Two disappearances. Two families. One secret. Missing persons investigator David Raker returns to crack a cold case wide open.

‘Impossible to read without breaking into a sweat’ The Times
‘Unsettling, brilliantly plotted, and satisfyingly complex, these books are unputdownable. If you haven’t yet met Raker, you’re in for a treat’ Mick Herron

‘Grips like a vice and twists like a rollercoaster. Impossibly clever. Impossible to put down’ Chris Whitaker



On the night Tom Brenner and his nine-year-old son Leo visit the Seven Peaks theme park, they head straight for the ghost house.

They go in. But they don’t come out.

Somewhere inside the ride, impossible as it seems, the two of them simply vanish.


When Rebekah Murphy was three, her mother walked out of their childhood home and never returned.

Nearly four decades on, Fiona Murphy is still missing.

But then, out of the blue, a letter arrives in the post.

It says it’s from Fiona.


Missing persons investigator David Raker is hired by Rebekah to find out if the letter is actually from her mother – and soon makes a connection to the Brenners.

But these are mysteries whose secrets were never meant to be found.

And with his closest ally under arrest and about to reveal some truths of his own, the danger to Raker is coming from all sides…

Publisher Review

Corkscrew twists. Impossible to read without breaking into a sweat * THE TIMES * The master of the clever, unpredictable plots is back with his best book yet! I’m a huge fan of the David Raker series and The Last Goodbye floored me with its perfectly executed twists and tense, original premise. With one of the most sinister fictional villains I’ve come across this had me on the edge of my seat. Superb! — CLAIRE DOUGLAS Grips like a vice and twists like a rollercoaster. Impossibly clever. Impossible to put down. The Raker series never disappoints — CHRIS WHITAKER Tim Weaver is a master of the crime genre. His David Raker novels, including the latest instalment, The Last Goodbye, stand out from the rest. You’ll be addicted from the hook at the outset, gripped by the intricate plotting and whiplash-inducing twists but what will keep you riveted to the final page is their intelligent, unflinching examination of the darker side of humanity and the damage it can cause us all. I couldn’t look away. — GILLY MACMILLAN Haunting, gripping, fast paced and complex, The Last Goodbye is a thriller with heart. I finished it with a huge sense of gratitude that it is a series and that it will not be the last I will be meeting the brilliant, driven, astute yet beautifully flawed David Raker. — FEMI KAYODE Twisting Harlan Coben style mystery about ancient family secrets * THE SUN * Praise for Tim Weaver * – * Terrific * Sunday Times * The impressive Weaver triumphs again with this intricate mystery * Daily Mail * Thrilling * Richard & Judy Book Club * Packed with twists * Daily Express *
