The Bone Readers
by Jacob Ross
A fascinating murder mystery and a completely different setting and system of policing for me – masterly doesn’t even come close to describing it. This is must for all crime readers.
In the Jhalak Prize-winning crime debut by highly acclaimed author Jacob Ross, two cold cases collide on the Caribbean island of Camaho for the thrilling start to a new series following forensics genius Michael Digson.
Secrets can be buried, but bones can speak . . .
After standing witness to a murder on the streets of the Caribbean island of Camaho, young Michael ‘Digger’ Digson is recruited into a unique plain clothes homicide squad, an eclectic group of semi-official police officers, led by the enigmatic DS Chilman.
Digger becomes enmeshed in Chilman’s obsession with a cold case, the disappearance of a young man. But Digger has a murder to pursue too: that of his mother, killed by a renegade police squad when he was a boy.
He has two weapons at his disposal – his skill in forensics, and Chilman’s latest recruit, the mysterious, observant Miss Stanislaus. Together, the two find themselves dragged into a world of dangerous secrets that demands every ounce of their courage to survive.
This award-winning crime debut by highly acclaimed author Jacob Ross marks the thrilling start to a new series following forensics genius Michael Digson.
