Body and Bone
by LS Hawker
on Tour June 2016
Synopsis:LS Hawker returns with another atmospheric, twisting tale of suspense that questions the nature of identity and how far a young mother is willing to go to run from the mistakes of her past.
He wants to destroy her reputation.
He wants to destroy her life.
He wants to destroy…her.
Nessa Donati used to be a happily married mother with a successful music blog and satellite radio show. But that was before her husband John relapsed on drugs and went missing. That was before he was presumed dead. And before she was framed for his murder.
When a commenter on Nessa’s blog starts harassing her online, Nessa shrugs it off. Trolls are a part of internet life. But eventually the troll begins threatening her safety and releasing personal details… details only her husband would know.
As Nessa’s life is dismantled piece by piece, her only option is to find John and put a stop to the lies. But when their son becomes a pawn in his twisted game, she must face a disturbing truth: Maybe John isn’t tormenting her, after all. But if he’s not…who is? And how far will this monster go to exact revenge?

This is the second book I read by LS Hawker. I absolutely loved The Drowning Game so I was really looking forward to reading Body and Bone and it did not dissapoint.
Again LS Hawker has written a novel that is a very intriging read and where nothing is at it seems. There were a lot of twits in the story and also the ending was quite the surprise. Nessa is not a woman I would like an she makes about every wrong decision you can make in the situation, but along the way I started to like her better.
I really like LS Hawker's writing. It is not difficult to get sucked in the story. You just keep on reading to see what will happen next. And it is never what you think will happen.
My rating: 4/5
