9780593063477: The Restless Dead: (David Hunter 5)

‘Composed of over sixty per cent water itself, a human body isn’t naturally buoyant. It will float only for as long as there is air in its lungs, before gradually sinking to the bottom as the air seeps out. If the water is very cold or deep, it will remain there, undergoing a slow, dark dissolution that can take years. But if the water is warm enough for bacteria to feed and multiply, then it will continue to decompose. Gases will build up in the intestines, increasing the body’s buoyancy until it floats again.
And the dead will literally rise . . . ‘

Once one of the country’s most respected forensics experts, Dr David Hunter is facing an uncertain professional – and personal – future. So when he gets a call from Essex police, he’s eager for the chance to assist them.

A badly decomposed body has been found in a desolate area of tidal mudflats and saltmarsh called the Backwaters. Under pressure to close the case, the police want Hunter to help with the recovery and identification.

It’s thought the remains are those of Leo Villiers, the son of a prominent businessman who vanished weeks ago. To complicate matters, it was rumoured that Villiers was having an affair with a local woman. And she too is missing.

But Hunter has his doubts about the identity. He knows the condition of the unrecognizable body could hide a multitude of sins. Then more remains are discovered – and these remote wetlands begin to give up their secrets . . .

With its eerie, claustrophobic sense of place, viscerally authentic detail and explosive heart-in-mouth moments, The Restless Dead offers a masterclass in crime fiction and marks the stunning return of one of the genre’s best.

About the Author:

Simon Beckett is the author of The Chemistry of Deathand Written in Bone. He lives in England, where he is at work on his next thriller featuring Dr. David Hunter.

Review:

"Beckett is one of the country's best crime writers... His books are intelligent, beautifully written and utterly gripping." * SUNDAY EXPRESS * "Atmospheric . . . a tense, gripping read." * SUNDAY TIMES * "Disturbing, tense, and entertaining . . . Simon Beckett is a literate and dexterous novelist. The Restless Dead is a luxuriously dark and compelling read. It's also highly addictive." * CRIMESQUAD * "I always enjoy books with a strong sense of place and The Restless Dead has that in bucket-loads. Simon Beckett makes excellent use of the creeks and tides of a desolate but strangely beautiful area of coast . . . the plot is clever and well-constructed. The forensic detail of how corpses react to prolonged exposure to water is as gruesome as it is fascinating and will no doubt go down well with anyone who - like me - enjoys reading anything by Kathy Reichs. An author who knows their stuff and can put it over without resorting to info dumps is always to be treasured." * CRIME REVIEW *
