Three years ago, David Hunter moved to rural Norfolk to escape his
life in London, his gritty work in forensics, and a tragedy that
nearly destroyed him. Working as a simple country doctor, seeing
his lost wife and daughter only in his dreams, David struggles to
remain uninvolved when the corpse of a woman is found in the woods,
a macabre sign from her killer decorating her body. In one
horrifying instant, the quiet summer countryside that had been
David's refuge has turned malevolent--and suddenly there is no
place to hide.
The village of Manham is tight-knit, far from the beaten path. As a
newcomer, Dr. Hunter is immediately a suspect. Once an expert in
analyzing human remains, he reluctantly joins the police
investigation--and when another woman disappears, it soon becomes
personal. Because this time she is someone David knows, someone who
has managed to penetrate the icy barrier around his heart. With a
killer's bizarre and twisted methods screaming out to him, with a
brooding countryside beset with suspicion, David can feel the
darkness gathering around him. For as the clock ticks down on a
young woman's life, David must follow a macabre trail of clues--all
the way to its final, horrifying conclusion.
