Carrie Stuart Parks


Carrie Stuart Parks is an award-winning fine artist and internationally known forensic artist. Along with her husband, Rick, she travels across the US and Canada teaching courses in forensic art to law enforcement as well as civilian participants. She has won numerous awards for career excellence. Carrie is a popular platform speaker, presenting a variety of topics from crime to creativity.

Animals have always been a large part of her life. Her parents, Ned and Evelyn Stuart, started Skeel Kennel Great Pyrenees in 1960. Carrie inherited the kennel and continues with her beloved dogs as both an AKC judge and former president of the Great Pyrenees Club of America. She lives on the same ranch she grew up on in Northern Idaho.


A killer with a penchant for torture has taken notice of forensic expert Gwen Marcey . . . and her daughter.
When Gwen Marcey’s dog comes home with a human skull and then leads her to a cabin in the woods near her Montana home, she realizes there’s a serial killer in her community. And when she finds a tortured young girl clinging to life on the cabin floor, she knows this killer is a lunatic.

Yet what unsettles Gwen most is that the victim looks uncannily like her daughter. The search for the torturer leads back in time to a neo-Nazi bombing in Washington state—a bombing with only one connection to Montana: Gwen. The group has a race-not-grace model of salvation . . . and they’ve marked Gwen as a race traitor. When it becomes clear that the killer has a score to settle, Gwen finds herself in a battle against time. She will have to use all of her forensic skills to find the killer before he can carry out his threat to destroy her—and the only family she has left.

My Thoughts:
Carrie Stuart Parks is a new author for me but has earned a place on my keeper shelf with The Bones Will Speak.  Life is very busy for me right now and I do most of my reading before bedtime.  I read this book in just one sitting because I was absolutely glued to the story and characters from the prologue to the last page!
I love Gwen Marcy!  She's quirky, funny, smart, brave and genuine.  The Bones Will Speak is full of twists and turns and just when you think you have things figured out...Parks offers up even more twists and turns.  At one point I almost got out a legal pad and started to take notes like a detective!  If you like a mystery/suspense that you won't be able to decipher with characters that feel like family and friends by the will LOVE The Bones Will Speak!
*I received a complimentary copy of the book in exchange for my honest review.

Happy Reading Ya'll,
