Publisher's Summary

Forensic anthropologist Dr. David Hunter should be at home with the woman he loves. Instead, as a favour to a beleaguered police officer, he is heading to the remote Hebridean island of Runa. Hunter has witnessed death in many forms, but even he is shocked by what he finds: a body almost totally incinerated except for the feet and a single hand, untouched by fire. The local police are quick to record an accidental death, but Hunter's instincts say otherwise. Convinced that there's a killer on the island, he soon realizes that Runa is far from the peaceful community it seems.


What the Critics Say

"A truly gripping thriller...Becket keeps the reader guessing whodunit with a clever array of red herrings." (Evening Standard)

A little predictable at the end but still a good listen with good narration and story line

Pity about the End

I enjoyed the story and the description of a tough life on an isolated island, overdone in places but up until the end I was happy to go with it, but I hate unexpected cliff-hanger endings, on tv series-fine will wait until show returns, and if I know I am reading a book in series I will read them all, but this is not mentioned anywhere, not fair, so whatever happens I am not giving the author the satisfaction of selling me the sequel, don't care now, plenty of other great 'listens' to buy.
