Publisher's Summary

The brilliant author of Fear Itself pulls readers into an intricate web of ritual killings orchestrated by an evil pair of murderers who always manage to be one step ahead of the law.

Former FBI Special Agent E.L. Pender may be retired, but he jumps at the chance to help solve a particularly gruesome series of crimes in the U.S. Virgin Islands.

This is no ordinary case, seeing as the right hand on each body in the string of murders is missing. The police want to keep the existence of a serial killer under wraps; they hope to solve the crime before a stampede sets in. Meanwhile, Pender is convinced the killer must be the husband of the last victim and sets out to capture him, but he's only partly right. The husband is connected to the case, but the real murderers are a cunning husband-and-wife team of archeologists who believe that if they breathe in their victim's last breath they will live forever.

Never before has Pender come up against such savvy, diabolical opponents. From one trail of dead ends to another, readers will feel Pender's fever to prevent more murders from occurring, and his sheer panic when he can't. Twenty-Seven Bones is that most quintessential of thrilling reads, always providing a visceral experience of chills and excitement.

    "Hard to follow"

    I was very disappointed when I listened to this book by one of my favorite authors. The book was very slow moving and hard to follow. I didn't get involved with any of the characters at all. After a while I couldn't wait for it to end.

    "Very Good Book"

    The description here on Audible, doesn't do this book justice. It was while I was at a bookstroe that I read the cover of the book (or rather the jacket) and found out how good it sounded. I came right home and began listening to it. Great Ending!!
