Book Review-The Altar of Bones

The Altar of BonesThe Altar of Bones by Philip Carter


My rating: 5 of 5 stars


One word-Fantastic! This is truly a masterful piece of suspense/thriller storytelling!




It starts in Siberia(brrr)with a young woman who is in possession of a secret. She helps her so called boyfriend escape from the prison she works in, and they end up in this cave. This takes place a long time ago. Jump to the present. An old man,father of 2 grown sons,ends up in the hospital pretty much on his death bed. His one son, Dom is a priest, his other son, Ry works for the DEA. Well the old man wanted to confess something to his son Ry, not Dom. Dom was the only one available, so he tells Dom this story. Jump again to California where an older woman is murdered but she leaves a message for her granddaughter(who didnt know about her until this happened!) who then goes on a mission that puts her in terrible danger. All these events are connected in a way you cannot possibly predict! I absolutely loved this book!
