Message in the Bones by Dawn Merriman #bookreview

Long-buried bones, psychic visions, a tattoo with messages from above, and a clown-masked murderer chasing through a corn maze. Will keep you on the edge of your seat until the very last word!


Freak is a nasty word, but many people in this small town have no trouble calling me a freak, or worse. It’s not my fault I awoke with the ability to “sense” things after I was nearly killed and my father was murdered. Touching certain items often gives me visions, sometimes horrifying ones. Most people here are afraid of that kind of thing.


Especially my brother, Dustin. As head detective of the River Bend police department, he’d rather pretend I don’t exist than believe in my gift. The long-buried bones of a murder victim force him to ask me for help. I should have know better. I should have stayed comfortable and safe hiding from the world.


No one believes me anyway. Only one man believes the messages I got from the bones. The killer. And now he hunts me.

My Review

Since this was my first psychic mystery, I wasn’t sure what to anticipate. It turned out to be a page-turner and an extremely rapid read.

Very intriguing and engaging book with well-rounded characters. Five stars hands down, I highly recommend.
