'Composed of over sixty per cent water itself, a human body isn't naturally buoyant. It will float only for as long as there is air in its lungs, before gradually sinking to the bottom as the air seeps out. If the water is very cold or deep, it will remain there, undergoing a slow, dark dissolution that can take years. But if the water is warm enough for bacteria to feed and multiply, then it will continue to decompose. Gases will build up in the intestines, increasing the body's buoyancy until it floats again. And the dead will literally rise . . . ' It was on a Friday evening that forensics consultant Dr David Hunter took the call: a Detective Inspector Lundy from the Essex force. Just up the coast from Mersea Island, near a place called Backwaters, a badly decomposed body has been found and the local police would welcome Hunter's help with the recovery and identification . . . Because they would like it to be that of Leo Villiers, the 31 year-old son of a prominent local family who went missing weeks ago, and they are under pressure to close the case. Villiers was supposed to have been having an affair with a married woman, Emma Derby. She too is missing, and the belief is that the young man disposed of his lover, and then killed himself. If only it was so straightforward. But Hunter has his doubts about the identity of the remains. The hands and feet are missing, the face no longer recognisable. Then further remains are found - and suddenly these remote wetlands are giving up yet more grisly secrets. As Hunter is slowly but surely drawn into a toxic mire of family secrets and resentments, local lies and deception, he finds himself unable, or perhaps unwilling, to escape even though he knows that the real threat comes from the living, not the dead. With its eerie and claustrophobic sense of place, explosive heart-in-mouth moments, and viscerally authentic forensics and police procedural detail, coupled with David Hunter's own uncanny ability to understand the living as much as the dead, The Restless Dead stands as a masterclass in crime fiction and marks the stunning return of one of the genre's best.… (lisätietoja)

"Goede personages en een origineel verhaal maken ‘watergraf’ tot één van Beckett’ beste boeken in deze reeks!" https://elinevandm.wordpress.com/2019/05/15/watergraf-van-simon-beckett-5/ ( )

Marvellous setting, marshes and drowned land...absolutely stunning. What's more, the characters are well developed, the story is captivating and believable, it's highly suspenseful and it keeps the reader focused right until the end... ( )

Zum Anfang zieht sich die Story so ziemlich in die länge und man braucht viel Geduld um rein zukommen, aber ungefähr ab der Hälfte des Buches fängt die Spannung an und zieht sich auch bis zum Ende hin.

Wieder einmal ein richtig gutes Buch von Simon Beckett. Nur zu empfhelen ( )

The Restless Dead is book five in the David Hunter series. I have not read any of the previous books in this series, but I have heard about it and have wanted to read them so I was happy to get the chance to participate in a blog tour for this book.

David Hunter is blacklisted after events in the previous book so when he gets a call for help to identifying a body doesn't he hesitate to go. This seems to be an open and shut case, they have a missing man and now they have found a body, but Hunter feels that something is wrong, despite the missing man's father confirmation that the dead man is wearing his son's clothes. And on his way to the mortuary for the autopsy does he take the wrong turn and suddenly he runs into problems with a flooded road and car that ends up stuck in the water and ends up taking refuge at a family that not only is acting hostile to him, but they also seem to have some secrets....

With this action, just getting stuck and having to accept help from strangers is Hunter suddenly drawn into a web of secrets. There is something odd going on, people are harbinger secrets and when the young daughter in the family that Hunter is staying with goes missing will the case suddenly take a different direction.

The Restless Dead never made me feel lost, despite not having read the previous four books. Instead, was I fascinated by Hunter and his tragic past with the death of his family and other events that have hit him hard (like a knife attack). The story in this book is intriguing and poor Hunter just doesn't seem to be able to do anything without stumbling over a dead body or being in the middle of things that go out of hand. I was engrossed with the story and I loved that it was hard to see how it all would end. Then, we have the interesting ending of the book when everything has been resolved, wow what a perfect and frustrating cliffhanger!

I became immersed in the story after the first chapter. Even though this is a series I believe that it's fair to say that the story works just as well as a standalone and will definitely leave you wanting to more. You will see right away that Dr. Hunter is more comfortable with the dead than the living and he usually finds himself in awkward situations without even trying. His deduction skills are as good as any detective and is always a key part in the resolution of any case. There are plenty of clues to the killer's identity along the way...the problem is about the time you think you have it...you don't...but you can bet that it was fun to try. A really great series that I highly recommend for any one that likes forensic mysteries. ( )
