(Free Lance-Star, Nov. 23, Laura L. Hutchison)
But when one woman’s body, and then more, turn up in the marsh, it’s no laughing matter.
Homicide detective Milo Sturgis calls in Jonathan Kellerman‘s famous psychologist, Alex Delaware, in “Bones,” the latest in his series of more than two dozen crime novels.
Most of the dead women are prostitutes, but one, Selena Bass, who gives private piano lessons to a wealthy family’s musical prodigy, is suspiciously out of place.
A suspect quickly emerges, but the detective and psychologist aren’t willing to settle for answers that seem too easy.
Delaware is one of Kellerman’s great characters, and “Bones” is typically suspenseful. Many readers may suspect the true criminal early on, but the book still makes for an interesting read–if for nothing else than to see if your own sleuthing is on the money.
