Description - Written In Bone by Simon Beckett
I took the skull from its evidence bag and gently set it on the stainless steel table. Tell me who you are... As a favour to a colleague, Dr David Hunter is on the remote Hebridean island of Runa to inspect a grisly discovery. He's familiar with death in all its guises but is shocked by what he finds- a body, incinerated but for the feet and a single hand. It appears to be a textbook case of spontaneous human combustion. The local police are certain it s an accidental death, but Hunter is not convinced. Examining the scorched remains, he finds evidence that this was no accident; this was murder. And as the isolated community considers the enormity of Hunter s findings, a catastrophic storm hits the island. The power goes down, communication with the outside world ceases...and the killing begins in earnest.
