Today’s tour is about a book I thoroughly enjoyed. It made the suspense reader in me happy. You can read my review below.
ABOUT THE BOOK
A killer with a penchant for torture has taken notice of forensic expert Gwen Marcey . . . and her daughter.
When Gwen Marcey’s dog comes home with a human skull and then leads her to a cabin in the woods near her Montana home, she realizes there’s a serial killer in her community. And when she finds a tortured young girl clinging to life on the cabin floor, she knows this killer is a lunatic.
Yet what unsettles Gwen most is that the victim looks uncannily like her daughter.
The search for the torturer leads back in time to a neo-Nazi bombing in Washington state—a bombing with only one connection to Montana: Gwen. The group has a race-not-grace model of salvation . . . and they’ve marked Gwen as a race traitor.
When it becomes clear that the killer has a score to settle, Gwen finds herself in a battle against time. She will have to use all of her forensic skills to find the killer before he can carry out his threat to destroy her—and the only family she has left.
The Bones Will Speak is an absolute page turner. Carrie Stuart Parks has quickly developed a style that goes deep into a story with multiple plot lines intersecting throughout the pages. This style makes it incredibly hard to put a book down. Where the A Cry From the Dust dove into a what if regarding Mormon history, The Bones Will Speak dives into the neo-Nazi world with a serial killer who seems to be stalking Gwen Marcey.
The killer has planted evidence close to her home and takes her on a scary ride that is intense and filled with suspense. The prologue launches the book with one case. The first chapter picks up with Gwen’s first person account of what is happening years later…and eventually the two begin to overlap. Throughout it all, Gwen has to deal with the messiness of real life…and staying alive.
The Bones Will Speak is perfect for those who love a good suspense. I highly recommend it!
