    DescriptionFinding refuge in a quiet rural backwater, Dr David Hunter hoped he might at last have put the past behind him. But then they found what was left of Sally Palmer...It isn't just that she was a friend that disturbs him. Once he'd been a high-profile forensic anthropologist and all too familiar with the many faces of death, before tragedy made him abandon this previous life. Now, the police want his help. But to become involved will stir up memories he's long tried to forget. Then a second woman disappears, plunging the close-knit community into a maelstrom of fear and paranoia. And no one, not even Hunter, is exempt from suspicion. Gruesome and gripping, this startling new British crime thriller has an unnerving and original twist.

    Review quote
    "The best thriller I've read all year... fast-paced, fascinating and heart-stoppingly exciting" -- TESS GERRITSEN "Spine-tinglingly frightening... it hits the bull's eye from the word go" INDEPENDENT ON SUNDAY "Fresh and original... perfectly captures the claustrophobic horror of a rural community in crisis... absolutely compelling - and deliciously scary" -- MO HAYDER "Excellent... plotted and written with panache, with high marks for characterisation and shock value... an absorbing, scary tale" -- MARCEL BERLINS THE TIMES "The same rich vein of fatty tissue dissected by Patricia Cornwell... but Beckett does it well; he is a fine writer with a good grip of both the architacture and mechanics of the thriller... a classy debut" THE TIMES
