A Thousand Bones

A Thousand Bones

A woman cop.

A haunting memory....

The only female detective in the Miami PD's Homicide division, Joe Frye has memories that haunt her, and a past that not even her lover, detective Louis Kincaid, truly knows. It began when Joe was an ambitious rookie cop in a small Michigan town called Echo Bay....

The bones found in the woods were the first clue in a string of unimaginably brutal murders of young women. Plunged into a heated investigation -- and caught between the dictates of a reluctant local sheriff and the state police -- Joe soon uncovers the chilling truth: In the dead of winter in the Michigan woods, she must face down a predator who has chosen her as a worthy opponent -- or become his next victim.

Q. how did you come to write A Thousand Bones?

A. Our childhood vacations were spent "Up North," as Michiganders call it, so we knew we wanted to set a book in the beautiful Leelanau Peninsula. The story began with an image of a bone buries in the fall woods and everything built from there as we discovered characters, locales and clues as we progresses. The best finds came as we researched Native-American history and found the "Hunger Moon." Serenpidity and unplanned discoveries are the best part of writing. You never know where one small thing is going to lead you.
