The Lost Bones by Ruhi Choudhary (Detective Mackenzie No. 5)

I've read one in this series and it was a while ago so it was good to get to the gritty and courageous Mad Mack again. This time like before Mackenzie seems to be attracting personal attention of the worst kind. Murders are done in her name - by someone who says they do it to those who have hurt her, belittled her or been nasty to her but is causing a lot of flak in the department as well as to Mackenzie herself. She deplores the attention and only wants to be ignored and be part of the team - a position that she can hardly claim to when she seems to be singled out for such a lot of attention. The investigation is twisted, the clues are indistinct and difficult to read and the danger to Mackenzie herself becomes very real when the murderer starts escalating the violence. A page turner, with police procedurals in plenty this was a good one. Sent by Bookouture for an unbiased review, courtesy of Netgalley.


  1. Seems I have seen books by the author before and this one sounds delicious. Wonder where the setting is?

  2. A page-turner is one of the highest compliments for a detective story, I think.
