Publisher's Summary

Into the house. Down the stairs. Through the dripping dark of the cellar. Someone is there. Someone that shouldn't be there. As a building awaits demolition, a horrifying discovery is made inside the basement: a cage made of human bones - with a terrified, feral child lurking within. Unbeknownst to DI Phil Brennan and psychologist Marina Esposito, they have disturbed a killer who has been operating undetected for 30 years. A killer who wants that boy back.

But the cage of bones is also a box of secrets - secrets linking Brennan to the madman in their midst. With the death toll rising and the city reeling in terror, Brennan and Marina race to expose a predator more soullessly evil than any they've ever faced - one who is hiding in plain sight.

Very well narrated,

If you could sum up Cage of Bones in three words, what would they be?

edge of seat

What was one of the most memorable moments of Cage of Bones?

The twists and turns that constantly occur throughout the book. You are lead to think the direction is one way and then are disabused of that notion.

What about Martyn Waites’s performance did you like?

Very well narrated, though the acent drifted all around the north east of England at times. However the overal naration was superb, certainly an edge of seat performance.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Yes but I can't say without ruining a major plot line.

Any additional comments?

This is the first Tania Carver novel I have listened to, but I can guarantee it won't be the last.

certainly is a thriller......

Ms Tania & Mr Carver are improving with each book they write. If you like your plots fast moving, a bit horrific, with characters you can become familiar with in a series and like then this is for you. No great piece of literature but it doesn't matter if you're a lover of thriller and suspense genre and it is actually quite well written. The book will keep your attention from the get go and builds to a climax that just maybe you can see coming and the ending is quite satisfying. Martyn Waites, as narrator, does an exemplary job with a not quite British but more of an international accent. I will watch for more of his. Recommended for all thriller lovers.

I just HAD to know....

If you could sum up Cage of Bones in three words, what would they be?

Captivating,detailed and scary.

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

Yes.Wondering why they kept the child in such a way had me listening to this book on my iPod everywhere I went to find out.

Which scene was your favorite?

When the cage was being described.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes.

Any additional comments?

I also liked the scene when the social worker was talking to the feral child for the first time.

Amazing!

This book was fantastic! I wasn’t able to predict all of the twists the plot took, which I enjoy. I did not realize this is the third book in a series, however you can read this without reading the other two. The author gives you just enough information to understand the character’s backstories without giving away the plot of the first two books. I will definitely be reading the rest of this series!

Thought it Would Be Better

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

There was a decent story here but it took too long to tell I think. It was hard to follow in places. I don't feel the credit was wasted but I hadn't enjoyed it as much as I expected too.

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

It moved too slow in places, too much time spent on elements that did not matter as much.

Would you listen to another book narrated by Martyn Waites?

Maybe.

Did Cage of Bones inspire you to do anything?

No.

Fantastic story.

I am reading Tania Carvers books. This is the fourth book in the series of five and it lives up to the books, it gets you so engrossed in what is happening the same as reading the books. I love the main characters, as I am reading the books I now all about them. The beginning of the story makes you sit up and wonder wow what is going on, love it.
