From the Editor

The Burning Girl. That is the nickname Charlotte “Charley” Rowe has been trying to forget since adolescence. Orphaned and abducted by serial killers, Charley was tasked with burning the personal belongings of their victims. When federal agents rescued her, it didn’t take long for the press to dub her “the Burning Girl.” And it stuck for a long time.

As an adult, Charley goes into hiding, building walls around her—both literally and figuratively. She lets in one person: her doctor, Dylan Thorpe. When he offers her an experimental drug to combat anxiety, she is reluctant at first. But he is very persuasive. And charismatic. And maybe not exactly “prescribing” it for the right reasons.

When the drug takes effect, Charley has an all-over feeling of strength—mentally and physically. Fearless, she is empowered to go after predators not unlike the people who abducted her.

So what happens when a woman becomes a weapon? If Charley is judge, jury, and executioner, what happens to her soul? And is it worth the sacrifice to rid the world of monsters? These are the central questions of Bone Music. I read the more than four hundred terrifying and thrilling pages in one sitting. I hope you will, too.

Editorial Reviews


“A stellar and gripping opening to the Burning Girl Series introduces the tough, smart Trina Pierce, aka Charlotte Rowe, who survived a childhood of murder and exploitation to discover there might be another way to fight back…Readers will be eager for the next installment in Rice’s science-fiction take on The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.” Booklist (starred review)

Bone Music is a taut and gripping thriller that’s as bleak and harsh as the Arizona desert. It never lets up until the final page. Rice has created a great character in Charlotte Rowe.” —Authorlink
