As you may know from reading past blog posts, I am an avid mystery reader. I am always thrilled when I find a new author to devour. A colleague suggested Simon Beckett's books and I'm hooked. Too bad there are only four in the series but I'm enjoying them nonetheless. This is the first book in the series where we meet David Hunter who has escaped from London to rural Norfolk to get away from the tragedy that almost did him in. When a corpse is found in the woods, he can no longer hide from his past and is dragged into solving a grisly crime spree.
