    1 thought on “A Thousand Bones”

    1. Excellent thriller and I could not put this book down. This is the first book I read by P.J. Parrish (two sisters that write under one name) and looks to be part of series based on a police officer named Louis Kincaid. In this book, Louis was in the prologue and epilogue only as Joe Frye told her story to him of horrific events that she was involved in while new to her police career in Michigan--thirteen years earlier (1975). I laughed at some of the writing, i.e leaf peepers. Cried when "things [...]

    2. I could not stop reading this book - I've recently been in a reading slump, and have been spending months on the same book, but I read this in two days. There were some small issues I had with it, but overall it was a captivating story that I loved. Not to mention the surprise I got when I read the inside of the back cover and discovered P.J. Parrish is actually two sisters! I never would have guessed it was co-written, and I'm amazed at how well the sisters pooled their talents.The premise of t [...]

    3. great spinoff to the Louis Kincaid series; love rookie Sheriff deputy Joe (Joette) Frye, and the setting in Michigan 1975 was a reminder of how difficult a female officer had it, with limited 1975 technology but could still find clues and solve a difficult case

    4. Up until I read this book I had never heard of P.J. Parrish. I don't even know how this book made its way to me in the first place. What shocked me is that when I read the information regarding the author I realised that there were two of them. The two authors are sisters, Kristy Montee and Kelly Nichols. Their books have appeared on both the New York Times and USA Today Bestseller lists. They have created a series of books based in a series featuring Louis Kincaid and Joe Frye. The tenth book t [...]

    5. Another excellent read in this series, these books just get better and better. This book picks up right where number 7 left off with Louis back home in Florida and Joe coming from Miami to see him. This is a complete story about her beginnings in law enforcement back in Echo Bay, Michigan 13 years ago. This story was almost the beginning of the end of her career and had a focus on her personal life too with her fiancé and mother. On to the next one!

    6. This is about the first female deputy in a small town, trying to solve multipal gruesome murders cases. This is a very good book, I would recommend it to people who like a good murder mistery.

    7. An amazing psychological thriller, this book kept me glued till the end. The book tells the story of a small country police department in Michigan (of 1970s) dealing with a case bigger than they could imagine and a young policewoman trying to figure out her identity amongst the society. The author deviates from the same old clichés althougth sticking to a similar theme, to build an original storyline and convincing characters. As we journey with Joe Fyre in this thriller we understand the philo [...]

    8. A good fast-paced story with characters I could identify with. My second book by these authors, the first being "South of Hell". There was no particular reason for reading in that order it's just how it worked out. I'm glad it happened that way because I feel I have a good intro to the characters.A Thousand Bones tells the story of Joette Frye, a rookie with a rural sheriff's department in Michigan in 1975. The story is told as a flashback to her lover Louis Kincaid in 1988 Miami. Joe is a woman [...]

    9. The sister team of Kristy Montee and Kelly Nichols (who write under the pen name of P.J. Parrish) bring us the eighth installment of their bestselling Louis Kincaid detective series. However, unlike the previous installments, this one focuses on the past life of his lover and fellow Miami Homicide detective Joe Frye. The haunting memories of an investigation in a small northern Michigan town as a rookie cop. The memories of an investigation that changed her forever.A Thousand Bones begins with a [...]

    10. Joe Frye, the only femaile deteective in the Miami PD's Homicide Division, has a secret. Not even her lover, Detective louis Kincaid, knows of the events in Joes past which still haunt her to this day. It all began eleven years ago when Joe was an ambitious rookie cop in a small Michigan town called Echo BayThe bones found in the woods of Echo Bay were the first clue to a sting of unimaginably brutal murders of young women. Plunged into a heated inquiry to find a dangerous predator, and caught b [...]

    11. My first P.J. Parrish book and I have already added their (sister writing team) books to my to-read list!Human bones are discovered in the quiet town of Echo Bay, Michigan in 1975. With a police force of 7, the state police are called in to assist with the investigation. Rookie, Joe(tte) Frye, is the only female in the male dominated force in Echo Bay and is the central character of the story. She follows her instincts and quickly discovers these bones belong to multiple victims rather than just [...]

    12. Haven't read a thriller like this in awhile so it was a nice change! Once I got further into the book, I had a hard time putting it down. At one point I thought the killer might be one of the police officers that Joe Frye worked with. Was also disappointed at how the male officers treated her throughout the book with the exception of a few. Wondering in reality if this is still true today that females aren't considered "real cops".Loved how the story was set in northern Michigan. The beauty of o [...]

    13. Zunächst einmal: Der Titel "Das Gebeinhaus" ist total irreführend. Es gibt im Buch kein Haus aus Knochen oder ein Haus, in dem sich Knochen befinden. Leider weckt der Titel dadurch beim Lesen falsche Erwartungen. Ich habe bis kurz vorm Ende gedacht, dass da noch etwas kommen muss, da das Versprechen des Titels nicht erfüllt wurde. Leider Fehlanzeige."Das Gebeinhaus" ist nicht schlecht geschrieben und erzählt einen der ersten Fälle einer jungen Polizistin in der 70er Jahren, als die ersten F [...]

    14. The discovery of human bones belonging to more than one victim rocks the quiet County of Leelanau, Michigan, initiating the sheriff’s department to conduct a high profile investigation. In her rookie year, Joe(tte) Frye, the only woman in the male dominated world of policing, must prove her abilities and earn her place among her peers. What follows is an unorthodox investigation with a very unpredictable end. I have discovered a new author. Apparently, P.J Parrish writes a mystery/suspense/thr [...]

    16. A Thousand Bones is a good choice for mystery/suspense fans and fans of books set in Michigan. The story follows a rookie policewoman whose first year on the job is affected by the discovery of serial-murder remains. The police department is located on the usually-sleepy Leelanau Peninsula in Northern lower Michigan, and the discovery of the bodies of several young women throws the police department and the region into turmoil. The book culminates in two intense showdowns with the murderer. It's [...]

    17. This is the story of the first female homicide detective in Miami telling her story of her first major crime she worked when she was a rookie in the small Michigan town Echo Bay. When they spent months finding and searching for the thousands of bones from missing girl who were attacked by a mad man who thought he was a Wendago which was a native American legend from the local area. Finally deputy Frye catches up with the kill he finds out that she is his perfect opponent to break his "curse".

    18. I found a copy of this book at work and read it in 3 days (I snuck it home with me one night). It was really cheesey, but I got completely sucked into it. There are a couple really random & awkward "sex scenes" that I personally could've done without. It seemed like a "Silence of the Lambs" knockoff written for lonely housewives desperate for a little shot of feminism in their weekly reading.Having said that, I read this book faster than any other book I've ever read (of which I'm more than [...]

    19. PJ Parrish is a fantastic crime writer! My goodness. I've read another one of hers, SOUTH OF HELL, and this one was equally excellent. She finds a way to bring in American issues into each of the stories, and it's very cleverly done. This one had a Native American element that of course piqued my interest when it came up halfway through the story, and the tale was quite beautifully executed. I am definitely on the lookout for more of her stuff, and if you're into mysteries and crime novels, Ms P [...]

    20. If you have read the Louis Kinkaid books, I think you'll like this new character. If you haven't read the Louis Kinkaid books, give them a try as well. This book provides more about Louis's girl friend Joe Frye, and her life before she moved to Florida. Good character development and good story. PJ Parrish is the pseudonym for two sisters. Louis is an African-American private investigator, formerly a police officer. He's adopted and conflicted and his story starts in the 1970's. His girl friend [...]

    21. This novel takes Joe back years to her Michigan years and how she started out in law enforcement. It's great background to acquaint the reader with her past. One mistake that bothered me --- when looking for a record of whether the suspect owned property in the county, they actually went to the newspaper and went through old papers. Why didn't they take a ride to the courthouse and check the indexes?

    22. I recommend 1000 Bones by P J Parrish. Joe Frye (22 yr old female) detective in Echo Bay (real name of town is Leland, all other town names are actual). Human bones are found in the woods and it goes from there. My Michigan home is 20 miles from Leland in Glen Arbor. I sits next to the Sleeping Bear National Park. I particularly enjoyed the book because I could picture the surroundings, but it is an excellent mystery.

    23. Bones found in the woods were the first clue in a string of unimaginably brutal murders of young women. Plunged into a heated investigation -- and caught between the dictates of a reluctant local sheriff and the state police -- Joe Frye a female dective, soon uncovers the chilling truth: In the dead of winter in the Michigan woods, she must face down a predator who has chosen her as a worthy opponent -- or become his next victim.

    24. "A Thousand Bones" by P.J. Parrish, I really enjoyed this book! It was a story of a female cop who had a hard time making a place for herself in a mans world. She had help from a couple of people who believed in her.Bones are being found in the woods and girls are missing! The townspeople are woundering whats going to happing next!There are a lot of twist and turns until it is hard to put the book down!

    25. I could not get into this book at all. I found it slow, boring and nearly unreadable. The writing style was okay but just didn't hold my interest. The jacket summary of the book was more interesting to me than the book itself. I finished it but not with much pleasure. I just found it boring and slow.

    26. The book is set in Michigan, in an area I know pretty well, and the authors did a good job of setting the mood and portraying the area (before the vineyards became so prevalent). Even though the town is fictional, it is loosely based on the Leland area, down to some of the restaurants, beaches, etc.

    27. The writing style was okay, and I liked some of the suspense, but I couldn't get past the blatant ignorance about Native American people. How can you write a book that is so clearly taking something from their culture and then describe them as "Indians" the whole book. The authors should have researched better.

    28. I enjoyed this book after the first hundred or so pages it picked up speed. I enjoyed learning a little bit about Indian folklore that is present throughout the book. All in all a solid read. Not a lot of over the top gore and pretty good character development. I would def read another book by this author who are actually two sisters who wrote it!
