David Raker Missing Persons Synopsis: Chasing the Dead is the first book in the David Raker series by Tim Weaver. One year ago, Alex Towne’s body was found. One month ago, his mother saw him on the street. One week ago, David Raker agreed to look for him. He quickly grew to regret this. Mary Towne’s son, Alex, went missing six years ago. Five years later he finally turned up – as a corpse in a car wreck. Missing persons investigator David Raker doesn’t want the work: it’s clearly a sad but hopeless case of mistaken identity brought to him by a woman unable to let go of her son. But haunted by a loss of his own, Raker reluctantly agrees. That was a mistake. For the more he digs, he discovers that Alex’s life was not the innocent one his mother had thought. Buried in his past are secrets that were never meant to be found – and there are those willing to kill to protect them. Soon Raker will discover that there are outcomes much worse than death…
