Called in to investigate the disappearance of a young couple during a violent storm, Paula Maguire, forensic psychologist, has mixed feelings about going back to Bone Island. Her last family holiday as a child was spent on its beautiful, remote beaches and returning brings back haunting memories of her long-lost mother.
It soon becomes clear that outsiders aren't welcome on the island, and with no choice but to investigate the local community, Paula soon suspects foul play, realising that the islanders are hiding secrets from her, and each other.
With another storm fast approaching, Paula is faced with a choice. Leave alive or risk being trapped with a killer on an inescapable island, as the blood tide rushes in...
Book 5 in the Paula Maguire series. This is a series I have loved following. I love the character that Paula has become. And have enjoyed this book just as much as the other 4.
She certainly doesn't have the perfect private life, and it gets twisted up in work life an awful lot. She is still messed up in searching for clues of her missing mother.
Single mother of a little girl, the reasons I won't mention here just in case you have not read the previous books.
Paula is asked to help on a missing persons case, which sees her traveling to Bone Island. Just it's name gives you the creeps.
It's another complex case, and as always things don't go to plan, nothing is straight forward and Paula finds herself in the middle of a sticky mess.
It's another tense page turner, and leaves you wanting to turn the pages to see what is happening.
I can't wait for more from Paula, she's certainly a great character.
