FOUR MYSTERIES

It’s a night just like any other in the Conister home – but then Paul heads upstairs and never comes back.

When his wife Maggie goes to see where he is, she can’t find him.

His phone and wallet are by the bed. The windows are locked from the inside.

Paul has vanished.

FOUR STORIES

Missing persons investigator David Raker is an expert in locating the lost.

So when he’s hired by Maggie, he knows that in every disappearance – however impossible it seems – there’s an answer.

What he doesn’t know yet is that his search for Paul Conister will become linked to three other mysteries . . .

ONE CONNECTION

A night patrolman on the London Underground makes a deadly discovery.

A cold case is reopened – but the key witness appears to no longer exist.

And thousands of miles away, a random shooting may not be random at all.

In this unique, limited edition book, David Raker is key to unlocking the truth . . .

An evening with Jordan Wylie

Tuesday 12th November

7pm
Jordan Wylie is a former soldier, bestselling author, extreme adventurer and also one of the stars of Channel 4’s BAFTA nominated shows Hunted and Celebrity Hunted.

Growing up on the largest council estate in the UK, Jordan left school early with no qualifications to his name but took the life-changing decision to join the British Army at 16 years old. 

Jordan has since gone on to successfully complete numerous major charity expeditions, including the highly publicised Running Dangerously, which saw him run through Afghanistan, Iraq and Somalia, and Barefoot Warrior which involved climbing Mt Kilimanjaro, Africa’s highest mountain, completely barefoot! He has raised over a million pounds for charity and some of his expeditions have been made into documentaries on Sky TV.

A determined, fearless adventurer and an inspiring man
