Bone White by Wendy Corsi Staub is a 2017 William Morrow publication.

This is the third and final installment in the ‘Mundy’ series.

I’ve been following along with this series from the beginning and so far, it’s been a very interesting, albeit slightly quirky series, which is set in Mundy’s Landing.

Now that the “Sleeping Beauty’ murder case has been solved, and Sullivan Leary has decided to leave the big city and settle in Mundy’s Landing, things have been rather quiet. But, after Emerson Mundy

It starts with a note, “We Shall Never Tell.” Emerson, a Mundy family descendant, travels to Mundy’s Landing to discover what terrible secret from the families past has come back to haunt her and her relatives.

It’s been a year since the Sleeping Beauty murders were solved and Sully has changed places, now working as a detective on Mundy’s Landing’s police force. She’s looking forward to quieter times, but it isn’t long before she’s smack dab in the middle of another murder investigation. Someone

Bone White
"In Mundy’s Landing, bygone bloodshed has become a big business. During the rigorous winter of 1666, all but five colonists in the small Hudson Valley settlement died of starvation. Accused of unimaginable crimes, James and Elizabeth Mundy and their three children survived, but the couple were later accused of murder and executed."


Bone White is the third book in the Mundy's Landing Series and features many of the same characters including NYPD Detective Sullivan Leary, who solved the

I love a good mystery and thriller. Wendy Corsi Staub delivers on all counts. This is book three in the Mundy's Landing series. Emerson Mundy's father has died and she comes to Mundy's Landing, her ancestral hometown to trace her past. She connects with long lost relatives and a closet full of skeletons going back centuries.

Former NYPD detective Sullivan Leary has moved to Mundy's Landing and is now a detective with the local police force. Sully solved the historic Sleeping Beauty murders the p

I liked the storyline. The book was interesting from the first intro,but as you continue to read the book got bland,boring and soo confusing that I have to read some of chapters twice.I understand the past and future in the story,but
Emerson Mundy decline is unanswered,there should have been more to her decline, then her father's death bed confession.

Police detective Sullivan "Sully" Leary has left her job and partner (and sometime lover) Stockton Barnes in New York, and taken a job with the police department in small town Mundy's Landing. Mundy's Landing is infamous due to the harsh winter of 1666 when all but 5 colonists died of starvation. Sully is slowly adjusting to life in a small town when Emerson Mundy comes to town in search of her roots. A suspected homicide occurs and Emerso

This novel was well written and quite creepy. The plot is not overly obvious, which is refreshing.

I do wish that the main characters were not so stereotyped within their roles/careers. I did start to get bored after the fist 100 pages or so.I did not enjoy how rapidly new characters were introduced in the novel. It seemed as though the reader was bombarded with 30 characters within the first 20 pages (yes I am averaging). It does not help that a major part of this plot involves a family genealog

The entire Mundy's Landing series is engrossing and suspenseful. The first, Blood Red, was thrilling and a definite page-turner. The second, Blue Moon, was emotional and scary. The third (and I hope not last), Bone White, continues in that vein with gripping suspense and a full history of Mundy's Landing that is filled with tragedy. I almost shouldn't want a 4th book because the people of this fictional town have suffered so much but I must have more. More Mundy's Landing and more Sully and Barn ...more

I loved this finale of the Mundy's Landing trilogy! Ms. Staub never disappoints. She hooks you from the first paragraph and launches all kinds of twists and turns until the ending. The quote on her books is "if you like Mary Higgins Clark you'll love Wendy Corsi Staub." Well I think Ms. Staub is like Mary Higgins Clark on steroids! Just keep writing them and I'll truly enjoy reading them. Great job!

It is always disappointing to me when an elderly character starts to suffer from memory loss or dementia, especially when that character has had a recurring role in a series. I read to escape from reality, and a character suffering through dementia always makes me recall the worst thing I have had to deal with in my life.

A solid thriller with fascinating historical details woven in. Some character motivations and details needed more fleshing out (why did this person do this or act this way?), but I enjoyed it all the same. Mundy's Landing is an interesting place. I started out of order, so haven't read books 1 and 2 yet.

Different..I found this book to be very strange and had to force myself to finish it. It jumped back and forth between centuries (via letters thrown in periodically) and I couldn't really figure out why. I was totally blown away by "who done it" though; I wouldn't have guessed in a million years.

This book is the third in a series. Entirely too much time is devoted to the mysteries, characters and events in the first two books. It ends with a teaser for the next book. The references to earlier family history are the best part of the book; the contemporary villain is not very believable.

I read it in 2 days! Couldn’t put it down! The ending so unexpected! I’ve already ordered the second one! Great read!
This was a very complicated mystery with a somewhat disappointing ending. I'm not sure what I was looking for, but as the third of three in the series, I expected something more.

Staub’s books are always quick, enjoyable reads. While this book DID have a killer, there were several other little mysteries sprinkled throughout that made it even more compelling to read.

Good story, though not my usual type. Obviously part of a series; I didn't realize that when I started. But it works as a stand-alone as well.

In BONE WHITE, the 3rd book in the series of Mundy's Landing, we return a year after the Sleeping Beauty Murders were solved. But there are more secrets in this quaint town including a suicide or was it murder?

What I love about Mr. Staub's books is that there are multiple mysteries interweaved into the story and this book did not disappoint.

Emerson Mundy, after her father's death, travels from CA to NY to find out about her history after her father makes a deathbed confession and
