Plot Summary
Human Remains is a standalone novel by author Elizabeth Haynes.  Police analyst Annabel discovers the body of her next door neighbor who has died of natural causes but in a state of decomposition.  On a whim she decides to investigate how many other bodies have been discovered in a similar state and discovers, shockingly that the number has dramatically increased in the past year in a way that looks suspicious but struggles to get her police colleagues to look into the matter.

My Review
Do you know your neighbors?  That is one of the central themes of this book.  It takes a look at how society tends to be individual and doesn't have a sense of social responsibility in looking out for those who might be vulnerable.

It is one of these British psychological novels that have sprung up in the last couple of years and does at times become deeply disturbing to read.  Haynes does quite well at bringing people's thoughts to life (the book is written in first person from the point of view of those involved- including the victims). 

It is certainly an interesting plot line and not what you'd expect from a crime novel although I did find that towards the end it became a bit repetitive.
