"The plot swirls the reader back and forth like tendrils of moor mist caught in a breeze.."
Eight years ago, a buried body was discovered on Dartmoor. Police were certain that the body belonged to a victim of the rapist and psychotic serial killer Jerome Monk. There were still 2 victim's bodies to be found and an ill-conceived search ended badly. Life moved on for forensic anthropologist David Hunter and the rest of the team as momentum waned and the bodies were left unfound.
Fast-forward to the present day and Monk has escaped from prison and appears to be targeting anyone connected with the ill-fated search operation. Lured back to the moors by a cry for help, Hunter realises that things are not what they seem now, and they weren't eight years ago either.
As Monk's violent spree moves ever closer to him, the past is suddenly anything but dead and buried...
