A Haunting of the Bones (A Bell Elkins Novella)
An unmissable thriller of small-town America
By Julia Keller
Bell Elkins' past returns to haunt her in A Haunting of the Bones, a gripping short story from acclaimed author Julia Keller
What do you do when the past comes knocking?
Bell Elkins, prosecuting attorney and small-town heroine from Pulitzer Prize winner Julia Keller, takes on her most personal case yet in exclusive digital novella A Haunting of the Bones. Perfect for fans of Linwood Barclay and Henning Mankell.
Teresa Dolan's disappearance was never reported to the police. Because no one but her young daughters thought it was suspicious. And her abusive husband Donnie certainly didn't want the police hanging around.
Bell Elkins and her sister Shirley grew up thinking their father had murdered their mother. But, with no body, no police involvement and no proof, justice was never served.
Forty years later Bell's life has settled into a distorted rhythm. Then she receives a phone call that shatters her world.
Human remains have been found in the scrubland just outside town. And they belong to her mother.
