Grisly, nasty and I love it

March 15, 2008

Written in Bone, by Simon Beckett (Random House, $36.99):

Now here’s a book that really kept me guessing until the very last page and beyond.

Yes, it had the type of cliffhanger ending that means I’ll be queuing up to buy the next installment when it comes out.

The story is about forensic anthropologist David Hunter, who should be heading home to London to be with the woman he loves. However, he ends up
diverting to a remote Hebridean island to do a favour for a police officer friend.

There, the grisly discovery of an almost totally incinerated body sets in motion a series of events that has Dr Hunter regretting his offer to help. He soon realises there’s a killer on the loose and that the burned corpse is just the beginning.

    Hello there, I believe your website may very well be getting browser compatibility concerns. When I seem at your internet site in Safari, it seems to be good but when opening in World wide web Explorer, it’s some overlapping. I just desired to provide you with a fast heads up! Other then that, great website!
