The Remnant Keeper (Tombs Rising, #1) by Robert Scott-Norton

When the dead can testify, their killers resort to desperate measures.
The Remnant Keepers are a loathed group of telepaths, paid to read the last memories of the recently murdered. Jack Winston is one of the best and hates it. Under the scrutiny of the world's most powerful corporation, Jack is as much a prisoner as those he helps send behind bars.
But when his latest case arrives, Jack's world shatters as his wife is brutally murdered. Fuelled by vengeance, Jack vows to catch the murderer, but as the bodies pile up, Jack realises he's made a terrible mistake; he was never the hunter, only the hunted.

The Remnant Keeper is the first book of the Tombs Rising series—thrilling science-fiction novels that you won't be able to put down. Buy The Remnant Keeper and join Jack in his fight for vengeance.

About the Author

Robert Scott-Norton writes high-octane sci-fi thrillers and is the creator of The Tombs Legacy, a universe of fiction.

A lifelong fan of Stephen King and Doctor Who, it was perhaps inevitable that his work would sit somewhere between horror and sci-fi.

Robert’s books all take place in this same story universe – The Tombs Legacy. His debut sci-fi novel, The Face Stealer, is the first book in a series and sets up this fictional universe. A second series, set in the future, looks at Southport one hundred years from now as repercussions from The Face Stealer start to be felt.

Raised in Southport, he’s lived there most of his life and has concluded that this ordinary seaside town is the perfect setting for all the horrors he can throw at it.

I really enjoyed this story. Set in the near future, people still like good coffee, have families, friends, jobs, financial needs and are affected by crime. It's a mystery where some people are themselves crime solving tools. I found the characters interesting and liked the pace of the story. I am looking forward to the next book.

Injoyed reading this book. Have always been interested in the idea of being able to read minds. I was saddened by his loss of his wife and ex-girlfriend, along with so many others. I can't wait to read the next book in the series.

I picked up this ebook for free at BN. I was intrigued by the concept. A little futuristic scifi, telepathic investigations... Sounded like an interesting story. However, I was gravely disappointed. The basic gist of the story is that Jack Winston is a "remnant keeper". In some futuristic earth setting, he is a telepath who has been surgically altered to accept the eye of a recently deceased person. The idea is that he can see the last few hours, it seems, of the persons life including their death. So he can then help solve their murder if that is how they died. Intriguing. The execution of the story falls very very short. The character development is sketchy at best. The dialogue and writing style is clumsy and burdensome. Reading this book was kind of like streaming a movie that has the dialogue dubbed over and it is constantly buffering. I cannot in good conscience recommend this book and will avoid the subsequent books.

This book has a bit of a unique touch with a futuristic, syfy aspect. The storyline flowed well and maintained my interest throughout. I have some unanswered questions which leave me looking forward to reading the remaining books in the series.

I enjoyed very much! This isn't written in American English so I'm not sure if that accounts for the syntax & punctuation issues or not--looking forward to the next one
