Wisdom of the Bones

Innocence is so easy to kill.

Dallas, 1963: After being diagnosed with a terminal heart condition, homicide detective Ray Duval is trying to save one last life before he loses his own.

A killer is kidnapping young girls, and Duval has discovered a connection to a similar case from his hometown, some twenty-five years previously.

As another girl is taken, Duval learns that unless he solves the pattern within forty-eight hours, she will be murdered. One thing, however, stands in his way, which has thrown the city into chaos… the assassination of President John F. Kennedy.

A nerve-shredding, devastating suspense thriller from master storyteller Paul Christopher, perfect for fans of Michael Connelly, Jeffery Deaver and P. J. Tracy.
