Summary

Penguin presents the audiobook edition of No One Home, written by Tim Weaver.   

On Halloween night, the residents of Black Gale gather for a dinner party. As the only nine people living there, they've become close friends as well as neighbours. They eat, drink and laugh. They play games and take photographs. Except those photographs will be the last record of any of them. By the next morning, the whole village has vanished. 

With no bodies, no evidence and no clues, the mystery of what happened at Black Gale remains unsolved two and a half years on. But then the families of the missing turn to investigator David Raker - and their obsession becomes his. What secrets were the neighbours keeping from their families - and from each other? Were they really everything they seemed to be? And is Raker looking for nine missing people - or nine dead bodies?

Good mix of storylines

Really enjoyed the story - the voice in the dark, the US police officer and Raker's investigation. Good twists at the end. Almost felt rushed at the end with a lot going on.

Not one of the best in the David Raker series.

I chose this novel on the basis of having enjoyed previous books in the series. On this occasion, however, I was disappointed and had to force myself to finish it. The story moved forward through a series of improbable events: nine people disappeared without trace, an American serial killer takes over the persona of a part time British diplomat without arousing suspicion, the nine missing victims are transported by air to an unnamed country thousands of miles away.

In addition to the storyline’s lack of credibility, I felt that there were far too many characters in the novel, some of whom seemed to play little part in events.

Yes - a disappointment on this occasion but not one which will stop me from reading future Tim Weaver stories.

Too much flowery description!

I found this book hard to listen to! I stuck with it in the hope it'd get better.
It didn't!
The male narrator gave the lead character the accent of a posh art critic(the female narrator was better) the pace of the book is
so slow that it took 11 minutes to have the character go into a house!
By halfway through i couldn't care less about any of the players in the story!

Dreadful

This was tedious and confusing with such a ridiculous ending although obvious as the key character came into the story. I don’t usually write reviews but this was so bad I feel honour bounded to warn any would be purchasers...don’t bother

No One Home - great read

Was gripped by this story from page 1 !! Author has a way of making you feel involved in the life of the main characters and all the paths leading to the conclusion. Loved the switch of the story tellers from Uk to USA dialects. Fiction at its best !

Incredible writing, superbly read

I don’t often listen to books, being really honest I meant to buy this book in paper format but pressed the wrong button in Amazon! How pleased I now am I hit the wrong button. I was engrossed and captivated from the beginning. Both readers were amazing and gripped me throughout. Whilst the writing is fantastic the readers really added the depth.

Brilliant book

This book was fantastic I started listening to it and couldn’t put it down. Going to sleep at night listening to it (often had to rewind a bit in the morning!) listening to it every chance I had during the day.

Impressive

One of the many reasons to keep going with this
complex story is the intrigue in trying to work out how the several threads will come together. The pace is fast and driven further by cliff hanging chapter endings. The narration is rushed at times and accents wobble a bit but none of this distracts. This author understands grief. At the centre of a violent, deranged set of events is a quiet story of the sadness of loss which is what will stay with me from this book.

Couldn’t even finish

I was so bored and confused by the flipping of stories of this book. I found it frustrating and just incredibly boring.
