New York Times best-selling author Elizabeth Haynes returns with a disturbing and powerful tale that preys on our darkest fears.
Police analyst Annabel wouldn't describe herself as lonely. Her work and the needs of her aging mother keep her busy. But Annabel is shocked when she discovers her neighbor's decomposing body in the house next door, and she is appalled to think that no one, including herself, noticed the woman's absence. Annabel sets out to investigate, despite her colleagues' lack of interest, and discovers that such cases are frighteningly common in her hometown.
A chilling thriller and a hymn to all the lonely people whose individual voices haunt its pages, Human Remains shows how vulnerable we are when we live alone, and how easily ordinary lives can fall apart when no one is watching.

On of the best! The suspense kept me listening for hours! Only had the audio version.
Annabell and her determination
The tone brought depth to the story.
Elizabeth Raynes creates an intriguing story surrounding about how easy it is to withdraw from society and how vulnerable that makes us. Narrator did a good job creating a distinction between the two main storytellers.
I think the narrator was one problem with this book and the story line was so so , I don't think I would recommend this book .
Yes absolutely! I was in such a hurry to get to the end that I would want to listen again in case I missed any details.
This was a one of a kind for me, I haven't come across anything quite like it. I don't want to give anything away, but wow things I have never thought of before and I watch a lot of crime stories on TV and listen to a lot of crime/mystery stories. I really enjoyed the originality!
Sincere emotions and personality.
It made me gasp in shock and cover my mouth once I realized what was going on. And I might have yelled at the main character a few times...
Confusing, no chapter numbers, character and storyline all over the place and get not get my interest. I will be more aware in the future. What a disappointment after listening to a great book, "Remember Me This Way." That one was the best!
After reading Into the Darkest Corner, I really wanted to read more from Elizabeth Haynes. While this story was interesting and explored a section of the population often ignored in media - single women older than their 20s,there just didn't seem to be much character development or much suspense. Where Into the Darkest Corner had my heart pounding in my throat, I was not very moved by this story. Annabelle was likable, but her story as the lonely spinster was too predictable and she never really seemed to develop the confidence you'd expect. It was a story with significant potential but ultimately flaccid performance. The narrator was superb.
Loved having the perspective of both the victims & the psychopath. The characters were well fleshed out and the book moved at a good clip. It was edgy and different. The narrator was great as well. It's not often that I give a book 5 stars across the board, but this one deserved it. Would absolutely recommend it to anyone who enjoys this genre.
