The Chemistry of Death - Simon Beckett ****

"When the bizarrely mutilated body of a young woman is found near an isolated Norfolk village, it isn’t just the fact that she was a friend that disturbs Dr David Hunter. Once a high-profile forensic anthropologist, he was all too familiar with the different faces of death until personal tragedy caused him to turn his back on that life.

Now hidden away as a country doctor, Hunter had hoped his past would remain buried. So when he’s asked to help track down the killer, he’s reluctant to become involved--to do so will stir up memories he’s long tried to forget. But then another woman disappears, plunging the community into a maelstrom of fear and paranoia. No one, not even Hunter is exempt from suspicion and he will need all his arcane skills if the killings are to stop…"

Quite good, unexpected ending after a few late plot twists keep you guessing. I'll look for more by him now.
