'Fascinating... spectacularly gory... fast-paced.' Mail on Sunday

A GRUESOME SECRET UNEARTHED

When a human skull is dug up in a garden near Boston, Dr Maura Isles is called in to investigate. She quickly discovers that the skeleton - that of a young woman - has been buried for over a hundred years. But who was the woman? And how did she die?

It is the 1830s, and an impoverished medical student, Norris Marshall, is forced to procure corpses in order to further his studies in human anatomy.

It's a gruesome livelihood that will bring him into contact with a terrifying serial killer who slips from ballrooms to graveyards and into autopsy suites.

And who is far, far closer than Norris could ever imagine...

Readers are gripped by The Bone Garden:

***** 'A captivating tale . . . full of mystery, despair, horror, and the eventual truth.'
***** 'Compelling . . . kept me awake into the night.'
***** 'Absolutely riveting . . . I was hooked from the very first page.'

Great book... But did anyone notice the typing error... The book refers to 1830s and the 1930s. Two very different dates...

The Bone Garden

This is an excellent book.. Lots of twists and turns. Couldn't put it down, so much so I bought a second copy and keep telling my friends and family to read it :))
