Review for Forgotten Bones (Dead Remaining #1) by Vivian Barz

Kindle Edition, 298 pages
Expected publication: August 1st 2019 by Thomas & Mercer

An unlikely pair teams up to investigate a brutal murder in a haunting thriller that walks the line between reality and impossibility.

When small-town police officers discover the grave of a young boy, they’re quick to pin the crime on a convicted felon who lives nearby. But when it comes to murder, Officer Susan Marlan never trusts a simple explanation, so she’s just getting started.

Meanwhile, college professor Eric Evans hallucinates a young boy in overalls: a symptom of his schizophrenia—or so he thinks. But when more bodies turn up, Eric has more visions, and they mirror details of the murder case. As the investigation continues, the police stick with their original conclusion, but Susan’s instincts tell her something is off. The higher-ups keep stonewalling her, and the FBI’s closing in.

Desperate for answers, Susan goes rogue and turns to Eric for help. Together they take an unorthodox approach to the case as the evidence keeps getting stranger. With Eric’s hallucinations intensifying and the body count rising, can the pair separate truth from illusion long enough to catch a monster? 

My Thoughts…

Haunting, thrilling, and entertaining are three words I’d use to describe Forgotten Bones.    Many of the characters had no connection until the bones were discovered buried at a local farm.    Then things started to be heard, images began to appear, and characters started to weave their stories together to find out the truth of who was behind all the bones that were found.   

I had no doubt that the obvious suspect wasn’t the guilty person.  If it was that obvious it would not have been a good book (and this is a good book).    The story gave clues but I never saw the entire truth until it was laid out for me.   I loved the suspense of what would come next, I can never guess but am always thrilled when a story takes a turn that I didn’t see coming.  

Forgotten Bones is a mystery, thriller, and amazing story.   I enjoyed the characters, the storyline, and everything else about the book.
