The Bones Will Speak (A Gwen Marcey Novel) by Carrie Stuart Parks

Book Description:  A killer with a penchant for torture has taken notice of forensic expert Gwen Marcey . . . and her daughter.
When Gwen Marcey’s dog comes home with a human skull and then leads her to a cabin in the woods near her Montana home, she realizes there’s a serial killer in her community. And when she finds a tortured young girl clinging to life on the cabin floor, she knows this killer is a lunatic.
Yet what unsettles Gwen most is that the victim looks uncannily like her daughter.
The search for the torturer leads back in time to a neo-Nazi bombing in Washington state—a bombing with only one connection to Montana: Gwen. The group has a race-not-grace model of salvation . . . and they’ve marked Gwen as a race traitor.
When it becomes clear that the killer has a score to settle, Gwen finds herself in a battle against time. She will have to use all of her forensic skills to find the killer before he can carry out his threat to destroy her—and the only family she has left.

My Thoughts:  Having read Ms. Parks first book, A Cry From the Dust, I was excited to read, The Bones Will Speak.  Just love these titles!  The titles of these books "grab" me more than the description of the books.
Now, I read the first book so I already know Gwen and a little about her.  Such as she is a forensic artist and recreates events from history.  Such an interesting job!
I have to say that I love the thrills that Ms. Parks so aptly describes in this book.   To me, this involved story had "way more" thrills and chills than the first book.  Not bad like a horror show but just enough thrills and chills to make me sit on the edge of my seat.  Yeah, that kind!  That leaves the reader slightly breathless from reading too fast.
The storyline in this book was interesting since it deals with Marcey and her daughter more directly than the first story.  
I loved this read and if you, reader, enjoy a christian thrills and chills kind.of.read then this is the read for you!
