Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Washington Post hailed Jonathan Nasaw's debut thriller as "superior" and "frightening." The Toronto Sun called him "a legitimate heavyweight contender among the masters of the psychological thriller" with "the most original, twisted, terrifying villains known to mankind." Now, in Twenty-Seven Bones, Nasaw turns up the heat — and the suspense — with a pair of deranged killers who defy the very nature of life, death, and desire....

There are twenty-seven bones in the human hand. And there are three dead bodies on the island of St. Luke — each victim missing a hand. It's the strangest, most disturbing series of murders the Caribbean has ever known — and one of the few crimes that could pull FBI Special Agent E. L. Pender out of retirement. In all of his years, he's never faced such a diabolical underworld drenched in superstition. At the heart of this darkness is a husband-and-wife team with a perverse plan so powerfully consuming, so brilliantly evil, that Pender can only watch and wait...as the grisly hand of fate reaches out for its next victim.

Synopsis:

Former FBI Agent E.L. Pender's vacation in a tropical paradise is cut short when mutilated bodies begin to surface. Could these killings be connected to faith-driven fanaticism, or is this the work of a madman who is using the island's cultural folklore for his own deadly aims?

Dear Reader, January 15, 2009 (view all comments by Dear Reader)
I couldn't put it down. Nasaw's psychotic killers are addictive. His stories keep me aware that one of them could be a neighbor, one of my book club members, a professor from college, or .....

Agent Pender is out of retirement and as sharp as ever. Has he found true love at last? I can't wait to read more. And Marley, will he grow up to be an agent too?
