Overview

'At first glance it could have been anything - a stone, a knotted root - until you looked more closely. Thrusting out of the wet earth, its bones visible through rags of flesh, was a decomposing hand...'



Eight years ago they found the body buried on the moor. They were certain that it was one of Jerome Monk's teenage victims. Which left two more to find.



But the search ended badly and, with Monk safely behind bars, the momentum faltered. ...

Overview

'At first glance it could have been anything - a stone, a knotted root - until you looked more closely. Thrusting out of the wet earth, its bones visible through rags of flesh, was a decomposing hand...'



Eight years ago they found the body buried on the moor. They were certain that it was one of Jerome Monk's teenage victims. Which left two more to find.



But the search ended badly and, with Monk safely behind bars, the momentum faltered. For forensics expert David Hunter and the rest of the recovery team, life moved on. And the dead were left undisturbed.



But now a nightmare scenario unfurls. Monk has escaped and seems to be targeting anyone involved in that original ill-fated operation.



As the maniac's violent trail edges ever closer, Hunter realises that nothing now - or then - is quite what it seems. And that the past is anything but dead and buried...

    283 pages

    This book is 283 pages long, perfectly edited and extremely engrossing. While it is an across the pond novel, there in none of the confusing slang or a difference in grammer to cause confusion. Some words are spelled a bit different, but this does not make a difference in the story. There is no sex, cursing, religion, romance or homosexuals. There is violence and murder. The plot was great and I really liked the hero. He was not a PI! I even liked Monk. There was murder and violence, neither of which was very graphic. There was blood and bruising, a few bang em ups and punch em outs, hidden graves and lots of action. The female lead was a very unlikable person. She was mean, manlipative and sarcastic. I figured out whodunit about a third of the through, but could not figure out why until near the conclusion, and a very good conclusion it was. I did not have any trouble down loading this book from B&N at all. I really enjoyed this book. It was perfection in ereader format. I intend to read more of this author. Do not expect chick lit with this book. It is an action packed, adventure, murder mystery. Mystery lovers, both hens and roosters will enjoy this book. For readers, ages 16 and up.

    At a Loss to know...

    Would love to write a review of this book, for which I have waited a long time, but this is the second book from Barnes and Noble in the last month that had originally been published in England a year previously, that I have ordered and then 2 days later am informed that it is "unavailable" and the order cancelled. Why can't the new Equity Group who now owns the company get books from my favorite English authors? Very disappointed.

    I enjoyed this book very much. Easy to read and get a picture of the characters. The story was good, believable, and interesting up to ...and including...the end.

    I would LOVE LOVE LOVE to read this book....I've been waiting si

    I would LOVE LOVE LOVE to read this book....I've been waiting since it first came out and have read every other one in the series and love them all. I tried ordering it once online but was told a few days later that it was "unavailable" and my order had been cancelled. Have tried in store but no one can seem to tell me anything other than they don't have it. ...why list a book on your website at let people order it if you can't get it/don't have it!
