The Restless Dead


'Atmospheric . . . a tense, gripping read' Sunday Times

It's not the dead we need to fear. . .

Top forensics expert Dr David Hunter is facing an uncertain future - his career hangs in the balance and his personal life has taken a turn for the worse. So when he gets a call from Essex police, it comes at the perfect time.

A badly decomposed body has been found in the mudflats and salt marshes of the Backwaters. Could it be linked to two unsolved missing-person cases?

But as these desolate wetlands begin to give up their grisly secrets, more remains are discovered.

With its eerie, claustrophobic sense of place, authentic forensics and explosive, heart-in-mouth moments, The Restless Dead is a masterclass in crime fiction.
