Goodreads

The stunning new thriller from the New York Times–bestselling author.

When a Crow Indian acquaintance of Tomlinson’s asks him to help recover a relic stolen from his tribe, Doc Ford is happy to tag along—but neither Doc nor Tomlinson realize what they’ve let themselves in for. Their search takes them to the part of Central Florida known as Bone Valley, famous primarily for two things: a ruthless subculture of black-marketers who trade in illegal artifacts and fossils, and a multibillion-dollar phosphate industry whose strip mines compromise the very ground they walk on.

Neither enterprise tolerates nosy outsiders. For each, public exposure equals big financial losses—and in a region built on a million-year accumulation of bones, there is no shortage of spots in which to hide a corpse. Or two.

JUST A NOTE: Read It File It is for books that I have read that I need to keep track of. The reviews will be super short (think tweet longer length) but will serve the purpose of getting the books into UBB for tracking purposes 🙂

First Thought when Finished: Bone Deep by Randy Wayne White was a pretty interesting mix of mystery and history!

Read It File It: I will admit I picked up Bone Deep because of the narrator and synopsis. I realize that it is number 21 in the series but honestly I never felt lost while reading. Randy writes a pretty good mystery and throws in some history to boot. The characters are engaging and overall this was a pretty good listen.

Audio Thoughts:

Narrated By George Guidall / Length: 9 hrs and 50 mins

George is hands down one of my favorite narrators on the planet. He is just awesome at procedural and has a thing for nailing slightly older leading men. He still makes them sound darn sexy!

Final Thoughts: I think I will be checking out more books in this series!

    You’re way braver than me when it comes to diving in late in a series.

    It sounds a little like Beverley Connor’s Lindsay Chamberlain series which features an archaeologist. If you feel like giving it a shot, try “Skeleton Crew” which was simply smashing.

    I haven’t listened to anything by George, but if he is one of your favs even over Luke Daniels and Will Patton then I must give him a listen.
