Audiobook Description:

Fifteen years ago I watched my father’s murder.

Now, having never truly recovered from losing her father all those years ago, Detective Delaney Pace is devastated when her brother and sister-in-law are killed in a car crash. Packing up her life she heads back to the rugged cowboy town of Kearney, Wyoming. Her niece Kateena is just eleven years old and Delaney will do anything to keep her safe…

Now there’s another killer on the loose, and he’s already taken his first victim.

New to the local police force, when a body is found on a secluded mountain trail Delaney is called to the scene. Surrounded by imposing pine trees, a young woman lies still in the moonlight. Gazing into her dark, unblinking eyes Delaney’s heart pounds wildly in her chest as she recognises the victim. It’s her beloved sister-in-law: Kateena’s mother, Lila. But she died weeks before. Didn’t she?

There’s evil lurking in this town and I’ll stop at nothing to hunt down the truth and deliver justice. With Kateena traumatised all over again, when Delaney links Lila’s murder back to the place where her own father was killed she realizes she must face her own dark past to catch the man responsible. But little does she know that the killer has already made their next deadly move. Back at home, Kateena should be in bed sleeping soundly, but her room is empty. Kateena is missing…

Can Delaney uncover the truth behind the killings and save Kateena before it’s too late?

Jessica’s Review:

This is another thriller where the description grabbed my attention and I wanted to listen to it. Her Silent Bones is the first in a three-book series with all three books coming out January 16, 2024. So if you love this first book you will not have to wait for the next two to be released! Great job on that to the publisher Bookouture!

It is a fast read/listen and if you become attached to Delaney you will be fully invested and ready for the next book!

The beginning and the end were very fast moving for me, but the middle of the book just slowed for me and I almost lost interest in continuing the book, but I was just curious enough that I had to see what was going to happen next. I am glad I finished it, but I don’t think I will continue the series. The last portion of the book was building up for the second in the series. I am sure we will see readers/listeners continue this series. They will want to see what happens next with Delaney and others!

Many thanks to the publisher Bookouture for granting me an advanced copy to listen to and review!
