Als seine Frau unvermutet stirbt, ist Ben am Boden zerstrt. Allein Jacob, Sarahs autistischer Sohn, spendet ihm Trost.
Katz und Maus
Doch whrend Ben die gemeinsame Wohnung aufrumt, macht er eine ungeheuerliche Entdeckung: Jacob war gar nicht Sarahs leibliches Kind. Offenbar hatte sie den Jungen entfhrt, als der noch ein Baby war. Fassungslos informiert Ben die Behrden, die Jacobs leiblichen Vater schnell ermitteln. Keiner ahnt, dass damit eine Lawine tdlicher Obsessionen ins Rollen gebracht wird. Simon Beckett ist einer der erfolgreichsten Autoren der Gegenwart.
Allein in Deutschland verkauften sich seine Bcher millionenfach. Mein Feuer wird dich verbrennen. Aber ihr sehnlichster Wunsch blieb bisher unerfllt: Ein anonymer Spender kommt fr Kate nicht in Frage. Also gibt sie eine Annonce auf, um einen geeigneten Vater zu finden. Alex Turner scheint der perfekte Kandidat. Aber das uere eines Menschen kann ein gefhrliches Trugbild sein - manchmal sogar ein lebensgefhrliches.
When the bizarrely mutilated and long-dead body of a young woman is found in a ditch in Manham, an isolated and insular village in the Norfolk marshlands, it isn't just the fact that she had been a friend that disturbs Dr David Hunter. He was once a high-profile forensic anthropologist and all too familiar with the different faces of death, until a devastating personal tragedy made him turn his back on his former life and career. Now hidden away as a country doctor, Hunter's past is a secret he hopes will remain buried.
So when he's asked by the police to use his arcane skills to help track down the killer, he's reluctant to become involved, knowing this will only stir up the painful memories he's been trying so hard to forget. Then another young woman disappears, and Manham is plunged into a fog of fear and paranoia that threatens to tear it apart. And no one seems exempt from suspicion as the twisted killings continue. And as the once peaceful community is riven by fear and mistrust, David Hunter realises it will take all his knowledge and expertise if the killer is to be stopped.
But not even he is prepared for the terrible cost that will exact - or the awful price that failure threatens to bring Becoming a member of the LoveReading community is free.

Please don't laugh. DNF because of maggots. I really wanted to add a maggot gif, but then I thought: Fuck no. Cats are safer See, I have a problem with maggots - and every fucking thing hovering around a dead body - I won't jump crying if I see one , but plural?
I can't deal with this shit.
Flies, larvae, chrysalis. Welcome to my nightmare. No matter how good and compelling the writing is. No matter how daunting and oppressive the atmosphere is. None o Today I found my limit. None of these exceptional qualities matter. Because maggots and flies. Bluebottles and greenbottles. With the open wounds on the body we can expect insects to have been attracted straight away. They'll have started laying eggs within an hour if it was daylight. I held it out on my palm.
The older they are the darker they get. By the look of this I'd say it was seven or eight days old. I can't see any husk fragments lying about, which mean no pupae have hatched yet. Now, if you don't mind that kind of descriptions, I'm sure you'll find an incredible book here. Just not for me. For more of my reviews, please visit: View all 32 comments.
This book kept me guessing until the very end, it was simply amazing! I instantly fell in love with the main character, he was charismatic and realistic the whole way through. All the side characters were lovable in their own ways, too. Every one of them had a purpose and added to the story. The writing style was extremely easy and relaxing to read. It was very suspenseful without being over the top.
One of my new favorites and a definite recommendation! View all 8 comments. Beckett actually understands how to craft a decent English sentence. Unfortunately, two faults bog it down and keep it from being a star in the genre. First, no one has ever taught Beckett to murder his darlings, and no editor, whose job it would have been to have done so, evidently stepped in to fill the gap.
That means that overwritten and purple passages crop up when you least expect them and are even more jarring because the rest of the writing is so clean.
He's already got his hero copying Scarpetta's least proud moments with comments about how his job is to "make the dead tell their stories. There's also the heavy-handed heavy like a-teaspoonful-of-Pluto's-soil-weighs-a-squllion-tons-on-earth heavy device of the protagonist's dreams, which are trite and soap-operaish and could have been cut without the slightest damage to the novel.
Basically, dreams are a cheap, amateurish trick for revealing motivation or character; they can only mean one thing exactly what the author tells you they mean and, as such, they're a "cheat. There's foreshadowing and then there's beating the reader over the head with the inkstand.
Second, the "reveal" of this serial-killer mystery is such a hack job that it rather spoils what had been a great story up until then. It's literally one of those denouements in which, just as the hero finally confronts the killer in a life-or-death moment, the two of them stop and chat for 15 pages while the bad guy tediously explains why he did what he did and what everything meant and how he kept his crimes hidden and blah blah blah, revealing in this case a psychological motivation so superficial that you can feel Beckett grasping at straws to find an explanation that's halfway credible.
And not quite getting there. That's a major problem: Beckett's the writer, he gets to choose which character to turn into a killer, and it's his job to make the reader believe it.
Obviously, in every similar novel there's necessarily a moment in which the writer tells the reader whodunit, but Beckett wrote this ending with a rake. It's a shame, too, because the pacing of the book, which is rather leisurely at times, is betrayed by this paint-by-numbers ending. All in all, a good effort and an enjoyable read with several irritating flaws.
