Bone on Bone, the next powerful chapter in Pulitzer
Prize-winner Julia Keller's beloved Bell Elkins series,
sends readers headlong into the thick of a mystery as young
as today's headlines -- but as old as the mountains that
hold these lives in a tight grip.
How far would you go for someone you love? Would you die?
Would you kill? After a three-year prison sentence, Bell
Elkins is back in Acker's Gap. And she finds herself in the
white-hot center of a complicated and deadly case -- even as
she comes to terms with one last, devastating secret of her own.
A prominent local family has fallen victim to the same
sickness that infects the whole region: drug addiction. With
mother against father, child against parent, and tensions
that lead inexorably to tragedy, they are trapped in a grim,
hopeless struggle with nowhere to turn.
Bell has lost her job as prosecutor -- but not her affection
for her ragtag, hard-luck hometown. Teamed up with former
Deputy Jake Oakes, who battles his own demons as he adjusts
to life as a paraplegic, and aided by the new prosecutor,
Rhonda Lovejoy, Bell tackles a case as poignant as it is
perilous, as heartbreaking as it is challenging.
