Stranded, no hope of escape, wondering what has brought her to this moment, Rebekah struggles for survival on a remote island. Tim Weaver brings the sense of isolation, the terror, the bleak landscape to vivid, stark life with his brilliant writing and the entire read is edge of the seat fantastic. Thank you Netgalley, Penguin Michael Joseph UK and Tim Weaver for letting me ready an ARC of Missing Pieces in return for an honest review In New York, Detective Frank Travis is close to retirement, working on the case of the missing artist, Louise Mason, but is getting nowhere. What connects Louise with Rebekah? NEW CONNELLY AND REACHER: RESURRECTION WALK By Michael Connelly and THE SECRET By Lee and Andrew Child Rebekah is running, running for her life, she is hurt - she is desperate and other than that we don't really know what is going on, that is the opening chapter. We flip to the before and learn about Rebekah, her life and what takes her eventually to the Island, where she is now present day. The chapters flip between Rebekah trying to survive and then, the past as we run up to the present. Someone wants Rebekah dead, she is stranded on an Island alone and can't imagine why anyone would want to hurt her let alone kill her. Rebekah wasn't alone when she arrived so where is her brother and where is the person she is running from?

Author Tim Weaver is one of my favourite authors and I love the ‘David Raker’ series so have been looking forward to this one for some time. This book is a standalone novel that took me a while to get to grips with but certainly improved all the way to the very end. Well written and some excellent characters together with a gripping thought out plot.

The then lets us know Rebekah's current relationship, stressors, family life, the now is her trying to survive on a deserted island, harsh elements, loneliness. There are twists, timeline jumps, little nuggets *missing pieces* of information as you delve further into the story. I would like to thank Netgalley and Penguin Michael Joseph UK for an advance copy of Missing Pieces, a stand-alone thriller set, mostly on Crow Island off the coast of New York. Rebekah decides to join her older brother Johnny on a trip to the remote and uninhabited Crow Island, only to find themselves being hunted. She has no idea why anyone would want to kill them, and with Johnny missing, Rebekah struggles to cope. This is a bit of a slow burner as the story slowly unravels the complicated mystery that is told from the past and present viewpoints. Louise Mason, Johnny's ex girlfriend disappeared without a trace just before Johnny and "Bek' go to Crow Island. Johnny is the main suspect of her disappearance, so when they then both go missing detective Frank Travis is assigned to the case, but he is due to retire within the next week. He wants to solve the case before he retires and he knows that he is Louise’s only hope of being found alive or dead.I’m a big Tim Weaver fan and have been eager to dive into his first standalone novel for a while. Now that I’ve read it, I can say it was certainly worth the wait. I would not label this my favourite Tim Weaver read, but it is certainly well worth grabbing. this is not a pacy or grippy story, it's very long and dragged, hence not a thriller, just a mystery

However I feel that losing most of the story to the Island really damages the stars I want to give this. At the same time, veteran NYPD detective Frank Travis, during his last days before retirement, is trying to discover what happened to artist Louise Mason, who disappeared three months previously. Unbeknownst to both, Detective Travis and Rebekah each hold a missing piece of the same puzzle.Feeling she has not spent enough time with her aspiring writer brother, Johnny, Beks makes the fateful decision to join him on a trip to the remote and uninhabited Crow Island, only to find themselves targeted by killers. She has no idea why anyone would want to kill them, although she has more than enough time to ruminate over this mystery, as it looks as if Johnny has been murdered and she is left behind, injured and assumed to have died. Desperately missing her daughters, she is tested to her limits, trapped on this forested island during the freezing winter, alone with no hope of rescue for 6 months. In New York, the tenacious Detective Frank Travis is close to retirement, working on the case of the missing artist, Louise Mason, but has got nowhere. However, he has never let go of anyone, and he is to acquire 2 further strange missing person cases. What connects Louise with Beks?
