"New York Times bestselling author Elizabeth Haynes returns with a disturbing and powerful tale that preys on our darkest fears.Police analyst Annabel wouldn't describe herself as lonely. Her work and the needs of her aging mother keep her busy. But Annabel is shocked when she discovers her neighbors decomposing body in the house next door, and she is appalled to think that no one, including herself, noticed the womans absence. Annabel sets out to investigate, despite her colleagues; lack of interest, and discovers that such cases are frighteningly common in her hometown.A chilling thriller and a hymn to all the lonely people whose individual voices haunt its pages, Human Remains shows how vulnerable we are when we live alone, and how easily ordinary lives can fall apart when no one is watching"-- Provided by publisher.

An interesting and chilling look at what happens when people die alone. How long does it take for that person to be discovered and why did they get to that point? Was it from natural causes or something else? A disturbing thriller about various accounts of people dying alone and why, and one person's interest in helping them get to that point.

Gruesome descriptions, uninteresting characters, slow moving story. I like Elizabeth Haynes, but this book was a waste of time.

I really enjoyed the author's first 2 books but found this one a very difficult read. While the premise about knowing our neighbours etc was interesting I found the villain very disturbing and the whole thing very creepy. A big disappointment.
