The Rapture

by Elliott Hall
Release date: 2011
Type: speculative fiction
Genres: science fiction, thriller

Isaac Taylor isn't missing. According to government records, he never existed. PI Felix Strange isn't convinced, not least because Isaac is an old army buddy. The man saved his life in Tehran, so the least Strange can do is dig up some leads. Strange soon discovers Isaac isn't the only one missing. All over the country, young and old, men and women, the good and the trying-to-be, are disappearing - quite literally without a trace. If Strange doesn't figure out what's happening fast, someone close to him will fall into a patch of thin air.

A dark and compelling thriller, The Rapture is a brilliantly realised depiction of a society all too chillingly close to our own. The second in the Strange trilogy, it pays homage to the genius of Dashiell Hammett, Raymond Chandler and James Ellroy, while offering a wholly original take on the noir genre.
