Carrie Stuart Parks in her new book, “Bones Will Speak book coverThe Bones Will Speak” Book Two in the Gwen Marcey series published by Thomas Nelson gives us another adventure with Gwen Marcey.

From the back cover:  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.

A forensics expert, a serial killer and torture, these are just some of the ingredients to be found in this book. I think that this book is even more exciting than the first one and the first one was a real page turner. Gwen Marcey happens to find out about a murder and while she is trying to reconstruct the face she discovers that the victim looks like her daughter. Now Gwen realizes that a serial killer has targeted her and her daughter and this killer might be someone known in her community. Now the race is on as to who will complete their assignment first:  Gwen or the killer. This is hot stuff. Gwen Marcey is warm and likable and we get engaged in her life. “The Bones Will Speak” is a thriller, which simply means that Gwen is in grave danger from, practically, the beginning.  Ms. Parks gives us a really complex mystery and “The Bones Will Speak” is full of twists and turns, with a few red herrings thrown in just to cause confusion. This is an exciting book, extremely well paced and suspenseful.  I am so looking forward to more Gwen Marcey stories.
