I'm pleased to say that in this case, it did that very well. First, while this is a series, each book could easily be read as a standalone. In this regard, it reminds me of the ...

The pace doesn’t slow down all through the book so you’ll need to be prepared for a fast and furious ride through this suspenseful thriller. There is someone on the loose who is killing victims that look a lot like Gwen’s ... I felt like I was right there alongside the characters!

The first book received an award and great reviews, so I was excited to read this; however, I found it very hard to get into. I struggled through the first eleven chapters before skimming the rest to find ... Slow Read, Hard to Get Into

On 10/3 EpicFehlReader wrote: Just as in the first book, The Bones Will Speak is inspired by Parks' own true-life experiences as a forensic artist. In her author's afterword, Parks does explain that it is not scene for scene inspired and that a good bit of creative license was woven in, but I still found it pretty cool to hear the ...

The idea of the book was very promising and I love a good mystery where the main female character works with forensics. That really ... a bit of slow paced mystery
