In Mundy’s Landing, bygone bloodshed has become a big business. During the rigorous winter of 1666, all but five colonists in the small Hudson Valley settlement died of starvation. Accused of unimaginable crimes, James and Elizabeth Mundy and their three children survived, but the couple were later accused of murder and executed. Left to fend for themselves in a hostile community, their offspring lived out exemplary lives in a town that would bear the family name. They never reveal the secret that died with their parents on the gallows… or did they?
“We Shall Never Tell.” Spurred by the cryptic phrase in a centuries-old letter, Emerson Mundy has flown cross-country to her ancestral hometown in hopes of tracing her ancestral past—and perhaps building a future. In Mundy’s Landing, she discovers long lost relatives, a welcoming ancestral home… and a closet full of skeletons.
A year has passed since former NYPD Detective Sullivan Leary solved the historic Sleeping Beauty Murders, apprehended a copycat killer, and made a fresh start in the Hudson Valley. Banking on an uneventful future in a village that’s seen more than its share of bloodshed, Sully is in for an unpleasant surprise when a historic skull reveals a notorious truth. Now she’s on the trail of a murky predator determined to destroy the Mundy family tree, branch by branch.

This is the second book I have read by Wendy Corsi Staub. I really liked Blue Moon so I was looking forward to reading Bone White. And I enjoyed it just as much.
Wendy Corsi Straub really knows how to write a mystery. She can keep you guessing who the killer is untill the end. She just pulls you into the story and will keep you flipping the pages untill the end. The multiple storylines give a very nice overview and come together perfectly in the end.
I really like how she combines past events with the present time. It gives the story a whole new dimension. The booksin this series are easely read as stand alones so it is not necessary to read the other books before starting Bone White, but I can highly recommend to read them all.
My rating: 4/5
