When all has been lost what is there left to find?


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 life was left in ruins. His failure to find an elusive killer – or even a motive for such a merciless crime – consumed him, his career and his family.


Missing persons investigator David Raker is the only friend Healy has left. The only one who understands that redemption rests on solving these murders. 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 will take them down a trail of darkness, unravelling a thread of tragedy spanning years, and will force them to sacrifice everything they have left . . .


Tim Weaver is the bestselling author of Chasing the Dead, The Dead Tracks, Vanished, Richard and Judy Book Club selection Never Coming Back, which was also nominated for a National Book Award, and most recently Fall From Grace. All his novels feature missing persons investigator David Raker. A former journalist and magazine editor, he lives near Bath with his wife and daughter.


 A failed investigation is the heart of the story What Remains. On the 16th July 2010 Detective Inspector Colm Healy failed to find the killer that killed the 29 year-old mother Gail Clark and her eight-year old twin daughters Abigail and April. The family lived in Searle House a twenty-storey block of flats in New Cross, south London. Colm Healy’s life was left in ruins as he was haunted by the unsolved murders. Missing persons investigator David Raker and Colm Healy open up the case again together. Every reader can count on Tim Weaver to produce a Nail biting tension thriller.
