Three years ago, David Hunter moved to rural Norfolk to escape his life in London, his gritty work in forensics, and a tragedy that nearly destroyed him. Working as a simple country doctor, seeing his lost wife and daughter only in his dreams, David struggles to remain uninvolved when the corpse of a woman is found in the woods, a macabre sign from her killer decorating her body. In one horrifying instant, the quiet summer countryside that had been David’s refuge has turned malevolent—and suddenly there is no place to hide. The village of Manham is tight-knit, far from the beaten path. As a newcomer, Dr. Hunter is immediately a suspect. Once an expert in analyzing human remains, he reluctantly joins the police investigation—and when another woman disappears, it soon becomes personal. Because this time she is someone David knows, someone who has managed to penetrate the icy barrier around his heart. With a killer’s bizarre and twisted methods screaming out to him, with a brooding countryside beset with suspicion, David can feel the darkness gathering around him. For as the clock ticks down on a young woman’s life, David must follow a macabre trail of clues—all the way to its final, horrifying conclusion. From the Hardcover edition.

“I took the skull from its evidence bag and gently set it on the stainless steel table. ‘Tell me who you are. . . .’ ” With this silent plea, forensic expert Dr. David Hunter ignites a harrowing murder investigation on a windswept Scottish island, and a tale of menace, sexuality, and revenge unravels—along with the chilling message that a killer has… Dr. David Hunter should be in London with the woman he loves and a past he can’t quite shake off. Instead, as a favor to a beleaguered cop, Hunter travels to a remote island in the Outer Hebrides to inspect a baffling set of remains. A forensic anthropologist, he has seen bodies destroyed by all forms of violence, but even he is surprised at what he finds: human remains burned beyond recognition—all within the confines of an otherwise undamaged, unoccupied cottage. Local police want to rule the death accidental. But Hunter’s examination of the victim’s charred skull tells him that this woman, no doubt a stranger to the close-knit island of Runa, was murdered by someone nearby. Within days, two more people are dead by fire. Hunter’s job is to coax the dead into telling their stories—but now that he’s beginning to hear them, he is staggered by the truth. Working with only the barest of clues, he peels back the layers of mysteries past and present, exposing the tangle of secrets at the heart of this strange community—from the deceptions of a wealthy couple to the bitterness of an ex-cop and the secrets of a lonely single mother—as a tale of rage and perversion comes full circle…then explodes in a series of violent acts and shocking twists. From the Hardcover edition.

Some moments burn in the mind for ever. The landing is dark. Light comes from a window at the far end, enough to run by. Breath comes hard. From the stairs sound heavy footfalls in pursuit. The landing ends in a last doorway. There is no more running, only the need to hide... Imagine not knowing the father of your child. Not knowing his name. What he looks like. Or what sort of person he is. Although she is desperate for a baby, that is something that Kate Powell cannot accept. Single, independent, she likes to be in control of her own life - even if it has, somehow, become strangely shallow and meaningless. Then Kate meets a man who seems to be the answer to all her problems. But we all know appearances can be dangerously deceptive. And Kate should too. Soon her life is out her hands. And out of control...

An automaton, a man and a woman who can never meet, two stories of love—all are brought to incandescent life in this hauntingly moving novel from one of the finest writers of our time. London 2010: Catherine Gehrig, conservator at the Swinburne museum, learns of the sudden death of her colleague and lover of thirteen years. As the mistress of a married man, she must struggle to keep the depth of her anguish to herself. The one other person who knows Catherine’s secret—her boss—arranges for her to be given a special project away from prying eyes in the museum’s Annexe. Usually controlled and rational, but now mad with grief, Catherine reluctantly unpacks an extraordinary, eerie automaton that she has been charged with bringing back to life. As she begins to piece together the clockwork puzzle, she also uncovers a series of notebooks written by the mechanical creature’s original owner: a nineteenth-century Englishman, Henry Brandling, who traveled to Germany to commission it as a magical amusement for his consumptive son. But it is Catherine, nearly two hundred years later, who will find comfort and wonder in Henry’s story. And it is the automaton, in its beautiful, uncanny imitation of life, that will link two strangers confronted with the mysteries of creation, the miracle and catastrophe of human invention, and the body’s astonishing chemistry of love and feeling.

'Somebody!' I half-sob and then, more quietly, 'Please.' The words seem absorbed by the afternoon heat, lost amongst the trees. In their aftermath, the silence descends again. I know then that I’m not going anywhere... Sean is on the run. We don't know why and we don't know from whom, but we do know he's abandoned his battered, blood-stained car in the middle of an isolated part of rural France at the height of a sweltering summer. Desperate to avoid the police, he takes to the parched fields and country lanes but his leg is caught in a vicious animal trap. Near unconscious from pain and loss of blood, he is freed and taken in by two women - daughters of the owner of a rundown local farm with its ramshackle barn, blighted vineyard and the brooding lake. And it's then that Sean's problems really start... This nail-shredder of a thriller - like the fiction of Nicci French or Gillian Flynn - holds you from the beginning, tightening its grip as the story unfurls and shocks you with its final twist.

Medical science would greatly benefit AIDS research by examining the probability that live sperm in the blood stream is the virus like property that actually brakes down the immune system. Sperm cells live and develop in an acidic environment in several stages of maturation as they travel and ultimately reach the seminal vessel. Several ways sperm cells move in the more neutralized surroundings within the stomach, are discussed within the text. Sperm cells are in and out of both an acidic and a more basic, neutralized mucus environment as they travel. Alkaline secretions of the stomach wall, and juice from the pancreas, further neutralizes the sperm cell environment. Sperm cells live on.Sperm cells and undeveloped spermatoids with chromosomes are sucked from the penis causing misunderstood varieties in the gene pool characteristic of HIV-1 and HIV-2. A mucosa environment within the small intestine further supports sperm cells safely into the circulatory system. Researchers have believed for years that semen is the vessel that transports HIV. The portal vein system enables bacteria and viruses to travel back to the blood system after having contact with the intestinal tract. Sperm waste material within semen has the same domino effect.
The newly found receptor sites, CXCR4 and CCR5 support this theses. C protein is found near endothelial cells; those that make up the walls of blood vessels. The X protein explored in the text will cause a lot of excitement when reading the new publication. Researchers use the designation R to represent any alkyl group where two or more different alkyl groups are present in a molecule, thus R4 and R5. This chemistry is well explained in the text as well. Once inside the T cell, the sperm cell membrane, a thin polar body, is expelled releasing the tail. The head of the sperm cell within a plasma membrane contains a nucleus with 21 chromosomes that go into the cytoplasm of the white blood cell. Its head swells in the larger portion of the T cell. The sperm cell centriole and mitochondria are also present. Small amounts of DNA (mtDNA) in mitochondria, becomes active where tiny ribosome structures begin the synthesis of proteins, attempting to build additional proteins within the cytoplasm. Specific amino acids are carried to the ribosome where they are naturally reorganized to appropriate codons in messenger RNA. This is a natural process. As these mechanisms take place, they expand the white blood cell to the point that it bursts, destroying the T cell and the immune system. Millions of sperms cells are within a single ejaculate. They enter the circulatory system at the same time which looks like HIV is rapidly replicating; when in reality have become mass killers. The book includes an index and a glossary.
