Overview

A Thousand Bones by P. J. Parrish


A woman cop.

A haunting memory....


The only female detective in the Miami PD's Homicide division, Joe Frye has memories that haunt her, and a past that not even her lover, detective Louis Kincaid, truly knows. It began when Joe was an ambitious rookie cop in a small Michigan town called Echo Bay....

The bones found in the woods were the first clue in a string of unimaginably brutal murders of young women. Plunged into a heated investigation -- and caught between the dictates of a reluctant local sheriff and the state police -- Joe soon uncovers the chilling truth: In the dead of winter in the Michigan woods, she must face down a predator who has chosen her as a worthy opponent -- or become his next victim.

This book has 368 pages. Which is wonderful. It is a stand alone book, with a great conclusion. One sexual interacrion, which was luke warm. Two incidents of very mild cursing. A bit of homosexuality, but nothing horrible, no religion, there are 22 murders. Some cannibalism, some bodies are eaten by animals, some people are shot, some are tortured and sometimes it is very graphic. A dog gets stabbed. This book takes place in upper state Michagan, during the months od September to March in 1975-76. It has child abuse, which is more like toture. The cannibalism was hard for me to read. This book is very noir and part of a series. One reviewer mentioned a chacter is not in this book, but he is. In the first few page and in the last few pages. This is not chick lit. It is mystery / suspense. It is dark, gory and intense. There is lots of action. Men would enjoy this book as would women who enjoy gritty violent reads. There is also rapes and mutalations. Adults only. Men and women. An excellent read and highly recommended. AD

I read Patricia Cornwell books in the past. I picked up one of PJ's novels from a thrift store and fell in love with the series. A+++++

I have read other P.J. Parrish novels before, but I just finished A Thousand Bones and felt it was an absolutely outstanding book. The Parrish sisters presented Jo's story so compellingly and when one of the mothers takes her daughter's bones home, it was incredibly heartwarming. I sincerely hope that the Louis Kincaid series continues for a long time to come.

Louis Kincaid's significant other Miami-Dade Police Department¿s only female homicide detective Joe Frye looks back thirteen years ago to her first year as a cop. In 1975 the rookie Frye worked in the Sheriff's department of Leelanau County, Michigan where the job was one boring shift after another. Frye thought the ennui would drive her from her dream of being a cop. --- That is her job was tedious until the human remains were found in the woods near Echo Bay. Soon afterward more bones were uncovered making it obvious that several people were murdered. The county law enforcement was dealing with a particularly vicious serial killer whose victims were young women. Frye and others worked the case, but she alone honed in on enigmatic Native American carvings that were on a tree overlooking the gruesome crime scene. As she begins to solve the whodunit, the culprit hones in on the sleuth with plans to make her his next tortured female victim. --- Following up her strong supportive role in AN UNQUIET GRAVE, Frye takes the lead from her lover Kincaid who plays the minor second banana no one will care as a star is born. Frye is delightful as that case in her first season as a cop haunts her in 1988 so much so it is difficult for her to talk to anyone, even Kincaid, about it. The police procedural is cleverly designed, but even after the killer is known by Frye and readers, the tale smoothly switches into a cat and mouse encounter with the cop being the rodent. P.J. Parrish provides a powerful refreshing spin to his Kincaid saga with this sequel that begs for more Frye cases. --- Harriet Klausner

I really enjoyed this novel, and will look for others by this author. I though it a well writen book, and think this particular story would make a very compelling movie, or tv series. It was very interesting indeed. Was hard to put down. I don't have much time to read in a day, but, I found myself making more time to read. It grabbed me right at the start and continued on until the end.

And readers who prefer their books to have a traditional start middle and end often do like a series to deviate from their comfort zone. Mysteries are read by many because they stick to the classic form. Hope the author gets back on track for the next one or i will have "lost" another series.
