Pg. 69: Michelle Gagnon's "Boneyard"

The current feature at the Page 69 Test: Michelle Gagnon's Boneyard.

About the book, from the publisher:
On the trail of a serial killer, the path splits in two…

FBI special agent Kelly Jones has worked on many disturbing cases in her career, but nothing like this. A mass grave site unearthed on the Appalachian Trail puts Kelly at the head of an investigation that crosses the line—from Massachusetts to Vermont, from wealthy vacationers to poor transients, from a serial killer to a copycat nemesis.

Assisted by law enforcement from both states and a forensic anthropologist, Kelly searches for the killers. But as darkness falls, another victim is taken. Kelly must race to save him before he joins the rest…in the boneyard.
Among the early praise for Boneyard:
"I defy anyone to read the first chapter of Boneyard and put the book down. Pure reading pleasure—creepy, terrifying, and utterly believable. I recommend it with great enthusiasm."
New York Times bestselling author Douglas Preston

"Boneyard is a winner! A compelling page-turner that pays due attention to the human heart. It'll keep you up all night."
New York Times bestselling author Jeffery Deaver

"...Gagnon will be as hot someday as the authors who give her cover blurbs...once I got about three chapters into the book, I wasn't putting it down for much of anything. There's no doubt that Gagnon is getting into her stride, spinning a smooth, plot-driven police procedural with the lab and psych details neatly stitched in place..."
