serious, dedicated and patient. Some of the police's actions were pretty dumb but that didn't detract from my enjoyment of reading this. The only possible issue I had was that I simply couldn't visualize David Raker since he wasn't physically described at all. However, that isn't an important aspect of a crime book to me. Plus, I haven't read the first book yet, in which he might have been described.Overall, 'The Dead Tracks' was a fun read which definitely felt a lot shorter than its actual number of pages.

    Slijepi kolosijekLeo-commerce, 2015.David Raker se prepustio istraživačkom poslu i ovoga puta traži nestalu tinejdžericu. I opet, put ga vodi u razne pogibeljne situacije, mnoge susrete s veoma nenaklonom policijom, ali se opisuje i poboljšanje u njegovom privatnom životu. Nenadano i usporedo prihvati zadatak istrage sumnjive smrti policajca, što se na kraju potpuno ispreplete s istragom nestale tinejdžerice. I opet Weaver uvodi neke zastrašujuće likove, ljude opsjednute stravičnim ubojstvima, što nije nešto što se meni osobno sviđa čitati, jer ponekad zna biti i veoma brutalan, ali jednostavno ovakav roman se ne da ispustiti iz ruke, ma koliko zastrašujuć bio. Opet su tu neki bešumni stravični ubojice, on je opet (pre)hrabar i smjeo, ali ne odustaje, što je dobro, jer samo tako dođe do odgovora koje traži.

    Ho iniziato questo libro intrigata dalla trama. Il motivo delle 3 stelline sta nell'aver portato avanti la lettura in modo frammentato e averla terminata a distanza di mesi dall'inizio (maledetti esami universitari!). Stando così le cose, ho perso un po' il ritmo (tragedia quando si legge un thriller!!!!) e non mi sono goduta pienamente i colpi di scena e l'atmosfera angosciante che pervade la storia. Diciamo che il personaggio di David è affascinante, è un detective a cui affiderei senza ombra di dubbio un caso! Ispira fiducia perché oltre alla figura professionale si intravede spesso, nel corso della narrazione, l'umanità che lo contraddistingue. Leggerò sicuramente anche il precedente libro di Tim Weaver, avendo scoperto solo ora l'esistenza di una precedente indagine di Raker :)
