    Excellent Writer The only reason I didn't give this exciting ride of a book a 5 is I knew who the killer was early on in the book. This is a page turner serial killer thriller. I highly recommend it! Excellent Writer The only reason I didn't give this exciting ride of a book a 5 is I knew who the killer was early on in the book. This is a page turner serial killer thriller.

    WOW! This series just gets better and better. This book delves into the sick mind of a serial killer. Luke didn’t have any idea that his sister was murdered at the hands of a serial killer until he begins getting taunting letters from the killer. Oh my! It would be horrible enough to deal with the murder of such a young innocent, even worse if the crime went unsolved. But to be taunted by a serial killer taking credit for her murder over a decade after her death would be an absolute horror. Espec WOW! This series just gets better and better.

But to be taunted by a serial killer taking credit for her murder over a decade after her death would be an absolute horror. Especially as more details of the murders come to light. The pain the victims endured during their final hours would be unthinkable. Stacy M. Jones has written a riveting and enthralling mystery/thriller that was near impossible to put down even to eat and sleep. I am anxious to post this review and then begin reading the third book in the series.

    I read the book blurb about The Bone Harvest and I had to read it. No, I have not read Book 1, and that didn't matter. That's important to me because I don't like to feel like I am missing part of the story. A lot of the characters know each other from life before this story, but you soon feel a part of the crowd. Stacy Jones introduces you to characters you will like, or maybe NOT, but you will remember them. The campuses visited by the team helping Luke become alive when she describes them.

    Good but could be better Initially the title is what lured me to.the books description. The story has good premise, a serial killer who wants to be found after 23 years starts taunting one of his victims brother, who is a police detective. Brother has friends and girlfriend who are private investigator s who help. That being said parts of the book are intriguing and interesting that I couldn't put it down, other parts are predictable and appear to be rushed or from an inexperienced writer.

    Detective Luke Morgan has been haunted for years by his sister’s unsolved murder. He has begun receiving letters that appear to be sent by the killer. Luke and his team finally have the opportunity to find justice for all the victims of this serial killer. This book was an attention grabber from the very beginning. The multiple strands of the investigation were very interesting and led to a satisfying conclusion.

    This is a good book to read for pleasure. It kept my interest throughout. The investigation takes place on a number of fronts with a number of detectives and PIs. Even so, it was easy to keep all that was happening straight. Stacey M. Jones isn’t quite there yet, but I would not be surprised if the day comes when she is among my favorite writers.

    “Lily wasn’t the first. She won’t be the last.” And so, it begins. Luke, Cooper and Riley start looking. What they find is much more than they bargained on. I enjoyed the story and recommend the book.

    The Bone Harvest is a second private eye Riley Sullivan mystery after Deadly Sins. I enjoyed Deadly Sins a lot, and thought it was a very good twisty and suspenseful PI thriller/romantic suspense, and was looking forward to read the second case for Riley, her private eye partner Cooper, and her boyfriend/Little Rock detective Lucas "Luke" Morgan. This time they investigate the cold cases of missing college students, all black female freshmen, one of them Luke's little sister Lily, who was murder The Bone Harvest is a second private eye Riley Sullivan mystery after Deadly Sins. I enjoyed Deadly Sins a lot, and thought it was a very good twisty and suspenseful PI thriller/romantic suspense, and was looking forward to read the second case for Riley, her private eye partner Cooper, and her boyfriend/Little Rock detective Lucas "Luke" Morgan. This time they investigate the cold cases of missing college students, all black female freshmen, one of them Luke's little sister Lily, who was murdered in 2002 when she was studying in Fayetteville in the University of Arkansas. 17 years after that Luke starts to get letters from a sender who claims to have murdered Lily and several others, and threatens to murder again. Soon, through the alleged serial killer's letters and their own investigation, Riley, Cooper, and Luke know of other cases that are similar to Lily. Riley goes to her hometown of Troy, Cooper goes to Atlanta to investigate in Chamblee University, and Luke goes to Fayetteville, where the serial killer, later known as The Professor, threatens to strike again. I'm not really a reader of serial killer thrillers, and when I think of fictional serial killers my mind goes to Hannibal Lecter, the Anthony Hopkins version, or perhaps the tv-series Following's main villain. And those characters are portrayed as highly intellectual and dangerous. The Professor shows that fictional serial killers can also be pathetic, and surprisingly inept in fooling the investigators they themselves invited to a game of cat and mouse. Even though The Professor has some wins, Riley, Cooper, and Luke are soon on the trail to catch Lily's murderer. Reading Deadly Sins made me care of the characters, especially Riley, and that is why I enjoyed reading this second instalment in the series and am looking forward to the upcoming third, which seems to focus more on Cooper. I was part of the author's Advanced Reading Team, so I read an earlier version of the thriller.

    Riley (former journalist, now PI) has just recovered from some very traumatic experiences when her boyfriend Luke (a homicide detective) receives a letter from someone who claims to be a serial killer that murdered his sister 20 years ago. More letters follow and of course they investigate those claims that turn out to be very plausible. Now they have to discover his identity.

More letters follow and of course they investigate those claims that turn out to be very plausible. Now they have to discover his identity. I hadn't read the first book, but this can be very well be read as a standalone. The characters are all very sympathetic and easy to identify with. There ate several detectives and when they all split up to investigate in different parts of the country, it can be a bit confusing when they change POV with every chapter. The book focuses on the actual investigation and as a reader you manage to see the bigger picture before the detectives themselves, but still don't know who he is. The concept of a bored serial killer who plays games with the police isn't new and although I doubt if it happens as frequently in reality as in books, it does happen. Less believable is the large role the "amateurs" are so effortlessly given by the official police, even if they are retired officers or family. Another thing that bugs me -and it has nothing to do with this book in particular, but with reality itself- is that in the USA you can still buy so called burner phones (pay and go type) without having to register. In belgium it was made law, immediately after the terrorist bombings in Brussels, to register all new and existing prepaid phones. I really did enjoy this book. It is well written and a pleasant thriller. I certainly will read the other books in this series when they're released. I received a free arc, but this is my own honest review.

    I've been dying for the second installment in the Riley series. It was worth the wait! I could not put it down! One of the reasons I loved this book so much - other than the author's really direct way of writing that draws you in without the fluff or padding - is that her characters are real. You think about them when you're done. You care what happens to them. They are flawed and messy and good people. Instead of another serial killer book about a monster killer, The Bone Harvest, shows you how I've been dying for the second installment in the Riley series. It was worth the wait!

Instead of another serial killer book about a monster killer, The Bone Harvest, shows you how easily killers walk among us. My husband is a detective and not a reader at all, but he loves the Riley series. After we read I was like how did he get away with it for so long? My husband said its because of little misses like Ms. Jones shows and that some serial killers are narcissistic and think they are smarter than everyone, which is what does them in. One reviewer noted the killer in inept. I think instead its truer to life - he was overconfident. If he was inept he couldn't have gotten away undetected for so long. But it's gritty, without being gross, and real! I also loved that the first in the series was focused on Riley, second Luke and third will be Cooper. Ms. Jones has a way of having these three really different main characters, who balance each other and are equally enjoyable.

    Murders have happened at various colleges at Halloween - but no-one has noticed. The murderer has gotten bored and sent Luke a letter - even letting him know where the next one will be. There's no way that the team can automatically believe the claims and so they split the tasks needed to verify the letters - investigating deaths in various states. It's not a violent book and not all the bodies are found. The characters are well written and the story keeps you guessing.

    This is not an easy book to read about a seriel killer. The description of the murders is not gross, however. It is quite the ride as so many people work to determine the killer. They have to do a lot of work so that makes the book long. There are a few swear words so I marked it down 1 star. I do like Ms. Jones writing style. The whole story line is excellent & I didn't figure out who the killer was. I received an ARC. This is my voluntary, honest opinion. This is not an easy book to read about a seriel killer.

    Elaborate Such an elaborate path to catch a serial killer. So many people involved, a news reporter, a cold case cop and a P. I. A once a year killer is something I've never read before but a crime spree that went on for 23 years baffles the mind. Guess I just didn't get it.
