A woman mourns alone.
A reporter works a single lead.

About the Author
D.F. Bailey's first novel, Fire Eyes, was a finalist for the W.H. Smith First Novel Award. A second novel, Healing the Dead, was translated into German as Todliche Ahnungen. This was followed by The Good Lie, another psychological thriller, now recorded as a talking book. A fourth novel, Exit from America, made its debut as an e-book in 2013. D.F. Bailey is currently working on a series of novels narrated from the point-of-view of a crime reporter in San Francisco.
Following his birth in Montreal, D.F. Bailey's family moved around North America from rural Ontario to New York City to McComb, Mississippi to Cape May, New Jersey. He finally "landed on his feet" on Vancouver Island -- where he lives next to the Salish Sea in the city of Victoria.
For twenty-two years D.F. Bailey worked at the University of Victoria where he taught creative writing and journalism and coordinated the Professional Writing Cooperative Education Program -- which he co-founded. From time to time he also freelanced as a business writer and journalist. In the fall of 2010 he left the university so that he could turn "his pre-occupation with writing into a full-blown obsession."

Dont start this book late at night,
I love a good thriller and I love mysteries, this was both. It had a great scene that was both gruesome and humorous,which is a little difficult to pull off.I will be reading the next book in this series. -J. Matthews
Will Finch is an investigative journalist that is sent to Oregon to report on the upcoming hearing on a US Senator. But when he looks into the death of someone mauled by a bear, Will learns that the victim was dating the Senator’s daughter and going to provide evidence against him. The more Will digs into this story the more barriers he runs into namely a sheriff that wants him gone. But the more he finds the harder Will digs to get to the truth. Will has had a rough go and his first story when he returns to work is the death of a man via bear. He has his own issues and I hoped this story will help him out. Although the beginning is a touch slow, I found myself easily slipping into the story and caught up trying to figure out what was going on. This is a great story that had me guessing the whole time. Although the ending resolves the mystery it is a great lead into the next book. If you like thrillers and mysteries you need to check this book out. It’s a quick read that will leave you wanting more. I received Bone Maker from the author for free. This has in no way influenced my opinion of this book.
I really enjoyed this book and was looking for more by this author. There are two other books in this series but they're not available on B&N, although they are available on Amazon.
