Book Description:

In this enigmatic follow up to his critically acclaimed debut novel The Cuts that Cure, Arthur Herbert returns to the Texas-Mexico border with this saga of a small town’s bloody loss of innocence.

Amoret, Texas, 1982. Life along the border is harsh, but in a world where cultures work together to carve a living from the desert landscape, Blaine Beckett lives a life of isolation. A transplanted Boston intellectual, for twenty years locals have viewed him as a snob, a misanthrope, an outsider. He seems content to stand apart until one night when he vanishes into thin air amid signs of foul play.

Noah Grady, the town doctor, is a charming and popular good ol’ boy. He’s also a keeper of secrets, both the town’s and his own. He watches from afar as the mystery of Blaine’s disappearance unravels and rumors fly. Were the incipient cartels responsible? Was it a local with a grudge? Or did Blaine himself orchestrate his own disappearance? Then the unthinkable happens, and Noah begins to realize he’s considered a suspect.

Paced like a lit fuse and full of dizzying plot twists, The Bones of Amoret is a riveting whodunit that will keep you guessing all the way to its shocking conclusion.

I love taking a chance on previously unknown-to-me authors and thereby stumbling across a five star novel that I might never otherwise have discovered. This is exactly what happened with Arthur Herbert's new historical mystery, The Bones Of Amoret. I have been lucky enough to visit Texas twice so the book's setting appealed greatly to me. Once I started actually reading, I found that our narrator, Noah, had such an engaging tone and chatty style that I was immediately captivated. The Bones Of Amoret consists of Noah recounting to a journalist, decades after the events occurred, what he witnessed around the time Blaine Beckett's disappearance and how the small town of Amoret was affected.

Herbert obviously has a lot of knowledge of the area in which his novel is set and the people who live there. This lends a real depth to the novel, and the 1980s references are frequent enough to give the book authenticity without becoming jarring. I can't say much about the story itself because I daren't risk inadvertently spoilering such a compelling mystery, however the plotlines are so deftly planned d paced that Noah's discoveries and revelations kept me glued to the pages. I even woke myself up a couple of hours early in order to continue reading before my day got underway. The Bones Of Amoret is that good!
