Carol Anne Davis (born 1961 in Dundee, Scotland), is a Scottish crime novelist and a writer on crime. Davis left school at 15, and later graduated from the University of Dundee with an MA in criminology. As a postgraduate she received a diploma in adult and community education from the University of Edinburgh. In 1998, she left Scotland and moved to the south of England, where she lives today. Her first three novels are set in the Marchmont district of Edinburgh, where she lived for many years.

But Davis creates a marvelously mundane context for her frightened hero's murderous fantasies. Following the progress of his necrophiliac romance is like watching the Titanic and the iceberg glide inexorably toward each other. he can keep Marjorie all to himself, as still and silent as one of his clients as Reevon's Funeral Parlor. No real surprises in this pathological debut (a lot more ruminative and creepy than Do-Not's recent offerings). But Davis creates a marvelously mundane context for her frightened hero's murderous fantasies.

Driven by lust and fear, mortuary worker Douglas finds a way to make girls remain excitingly silent and inert. But then he is forced to blank out the details of their unplanned deaths.

Women. So annoying that they usually talk, walk, run in the other direction. There are ways and means, though. Solutions to this problem. Dougie boy has the answers.

I'm sorry but I couldn't help laughing at the sexual deviancy scenes in this book. Murder and necrophilia in general aren't funny, but the way it was described, the man's thoughts as he went about his business, it was as comically ridiculous as a Lifetime movie. I don't doubt that there are people out there who get off on having a completely still, or dead, sexual partner; it's just I can't see a real person being that dense about it. Maybe I sound negative. On the contrary, I enjoyed this aspect, once I'd accepted I wouldn't be reading a believable story.

Shrouded opens with a graphic scene of childhood abuse directed against young Douglas Tate. Douglas' step-father is a brutal man, and his mother is unwilling to advocate for her child's safety. Just as soon as we meet young Douglas, the novel jumps forward twenty years and we meet him again as an adult. To say that Douglas has grown up to become a disturbed and dangerous man would be an understatement.
Douglas has only recently moved away from his parents' home. We quickly ascertain that Douglas has no social skills, no friends, and far too much interest in the corpses he encounters in his job as an undertaker. Douglas remains tormented by his childhood abuse memories, and his new independent lifestyle has unleashed thoughts of sex and violence that quickly turn to obsession.
As we see Douglas' grip on reality loosen, we follow this character on what becomes a quest to find the perfect mate -- one forever silent, still, and sexually welcoming: one shrouded in death.
When Douglas meets shy and insecure Marjorie at a local fish store, he wonders if she might be the woman to satisfy his increasing sexual needs. After a few encounters at the local Fish Are Fun club exchanging thoughts about fish and aquariums, Douglas seems convinced that Marjorie just might be the right girl for him. And while this troubled girl fantasizes about a life with a man who actually seems interested in her, Douglas hatches an unthinkable plot to turn Marjorie into the girl of his dreams. From his initial introduction as an abused boy desperate for tenderness and parental love to his evolution into a sexual predator, Douglas is an unforgettable character.
If you're looking for a fast-reading, tightly and very well-written suspense book, try Shrouded. Sex, violence, tropical fish, plenty of tea and sweets, and corpes everywhere - what more do you want in a suspense novel? Read it. You may be creeped out ... you may be downright scared ... but you definitely won't be disappointed.

Creepy story about two socially maladjusted people whose lives intersect with nasty consequences. Douglas is a mortician with no interpersonal skills, making lists on his computer, and approaching each task in life analytically. Physically abused as a child, he finally moves out of his mother's house as an adult and slowly unravels mentally, turning into a quiet homicidal maniac. Marjorie is an asthmatic, overmothered wallflower who craves attention. Her timid involvement with a fish owner's club brings her into contact with Douglas. The book is convincing in showing how minor personality problems can either mask a dangerous psyche or get one in a lot of trouble. Could make a very good film.
