Review: What Remains, Tim Weaver

What Remains opening line: Eight-year-old twin girls and their 29-year-old mother have been found dead in what police are calling ‘an unforgivable and callous attack’.

What Remains

Colm Healy used to be one of the Met’s best detectives. Until, haunted by the unsolved murders of a mother and her twin daughters, his failure to find an elusive killer left his life in ruins.

Missing persons investigator David Raker is the only friend Healy has left. As they reopen the investigation together, Raker learns the hard way how this case breeds obsession – and how an unsolvable puzzle can break even the best detective.

Their search takes them down a trail of darkness, unravelling a thread of tragedy, and forces them to sacrifice everything they have left.

My Blurb:

One man’s desire to keep his past well hidden results in three families being destroyed. David Raker can’t help but get involved in solving the murder referred to in the opening line. But it nearly kills him. It is friendship that draws him into the case. And the same friendship that nearly leads to the end of his life. 

My verdict:

I really enjoyed this book but it would have been nice to have a bit of the back story refreshed as it is not the first novel in the David Raker series. It is however the first novel written by Tim Weaver that I have read.
