I loved the first two books in the David Hunter series The Chemistry of Death and Written in Bone giving them both 45 stars although I felt the third Whispers of the Dead lost some of it's edge giving it 35This fourth one fell even further away The detailed forensic elements that made the first books so interesting were reduced to a couple of lines here and there and despite the action being centred around the moors the atmospheric ualities of the earlier books were also missing It became bland and generalised and nothing like a David Hunter tale; it could have been any old run of the mill crime storyI’m massively disappointed

A great way to start my 2012 readingIn this book we first get to see David Hunter in the days before his wife and daughter tragically died 8 years ago David was called in to help identify the body if a young girl who had been found buried in the peat on Dartmoor It is believed that she was one if the victims of convicted killer Jerome Monk Monk agrees to show them where the other bodies are buried and he is brought to the moors under heavy guard But just as Sophie the BIA on the case thinks she has found another shallow grave Monk makes a run for it Everyone is caught up in the chase to recapture Monk and in the melee that ensues the possible grave is left a preliminary dig suggests it's only the grave if a badger Monk is recaptured and the uest to find the other two victims is called off and for eight years the whole thing us mostly forgotten Then David gets a visit fro an old friend Terry Connors a DI on the original investigation he's called to let David know that Monk has escaped from prison and that he should be in his guard Not sure that there really us any kind of danger to himself he continues as normal Until he gets a phonecall from Sophie who says she has something to tell him So he finds himself returning to Dartmoor only to find Sophie has been attacked and enters into a nightmarish time as he is confronted by Monk and begins to uestion who exactly murdered the three young women that are buried in Dartmoor Full of suspense and lots of twists right to the end which is Beckett's way of keeping his readers on their toes Brilliant story telling and excellently written I can only hope there is another David Hunter book
