Birdy Waterman stars in a riveting short story that will chill you to the bone—from the #1 New York Timesbestselling author of If You Tell.
They call it the Bone Box. A collection of old cases, solved and unsolved, that continue to haunt forensic pathologist Birdy Waterman. None is more disturbing than the first. After two decades, Birdy still remembers the screaming. The blood on the boy’s hands. The body of a girl, butchered in the woods.
Birdy’s testimony helped put her own cousin behind bars. It was a sacrifice for what she thought was right—but now, twenty years later, she wants to reopen the box. Reexamine the evidence. And rekindle her fears that a killer walked free—and is closer than ever.

The Bone Box
I've read many of Olsen's books and was usually rewarded with a good story line and interesting characters. This book however must have been a very early effort. It was the most amateurish attempt at a novel that I ever read.
Story jumping like crazy from one idea to another without an ounce of connection to make any of it believable. 0 stars.
The price of the book should have been a giveaway but I thought it would be a solid effort from an author I like.
