    Six years ago Alex Town went missing. One year ago his 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.

    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.

    Disappointing

Six months later, he's still missing. Out of options and desperate for answers, Sam's wife, Julia, hires missing-persons investigator David Raker to track him down. In missing-person cases, the only certainty is that everyone has something to hide....

Missing persons investigator David Raker is the only friend Healy has left. The only one who understands that redemption rests on solving these murders.

    Enjoyable listen

    I wasn't as involved somehow in this story but it was enjoyable non the less. Twists and turns more than you initially think it will.
