LoveReading View on The Bones of You

A Maxim Jakubowski selected title.

It's not the first time a book is partly narrated by a dead person observing the chaos his or her own murder has created amongst the living, but this twisty British psychological debut thriller picked up by an agent from the slush pile and already sold all over the world spins dark undercurrents with a strong and accomplished sense of dread. On the surface, landscape gardener Kate's small village life is almost perfect, but when the body of a teenager friend of her daughter's is discovered, her whole world tumbles into chaos and family and interpersonal relations are seriously called into doubt. With a nod to both THE LOVELY BONES and GONE GIRL and an assured sense of plotting, a novel that will keep you gripped as it unpeels layers of lies and deceptions all the way to a chilling conclusion. ~ Maxim Jakubowski

The Bones of You Synopsis

I have a gardener's inherent belief in the natural order of things. Soft-petalled flowers that go to seed. The resolute passage of the seasons. Swallows that fly thousands of miles to follow the eternal summer. Children who don't die before their parents. Rosie was beautiful, kind and gentle. She came from a loving family and she had her whole life ahead of her. Who could possibly want to harm her? And why?

The Bones of You Press Reviews

'The Bones of You is a brilliantly twisty read that delves deep into the dark heart of the seemingly perfect family.' Recommended Tammy Cohen

'I couldn't stop reading this from the moment I picked it up. An intelligent thriller which looks behind the perfect facade of village life to reveal the dark secrets within. Written with heart and real depth, and with some real hand-over-mouth moments - I was gasping in surprise in a cafe! This is going to be a huge hit, and deservedly so.' Rachael Lucas, author of Sealed With A Kiss and Coming Up Roses
