Craig Robertson is surprised but very pleased when he finally receives a call from Paul Maloney. He and Paul had a one night stand but Craig is hoping for more. They agree to meet at a local bar and hit it off immediately. Later they decide to go home and spend a passionate night together. The next morning Craig is feeling optimistic about a possible future with Paul until some unexpected news throws Craig’s life into turmoil.


As Craig and Paul are talking over breakfast a letter arrives. It is from an old friend of Craig’s family. She is writing to let him know that his father has gone missing. He is unsure of his feelings about the news. Craig’s father’s fanatical religious beliefs put a constant strain on his family. After his mother left them he was forced to deal with his father’s oppression all by himself. Finally, when Craig could no longer stand his father’s ways he set out on his own and made a new life for himself in London.


Craig knows he must return home to discover what has happened to his father. He asks Paul to accompany him. However, his return home uncovers painful memories that Craig would much rather remain forgotten.


BONES OF SUMMER by Anne Brooke is an exceptionally well written and thrilling mystery novel. This novel grabbed a hold of me almost immediately and would not let go. I found myself reading until the early morning hours. The plot is quite interesting but what really intrigued me most about this book is Craig himself. He survived a terrible childhood. I admired his resilience. His father’s fanaticism is extremely disturbing and also very sad. The last few chapters are especially chilling and will stay with me for a long time.
