The Washington Post hailed Jonathan Nasaw's debut thriller as "superior" and "frightening." The Toronto Sun called him "a legitimate heavyweight contender among the masters of the psychological thriller" with "the most original, twisted, terrifying villains known to mankind." Now, in Twenty-Seven Bones, Nasaw turns up the heat -- and the suspense -- with a pair of deranged killers who defy the very nature of life, death, and desire....
There are twenty-seven bones in the human hand. And there are three dead bodies on the island of St. Luke -- each victim missing a hand. It's the strangest, most disturbing series of murders the Caribbean has ever known -- and one of the few crimes that could pull FBI Special Agent E. L. Pender out of retirement. In all of his years, he's never faced such a diabolical underworld drenched in superstition. At the heart of this darkness is a husband-and-wife team with a perverse plan so powerfully consuming, so brilliantly evil, that Pender can only watch and wait...as the grisly hand of fate reaches out for its next victim.
