'At first glance it could have been anything - a stone, a knotted root - until you looked more closely. Thrusting out of the wet earth, its bones visible through rags of flesh, was a decomposing hand...'It was eight years ago that they found the body buried on the moor. They were certain that this was one of psychotic rapist and multiple murderer Jerome Monk's teenage victims. Which left just two more bodies to find? But the ill-conceived search ended badly. And with Monk safely behind bars, the momentum faltered. For forensics expert David Hunter, and those others who were part of the recovery team, life moved on. And the dead were left undisturbed.

Now, though, a nightmare scenario unfurls. Monk has escaped and seems to be targeting anyone involved in that original ill-fated operation. Lured back to the moors by a desperate call for help, Hunter begins to realise that neither the events unfolding now - nor those of eight years ago - are quite what they seem. And as the maniac's violent trail edges ever closer, the past is suddenly anything but dead and buried...

    " I wasn't moved by this book, but it managed to keep my attention long enough to listen my way through it in audio form. It was written in a bit of a stuffy old english style which didn't help. "

    " A first for me in the series but it most certainly will not be my last. "

    " A good read from this talented writer but not as good as the previous books.I thought that Dr Hunter being written as less astute and professional in his job was a stretch. He had been portrayed in the previous books as a sharp academic with which little passed his notice. Partnered with the ability to sense a bad situation before it happened garnered respect and interest from the reader. This latest novel of his exploits reduces Dr. Hunter to a low that I hope won't be repeated. "

    " An okay read. Nearly ditched it halfway because the characters were just so unlikeable! Not half as good as the earlier David Hunter books I've read. "
