White Bones by Graham Masterton
  

Lovereading view...

Sarah Broadhurst's view...

Renowned for his horror novels this new crime series starring Detective Katie Maguire has Graham’s stamp of menace and chill firmly upon it. Ancient Irish folklore and history give it a fantasy feel and supernatural elements are thrown in for good measure. The result is a rattling good read that pulls you along, eager to know, in some cases afraid to know for it is disturbingly gruesome in parts. Its subplot establishes the foundations of the character of its strong female protagonist for use in future books which I am certainly looking forward to. Well written with a great turn of phrase and even a little humour amongst the gore, I highly recommend it.

If you like Graham Masterton you might also like to read books by Tana French, Mo Hayder and Peter May.

Synopsis

White Bones by Graham Masterton

An ancient Irish mystery. A ritualistic modern-day killer. Ireland's first female detective Katie Maguire must find the connection. One wet, windswept November morning, a field on Meagher's farm gives up the dismembered bones of eleven women...Their skeletons bear the marks of a meticulous butcher. The bodies date back to 1915. All were likely skinned alive.But then a young woman goes missing, and her remains, the bones carefully stripped and arranged in an arcane pattern, are discovered on the same farm. With the crimes of the past echoing in the present, D.S. Katie Maguire must solve a decades-old murder steeped in ancient legend...before this terrifying killer strikes again.
