LOVED this book! Was a nice breath of fresh air after some disappointing "thrillers". This had all the elements of mystery, suspense, thrills, whodunnit, tragedy, some romance (tho twisted at best). This one lost no momentum from the first page to the very last and definitely keeps you guessing. Just when you think you know who did it, think again. Was my first by this author but won't be the last!

Not as good as the author's Mallory series, but it had engaging characters and a good, intricate plot that kept me interested.

Absoloutely marvelous. As good as the Mallory series in setting a mood and twining around your heart. You really learn to care for these characters.

20 years after his younger brother went missing, Oren returns from the army to find his brother's bones have been turning up one by one on his father's front porch. Rather than notifying the officials, Oren's father has purchased a casket, placed it in his brother's room and has been placing the bone in the casket as they are returned one by one. Oren immediately notifies the sherrif and the case is reopened and it seems the entire cast of characters become suspect. The characters in the book are very interesting and the murder-love story held my interest well.

If you have not tried Carol O'Connell your missing out. I always like her Mallory series but she took on new characters for Bone by Bone and Judas Child-both of which are her best. I truly enjoyed this book. It had very interesting characters, great plot twists, and saddness about the murder of a young boy. I hope she keeps trying out these new characters!!
