Good, fast-paced reading. Read in under a day.

Gloom, foreboding, impending doom ... this novel's lead character is atmosphere, literally (a bludgeoning storm of interminable duration) and figuratively (fear, mistrust, isolation, helplessness). The unmasking of the actual culprit(s) devolves into secondary importance. The plot pivots upon survival. For readers addicted to formulaic whodunits, this book is problematic. It's constructed outside the expected character/plot box. However, the occasional unexpected literary detour can be rewarding.

A murder investigation that becomes something more. The book went on much too long.

This was my second of Simon Beckett's books featuring forensic anthropologist David Hunter. I didn't end up finishing it. Unfortunately the writing and storyline were just not exciting enough for my taste.
