The Bones Will Speak by Carrie Stuart Parks

Forensic artist Gwen Marcey has become the target of a serial killer who believes he's been appointed God's executioner.

In Copper Creek, Montana, Gwen Marcey is struggling to put together her life after cancer and divorce. When her dog retrieves a skull of a murder victim and leads her to the victim's grave, Gwen uses her forensic art ability to identify a serial killer. She is horrified to discover all the victims look like her fourteen-year-old daughter.

The murderer is a "lone wolf," a member of the terrorist group Phineas Priesthood – and he has a score to settle with Gwen. Unraveling the tangled Christian Identity movement, where race – not grace – provides salvation, Gwen is in a frantic rush against time. She must use all her skills to uncover the killer before he can carry out his threat to destroy her and everyone she loves.

Carrie Stuart Parks’ second Gwen Marcey novel, The Bones Will Speak, offers quite an exhilarating read. A forensic artist, Gwen Marcey stumbles into a case with victims looking strikingly like her daughter and a serial killer focused on her for an unknown reason. As she works to discover the identity of the serial killer and protect her family, the case takes many twists and turns - with plenty of unexpected surprises and revelations. Well-paced and full of action, The Bones Will Speak kept me thoroughly intrigued and guessing from start to finish - even though I didn’t read the previous novel, A Cry from the Dust. This novel is still an excellent read on its own and is the perfect choice for readers looking for a suspenseful thriller. I highly recommend it.
