Blood and Bone | Book Review

Jack Hawthorne has a life that most would love to have.  He has traveled the world, treasure hunted, and been in may exciting adventures.  Now, Jack had settled down with Espy and started a family.  He has a quiet life teaching at a university but, one night and one call change all of that.

In Blood and Bone by Don Hoesel, Jack is reminded of a time when his life was crazy and a treasure hunt that had gone wrong.  He thought that all of this was past since the person that hired him had died.  Little did he know that the bones he had buried in an Australian desert would be an issue years later.

Jack receives a call from his long time friend Ducky, that lets him know he has only minutes to leave his house before people sent to capture him arrive.  This might be easy for the “old” Jack, but now he has a wife, Espy, and kids. One of his kids has cystic fibrosis so its not that easy to pick up and leave but, they make it out of their house right before the men get there. 

Taking Ducky’s advice they travel to an airport to get out of town, but this only starts the trip around the world as the people trying to get Jack kidnap his sons.  Having enough to deal with, he finds out after traveling to South America that the bones he buried are no longer there. 

This is another great thriller from Don Hoesel.  It’s wonderful to read his books because he has a way of taking you around the world in the comfort of your own home.  The only downside to this book was it was an extension of his other book Elisha’s Bones, where the whole story started.  Not having read this book I was a little lost at times, but I truly enjoyed another trip around the world and all the exciting twists and turns that came with it.
*I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher for the purpose of this review.*
