Publisher's Summary

Seventeen-year-old Megan Carver was an unlikely runaway. A straight-A student from a happy home, she studied hard and rarely got into trouble. Six months on, she's never been found. When missing persons investigator David Raker is hired by Megan's parents to find out what happened, he recognizes their pain - but knows that the darkest secrets can be buried deep. And soon the conspiracy of silence leads Raker towards a forest on the edge of the city. A place with a horrifying history - which was once the hunting ground for a brutal, twisted serial killer.

A place known as the Dead Tracks...

    "Disappointing"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I am not sure! Would definitely recommend the first half of the book as it started off excellently- great plot and characterisation. However by the middle it got a little ridiculous and unbelievable.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    Kept to the pace of the first half of the book and built on the story and characterisation.


    What about Joe Coen’s performance did you like?

    Excellent narrator who really made this audio come alive for me.


    Was The Dead Tracks worth the listening time?

    The first half was!


    Any additional comments?

    I will definitely try another Tim Weaver .

    "excellent listen"

    Narrated brilliantly, no annoying voice changes and as with Tim Weavers books it was completely gripping, and believable. I'm a huge fan of David the main character there's so much potential for dark thrillers with his occupation and Weaver captures it brilliantly. Highly recommend.

    "More of the Same"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    If the story had been different from two of his other books. They are all too alike. I loved the first one I read, but got more disappointed by the next two.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Tim Weaver again?

    No.


    What about Joe Coen’s performance did you like?

    Very good.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointment and boredom.

    "Another great listen"

    A well told story, with a few twists and turns that were not expected! I thought I was at the end, but still 2 hours were left!!!! Kept me guessing until that final minute. Just wish I had read these in order as there are references to other cases.

    "An excellent story well narrated"

    This kept my attention from beginning to end. The narration was excellent and the story well paced and intriguing. Tim Weaver is one of my favourite authors and never disappoints.

    "Nearly there."
