Best-selling author Jan Burke has received the prestigious Edgar, Agatha, and Macavity Awards.In Bones, investigative reporter Irene Kelly joins a team leading a serial killer into the Sierra Nevadas to locate the graves of his victims.More
"When an edgy, rebellious teenage girl asks her to look for her missing mother, Irene crosses the path of a very dangerous serial killer - Nicholas Parrish. He is one of those totally anonymous but enormously gifted and resourceful villains found only in fiction. Parrish kills women who happen to look like Irene (and his abusive mother), and attracts devoted disciples to his grisly cause. Because of Irene's involvement, several more lives are damaged or endangered, and the strain takes its toll on the reporter's mental stability.Burke is such a fine, realistic writer that she can tread her way carefully across territory already well covered by Patricia Cornwell, Jeffery Deaver, Thomas Harris, et al. and still find something new to say about ritual murder and forensic science. But her real talent is bringing to full, instant life a remarkable woman - and the city she lives and works in." (Amazon.com review)
"A journey into the heart of darkness ... dark and gripping." (Los Angeles Times)
