    I like forensic mysteries, especially ones that contain bones Not sure why, and I don t mind thegory mysteries either, but bones, how the scientists pry the truth from them, and what they can tell a forensic anthropologist about a person is extremely interesting.This is a bone mystery Takes place in Vermont, Massachusetts, and a little bit in New York state That s one of the parts I didn t totally love about the novel How some of the Massachusetts government was portrayed Yes, I am aw I like forensic mysteries, especially ones that contain bones Not sure why, and I don t mind thegory mysteries either, but bones, how the scientists pry the truth from them, and what they can tell a forensic anthropologist about a person is extremely interesting.This is a bone mystery Takes place in Vermont, Massachusetts, and a little bit in New York state That s one of the parts I didn t totally love about the novel How some of the Massachusetts government was portrayed Yes, I am aware that the Mass government can suck sometimes, that the forensic labs in the state haven t always been the best managed, but it s not like the Mass lab is the only one in the country that is totally and utterly behind in processing DNA But, maybe I m just being too sensitive since it seems to me that Boston and Massachusetts sometimes gets a short shrift compared to the mighty, mighty New York, New York, or the glitzy LA.But, back to the book Agent Kelly Jones walks into a struggle of wills between Vermont and Massachusetts and gets to deal with that along with trying to solve the mystery of these bones that have been found.The mystery itself is good, not surprising in some ways, but it has a few twists I didn t see coming, a very solidly written and plotted story for sure.A definite read for mystery readers of all sort There s even a bit of romance, that doesn t take over the mystery, a definite plus if you like that I love it I get tired of Romance novels that are stuffed into the mystery genre when they shouldn t be, this one has just enough Romance to be fun, but the author doesn t go overboard

    I can honestly say I was extremely disappointed reading this My library suggested it, and I read the prologue and thought wow, they re killing off men instead of women This I ve got to read With all the crime novels I ve read, it s always women, and some have crossed that ugly line into children Those I skip One has to be really messed up in the head to enjoy reading that So it was refreshing to finally see a crime novel where the men are the ones to bite the dust for once NOPE this aut I can honestly say I was extremely disappointed reading this My library suggested it, and I read the prologue and thought wow, they re killing off men instead of women This I ve got to read With all the crime novels I ve read, it s always women, and some have crossed that ugly line into children Those I skip One has to be really messed up in the head to enjoy reading that So it was refreshing to finally see a crime novel where the men are the ones to bite the dust for once NOPE this author had to make it about gay men Why Why do stereotypes continue Why can t someone else be a victim for once Done Didn t even finish it

    I suppose it was an okay book but what bothered me was the switch in the prose whose eyes are we seeing the world through now I know it wasn t written in first person but it felt like a chunk of the book expressed things through Kelly s eyes, the killer s and the stalker s.the important people And then the author gave us a glimpse into Monica s mind, who I really didn t care that much about There was a whole sort of merry go round narrration going on that messed up everything for me I gue I suppose it was an okay book but what bothered me was the switch in the prose whose eyes are we seeing the world through now I know it wasn t written in first person but it felt like a chunk of the book expressed things through Kelly s eyes, the killer s and the stalker s.the important people And then the author gave us a glimpse into Monica s mind, who I really didn t care that much about There was a whole sort of merry go round narrration going on that messed up everything for me I guess I should find a review with spoilers that will tell me how the story went down

    This lady can write, no doubt about it But there was a clue about 150 pages in that gave everything away I kept on reading thinking that maybe it was just a deliberate trick, but there were several other way too obvious hints and it just really ruined it for me I m not the smartest reader I can usually lose myself in the book and not figure things out so I can be surprised, so I know when I figure it out, it s all over Just disappointing.

    I like spunky female investigators and savvy serial killers This book didn t have either After almost 400 pages, I didn t really care if the killer s got caught or whether the heroine gave up her job at the FBI and entered private security Does everyone want to be in Blackwater
