In the Appalachian town of Bone Gap, Tennessee, backwoods justice is more than just blind. It’s swift, silent, and shockingly personal. Especially for Irish Traveller turned deputy sheriff Brynn Callahan . . .
“Hear No Evil.”
The first message is found in a playground. A few feet away, a pair of human ears hang from the monkey bars. Deputy sheriff Brynn Callahan isn’t sure what to make of this grisly scene. Do the ears belong to a murder victim? And if so, where is the body? One thing Brynn is sure of: the earring on one of the earlobes belongs to a man she met at a party the previous night. . .
“Speak No Evil.”
The second message is discovered next to a human tongue on a park pavilion. Once again, no body is found. Brynn can’t help but wonder if the crimes are rooted in the town’s long-simmering tensions between Bone Gap locals and the barely tolerated Travellers who’ve settled there.
“See No Evil.”
For Brynn, the investigation hits too close to home—forcing her to confront the demons of her own past. But time is running out. Brynn has to track down the culprit before a third message is delivered—and a third victim is claimed. Rich, atmospheric, and brilliantly chilling, Shattered Justice is the third Bone Gap Travellers novel from the acclaimed author of Splintered Silence and Fractured Truth.
“Brynn Callahan is the gutsy heroine of Susan Furlong’s gritty series, a real find, if you ask me. The thickly forested setting is gorgeous, once you look past the armed militia encampments pitched in the woods. And the locals are just quirky enough to make you forget they can also be dangerous. But the sturdy wildflower in this treacherous terrain is Brynn, who lives with a dog named Wilco, ‘once the best damn HRD (human remains detection) dog in the entire Middle Eastern conflict.’ The question is, are these two veterans tough enough to survive on the home front?”
—The New York Times Book Review
“Furlong carefully interlaces the two story lines as they come together in an unexpected and nail-biting resolution…Readers will hope Brynn and Wilco will be back soon.”
“A harrowing portrait of addiction, prejudice, and redemption neatly encapsulated in a guileful mystery.”
In Furlong's intriguing third Bone Gap Travellers novel (after 2018's Fractured Truth), alcoholic deputy sheriff Brynn Callahan, a former Marine who was wounded in Afghanistan, is resented by the Irish Travellers, to whom she's related, and the other residents of Bone Gap, Tenn. Brynn's life gets more complicated when a Traveller nemesis returns to town determined to kill her and expose a dark family secret related to Brynn's rape as a girl. Meanwhile, the discovery of severed ears with a "Hear No Evil" note attached and later a tongue with a "Speak No Evil" note suggests a serial killer is roaming Bone Gap. If the attempts on Brynn's life and the serial killings are connected, then her two worlds are colliding, and she's in danger of becoming the "See No Evil" victim. Furlong carefully interlaces the two story lines as they come together in an unexpected and nail-biting resolution. Brynn's interactions with Wilco, her body-sniffing dog that lost a leg in the same IED attack that injured her, bring some relief from the grim goings-on. Readers will hope Brynn and Wilco will be back soon.
