    Shortly after McClure leaves a late night meeting with Dennis Paull, the Secretary of Homeland Security, Paull is found - shot dead. The President is furious but equally frightened of a scandal, since Jack McClure is one of their own - an operative and Paull's friend. Who will protect the country if even McClure cannot be trusted? With top officials in the CIA and FBI after him, McClure, still devastated over his friend’s death, goes on the run.

    Reporter Holly Thorne is intrigued by Jim Ironheart, who has saved 12 lives in the past three months. Holly wants to know what kind of power drives him, why terrifying visions of a churning windmill haunt his dreams, and just what he means when he whispers in his sleep that an enemy who will kill everyone is coming.

    In Beatrice Prior's dystopian Chicago, society is divided into five factions, each dedicated to the cultivation of a particular virtue - Candor (the honest), Abnegation (the selfless), Dauntless (the brave), Amity (the peaceful), and Erudite (the intelligent). On an appointed day of every year, all sixteen-year-olds must select the faction to which they will devote the rest of their lives. For Beatrice, the decision is between staying with her family and being who she really is - she can't have both. So she makes a choice that surprises everyone, including herself.

    One choice can transform you - or it can destroy you. But every choice has consequences, and as unrest surges in the factions all around her, Tris Prior must continue trying to save those she loves - and herself - while grappling with haunting questions of grief and forgiveness, identity and loyalty, politics and love.

    This was an excellent story. Although fiction, the story seems plausible to me.

    Emma Galvin's reading made the book come alive.

    New York Times best-selling author Laurie R. King garners widespread acclaim for her suspenseful novels rich with historical detail. Set in the vibrant Paris Jazz Age, The Bones of Paris introduces private investigator Harris Stuyvesant, an American agent who’s been given the plum assignment of locating beautiful young model Philippa Crosby. But when Philippa’s trail ends at the Théâtre du Grand-Guignol in Montmartre, Stuyvesant discovers a world where art meets sexual depravity - and where a savage killer lurks in the shadows.

    B. says: "Brilliant evocation of Paris in 1929"

    Would you try another book from Laurie R. King and/or Jefferson Mays?

    I double it.


    What could Laurie R. King have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Shortened it.


    Did The Bones of Paris inspire you to do anything?

    No


    Any additional comments?

    Jefferson Mays reads extremely fast many times, making it difficult to follow the story. It reminded me of commercials where, at the end, a person reads the mandated words at machine gun pace and in one breath.
