Book Synopsis

A cold case heats up, revealing a deadly conspiracy in a twisty thriller by #1 New York Times bestselling author Lee Goldberg.

A catastrophic wildfire scorches the Santa Monica Mountains, exposing the charred remains of a woman who disappeared years ago. The investigation is assigned to Eve Ronin, the youngest homicide detective in the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department, a position that forces her to prove herself again and again. This time, though, she has much more to prove.

Bones don't lie, and these have a horrific story to tell. Eve tirelessly digs into the past, unearthing dark secrets that reveal nothing about the case is as it seems. With almost no one she can trust, her relentless pursuit of justice for the forgotten dead could put Eve's own life in peril.

Review Quotes

A Mystery & Suspense Magazine 2021 Best Book of the Year Selection

"Goldberg's characters are engaging and well-drawn...the tale is fast-paced, and the author accurately depicts investigative practices, making for another first-rate police procedural." --Associated Press

"Lean, nicely paced...the kind of psychological tension and guilt-free distraction we need right now." --Washington Post

"Lee Goldberg proves again that he is a master storyteller with this piece. His ability to develop strong plots and use a fast-paced narrative keeps the reader on their toes as things progress. Poignant characters also help keep things enthralling until the final reveal for the attentive reader." --Mystery & Suspense Magazine

"Goldberg follows Lost Hills with a riveting, intense story. Readers of Karin Slaughter or Michael Connelly will want to try this." --Library Journal (starred review)

"Goldberg knows how to keep the pages turning." --Publishers Weekly

"Goldberg's pacing and plotting are both pitch perfect, and his command of the story places him at the top of modern-day California crime writers staking a claim to the mantle of Raymond Chandler and Dashiel Hammett. Bone Canyon is destined to be the first great mystery of 2021." --Providence Journal

"Thought-provoking, compelling, and unafraid to tackle the tough subject of sexual violence, Bone Canyon is a terrific read that doesn't let up the pace until the final page. Goldberg has created a powerful character in Eve Ronin, a talented and dedicated woman in a tough job." --Authorlink

"Goldberg is clearly a fantastic storyteller...he has written or produced dozens of excellent television shows like The Glades, Psych, and Monk...readers that believe they do not like police procedurals, the Eve Ronin series could definitely be the exception to that." --The Nerd Daily

"Lee Goldberg puts the pro in police procedural. Bone Canyon is fresh, sharp, and absorbing. Give me more Eve Ronin, ASAP." --Meg Gardiner, international bestselling author

"Wow--what a novel! It is wonderful in so many ways. I could not put it down. Bone Canyon is wrenching and harrowing, full of wicked twists. Lee Goldberg captures the magic and danger of the Santa Monica Mountains and the predators who prowl them. Detective Eve Ronin takes on forgotten victims, fights for them, and nearly loses everything in the process. She's a riveting character, and I can't wait for her next case." --Luanne Rice, New York Times bestselling author

"Bone Canyon is a propulsive procedural that provides high thrills in difficult terrain, grappling thoughtfully with sexual violence and police corruption, as well as the minefield of politics and media in Hollywood and suburban Los Angeles. Eve Ronin is a fantastic series lead--stubborn and driven, working twice as hard as her colleagues both to prove her worth and to deliver justice for the dead." --Steph Cha, author of Your House Will Pay

"Goldberg, who must write while he sleeps to have so many books and movie scripts, has created a compelling hero whose dedication to justice is constantly being misinterpreted as limelight stealing, and paired her with a please-don't-let-me-die-on-a-case-before-I-retire mentor/partner who is often more concerned with what's the next meal. A lot of thrills and a little humor are added to the mix, resulting in a thoroughly enjoyable police procedural." --Daniel Goldin, Boswell Book Company
