Présentation de l'éditeur

Publishers Weekly Book of the Year!
Shamus Award finalist!

"Island of Bones opens like a hurricane and blows you away through the final page. It's a major league thriller that is hard to stop reading." -- Robert B. Parker

In the wake of a hurricane a tiny skull washes up in front of detective Louis Kincaid's cottage. Days later, the bullet-riddled body of a woman surfaces on a nearby island. She has no identification...except for a unique coral ring. Sensing a connection, Louis begins his investigation, a search for the truth that will lead him down a trail of secrets and lies—to the Island of Bones, where evil never dies and the living never escape.

"The tension builds to a near palpable level as Kincaid uncovers secrets as dark and warped as the primal landscape. World-weary, contemplative Mel Landeta is the perfect foil for Kincaid, a true man of action. Their camaraderie, combined with Parrish's crisp dialogue and skill at stringing out the suspense, are what make this carefully constructed mystery so absorbing. Parrish's second Kincaid mystery, Dead of Winter, earned a nomination for an Edgar, and this book merits another. Anyone who has read Parrish's mysteries will undoubtedly clamor for this one." -- Publishers Weekly (starred review)

While there is plenty of mystery, page-turning suspense and all the thriller aspects---more than anything, P.J. Parrish's "Island of Bones" is a marvelously intriguing tale peopled with powerfully motivated characters.
A hurricane deposits a baby's scull at PI, Louis Kincaid's beach bungalow. Days later, a woman's body washes up nearby. Are these two related to the disappearances of seven young women from the area over a thirty-five year period?
Ft. Myers Police Chief Al Horton feels Louis can be useful on the high profile case by "baby-sitting" his Chief of Detectives (Mel Landeta), who appears to be a serious burnout case.
Louis's client fears her father (librarian Frank Woods) is somehow involved with the missing women. Newspaper clippings she finds in his possession and his flight appear to confirm her worries. Is he a serial killer, where are the bodies and where is Frank?
Adroitly plotted, richly textured, a strong sense of place and smartly written, "Island of Bones" seizes the reader and keeps you immersed.
The ending is a shocker as the past melds into the present. The journey is irresistible, compelling and rings true.
Louis is a resourceful, self-reliant, persuasive lead character. As he doggedly follows the trail and clues, he learns not everyone is what they appear to be and surprising allegiances are formed.
"This place is built on skeletons, young man. Millions of humans, millions of sea animals, dead and gone. Florida is just one long island of bones."

Par Brenda - Publié sur
I have had the pleasure of reading this book before it was available and I was blown away. From page one this book grabs you and will not let you go until the final page. The opening scene of a young woman fleeing an unknown but utterly terrifying pursuer gave me chills. I actually felt her fear and when she was shot, heard the bullet, saw her stumble and felt the rain as it dripped off her lifeless body. It just gets better from there. I actually hated the new boy on the block, Mel Landata, when he was introduced to Louis. What a pompous, self-involved idiot! Definitely hoped he would meet a very messy end. Boy was I wrong! After finding out what makes Mel tick, he became one of my favorites. Perfectly suited to be a close friend of Louis.
The perilous journey to discover who the victim was brings to light numerous similiar incidents of young women who disappear -- where they are found and their ultimate condition is both a shock and a surprise. The plotting and character development is superb. The red herrings and subterfuge so convincingly laid out you don't see the trap until it's sprang. Nobody is who you think they are -- the real evil is hidden from sight until the final and explosive end.
If I could give this book more then 5 stars I would. I can not recommend this book more highly nor state with more passion my belief it is a MUST for any fan of mystery/suspense novels. Keep them coming PJ! Journeys with Kincaid are always an exciting ride.

P.J. Parrish has once again written a great Louis Kincaid mystery/thriller. I've been hooked on Louis' story from the beginning and just continue to enjoy with each novel. He's such a fascinating, likable character, whom I enjoy reading about through each adventure. His relationship with Landetta, while at first was a bit tough going turned out to be something good for both of them. I certainly hope they come together again in future novels to solve cases. As for the story of the family on the island, after a while I kind of figured some things out, but not the "why". I never saw the "why" coming. It was so compelling and in many ways sad, but a very interesting plot twist.
For me, this isn't the best from P.J. Parrish, but it's definitely a great addition to the Louis Kincaid series. I look forward to more...hopefully soon.
Island of Bones is a winner.

Once again Florida is recovering from the devastation of a hurricane and Private Investigator Louis Kincaid is in the midst of it. While canvassing the damage that the hurricane has left behind, Kincaid stumbles upon a baby's skull amongst the debris. The skull appears to be old. The police are too involved with regaining order after the devastation of the hurricane to care much about where the old skull came from or to whom it belonged. Yet, Kincaid seems drawn to the remains and is determined to find their origins and give the child a proper resting place.

The skull of a child isn't the only gruesome thing that washes ashore on the Florida coast; during the hurricane aftermath clean up, the police discover the body of a woman. Undermanned, the local authorities call upon Kincaid for help with the murder investigation. Just when it seems that things could not get any stranger, a woman seeks to hire Kincaid to investigate her father, whom she believes may be involved with the murder of the discovered woman. However, Kincaid soon discovers some hidden secrets of the man he is investigating that go beyond his wildest dreams. At first Kincaid believes that he has three separate cases on his hands until he slowly uncovers the shocking truth that links them all.

THE ISLAND OF BONES by P.J. Parrish is a compelling thriller that takes many delicious twists and turns. The character of Private Investigator Louis Kincaid is a refreshing change from the brooding stereotypical investigator so often found in novels. Kincaid is a complex, three - dimensional character with realistic flaws. The novel itself is also one that is outside the box of the "typical" mystery. The characters are vivid and the story line unique. Although ISLAND OF BONES is the fifth installment in the Louis Kincaid mysteries, it surely is a standalone novel that will please both long standing Kincaid fans as well as those new to the character.

This book hooks you from the first page and doesn't let you go until the very last word. Just when I thought I was ahead of Louis Kincaid in figuring out what was going on, I found out that both he and I were way off. There are no cheats in this story--the intricate and unexpected plot twists will make you feel like you're on a roller coaster, and you won't want the ride to end. I literally had to make myself put the book down occasionally so I wouldn't get to the end too soon--I wanted to savor the experience as long as I could. Island of Bones is the best mystery/thriller I've read in a very long while, perhaps the best I've ever read. Although each book in the Louis Kincaid series can stand alone (reading them in order is helpful), this is the best yet from the writing team of P.J. Parrish. I look forward to reading much more from them in years to come.
