Human Remains | [Elizabeth Haynes]

Human Remains

Highly intelligent but socially inept, Colin spends his free time collecting academic qualifications and searching for ways to meet women, until he stumbles upon a new technique that proves both potent and deadly. Police analyst Annabel is shocked when she discovers a decomposing body in the house next door and realises that no one, including herself, noticed her neighbour's absence. At work she finds data showing that such cases are frighteningly common in her own town and sets out to investigate, convinced she is on trail of a killer.

What the Critics Say

"It's hard to put the uniqueness of Elizabeth Haynes' writing into words. Her stories grip you by the throat and force you to acknowledge that this is what real crime and real horror look and feel like, as well as real love, hope, fear. Suddenly, much of the other crime fiction you've read seems, in comparison, rather like stories made up by writers. Haynes is the most exciting thing to happen to crime fiction in a long time." (Sophie Hannah)

    "Gruesome!"

    Obviously the title should have given me a clue but the description and the sample did not prepare me for how gruesome and difficult to listen to this book was going to be. I think the voices did not help either, with all the men sounding the same as the sexual deviant sociopath that was it's main subject.
    I felt tainted listening to every part where he was the subject but the story was gripping and the other characters made it good listening, so I continued to the end.
    It is a good story, just not to be read when you are unable to sleep at night...it won't help your insomnia!!

    "Not for me !"

    I have just spent hours listening to this book in the hope that it may get better as the book progressed... how wrong was I... The narration was slow & I found it very tedious, with numerous voices all more or less sounding the same. The actual story in my opinion was a waste of money & has put me off listsening to any more books by this author..

    "Fantastic"

    This was gripping from the opening chapter, loved the different perspectives given in order to enhance the story. Made the long drive to and from work a pleasure during the dreary winter months. An author I hadn't read before but will most certainly read/hear again. So glad I took a chance from the blurb.

    "This was gripping"

    I really enjoyed this book it keeps you engaged and has a satisfying climax. First you meet the characters and understand the mundane life of the heroine but soon the weird villain comes into view the excitement rises. This is a teaser which switches from the minds of each key player in turn, delving into their psche, their beliefs, doubts and fears. I could not stop listening!

    "Was this a thriller??"

    Strange in that for the most part this well read book misleads us into thinking that it is a pleasant enough story until Colin appears with his strange lanuage, I decided several times not to continue but persevered to the end. The story is a bit unbeleivable, good reserach though. Not sure I'll read another one by Haynes.

    "Creepy Colin"

    This is the name the schoolkids gave the baddy in this book, when he was younger, it's pretty apt. People keep getting discovered dead and rotting in their own homes, but there is no connection. The victims vary in age, ethnicity and gender and the death rate is rising. Can the police work out what is going on?

    "slow and boring"

    I found it very slow and far too repetitive. I worked out the plot quite quickly and found the graphic details were repeated over and over which got in the way of the plot and killed the suspense. Not my cup of tea. Come back Morse.
