No One Home #BookReview #NetGalley

Written by Tim Weaver


150 hrt


Nine neighbours gathered on Halloween.

But by the next morning, they had disappeared without a trace.

No bodies, no evidence, and no clues.


Two and a half years later, it remains a mystery.

Desperate for answers, the families of the missing turn to investigator David Raker.

How did an entire village vanish overnight? 

And is he looking for nine missing people, or nine dead bodies?


No One Home is Book 10 in the David Raker series








Sheer Brilliance!!  Stars 5


Sensational! I knew I was in for a treat when I had the latest Tim Weaver novel on my tbr, but never in my wildest dreams could I have predicted such a magnificent, all-consuming read!

Nine people don’t just disappear into thin air. There must be a plausible explanation, but after two and a half years that’s exactly what seems to have happened. Enter David Raker, an expert in finding missing persons. Despite digging deep, there is no evidence as to what happened, so Raker does what he does best – and keeps digging.

Ever since reading book four for Book Club, I have enjoyed this series – quite possibly like no other. Each novel is an entirely new story; there is no ‘formula’ – every book is a fresh and new mystery but with this one I feel the author has excelled himself. What a read! Having reached the final page, I felt quite awe-struck at the sheer brilliance of the plot. Quite possibly one of the best planned thrillers I have ever come across, with carefully structured writing to keep the reader absolutely mesmerised and mystified from first word til last. A highly original and exquisite novel which I cannot recommend highly enough, and one I’m thrilled and excited to give a full five shining, sparkling stars and – trust me – it’s easily worth twice that!

My grateful thanks to publisher Michael Joseph at Penguin for approving my copy via NetGalley. This is my honest, original and unbiased review.

Meet the Author




Hello! I’m Tim Weaver. I’m the author of ten novels, all of which feature missing persons investigator David Raker. Hopefully, you might have heard of some of them –– or, even better, read them and enjoyed them. They have, over time, been selected for the Richard and Judy Book Club, shortlisted for a National Book Award, and been nominated for both the Crime Writers’ Association Dagger in the Library and Ian Fleming Steel Dagger awards. Oh, and –– thanks to the amazing support of readers like you –– they’ve also been Sunday Times Top 5 bestsellers and reached number one on Kindle, iBooks and Audible. Away from writing, I live in Bath, home to overpriced real estate and genteel Georgian terraces, and I’m lucky enough to write full-time, allowing me to build my day around the things I do best: staring out of the window, and making endless cups of tea.
