Hilary and Mark Bradley are trapped in a web of suspicion. Last year, accusations of a torrid affair with a student cost Mark his teaching job and made the young couple into outcasts in their remote island town off the Lake Michigan coast. Now another teenage girl is found dead on a deserted beach... and once again, Mark faces a hostile town convinced of his guilt.

Hilary Bradley is determined to prove that Mark is innocent, but she's on a lonely, dangerous quest. Even when she discovers that the murdered girl was witness to a horrific crime years earlier, the police are certain she's throwing up a smoke screen to protect her husband. Only a quirky detective named Cab Bolton seems willing to believe Hilary's story.

Hilary and Cab soon find that people in this community are willing to kill to keep their secrets hidden - and to make sure Mark doesn't get away with murder. And with each shocking revelation, even Hilary begins to wonder whether her husband is truly innocent.

Freeman's first stand-alone thriller since his Stride novels is a knockout.

    " Have read all his previous books, which are the Jonathan Stride series and great books which I would highly recommend, so this one was a first for me, as it had a new lead character, Cab Bolton, as the lead investigator here, but got to know him pretty quickly and he's a keeper. The story starts with a fire in a house six years previously, where a young girl had crept in to feed a kitten and almost burnt to death in what was the murder of a mother and her two boys by arson. Fast forward six years and the girl herself is now murdered. The chief suspect is a teacher, who was one a golf pro, and he was accused of having an affair with the girls sister when he taught her at high school. So, they were just allegations and the girl herself denied them, but now the reader wonders if there was truth in it and is this man really a suspect? His wife is totally convinced of his innocence and sets out to prove it, pointing Cab in another direction, when she starts to hear stories from the girls past and what really happened in The Bone House on the night of the fire. Great read, will keep you guessing to the very end. "

    " A riveting, well written psychological thriller with well developed characters I had difficulty putting down. A well liked teacher is falsely accused of having a torrid affair with a student. Her sister is found dead on a beach in Florida near where the teacher and his wife are staying. As the story progresses, the teacher is not the one who has gotten away with murder. Nicely done. "

    " Spannend, (te?) sympathieke hoofdrolspelers. Man wordt verdacht van aanranding en later ook van moord op een jong meisje, vrouw blijft in zijn onschuld geloven. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Andy | 12/13/2013

    " The Bone House is a very good murder mystery with multiple story lines and complex characters. Most of the story takes place in northern Wisconsin and is described in enough detail to make me want to visit some day. It's a whodunnit that you won't get until nearing the end. "
