becomes clear that there is probably a second killer on the loose, a copy cat murderer In addition Detective Doyle seems determined to thwart the investigation at every turn Asbodies are found an intricate cat and mouse game begins, involving both killers and the police I have been reading a lot of historical fiction lately and just needed a break I enjoyed The Tunnels, the first book in this series, so I picked up Boneyard It did a good job of keeping me interested in a moderately entertaining serial killer mystery The characters were pretty standard good guys versus really bad guys, but with the exception of the main characters Kelly Jones and Jake Riley most of the other characters don t have much depth The dialogue in general was often stilted and plot lines are dropped without resolutions one involving a young boy who we become attached to is left unanswered and I found that very annoying There was quite a bit of graphic violence, not to be unexpected when dealing with this genre of books and there didn t seem to be much explanation of motives but the storyline was creepy enough to keep me interested and so I will be moving on to book 3, The Gatekeeper Overall this was a good but not great entry in this series I like forensic mysteries, especially ones that contain bones Not sure why, and I don t mind thegory mysteries either, but bones, how the scientists pry the truth from them, and what they can tell a forensic anthropologist about a person is extremely interesting.This is a bone mystery Takes place in Vermont, Massachusetts, and a little bit in New York state That s one of the parts I didn t totally love about the novel How some of the Massachusetts government was portrayed Yes, I am aw I like forensic mysteries, especially ones that contain bones

government was portrayed Yes, I am aware that the Mass government can suck sometimes, that the forensic labs in the state haven t always been the best managed, but it s not like the Mass lab is the only one in the country that is totally and utterly behind in processing DNA But, maybe I m just being too sensitive since it seems to me that Boston and Massachusetts sometimes gets a short shrift compared to the mighty, mighty New York, New York, or the glitzy LA.But, back to the book Agent Kelly Jones walks into a struggle of wills between Vermont and Massachusetts and gets to deal with that along with trying to solve the mystery of these bones that have been found.The mystery itself is good, not surprising in some ways, but it has a few twists I didn t see coming, a very solidly written and plotted story for sure.A definite read for mystery readers of all sort There s even a bit of romance, that doesn t take over the mystery, a definite plus if you like that I love it I get tired of Romance novels that are stuffed into the mystery genre when they shouldn t be, this one has just enough Romance to be fun, but the author doesn t go overboard Some time ago, Michelle Gagnon offered free downloads of this book from her website, and I took her up on it I was finally able to get to it library books come first , and it was great.In this second book in the Kelly Jones series, some hikers come across what turns out to be a mass grave in the woods Because of the proximity to the Massachusetts Vermont border, the FBI is called in to advise The FBI is in the person of agent Kelly

have been targeting young gay men who are drifters, and therefore not missed when they disappear Or is it two someones The investigators are led to two bodies placed together, but they ve definitely been killed by two different people Is it a copycat, or two killers working together Kelly is forced to deal with squabbling local police including uncooperative Massachusetts State Trooper Bill Doyle and eager to learn Vermont homicide detective Monica Lauer, as well as here own insecurities in order to discover the truth, which turns out to be evendisturbing than the investigators imagined.There are some graphic descriptions of torture, which I found difficult to read, but they are few and brief, and only used to advance the story I skimmed them, not just because of their disturbing nature, but because I really wanted to know what happened.I m definitely going to read Tunnels, the first in the series, and The Gatekeeper the third
