This is not Simon Beckett's first novel centered around forensic anthropology, but it is the first available on Audible. The plot--the search for a corpse believed to be a victim of an imprisoned serial killer--keeps twisting as little can be taken for the truth.

The readers performance does much to salvage this book. The plot however is overfilled with ridiculous contrivances and hackneyed plot devices. I spent too much time to tutting and rolling my eyes during this one.

Really enjoyed listening to this book. The amount of research Simon Beckett must of done for this book is tremendous, as well as his attention to detail. His main character David Hunter is a thoroughly nice man that you just warm to immediately. The storyline is gripping just when you think you know who the killer is everything turns upside down. Brilliantly written and thoroughly enjoyable.
The narrator, too is excellent and I cant praise this audio book highly enough.

Having read and enjoyed The Chemistry of Death I was confident that this would be a good book and it is. I was gripped from the start and enjoyed the scientific detail that adds credibility to the narrative. The story never flags and is full of exciting scenes and surprises. Not least the ending which I didn't see coming.
The reader does a splendid job of giving characters different voices and enhancing the listening experience.
