Highly intelligent but socially inept, Colin spends his free time collecting academic qualifications and searching for ways to meet women, until he stumbles upon a new technique that proves both potent and deadly. Police analyst Annabel is shocked when she discovers a decomposing body in the house next door and realises that no one, including herself, noticed her neighbour’s absence. At work she finds data showing that such cases are frighteningly common in her own town and sets out to investigate, convinced she is on trail of a killer.

An interesting and chilling look at what happens when people die alone. How long does it take for that person to be discovered and why did they get to that point? Was it from natural causes or something else? A disturbing thriller about various accounts of people dying alone and why, and one person's interest in helping them get to that point.

Gruesome descriptions, uninteresting characters, slow moving story. I like Elizabeth Haynes, but this book was a waste of time.

I really enjoyed the author's first 2 books but found this one a very difficult read. While the premise about knowing our neighbours etc was interesting I found the villain very disturbing and the whole thing very creepy. A big disappointment.
