When two young boys discover human bones buried beneath a tree in a trailer park, Detective Josie Quinn races to join her team at the scene.

Josie’s past crashes into her present when a rare dental condition confirms the bones belong to a teenage foster-child who was murdered 30 years ago. A girl named Belinda Rose.

Book was great, twisry, interesting. Reader was much better too although she still doesn't pronounce her "t"s. She has a lot of trouble with syllable placing but her voice usage is very good, much improved.

When a demolition crew uncovers several bodies inside the walls of a house where serial killer Frank J. Remy once lived, the discovery sends shock waves through the Savannah Police Department. All of the bodies were hidden before Remy's imprisonment and subsequent death thirty-six years earlier - except for one belonging to a missing child. Homicide partners Elise Sandburg and David Gould were the Savannah PD's dream team, solving uncrackable crimes and catching killers.

A very meaningful And timely book. I not only enjoyed the story and all the characters but found myself emotionally and intellectually involved with both sorrow and joy and prayers to be a better person. Mr. Freeman you have managed to put into words the fact that we are all alike in the beginning and in our hearts. Hopefully we can learn to keep that thought in our hearts and minds as we go through our lives. Thank You

Three went in; one came out. For five years, no trace has been found of two high-school friends who went hiking in the woods near Nashville. The third teen, Amber Ryder, was discovered at the bottom of a ravine with a broken arm, head trauma - and zero memory of the horror that put her there.

Everyone knew Len Dreyer, a handyman for hire in the Park near Niniltna, Alaska, but no one knew anything else about him. Even Kate Shugak, who was planning to ask him to help build a small second cabin on her property, knew him. But she, the Park's unofficial P.I., seems to have known less about him than anyone.

Set in Alaska, Edgar Award-winner Dana Stabenow's novels combine a rich portrait of life in the frozen north with taut suspense and top-notch characters. In this latest installment in the Kate Shugak series, the possibility of drilling for oil in a wildlife preserve near the home of the dynamic Aleutian P.I. has battle lines drawn. Things heat up when a ranger at the preserve loses his job for political reasons, but when a passionate conservation spokesperson is found poisoned, the war begins in earnest.

Alaska State Trooper Jim Chopin, Kate's best friend, needs her to help him work a new case.

I've read the entire series up to this point and plan to read all Dana's books. Her stories are interesting, and run the Gambit between funny and tragic. I experienced both laughter and tears during this story, so good.
