In “The Bones Will Speak” forensic artist Gwen Marcey is thrown into tracking down a serial killer.when her dog brings home a human skull, it leads her to a cabin in the woods, where a young girl is found clinging to life,and nearby a grave with dead bodies buried. Gwen realises there is a serial killer loose in their community and it soon becomes apparent that the killer has a score to settle. In her search for the serial killer , she is led back in time to a neo-Nazi bombing in Washington state, a bombing with only one connection to Montana and its Gwen! What’s the connection? 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 her daughter.
Gwen our heroine is not your typical “kick ass” character, she is in remission from cancer, raising a teenage daughter on her own after her divorce, as well as bing pre menopausal, but this makes her more believable. The author of the bones will speak was also a forensic artist so the detail surrounding the crime scenes is very believable and well described from the opening chapter.the first few chapters dragged me in and then the pace seem to slow down to over midway when it picked up the pace again, although I enjoyed The bones will speak, I found it a mediocre read,I like a book to remain fast paced throughout, also there was a little too much religion and quoting of scriptures for me. I received this advanced copy from netgalley in return for an honest review
