Forensic artist Gwen Marcey has become the target of a serial killer who believes he's been appointed God's executioner.
In Copper Creek, Montana, Gwen Marcey is struggling to put together her life after cancer and divorce. When her dog retrieves a skull of a murder victim and leads her to the victim's grave, Gwen uses her forensic art ability to identify a serial killer. She is horrified to discover all the victims look like her fourteen-year-old daughter.
The murderer is a "lone wolf," a member of the terrorist group Phineas Priesthood-and he has a score to settle with Gwen. Unraveling the tangled Christian Identity movement, where race-not grace-provides salvation, Gwen is in a frantic rush against time. She must use all her skills to uncover the killer before he can carry out his threat to destroy her and everyone she loves.
* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *Author Carrie Stuart Parks, an internationally known forensic artist herself, has penned a terrific mystery/suspense novel that hooks you from page one to the closing paragraph. The main character, Gwen Marcey, is living through real-life problems that many of us are either dealing with or know someone who is. Add a mysterious cranium, bones of a young woman, and a live victim to bring a chilling serial killer to their small town.
This is the first novel from Carrie Stuart Parks that I have read, but it will not be the last! Although I have a crazy, busy life, I read The Bones Will Speak in two days. I look forward to reading the first book of the series A Cry from the Dust.
I received The Bones Will Speak: A Gwen Marcey novel from Thomas Nelson Publisher and their BookLook Bloggers program.
