Bone Gap Travellers - Fractured Truth is the second in this series. There is a thread that connects these stories along with the characters but could be read as a stand alone. This is an amazing crime drama about a vet and her dog; dealing with their physical and mental war injuries. Ex-Marine Brynn Callahan and her cadaver finding dog, Wilco, struggle with disabilities, bullying, drug dependency and a way to fit in with law enforcement to solve a MURDER. Furlong does an excellent job of twining Brynn's past with the skills needed to solve this crime. Fast read with in-depth character reasoning that lead to a satisfying conclusion. Very much look forward to the next in this series and hoping for Brynn to experience some true romantic love. "A copy of this book was provided by Kensington Books via Netgalley with no requirements for a review. Comments here are my honest opinion."

FRACTURED TRUTH, the second book in the Bone Gap Travellers series by Susan Furlong, is an intense, edge-of-your-seat read! First off, what captivated me was the raw, emotional power that Ms. Furlong writes with. Her protagonist, Brynn Callahan, is a flawed character both physically and emotionally but this reader couldn’t help but cheer her on and keep reading, hoping for redemption. While FRACTURED TRUTH can be read as a standalone, given Brynn’s life story unfolding in the first book, I would recommend starting there if possible. If not, by all means pick up this book and jump in for several hours of riveting entertainment! The action and suspense starts from the very first page and doesn’t let up. The plot is expertly interwoven into the unique culture of the Irish Travellers who have their own language and customs. Brynn was born into the Travellers’ society, yet she straddles her birth culture and the outside world after joining the Marines and experiencing the horrors and injuries sustained in the war in Afghanistan. Ms. Furlong brings the plight of our veterans and PTSD issues to light in a sensitive manner and weaves the effects into Brynn’s story and how she reacts and interacts. I was also drawn to Brynn’s dog, Wilco, who is a human remains detection canine and was also injured in Afghanistan. It is obvious that the author has researched extensively and her efforts show in a mesmerizing read! I was provided an advance copy via Netgalley with the hopes I would review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

4.5 Stars Brynn Callahan is an ex-Marine and a newly sworn-in deputy facing her first official homicide along with Wilco, her trained K-9. Brynn and her dog are rather unique characters. Brynn is still suffering from PTSD, using pills and alcohol to help get her through her days. She was injured during her time of service, half her body is covered with burn scars .. but most of her scars are inside. Wilco suffered a hit the same time as Brynn. He lost a leg and his hearing. He's been trained to sniff out human remains. Brynn is an Irish Traveler, which are somewhat like gypsies. They pretty much keep to themselves, handle their own problems and definitely do not trust the police. This puts Brynn in a precarious position. The mutilated body of a young woman is found in a cave. Brynn is shocked when she recognizes who the victim is ... a fellow member of the Travelers. Caught between two people .. the Travelers and the 'settled' people .. neither of whom trust her to do her job. It doesn't help when her fellow law officers don't particularly like her. Brynn must put her career on the line and her life at risk to find justice for a woman not unlike herself—haunted by her past, and caught in a vicious cycle she may never escape. The mystery is a good one, pitting people of one side against the other with Brynn caught in the middle. She's a unique character, and I found myself more engaged by her and her dog rather than the who-dun-it. It seems like she's fighting everyone coming at her from every direction .. and she's getting tired of defending herself against them all. If it weren't for Wilco, she'd feel totally alone. There are many suspects, several motivations for the murder of a young girl. The Travelers say that someone from the settled people must be responsible, while the settle people are sure that the Travelers did this awful thing. Old secrets will somehow find their way into the light. Although second in a series, this works quite well as a stand alone. I highly recommend reading SPLINTERED SILENCE, the first book. Many thanks to the author / Kensington Books / Netgalley for the advanced digital copy of this well-written crime fiction. Opinions expressed here are unbiased and entirely my own.
