A Richard and Judy Book Club pick.
The Bones of You is a gripping psychological thriller from author Debbie Howells; a story full of dark secrets, obsession and suspense.
A community in shock.
When eighteen-year-old Rosie Anderson disappears, the idyllic village where she lived will never be the same again. Local gardener Kate is struck with guilt. She'd come to know Rosie well, and thought she understood her – perhaps better even than Rosie's own mother.
A family torn apart.
Rosie was beautiful, kind and gentle. She came from a loving family and she had her whole life ahead of her. Who could possibly want to harm her? And why?
A keeper of secrets.
Kate is convinced the police are missing something. She's certain that someone in the village knows more than they're letting on. As the investigation deepens, so does Kate's obsession with solving the mystery of what happened to Rosie . . .
In British author Howells's suspenseful and poignant debut, horse-loving 18-year-old Rosie Anderson goes missing and a few days later is found stabbed to death in the woods, much to the shock of the residents of her well-to-do Sussex community. People want to believe that Rosie's killer was a stranger, someone who committed a crime of opportunity. Kate McKay, a horse-loving neighbor who has a daughter Rosie's age, attempts to comfort Rosie's bereft mother, Jo. Also devastated are Jo's husband, Neal, who's a famous journalist, and their younger daughter, Delphine. The how and the why of Rosie's murder slowly unfolds across the dual narratives of Rosie, who, in death, looks over a family life that was far from perfect, and Kate, who's battling her own demons. Savvy mystery fans will identify the culprit before the big reveal, but the increasingly tense storytelling and astute observations on mother-daughter relationships will keep readers turning the pages.
