About the Book: 

Highly intelligent but socially inept, Colin spends his free time collecting academic qualifications and searching for ways to meet women, until he stumbles upon a new technique that proves both potent and deadly. Police analyst Annabel is shocked when she discovers a decomposing body in the house next door and realizes that no one, including herself, noticed her neighbor's absence. At work she finds data showing that such cases are frighteningly common in her own town and sets out to investigate, convinced she is on trail of a killer.

My Thoughts:

This is a fantastic psychological thriller that kept me up until the wee hours of the morning. When Annabel finds the woman who died in the house next store to her, she decides to investigate and that is when the story takes off. The novel was written in first person alternating between characters. This was very effective, unique and kept me hooked on the storyline. All of the people who were killed were at a vulnerable time in their lives and the killer took advantage of it. The descriptions of the decaying bodies was really realistic but there was no gruesome or bloody scenes. So how did they die? I guess you have to read the book to find out. This is one of the best books that I have read this year and included the memories of some of the people killed in the novel. So go out and get a copy for yourself! You will not be disappointed! 

Disclaimer: I was given a free copy of the book for my honest review and I was not compensated for my review.
