The Resurrection of the BodyUnknown - 2008
Winner of the first `World One-Day Novel Cup' prize. While conducting the Good Friday service, Vicar Richard Page is horrified when a man staggers in, bleeding from wounds inflicted during a vicious knife attack. There is no identification on him; he later dies, and no one comes forward to claim the body. Even more bizarrely, his corpse disappears from the morgue, leaving the police baffled and suspicious. The vicar is drawn into a bruising quest to uncover this man's identity and explain the unexplainable. His obsession will bring him into conflict with the police, his superiors, his congregation, and even his wife. The Resurrection of the Body is a thought provoking work exploring love, religion, and madness within an eerie and unsettling mystery. New revised edition "A traditional whodunit turns into an unsettling journey of murder, obsession and a crisis of faith in the skillful hands of British author Hamand... A compelling story builds to a chilling conclusion." Publishers Weekly
