Bone White reintroduces readers to former NYPD Detective Sullivan Leary who is drawn back to Mundy’s Landing following a gruesome discovery. At Mundy’s Landing there is also someone trying to rediscover her family background-Emerson Mundy. Emerson is drawn due to some interesting century old family letters and she wants to know more about her family.

The mystery behind the gruesome discovery and how it connects to the letters is interesting and not expected. It works well in a small town like Mundy’s Landing. It is small enough where everyone knows everyone but big enough that it still creates a mystery for some of its residents and guests. The character development of Emerson is creative, including a genetic trait that ends up playing a huge role in the book. It was a great example of how something small ends up playing a huge role.

In looking back, I feel that I should have picked up on the whodunit before it was told. This is a great testament to the author’s creativity. I would recommend that readers read the other Mundy Landing series before picking up Bone White. I had not and feel like I am missing out on some of the character development of Sullivan Leary and other characters in the town.
