Overview

On the surface, James Sawday's life couldn't be any better. Writing investigative pieces for a glossy men's magazine, he gets to travel the world. And when he gets home, there's Lucy: smart, funny, seems to love him. She could even be the one.

But when James's editor sends him to the seaside town of Grancombe, to cover a murder - the third attack by a serial killer who specialises in chopping off his victims' hands - James finds himself sucked back down into a world he's tried all his adult life to forget.

Ten years before, during a hazy, drug-fuelled summer, James was one of a group of teenagers who stumbled on the mutilated corpse of local artist Jack Dawes. And then the second killing happened - the one that still gives James nightmares.

Now James has got to dig up everything he's worked so hard to bury. And what he's going to find out could cost him his sanity. And even his life.

I thought I'd enjoy this book a lot more than I did. The main character, James, started to get on my nerves. The plot fluctuated between the summer James lived with his uncle to so many years later when he had to revisit his uncle's hometown to write an article about the death of a friend from that past for a men's magazine he worked for. James ran with a bad crowd during that summer visit and even though he disapproved of that lifestyle he kept falling into it. I wanted him to grow up faster! I really didn't like the end....seemed to end with loose ends tied up just because the the book should have been over. I'll still try to read the next book..I like the character of Rees's first novel better!
