Buried bodies. Rusted cars. Burned wallets. Hiding from her past, Trina Pierce is now Charlotte Rowe living outside a small town in the Arizona desert. Her house is a small fortress of bullet-proof glass with a high-tech security system. Only Charlotte’s therapist knows she was the Burning Girl, the abducted child who disappeared with the serial killers Abigail and Daniel Banning. After seven years of burning the wallets, jewelry, and personal belongings of the Bannings’ victims, little Trina is rescued, but the scars of that life remain with her. Even after changing her identity, a mad stalker and an experimental drug forces Charlotte to confront her biggest fear – being controlled by others. Returning to the California town where she went to high school, she now must learn about the drug that gives her the ability to fight off attackers with inordinate strength while figuring out how she can take back her own life.
A mystery/thriller with a bit of a twist, Christopher Rice’s Bone Music is a promising start to a new series. The story is fast-paced with solid character development. Rice has become an author who can stand on his own outside of the shadows of his parent’s success as writers.
