it was amazing
bookshelves: crime-thriller, mystery

This novel is the debut for Jen J. Danna, who along with Ann Vanderlaan, has written quite a compelling forensic thriller. The amount of information on body decomposition and bone aging is enough to satisfy any forensically inclined reader. The crimes are brutal, which is somewhat outside of my comfort zone, but when the madness is finally revealed, the scheme of it all is interesting indeed. From the discovery of a single bone, Trooper Leigh Abbott, with the help of forensic anthropologist Matt Lowell, is led on a nightmarish journey to catch a serial killer. The title is a particularly appealing and telling one, with its connection to the Civil War and nameless graves of soldiers. Leigh and Matt are driven by the determination that the remains of the brutal killings will not go unidentified and will be returned to their loved ones. I'm looking forward to more from Jen Danna and this new series.
