The Bone Garden


A page turner from Tess Gerritsen my first one of this author. Julia is a divorcee and buys a new house in rural Massachusetts and while doing gardening she discovers a human skull. Forensic discovers that it is an almost 150 years old female who was probably murdered. The story then moves to the 1830 Aurnia Tate is about to give birth, she has her sister Rose with her, hospital is plagued with bed fever. Meanwhile Norris Marshall is pursuing his medical studies, the plot moves fast, there are a series of murders, Rose is on the run and Norris becomes suspect. The narrative juxtaposes from the 1830s to the present and one after another events take place fast. The end is a bit of anti climax. Goodreads 3/5
