When a young man wakes up bruised and beaten, with no memory of who he is or where he came from, the press immediately dub him ‘The Lost Man’.
Naming himself Richard Kite, he spends the next ten months desperately trying to find out who he is. But despite media appeals and the efforts of the police, no one knows him.
Richard’s last hope may be private investigator David Raker – a seasoned locator of missing people. But Raker has more questions than answers.
Who is Richard Kite?
Why does no one know him?
And what links him to the body of a woman found beside a London railway line two years ago?
Could Richard be responsible for her death – or is he next?
WHO is The Lost Man??
Richard Kite is effectively missing. When waking up in a bad way outside a lifeboat station, he finds he is suffering from ‘Dissociative Amnesia’, He doesn’t know who he really is, whether he has a family and nothing about his life.
He enlists David Raker to find these facts out for him and what happens is something that Raker couldn’t ever have imagined.
I Am Missing is brilliantly written, I was kept on the edge of my seat and became deeply engrossed.
Full of twists..some of which that were lost on me.. this is a very involving read. There is more than enough story to keep you guessing.
I loved the plot of ‘finding’ a missing person, you would think it would be relatively easy, especially how Richards plight was front page news, you would think someone would come forward and ‘claim’ him. But what this book does is rather cleverly feed you tidbits of Richards past then brings it together in quite an Oh My Gosh ending.
I loved it. It has everything I love in a book ..suspense, intrigue, mystery and grit.
I would think book clubs would like it as it has quite a lot to discuss, especially concerning family and mental health.
