2014 book 156

M.J. McGrath's The Bone Seeker
McGrath's latest Edie Kiglatuk mystery (after White Heat and The Boy in the Snow) finds Edie officially working for the short-handed police after one of her students is murdered, in a case that may tie in to some very crazy government goings-on, though there are plenty of suspects. Like the previous books in this series, there is a LOT going on, but the cultural stuff is so well-done that it doesn't even matter. Edie and her family and friends are amazingly compelling. The sections from the POV of a Guatemalan lawyer are a bit of a weak spot in the first half, but as things start to come together, I was riveted. I really enjoy this series, and can't wait to see where it goes next. B/B+.

A review copy was provided by the publisher. This book will be released on July 24th.
