The Bone Garden-Book Review
The West End Reaper terrorizes 19th century Boston. Is it man or monster behind the cape? How is the reaper related to the body found in Julia Hamill's garden in the 21st?
Tess Gerritson tries her hand at historical fiction with a good dose of what she is known for, medical mystery. This time, however, the medicine, the autopsies, and the murders take place in the mid 1800's.
Fast paced, gorey and creepy, but a little slow during the present day chapters. Thankfully, these are kept to a minimum. The book would have been fine without them. Otherwise, a fun book with an interesting plot line. Different from her previous books, but just as entertaining.
