I really enjoyed this book. I was able to figure out whodunit before the ending, but that was ok. I really want to read more by this author.

I read Bone Deep in one sitting and wanted much more. I love the way this guy's mind works, funny, devious, dark and serious, and rocket fast. My first David Wiltse book and can't wait to pick up the other John Becker's books

A very suspenseful thriller combined with incredible tension between the characters produces a thriller of nail-biting dimensions. By illustrating the strengths and weaknesses of the players involved in this drama, David Wiltse manages to breathe life and depth into what would be an engaging thriller by any standards.

I guess I'm done with David Wiltse, I've only liked the first John Becker book and the rest I didn't like at all, this is no exception, it is so slow slow slow and pages and pages of descriptions-----again, it is not necessary to describe the sun the moon and the stars or what they wear or what they eat and this is just loaded with unnecessary descriptions and makes the pages just long and boring!

"First he gains her trust, He flatters her, Seduces her. Loves her. Then in the heat of passion, he slips his hands around her throat. . . this is a nail biter for sure.

Wiltse's fifth thriller to feature FBI agent John Becker (Into the Fire, etc.) effectively paints nearly every main character as the elusive serial killer preying on young women in the commuter hamlet of Camden, Conn. The rain-swollen Saugatuck River floats a bone into a local backyard, prompting the attention of the vacationing Becker and his old friend "Tee" Terhune, the town's police chief. Becker's assessment that the bone is human is confirmed by nerdy local orthopedist Stanley Korn. After marks on the bone reveal that the body it belongs to was cut in pieces before burial, an upriver search turns up a charnel house of companion bones in the loose soil of a Christmas tree farm. A prime suspect arises when Tee gets anonymous tips that one of his officers, the loathsome McNeil, who likes to sleep with high-school girls, is involved in the killings. Meanwhile, Becker's wife, Karen, an FBI honcho who's also his boss, pushes Becker and herself into a friendship with Korn and his wife. Signs of an affair between Korn and Karen unnerve Becker enough to hire private detectives to follow the orthopedist. Distracted by this threat to his marriage, Becker makes little headway on the case, while Tee obsesses about McNeil until a chance happening forces a frightening confrontation that nearly costs Karen her life. Wiltse manages to weave the psychological foibles of cops and criminals expertly, adding depth to a story that, even on the surface, is a nail-biter.
