[PDF DOWNLOAD] Boneyard Kelly Jones #2
Simple writing Average story Good afternoon s read I like spunky female investigators and savvy serial killers This book didn t have either After almost 400 pages I didn t really care if the killers got caught or whether the heroine gave up her ob at the FBI and entered private security Does everyone want to be in Blackwater I suppose it was an okay book "But What Bothered Me Was The Switch In The Prose "what bothered me was the switch in the prose eyes are we seeing the world through nowI know it wasn t written in first person but it felt like a chunk of the book expressed things through Kelly s eyes the killer s and the stalker sthe important people And then the author gave us a glimpse into Monica s mind who I really didn t care that much about There was a whole sort of merry go round narrration going on that messed up everything for me I guess I should find a review with spoilers that will tell me how the story went down The Boneyard by Michelle GagnonBook 2 in the Kelly Jones series3 starsSynopsisFollowing the discovery of a mass grave FBI Agent Kelly Jones is on the trail of two separate killers and at the same time must cope with urisdictional issues rival police officers and a suspicious cover up To top it all off she is in a race against time to save the life of the latest victimReviewFollowing my enjoyment of the first book in the series I had built up certain expectations with regard to this installment but was severely disappointed The plot fails to live up to its potential and there is one thread that remains unresolved at the rather lackadaisical conclusionThe character development is virtually non existent aside from Jack and Kelly who have gone from mere acuaintances to a fully fledged couple with absolutely no buildup of their relationship the other characters are completely one dimensional The identity of the primary killer is obvious from the very beginning due to an insufficient suspect pool and an excessive number of details provided regarding his personal life Moreover there is no explanation for the motivation behind his crimesThe writing flows smoothly but lacks the background detail and descriptions that made the first book so engrossing Hopefully the next one will be better I like forensic mysteries ESPECIALLY ONES THAT CONTAIN BONES NOT ones that contain bones Not why and I don t mind the gory mysteries either but bones how the scientists pry the truth from them and what they can tell a forensic anthropologist about a person is extremely interestingThis is a bone mystery Takes place in Vermont Massachusetts and a little bit in New York state That s one of the parts I didn t totally love.

About the novel How some of the Massachusetts government was portrayed Yes I am aware that the Mass government can suck sometimes that the forensic labs in the state haven t always been the best managed but it s not like the Mass lab is the only one in the country that is totally and utterly behind in processing DNA "BUT MAYBE I M JUST BEING TOO SENSITIVE SINCE "maybe I m ust being too sensitive since seems to me that Boston and Massachusetts sometimes gets a short shrift compared to the mighty mighty New York New York or the glitzy LABut back to the book Agent Kelly Jones walks into a struggle of wills between Vermont and Massachusetts and gets to deal with that along with trying to solve the mystery of these bones that have been foundThe mystery itself is good not surprising in some ways but it has a few twists I didn t see coming a very solidly written and plotted story for sureA definite read for mystery readers of all sort There s even a bit of romance that doesn t take over the mystery a definite plus if you like that I love it I get tired of Romance novels that are stuffed into the mystery genre when they shouldn t be this one has ust enough Romance to be fun but the author doesn t go overboard Pretty chilly serial killer suspense book One enjoys the characters in the book young people with their own world Good clean writing A good read This lady can write no doubt about it But there was a clue about 150 pages in that gave everything away I kept on reading thinking that maybe it was ust a deliberate trick but there were several other way too obvious hints and it ust really ruined it for me I m not the smartest reader I can usually lose myself in the book and not figure things out so I can be surprised so I know when I figure it out it s all over Just disappointing I can honestly say I was extremely disappointed reading this My library suggested it and I read the prologue and thought wow they re killing off men instead of women This I ve got to read With all the crime novels I ve read it s always women and some have crossed th Some time ago Michelle Gagnon offered free downloads of this book from her website and I took her up on it I was finally able to get to it library books come first and it was greatIn this second book in the Kelly Jones series some hikers come across what turns out to be a mass grave in the woods Because of the proximity to the Massachusetts Vermont border the FBI is called in to advise The FBI is in the person of agent Kelly Jones who is forced to postpone a long awaited vacation to help on this caseSomeone appears to have been targeting young gay men who are.
