Police analyst Annabel wouldn’t describe herself as lonely. Her work keeps her busy and the needs of her ageing mother and her cat are more than enough to fill her time when she’s on her own. But Annabel is shocked when she discovers her neighbour’s decomposing body in the house next door, and appalled to think that no one, including herself, noticed her absence.
Back at work she sets out to investigate, despite her police officer colleagues’ lack of interest, and finds data showing that such cases are frighteningly common in her own home town.
"Ready for a chilling thriller which will send shivers down your spine? Dare to pick up Human Remains by this award-winning author, and you may find you can't put it down... With believable characters and plot, this story tugs at our deepest fears and shows a side to society we'd all rather believe doesn't exist.
It's only Haynes' third novel, but the way she gets to the heart of the darkest of minds and crafts a compelling story which gets under your skin puts her up there with the very best. Not for the squeamish, but a must for anyone who loves a gripping read." - Peterborough Telegraph
