Bone Canyon A cold case heats up revealing a deadly conspiracy in a twisty thriller by #1  New York Times bestselling author Lee GoldbergA catastrophic wildfire scorches the Santa Monica Mountains exposing the charred remains of a woman who disappeared years ago The investigation is assigned to Eve Ronin the youngest homicide detective in the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department a position that forces her to prove herself again and again This time though she has much to proveBones don’t lie and these have a horrific story to tell Eve tirelessly digs into the past unearthing dark secrets that reveal nothing about the case is as it seems With almost no one she can trust her relentless pursuit of justice for the forgotten dead could put Eve’s own life in peril Bone Canyon is the second book in the Eve Ronin series about a young homicide detective in the LA County Sheriff’s Department It’s not crucial to have read the first book Lost Hills as you get the necessary backstory and this doesn’t spoil that one although events from it are referred to uite often Unlike the author’s Ian Ludlow series these are straight police thrillers without the spoofcomedy element and while they don’t break any new ground I like Eve as a heroine and they are well plotted and writtenEve has only just returned to active duty after breaking her wrist on her last case when she is called to the discovery of human bones on the hillside uncovered by recent wildfires The remains are identified as those of a young woman who went missing six years earlier soon after reporting that she had been gang raped Already unpopular in her department because of her history and being hounded by Hollywood who want to make her story into a TV series Eve will expose dark secrets which make her a target for those she should be able to trustI had commented in my review of the last book that it was a bit too much of an homage to Michael Connelly’s Harry Bosch series and that I hoped he would have the confidence to develop on his own By coincidence we just started listening to one of the recent Bosch audiobooks which highlighted the similarities here once It’s not a bad thing Connelly is a master of the genre but I’m going to run out of his books soon so am happy to have thrillers like them to read Eve shows the same grit disdain for authority and determination to do right by the victim as BoschI enjoyed the scenes with her rather dysfunctional family and even uite enjoyed the romance angle unusual for me It’s not too gruesome or violent and I enjoyed the forensic aspectsI was slightly disappointed by the reveal I can’t say too much without spoilers but I was enjoying this being a cold case mystery it seems authors can’t help inserting this particular trope wherever they can but it didn’t make a whole lot of sense to me One thread was also left hanging but will hopefully be dealt with in the next book I liked the references to Hollywood The Vine from the Ian Ludlow books meaning that they’re in the same “universe” and would love to see a crossover between the series which is totally possible with how things were leftMy thanks to NetGalley and Thomas Mercer for the ARC which allowed me to give an honest review Bone Canyon is published on January 5th 2021 BONE CANYON by Lee Goldberg is the second book in the Eve Ronin police procedural and crime thriller series and is set in California Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department LASD Homicide Detective Eve Ronin and her soon to retire partner Duncan Pavone are assigned a case where the charred remains of a woman who disappeared six years ago are revealed after a wildfire has devastated both plants and homes in the area Eve is the youngest homicide detective in the LASD and she continues to have to prove herself worthy of the position However nothing is ever easyEve is an energetic and compelling main character and definitely someone you can root for She works tirelessly makes a few rookie mistakes while learning her job but has clear goals that influenced the plot Her motivations seemed believable with well drawn and appropriate emotions As a reader we begin to understand how Eve’s past affects her actions and emotions on this case Duncan’s character has depth in this novel as well as some of Eve’s family members While the case is not straight forward Eve and Duncan move forward with seeking justice Who can Eve trust besides Duncan What really happened to the woman that died Overall this is a tense and highly readable novel with wit suspense and some great twists as well as some violence It is gritty fast paced and action packed The imagery visual auditory and olfactory came through vividly If you enjoy excellent mystery thrillers then I recommend that you check out this one 45 stars rounded up to 5 stars I am looking forward to reading book three in the series Thomas Mercer and Lee Goldberg provided a complimentary digital ARC of this novel via NetGalley This is my honest review Opinions are mine alone and are not biased in any way Bone Canyon is the second in the Eve Ronin series It’s a well done police procedural featuring a strong woman protagonist Eve is the youngest Homicide detective in the LA County Sheriff’s Department This time Eve and her partner Duncan are investigating a cold case Human bones have literally turned up after a wildfire in Bone Canyon It doesn’t take long to identify the woman and things move fast from there There are conspiracy undertones to this story with Eve unable to trust anyone in her department outside of her partner Eve is a believable character She’s young and is still learning the ropes She’s driven and has yet to become disillusioned I also appreciated her partner Dunkin Donuts Duncan Pavone Despite being steps away from retirement he’s still engaged and willing to risk his own reputation He’s also a great teacher for Eve and unlike many of the male detectives wants her to succeed Goldberg writes with a gritty realism touching on department politics and misogyny overtop the search for the rapists and killers We get elements of humor in the form of an attempt to make a tv series of Eve’s fast rise in the department The joke became even obvious when I read that Goldberg was the writer for several crime shows such as Monk This is a fun entertaining book that moves at a crisp pace and kept me engaged every step of the way I will definitely be looking for book three My thanks to netgalley and Thomas Mercer for an advance copy of this book This is a mystery book and this book is the 2nd book in the Eve Ronin series I loved the series Mr Monk by Lee Goldberg so I really wanted to try out another series written by Lee Goldberg I have to say I really liked this series and I will current to read this series I loved the characters The mystery part was good and I love how Eve did not let anything to stop her from looking into what happen to the girls I think the pacing in this book is good This book had me not wanting to put it down so I had to finish reading this book before going to bed I have to say there is some hard topics covered in this book like rape murder and Cops doing bad things so please look into what topics is covered in this book before reading it if you get upset by reading hard to read topics I was kindly provided an e copy of this book by the publisher Thomas Mercer or author Lee Goldberg via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review about how I feel about this book and I want to send a big Thank you to them for that This book is schedule to be release on January
