Splintered Silence ( A Bone Gap Travellers Mystery) $23.79

Among the Irish Travellers living in the Appalachian Mountains of Tennessee, no one forgets and no one forgives. And as former Marine MP Brynn Callahan finds out when she returns home, it’s hard to bury the past when bodies keep turning up . . .

After an IED explosion abruptly ends her tour of duty, Brynn arrives stateside with PTSD and her canine partner, Wilco—both of them bearing the scars of battle. With a mix of affection, curiosity, and misgivings, she goes back to Bone Gap, Tennessee, and the insular culture she’d hoped to escape by enlisting in the Marine Corps.

Marginalized and wary of outsiders, the Irish Travellers keep to themselves in a secluded mountain community, maintaining an uneasy coexistence with the “settled” townspeople of McCreary. When Wilco’s training as a cadaver dog leads Brynn to discover a body in the woods, the two worlds collide. Soon it’s clear that Brynn and Wilco are in danger – and they’re not the only ones.

After the police identify the dead woman, Brynn is shocked to learn she has a personal connection—and everything she’s been told about her past is called into question.
Forming a reluctant alliance with local sheriff Frank Pusser, Brynn must dig up secrets that not only will rattle her close-knit clan to its core, but may forever change her perception of who she is . . . and put her back in the line of fire.

First off, I am super excited that this is the first book in the series and second, I can’t wait to enter the Appalachian Mountains. I will also say that one of the main characters is a dog and this makes me so happy! I have not read anything by this author and I have high hopes that I will need to get more books from her.

Face Blind: A Mystery by Lance Hawvermale ($7.46)

A man with a neurological disorder that prevents him from recognizing human faces confronts an enigmatic killer in Chile’s Atacama desert – the most lifeless place on earth

Gabe Traylin is face-blind, unable to tell one person from the next. Content to earn his living well away from civilization, he works as an astronomer at an observatory in the earth’s driest desert, where no rain has fallen in 400 years. But when he witnesses a murder that he’s unable to stop or comprehend, Gabe finds himself drawn into an investigation with disastrous consequences. Unable to provide a description of the killer to the police or explain his own erratic actions, he becomes their suspect in a series of horrific and unexplained mutilations. To discover the truth before he’s arrested for crimes he didn’t commit, he must put his trust in three strangers: a young traveler with a purpose, a washed-up novelist who believes he’s bulletproof, and an alluring woman with a face he’ll never see.

Together they unearth the secrets of Chile’s fascist past, a time of kidnappings, torture, and political turmoil and venture further into the desert, discovering the secrets of revenge as well as the secrets of themselves. Moody, atmospheric and compulsively readable, Lance Hawvermale’s Face Blind is in a class of thriller all by itself.

What an interesting idea… a person that cannot remember faces. I feel like that all the time but mine is just lack of memory and age. Lance Hawvermale is another new author for me and I can’t wait to see if he can keep me guessing from page one until the end. It’s always my personal goal to figure out who the criminal is before the author can reveal it to me.

When I started reading for fun I started with mysteries and over the years I’ve branched out but I have come to realize that thrillers are easily my favorite. I’ve enjoyed seeing what different writers do to throw me off the beaten path. I am so glad that Bookcase.Club keeps new authors and books (yes they are older but they are in new condition) coming to my door with a nice monthly price tag.
