The Bonekeeper

book nine of the Bo Austen series


Busy planning a wedding, raising their girls, and taking care of the youngest set of the Mason twins, forensic analyst Bo Austen and Detective Jensen Taylor are caught entirely off guard as they catch wind of the latest homicide scene in Clinstone, Minnesota. On the last day of school, a headless corpse washes up on Clinstone’s baseball field.

Bo manages to identify the body as Serena Bishop. Her fingernails have all been removed, pried from her fingers with what Bo assumes was a pair of pliers. The spinal cord has been severed, the head nowhere to be found.

Usually, when a killer keeps a part of the victim’s body, it’s usually kept as a trophy of the kill and the victim, a permanent reminder of what they accomplished. Clinstone’s newest killer, however, takes the bones of their victims as a large part of their M.O..

Sergeant Jacob Mason arrives at the scene before the body’s taken back to the morgue, and by cracking a single joke, he gives the killer a name that sticks from day one: The Bonekeeper.
