Forensic anthropologist Dr. David Hunter should be at home with the woman he loves. Instead, as a favour to a beleaguered police officer, he is heading to the remote Hebridean island of Runa. Hunter has witnessed death in many forms, but even he is shocked by what he finds: a body almost totally incinerated except for the feet and a single hand, untouched by fire. The local police are quick to record an accidental death, but Hunter's instincts say otherwise. Convinced that there's a killer on the island, he soon realizes that Runa is far from the peaceful community it seems.

Written In Bone
The narrators ability to create the different voices of the characters and make them utterly believable made this audio book an absolute gem. The author had me believing it was virtually every one on the island, and like every good thriller kept me gripped to the very end.Well worth the purchase.
Twists and turns
You think you know who it is. Then you don't. This is a fantastic listen and is the first audiobook that's really given me the creeps. Brilliant, all the way to the end.
Can't listen any more
I found the narrator of this audiobook so irritating I couldn't finish it, and now feel like I've wasted my money. His sing-song, matter-of-fact narration is more suited to those 'and finally' news items you get on local news. It's a pity because his characterisation is excellent. I'm going to buy this book and read it myself, with a little more gravitas that this narrator gives it. Listen to the preview before you buy this.
