Publisher's Summary

Penguin presents the unabridged downloadable audiobook edition of I Am Missing by Tim Weaver. Read by Joe Coen and Louise Brealey, and featuring the author himself.

When a young man wakes up bruised, beaten and with no memory of who he is or where he came from, the press immediately dub him 'The Lost Man'. Ten months later Richard Kite - if that is even his real name - remains as desperate as ever. Despite appeals and the efforts of the police, no one knows this man.

Kite's last hope may be private investigator David Raker - a seasoned locator of missing people. But Raker has more questions than answers. Who is Richard Kite? Why does no one know him? And what links him to the body of a woman found beside a London railway line two years ago?

I Am Missing is the outstanding new novel from Sunday Times best-selling author Tim Weaver.

What the Critics Say

"Tim Weaver writes books so meticulously researched that the reader is educated as well as entertained, enthralled and intrigued. David Raker is a most complex and engaging investigator, each case leaving its mark on his soul, and ours." (Liz Nugent, Sunday Times best-selling author of Lying In Wait)

"Tim Weaver is the rising star of British crime and I Am Missing will haunt your dreams." (Tony Parsons, Sunday Times number one best-selling author of the DC Max Wolfe series)

    "Not the best Tin Weaver book I have read."

    Having read a number of excellent books by this author, I was a little disappointed by this one. The plot was too implausible for the reader to be drawn into it and the convoluted series of events seemed to drag on for far too long. It was hard to accept that the headmaster of a top public school would in fact be a mass murderer or that the disappearance of a number of Argentinian women would have gone almost unnoticed. One also had to wonder how Raker would be reimbursed for all his efforts and particularly his travelling expenses, which must have been enormous.
    There were, however, redeeming features in this novel. The descriptions of the island, its weather and its landscape, were highly effective in building up the brooding atmosphere at the centre of the novel.
    To sum up, I found the novel too long and too complicated but I do not think this will put me off reading more of Mr. Weaver' s stories in the future.

    "Impossibily Silly"
    Any additional comments?

    Whenever I finish a Tim Weaver book, I think never again. Then I go and buy another and wonder why I did that. What a ridiculous storyline. Could the author stuff anything else into an already over stuffed plot which is so unbelievable you have to laugh? Amensia, deception, murder, embezelling, drugs, lonely islands, cruise ships, interogation, monsters.... step sisters, prostitutes... , sinister comings and goings, and all solved by the intrepid David Raker who seems to have bottomless pockets and can trip around the world solving mysteries no other person can solve. Yawn. All narrated in a grey dreary voice to match the whole humourless story. I lost count how many times I had to keep going back to previous chapters as I found my mind had wandered away from the storyline or the fact I didnt even particularly care. 13 hours listening to a book touted as a best seller, tense thriller, a page turner... Definitely the last time for me.

    "I am missing"

    I was gripped by the suspense early on but two thirds into the story I thought it was being excessively drawn out. A concentration on too much unnecessary detail irritated me. I wanted the story to notch up a gear.

    "Disappointing"
    If this book wasn’t for you, who do you think might enjoy it more?

    not sure


    What will your next listen be?

    Girl Zero


    Who might you have cast as narrator instead of the narrators?

    Sian Thomas


    You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    good concept


    Any additional comments?

    Having read some of the authors previous efforts, I was quite looking forward to reading this as the concept appealed to me.
    However, at one point, I thought that something had gone awry with the download, and that I was listening to an extract from a completely different novel.
    I was around three quarters of the way through, when I finally admitted to myself that the whole thing was absolutely implausible.
    There is, I am certain a very good story regarding someone who has completely lost their memory after an accident. Unfortunately this wasn't it.

    "Another Raker thrill ride!"

    An unusual twist in this one - Raker isn't searching for a missing person as he has in the previous books, but a missing identity. A man with no past, apparently, leads Raker from an unidentified female corpse having carnations anonymously delivered around her place of execution, to an exclusive and sinister school protecting its secrets a little too well, and then to a far flung island with deep seated secrets of its own to protect, with monsters and plenty more murders along the way. Great page turner, well paced, well read, huge fun to listen to (spot the authors voice!) and frankly, sad it has come to an end.
