Twenty year old Finley Montgomery has grown up being visited by people who others can’t see and haunted by prophetic dreams. She has no control over what’s going on with her and is lost with no one to understand it. Her mother had taken her away from the Hollows and her grandmother Eloise Montgomery but now Finley knows it’s time to return and learn how to control her psychic abilities.
Merri Gleason’s husband, Wolf, surprised the family with a trip to the Hollows. While Wolf was out hiking with the kids they were attacked and Wolf and his son were shot while their daughter Abbey was taken. Now several months later and down to her last bit of hope Merri has decided to hire detective Jones Cooper who sometimes works with psychic Eloise Montgomery. Eloise and her granddaughter find themselves caught up in trying to solve Abbey’s disappearance.
Ink and Bone is part of a series of books by Lisa Unger that feature the Hollows and former detective now turned investigator Jones Cooper and psychic Eloise Montgomery. This is the first of these books I’ve read and I do believe it read fine as a standalone novel.
This would be another definite page turner of a book as you follow along with a wide range of characters looking to solve the disappearances at the place called the Hollows. Finley is a rather colorful character as she’s grown up dealing with these powers all on her own and now finding herself with her grandmother. The family of the missing girl all had their own struggles as they have tried to cope and not fall apart each day that their daughter has been missing.
I loved the added touch of the paranormal brought into this thriller. Different from your normal follow the clues that police or investigators find in a read we are following along with Finley and her visions which even she sometimes doesn’t know what is real or not.
Overall, an engaging thriller with paranormal psychic elements. Interesting case with interesting characters involved. One that I’d recommend checking out.
I received an advance copy from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
