Book Description Eighteen years ago, Chris Jacobs walked out of the forest, the lone survivor of a school bus load of children who’d vanished two years before. His memory was gone, his body beaten and emaciated. Today, the sad remains of the missing children have been discovered along with evidence that they were held captive for years. But investigative reporter Michael Brody’s brother is still missing. He sets out to question Chris, hoping his memory has returned.
Constant fear of being found by his kidnapper has driven Chris into hiding. The only lead Michael has is Chris’s sister, Jamie. As they race to find Chris, Michael and Jamie somehow find each other among the decades of wreckage. But locating Chris may not be so easy. Now grown, his scars go far deeper than skin.
In Buried, the next thrilling Bone Secrets novel from bestselling author Kendra Elliot, a damaged hero digs deep into his terrifying past…and unearths a chance at love for the future.
Reviews After reading the first two books in this series, I was excited to get my hands on this pre-release third installment. This book features Michael Brody, the exboyfriend/now good friend of Lacey Campbell from book one.
Twenty years after a school bus filled with children disappears, the remains are finally found. Michael Brody's brother, Daniel, was one of the children who disappeared. Bodies are being unearthed and identified, but the remains of two of the boys are not there. One missing corpse is Chris Jacobs, who managed to escape after a couple years of captivity, and made it home to his family. He was severely scarred, both physically and emotionally, and became an amnesiac hermit who to this day keeps his whereabouts unknown. As you might guess, the other boy not found is Michael's brother, Daniel. The clues that arise from the findings/remains of the other children only point to more questions, and Michael will not rest until he finds the answers he seeks.
Chris Jacobs (the one who survived), has only one family member left, his sister Jamie who is now a school principal. Since Chris left home, Jamie has never known of Chris' whereabouts, and only has a message number to reach him. Desperate to find out what happened to his missing brother, Michael is determined to find Chris. He is convinced that Chris does not really have amnesia, and assumes he remembers things that are keeping him in hiding. Being the only known link to Chris, Michael contacts Jamie and after events convince her she has little choice, she joins Michael in the search for her brother.
Like any good mystery/thriller, this story has a very satisfying blend of intrigue, action, and heart pounding scenes. If I had to find a negative, I would say that I knew very early on who was probably responsible for the mass murders. I don't feel it detracted much from the story though, because I did not know the
motivation until close to the end. There is a wonderfully surprising twist near the end that helps explain the motivation, and it all ties up nicely.
Of all the things I liked about this book, one of my favorites is how everything finally comes together. The ending was not too abrupt, as I find some mysteries to be. This author tied up all the loose ends, and then a full chapter was spent on closure. This was a very satisfying read, and I really hope to read more about one particular character in this story in a future book!
