The Echo of Bones

(The third book in the Michael Brady series)
A novel by

“Find her for me, Mr Brady. I know she’s dead. I know I’ll never see her again. But find her. Give me a place to go on her birthday. Christmas Day. Somewhere I can take her teddy bear. Lay flowers. Find Alice for me, Mr Brady. Please...”

It’s 20 years since Alice went missing.
There’s never been any trace.
Until now.

Until some bones are found in a shallow grave on the cold, bleak North York Moors.
But is it Alice?
Or Becky? The other girl – who disappeared a month earlier…
Two local girls: two families that have finally learned to live with their grief.
But now Michael Brady must tell one family their daughter has been found.
And break the bad news to the other family.
No-one was ever convicted. Everyone’s convinced the killer is in jail.
Everyone except Brady.
He thinks the real killer is still out there.
Brady has to re-open the old wounds. He has to find the real killer. And he has to stop seeing the similarities between his daughter and one of the murdered girls.
With the local families waiting for the ‘killer’ to come out of jail, with a boss determined to stop him discovering the truth – and without Frankie Thomson to help him – this is a case that affects Michael Brady like no other.

The Echo of Bones is the third book in the Michael Brady series. It follows Salt in the Wounds…

“Had me gripped from the start. A truly captivating story, very well told. Really didn’t want it to end and eagerly awaiting the next one in this series.”
“Fabulous! Had me gripped from start to finish. Brady reminds me of Mark Billingham’s detective, Tom Thorne.”
“You know you’re hooked when you really care what happens to the characters. Read it in three sittings.”

…and The River Runs Deep.

“I read a lot of detective books, but none has drawn me into another world like this one. Loved it. Cannot wait for the rest of the Michael Brady series.”
“Michael Brady book 1 was brilliant. Book 2 is every bit as good. Believable characters, strong plot, intriguing story.”
“Another thrilling read. Could not put it down! The depth of the characters is so good I couldn’t stop thinking about the story after I’d finished it.”
“That’s the trouble with a really good book – you want to keep reading but you don’t want it to end. Loved the natural dialogue: witty and believable.”
