Roundtable Reviews features little more than book reviews and book news. We don't just stick to one genre. We have varying tastes and may be after a heartwarming romance one day, a new adult novel the next, and a creepy horror the day after that. Our book reviews always take one thought into consideration -- Would I pay the asking price for this book?

discovers the decomposing corpse of a neighbor, Annabel Hayer is
taken aback because she realizes that apparently no one really cared
enough about the elderly woman to check up on her from time to time.
A bit of a loner herself, Annabel is struck by the fact that this may
not be an isolated occurrence.
she works as a police analyst Annabel decides, out of curiosity, to
check the data base and see how often this type of sad event occurs.
She’s shocked to discover a surprising number of individuals of
all ages and walks of life have wasted away in a manner similar to
to do a little investigating herself to see what is going on here,
Annabel finds a circuitous trail leading to another “loner”, a
man named Colin. Is this the clever mastermind behind these deaths
that have remained beneath the official police radar because there
doesn’t seem to be any violence involved?
an alternating first person narration that places the reader into the
heads of both Annabel and Colin, Human Remains is a chilling
thriller that shows not only how vulnerable people who live alone can
be but also how they can be preyed upon without anyone ever realizing
what is happening.
fascinating and troubling character study, you’ll not soon forget
these two unusual adversaries.
