ABOUT THE BOOK

A killer with a penchant for torture has taken notice of forensic expert Gwen Marcey . . . and her daughter.
When Gwen Marcey’s dog comes home with a human skull and then leads her to a cabin in the woods near her Montana home, she realizes there’s a serial killer in her community. And when she finds a tortured young girl clinging to life on the cabin floor, she knows this killer is a lunatic.

Yet what unsettles Gwen most is that the victim looks uncannily like her daughter. The search for the torturer leads back in time to a neo-Nazi bombing in Washington state—a bombing with only one connection to Montana: Gwen. The group has a race-not-grace model of salvation . . . and they’ve marked Gwen as a race traitor. When it becomes clear that the killer has a score to settle, 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 the only family she has left.

My Review:
Gwen Marcey has been out of the loop for quite a while. But when her sweet dog brings home a female human skull, she knows it is time to get to business. With a mind like hers, she begins trying to figure out what the female once looked like. But when there is a skull there has to be a body somewhere. So Gwen and her dog head to where the skull was found, where they find an abandoned house. With a blood sandal in the yard and a rifle in hand, Gwen makes her way inside and there she finds a mangled, half breathing girl.

Soon Gwen begins to fear that there is a serial killer on the loose and he may be after her daughter next. As mysterious things happen, she believes that he is closer than everyone thinks, and may even be someone she knows.

The Bones Will Speak is an epic novel, full of mystery and suspense. It is also book two in the Gwen Marcey series. I enjoyed this book and found it to be a great read. I can not wait to see what happens next in this series, it is sure to be a hit.

**Disclosure** This book was sent to me free of charge for my honest review from CFBA.
