“Off to War” by Wayne Hancock

I can cross another novel off my list. I am a fan of author Wayne Hancock and the mysteries or crime fictions that he normally writes. This one didn’t let me down, even though it was a little different than previous books in this series. In previous books, they were usually looking for someone who murdered somebody….in this book they’re trying to keep German spies from invading their community. I was entertained the whole time and I enjoyed the book. I also enjoyed the fact that you get a sense of how people lived back then versus how they live today.

Synopsis: Off to War is the fourth book, and the exciting conclusion to the Gotcha! Series, eleven years in the making. This time Buck Pettit’s investigating club is chasing German spies instead of murderers. Read how they find and eliminate this threat to our national security. What happens to Irv and Will as they reach the draft age? How will they react to this threat of war from abroad? With keen insight and a great ability to blend history and fiction, author Wayne Hancock illuminates the hard times and struggles that existed during the Great Depression of the 1930s.

“The Bone Keeper” by Luca Veste

I’ve finished another novel and wanted to share it with you. This novel is a stand alone and was a really creepy read. I enjoyed it, don’t get me wrong. I didn’t see the ending coming. I imagined that the killer was a particular person and it wasn’t who I thought it was. Plus, it seems that the author is trying to throw you a few curve balls to throw you off. But if you’re looking for a crime novel that is really creepy, than this book may be right up your alley.

Synopsis: Twenty years ago, four teenagers went exploring in the local woods, trying to find the supposed home of the Bone Keeper. Only three returned.

Now, a woman is found wandering the streets, horrifically injured, claiming to have fled the evil urban myth.

And then a body turns up.
