A bone washes up in a small Connecticut town, and lands at John Becker’s feet. It takes three months of rain for the bone to float up from its hiding place. It drifts to the door of a local housewife, who puts in a panicked call to the local police. The chief takes the call himself, and happens to bring John Becker along. Becker, a former FBI agent known nationwide for killing serial killers, has come here to get away from murder, but the bone washes up like a message in a bottle—a message that says death has found him again. The bone is human, with saw marks on either end, and it draws Becker into a gory game of cat and mouse. The killer, who calls himself Captain Luv, seduces every woman he can, and murders a select few. To find him, Becker will have to think like a madman—a part he plays all too well.
The stunning new thriller from the New York Times–bestselling author. When a Crow Indian acquaintance of Tomlinson’s asks him to help recover a relic stolen from his tribe, Doc Ford is happy to tag along—but neither Doc nor Tomlinson realize what they’ve let themselves in for. Their search takes them to the part of Central Florida known as Bone Valley, famous primarily for two things: a ruthless subculture of black-marketers who trade in illegal artifacts and fossils, and a multibillion-dollar phosphate industry whose strip mines compromise the very ground they walk on. Neither enterprise tolerates nosy outsiders. For each, public exposure equals big financial losses—and in a region built on a million-year accumulation of bones, there is no shortage of spots in which to hide a corpse. Or two.
What happens when you fall in love with the wrong person? The consequences threaten to be far-reaching and potentially deadly. Bone Deep is a contemporary novel of sibling rivalry, love, betrayal and murder. It is a dual narrative, told in alternative chapters by Mac, a woman bent on keeping the secrets of the past from her only son, and the enigmatic Lucie, whose own past is something of a closed book. Their story is underpinned by the creaking presence of an abandoned water mill, and haunted by the local legend of two long-dead sisters, themselves rivals in love, and ready to point an accusing finger from the pages of history.
