Human Remains is a chilling, masterful thriller by New York Times bestselling author Elizabeth Haynes that explores our darkest fears, showing how vulnerable we are--and how easily ordinary lives can fall apart when no one is watching.

Annabel, a police analyst, is shocked when she discovers her neighbor's decomposing body in the house next door. And she's appalled to think that no one noticed her absence.

Back at work, she sets out on her own to investigate, and finds that such cases are frighteningly common in her hometown.

A hymn to all the lonely and compelling characters that haunt our lives, Human Remains is a deeply disturbing and powerful novel of suspense from Elizabeth Haynes, author of Into the Darkest Corner.

An interesting and chilling look at what happens when people die alone. How long does it take for that person to be discovered and why did they get to that point? Was it from natural causes or something else? A disturbing thriller about various accounts of people dying alone and why, and one person's interest in helping them get to that point.

Gruesome descriptions, uninteresting characters, slow moving story. I like Elizabeth Haynes, but this book was a waste of time.

I really enjoyed the author's first 2 books but found this one a very difficult read. While the premise about knowing our neighbours etc was interesting I found the villain very disturbing and the whole thing very creepy. A big disappointment.
