Emily Littlejohn – Inherit the Bones


I couldn’t put downInherit the Bones. Small town Colorado police detective Gemma Monroe is a human and fallible heroine I can’t wait to meet again, and Littlejohn’s prose is lyrical and gripping – the book – is a sure bet for one of the finest debut novels of the year. (Deborah Crombie)

Secrets and lies cant stay buried forever in Cedar Valley.

In the summer, hikers and campers pack the small Colorado towns meadows and fields. And in the winter, skiers and snowboarders take over the mountains. Season by season, year after year, time passes, and the lies, like the aspens and evergreens that surround the town, take root and spread deep.

Now, someone has uncovered the lies, and it is his murder that continues a chain of events that began almost 40 years ago. Detective Gemma Monroes investigation takes her from the seedy grounds of a traveling circus to the powerful homes of those who would control Cedar Valleys future.

Six months pregnant, with a partner she cant trust and colleagues who know more than theyre saying, Gemma tracks a killer who will stop at nothing to keep those secrets buried.

Beautifully written, with a riveting plot and a richly drawn cast of characters,Inherit the Bonesis a mesmerizing debut from Emily Littlejohn.
