As a young girl, Skye Cree was brutally assaulted by Ronny Wayne Whitfield. But, Skye is a survivor, and with her Nez Perce spirit guide, the wolf Kiya, she is, as a young women, determined to use her ability to protect others. Traumatized by the childhood incident, Skye avoids intimate contact with men until she saves Josh Anders, CEO of a game company, from muggers, and sparks fly between them. For the first time in her adult life, Skye is in love. But that love is threatened when she learns that Whitfield is out of jail, and young girls are going missing.
The Bones of Others by Vickie McKeehan tells the story of Skye and Josh as they vow to track Whitfield down and bring him to justice. As they peer deeper into the missing person cases, though, they discover that it’s more than just a single predator attacking young women, they find an international trafficking operation involving dozens. McKennan does a fantastic job of keeping a reader guessing until the end—will Skye and Josh prevail, or will they too become victims? Though this story contains elements of the supernatural, it is told as a mystery thriller, complete with enough action to appeal to the most rabid fight junkie. At the same time, the author handles Skye’s awakening feelings for Josh with astonishing tenderness.
Once you start reading this book, you won’t be able to put it down. I look forward to further adventures of these two extremely likeable characters.
I give McKeehan four stars for this one.
