Book Tour and Review: Skin and Bones by D.C. Corso

Skin and Bones, a mystery novel by D. C. Corso, takes place in the Pacific Northwest and begins with the abduction of a child, every parent's nightmare.

Publisher's description: FBI Special Agent Severin Ash lives in a world haunted by people he's never even met - the missing and the dead. Working out of Seattle's field office, Ash is assigned to coordinate a child abduction investigation in the small island community of Carver Isle, WA. The case at first seems to be open-and-shut, but when another child disappears on Halloweeen, Ash realizes it's far from over. He teams up with local woman Parker Kelly, who has her own ideas about what may be happening. Together, Ash and Parker must solve this puzzle of deceit, identity and manipulation, exhuming secrets and memories both would prefer to leave undisturbed.

The striking cover may be a little off-putting, even for those who like mystery novels, but the writing is solid. The cover does prepare you for a book that is definitely not cozy but a hard core look at crime. Hats off to Ms. Corso for writing a novel that doesn't hold back on some of the nastiness and harsh realities of life...and crime.

  1. You have to add a hard core thriller to your reading list every once in a while and this sounds like a winner!

  2. Interesting review and intriguing book. It sounds like a good read, but one I probably wouldn't want to read right before going to bed. Did that with The Bride Collector (not again). LOL

  3. Staci and Mason: This is more of a noir mystery than a thriller. The characters/villains are not people you would want anywhere in your neighborhood!

  4. Definitely chilling looking, but also compelling! Nice review.


I love getting comments and your thoughts...
