December 2010 Book of the Month.
Three young boys and a girl playing in the woods come across the body of a woman. Naturally they are traumatised. Over the next few hundred pages more women are murdered and the children’s families become suspects. How to find answers in a very middle-class community is tautly handled in a gripping read, a tad grisly for me but truly enthralling.
On the damp, leaf-strewn ground a gruesome trophy is displayed. It's a young woman. Although her battered body has been buried, her head is propped on a stone like an offering, her mouth and eyes glued shut, her eardrums destroyed. This killer has struck this peaceful town before - and the savagery he inflicts on his victims is increasing. Vince Leone, a pioneering FBI profiler, is called in to try to unlock the mind of the killer - a strategy that pulls him deep into the devastated community. Suspicions thicken, secrets spill out and reputations shatter as Vince draws ever nearer to evil
