My rating: 3 of 5 stars
This is the fourth in a series by Simon Beckett featuring a central character called David Hunter. He is a forensic anthropologist and a GP. The case concerns a series of murders that are all attributed to one man who has been jailed. The story spans several years and David Hunter has endured personal tragedy along the way.
The story isn’t a police procedural as such but does sit close to a police investigation with what seems number of recurring characters. I haven’t read the previous novels in the series but I don’t think that this is necessary to enjoy the book. I did enjoy the read as there are some nice diversions in the plot line.
