The brilliant author of Fear Itself pulls readers into an intricate web of ritual killings orchestrated by an evil pair of murderers who always manage to be one step ahead of the law.

Former FBI Special Agent E.L. Pender may be retired, but he jumps at the chance to help solve a particularly gruesome series of crimes in the U.S. Virgin Islands.

This is no ordinary case, seeing as the right hand on each body in the string of murders is missing. The police want to keep the existence of a serial killer under wraps; they hope to solve the crime before a stampede sets in. Meanwhile, Pender is convinced the killer must be the husband of the last victim and sets out to capture him, but he's only partly right. The husband is connected to the case, but the real murderers are a cunning husband-and-wife team of archeologists who believe that if they breathe in their victim's last breath they will live forever.

Never before has Pender come up against such savvy, diabolical opponents. From one trail of dead ends to another, readers will feel Pender's fever to prevent more murders from occurring, and his sheer panic when he can't. Twenty-Seven Bones is that most quintessential of thrilling reads, always providing a visceral experience of chills and excitement. Download and start listening now!

    " This is quite creepy so if you get the eebie-jeebies easily this is not for you! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Eva | 2/15/2014

    " I love the other E.L. Pender books but this one was a rough read for me. I am glad I am done. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sunset Sealy | 2/11/2014

    " A little anti-climatic to me personally. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jordan | 2/10/2014

    " Meh. You know I love serial killers but this book didn't really do anything much for me. It felt a little forced like he had a great idea but it could only take him so far and to make a novel he needed to cobble together some extras. The audiobook reader guy, while amazing at narrating The First 48 on A&E, tries to do voices for each character but can't seem to keep them straight and he also seems slightly bored. It's as though he doesn't really like the book he's reading and it seems to come through. I can't blame him. I stuck it out but only because I need the book for a couple reading challenges I'm involved in. "

    " I can honestly say that not a single page of this book was boring. It's well written and as creepy as hell at times. But as long as the good guys win I'm satisfied :) "

    " Many books have been written about serial killers and I have read some of them. This book was a good thriller although not terrifying. There were some things that made me think "NO, WAY, NOT FEASIBLE!" Even so it was still an enjoyable read. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Juliakmiller | 7/5/2013

    " I listened to this on tape driving to work. I didn't like it much at first - thought it was a little too graphic for me. But as the book went along, it got better. It was still pretty obvious what was going to happen. "
