FAST BECOMING ONE OF MY FAVOURITE AUTHORS,
This review is from: Whispers of the Dead (Hardcover)
Wow! His 3rd book in the Dr David Hunter series and it's hard to imagine but Simon Beckett gets even better.
If you like Kathy Reichs, Patricia Cornwell or CSI then you will love this book. Normally set in England, this time Dr Hunter goes to the body farm in America and there gets involved in a mysterious case. This case is far from clear cut, it will have you guessing the whole way through and even when you think you know who did it, you will be surprised.
The characters are brilliant, and the tension between Americans and the British Doctor are really well written and researched. The science is also very fascinating. The plot grips you from the start, keeps you wondering what will happen next, and then races to the end.
I personally think this is a must read for all crime readers, and one I don't think will disappoint.
