    This is a deeply disturbing book, and it is definitely Elizabeth Haynes darkest so far. I devour her books as soon as they are released and I have loved them all so far. In each book I can back track to different times in my life and see a little bit of myself in each central character, which makes them all very real to meMAN REMAINS is told from two main points of view: Annabel -a lonely police analyst who lives alone except for her cat.-why don't lonely woman ever have dogs?-Annabel discovers [...]

    *5 scary, psychotic and yucky stars*Absolutely loved it! I was hesitant to read this book because of some of the reviews I've read that said it's nothing like the first book, that this one is slow, boring, gross and disgusting. Actually, gross and disgusting was the reason I decided to read it anyway :-). And why should it be like the first book anyway?It's true, the book is slow paced and could feel like a drag. But I loved the book because of it. Stories like these should be descriptive and ha [...]

    I decided to read this fantastic novel again as it had so much impact on it when I read it before, my rating stays the same at 5 stars. I have loved all of Elizabeth Haynes' books, this one being no exception. What I love about her books is her inside knowledge because of her career in the police force in the UK that she can put across in detail in her books. Then there is always that underlying creepy tension that makes her books a blend of psychological thriller/crime/police procedural. How we [...]

    Go heredassbookreviews/human-reor here.Michelle’s Review – 5 Skulls – A+This book is so disturbing. I hated what it did to me, how it made me think, made me question how I treat others, question my own motives, and question my relationship with my family. I hated how I was so deeply embedded in the mind of a narcissistic sociopath that I could predict his reactions. What does that say about me when I know how a sociopath is going to react (or in this case, not react)? It says nothing about [...]

    I really enjoyed finishing this one. It did have a very satisfying ending, which made up for some disappointment along the way. I enjoy psychological thrillers but this one really lacked something for me. The psychology of the victims was central to the story and very compelling, in spite of the fact that the author relied on having several sections narrated by the dead. And the sections narrated by the killer (this isn't much of a spoiler since it's pretty obvious who did it from the start) are [...]

    This book was a friend's gift, an ebook.I didn't know the author or the storyline.And I'm not a fan of digital reading, but I decided to give it a try.And the result? I really don't like reading e-books but Elizabeth Haynes has been a wonderful discovery for me!

    This one is tough (for me) to review. I don't think this is a book that can be enjoyed in terms of, say, liking what you're reading and fully intending to go back and reread it with some frequency, because the subject matter is far too sad, disturbing, and gruesome for that. Making things more complicated is that Elizabeth Haynes is a very talented author; one who knows how to evoke strong emotions in her readers. We're given insight into the lives of many of the "victims" (though calling them " [...]

    After going with a past and present narrative structure with her first two books Elizabeth Haynes has changed course with equally impressive results. The story goes of police analyst Annabel Hayer who discovers the decomposing body of her neighbour and is appalled when it is revealed that the person had been dead for along time without anyone seemingly noticing until know. After abit of investigation work Annabel finds out that there has been an unusully high amount of deaths in similar circumst [...]

    You can always tell when an author really enjoys writing a story, and I think with this one the reader feels that in spades. The story tackles themes with which Elizabeth is more than familiar, and the psychological component can't be beat.

    Colin is a biology nut and a behavioral science aficionado. His life is one of careful order, his job is with the city financial department. He is a perfectionist and feels vastly superior to everyone else. Colin has long since given up on looking for Ms. Right as no one can hold to his standards. Oh, and his mother is in a nursing home. His take on that is this - 'May she rot quietly and stinkingly in her wingback armchair.' Delightful chap, wouldn't you say?Annabel is a police analyst. She has [...]

    Human Remains is the third novel by former police intelligence analyst and author, Elizabeth Haynes. Searching for her missing cat, police intelligence analyst Annabel Hayer enters the abandoned house next to hers. She is shocked to find the decomposing body of her next-door-neighbour sitting in a lounge chair. Back at work, her interest piqued, she checks the data for similar cases, and is disturbed to note that the number has spiked in the last few months. Her superiors are only vaguely intere [...]

    DNF at 30%, which is a little over four hours in. I could not do the other 9, no wayDIOBOOK.This audiobook was awful. Truly awful.Before I bought it, I listened to the sample. The sample was great; a British narrator with a pleasant voice who I felt really brought the character to life. I enjoyed the humour in the writing even in the five minute sample. And Human Remains was quite pleasant to listen to. For the first chapter. Only. Which is only thirteen minutes long.In the second chapter, Karen [...]

    I loved Haynes' other 2 books but this was a huge disappointment. This was most certainly not a 'thriller that would have you locking your windows and doors' (as described) there wasn't a moment where I felt gripped or tense, the storyline was weak as were the characters. I still dont know anything about Annabel and Colin apart from the fact she was alone and he liked masterbating oh and of course the text book broken relationship between mother and son, Yawn yawn! Her mother died, she seemed to [...]

    4.5*"Ninguém olha nos seus olhos. E eu percebi que fazia anos e anos que ninguém havia mantido contacto visual comigo, e a última a fazer isso provavelmente foi Bev. Então, o que significava isso? O que podia significar? Se as pessoas pararem de olhar para você, você para de existir? Isso quer dizer que você não é mais uma pessoa? Isso quer dizer que você já está morto?"Opinião aqui: baudatanocasspo/res

    Very disturbing but interesting read. I do think the author captured really well the mind of a psychopath, Colin’s chapters were always my favorite, however it is a bit hard to believe that all these people were depressive enough to just kill themselves or allow to be killed by starving, can’t seem to think of a worse death than that!I was torn between ratings for this one but ended giving it 4 stars, it’s not a perfect book but it was gripping and exciting to read.

    When police analyst Annabel Hayer arrived home from work one evening, all she wanted was to relax in a hot bath. But the fates had other ideas! As she walked to her front door, she detected an unpleasant odour – believing her cat Lucy had decided to gift her with a mouse or similar, she prepared herself, but the smell was worse than that. Following her nose to the house next door, a house she believed had been empty for some months, she was horrified to discover the decomposing body of her nei [...]

    Having loved Into the Darkest Corner, but not enjoyed the storyline of Revenge of the Tide, I was unsure where Elizabeth Haynes third offering would lie but needn't have worried; this psychological thriller had me gripped from the first page, and remained so until the last word was read.Annabel returns from her work as a Police Crime Analyst to find her cat covered in a sticky substance having visited the house next door. Going to investigate she finds far more than she expected.The story is mai [...]

    Elizabeth Haynes is fast becoming one of my favourite contemporary authors. I absolutely loved her first book which I stumbled upon by chance and this third book is excellent too. It focuses on an unusual serial killer and the unique way he preys upon his victims (I shan't say any more than that at this point). It is very dark as it highlights the group in society which wants to withdraw from the world and whose absence is not always missed. I also liked the narrative from both the perspective o [...]

    Μα πόσο το αδικεί ο τίτλος τούτο το βιβλίοπόσο;! Η κεντρική ιδέα τού πολύ-καλογραμμένου θρίλερ είναι η ζωή των μοναχικών ανθρώπων και κατά ποσό η μοναξιά τους κάνει ευάλωτους.Η πρωταγωνίστρια γεμάτη ανασφάλειες και φοβίες μπλέκεται παραπάνω από όσο θα ήθελε στην υπόθεση, ε [...]

    ‘I wanted to go home and lock the door and not open it again.’This is the third novel from crime writer Elizabeth Haynes and for me this is her darkest yet. Annabel works as an analyst for the police. She is lonely, with just her cat Lucy for company at home, and a few visits a week to her housebound mum to separate her days. She works hard, and doesn’t have any other close relationships, seeing the friendships amongst others at work go on around her without being part of them, feeling rat [...]

    Loved it! Another winner from Haynes. Annabel works as a analyst for the police. She lives with her cat, has no friends and cares for her housebound mother. One night she finds her neighbour's dead body, sat at home, apparently starved to death. Soon after, she notices a pattern of vastly increasing similar suicides in the town, all of lonely and vulnerable people. But this story isn't just about Annabel, it's also about ColinI'm trying very hard not to give away vital twists and plot points. I [...]

    This is an unsusual and intriguing story and as well being a gripping thriller it is also fascinating to watch the main characters develop over the course of the book. It’s thought-provoking and certainly makes you question the power of the mind. The opening chapter is great example for any writer who wants to see how to create tension - proper edge of your seat stuff!We see the events unfolding from two different perspectives. Annabel is an intelligence analyst for the police. She's overweigh [...]

    This book is truly a psychological thriller. On the surface, the action actually appears very quiet. Annabel leads a fairly drab life and often seems to wander through her job as a police analyst. Meanwhile people are being found dead, apparently of natural causes, in their own homes in Briarstone. While some of the details of folks who have been undiscovered for some time after death can get a tad gruesome, there is very little by way of overt violence in this book.The plot basically centers on [...]

    I was introduced to Elizabeth Haynes by a TV book club programme. The book was Into The Darkest Corner and was superb. Next was Revenge of theTide- very different but equally as good, so good in fact that I pre-ordered her third book Human Remains as soon as I could on . Wow, Wow what a book. A superb tense psychological thriller with two main narratives- that of Annabel and that of Colin, interspersed with the stories of the dead bodies. The introduction of the thoughts of the victims was inspi [...]

    I think if this would've had fewer pages, I probably would have felt differently and rated it higher. I thought Colin was creepy, Annabel was sad, and all the victims were just so depressing. I know this is a psychological thriller. But for me, I did not get connected enough to the story or the characters. This was verbose and just too drawn out. I'm a little bummed for I had high hopes with this one. I really enjoyed Into the Darkest Corner. Ah well, I'll try more of Haynes in the future. This [...]

    I agree with Gayle, Elizabeth Haynes is starting to top my list too. Again, I can't seem to drag myself away from murders and gruesomenessbut this ticks all the boxes. Really quite a believable story and a sad one at that. I do like the fact that it's set in the UK, and the author makes good use of her knowledge of the police force and their techniques.I docked a star as I don't think it captivated me quite as much as Into the Darkest Corner. But I'll certainly be picking up a copy of Haynes' se [...]

    Elizabeth Haynes is a seriously gifted storyteller. She has a wonderful way of creating interesting, unique, real characters who make stop reading a nuisance. I keep wanting to read more and more with each of her books.The plots too; so out of the usual box for the genre! A refreshing new voice, definitely. Even the aspects or this story that could have been boring due to their didactic aspect (but absolutely necessary to the story) weren't. On the contraire, I learned a lot with this novel, in [...]

    This is a disturbing psychological thriller, told from multiple points of view. As a reader you find out quite early on who's the person behind the number of people found dead and decomposed in their own homes. Police analyst Annabel was my favourite character. She is honest, vulnerable and brave and her multi-layered portrait shows the damage that can be done to a person's sense of self-worth when they have experienced a difficult childhood. This is Haynes's goriest novel as well, so be warned [...]

    Freakishly, grotesquely good. not for quesy readers. it's not your typical psychological thriller since we meet the villain from the get go, nevertheless it is very thrilling to be in the mind of a genius psychopath. The book is squeamish but I loved every word of it.
