Tora Hamilton is an outsider at her new home on the rocky, windswept Shetland Islands, a hundred miles from the northeastern tip of Scotland. Though her husband grew up here, it’s the first time he’s been back in twenty years. Digging in the peat on their new property, Tora unearths a human body, at first glance a centuries-old bog body, interesting but not uncommon. But realizing that the body is in fact much newer, that the woman’s heart has been cut out, and that she was killed within a few days of bearing a child, Tora, herself an obstetrician, becomes obsessed with finding out what happened to her—even when the police, her colleagues, and eventually her husband warn her against getting involved.

I really enjoyed this book. Great plot and fantastic characters.

Bryan Hey Kevin, would you recommend this one for me? Don't like them too gruesome...

Kevin I really liked both this one and Blood Harvest...they both involve some forensics. They do both have some adult themes. I would think you would like them both. When I wasn't reading Blood Harvest I thought about it. Spooky.
