FBI Agent Eleri Eames was there the day her sister disappeared at eight years old. However, Eleri is the only one who knows that her sister is already dead and has been for quite some time. When a skeleton is unearthed in New Orleans, Eleri is convinced it belongs to Emmaline. The age and ancestry of the remains are a match, and there’s something telling Eleri that New Orleans is the place where her sister lived and died.
As Eleri hunts for answers, demons—old and new—begin following her. The Lobomau have been entering the city in ever-increasing numbers, and that might just have something to do with the Dauphine sisters and their long family history of witchcraft and voodoo.
Eleri desperately needs her partner Donovan on this case with her, but can he risk his own job to help her? Eleri’s ancestry may have imbued her with some powers, but compared to her own great-grandmother and the Dauphines, she’s untrained and untested at best.
When the bones turn out not to belong to her sister, Eleri has to ask how a case so similar to Emmaline’s even exists…and is it an arrow pointed to her own twisted family history?

A Brilliant read!
What a wonderful story in Garden of Bone by A.J. Scudiere. This is the sixth book in The NightShade Forensic Files series. I read all up to this one. I love this series, and I love reading work by this author. It's a well-written, unique story with investigations that link to paranormal. It's a grand thriller, and can be chilling, and agents Eleri and Donovan are on the case, but it's not a bureau case. It's something else. It’s definitely un-put-downable! It is always an honor to read this author's books. This is a magnificent story that kept this reader turning the pages. Definitely an unpredictable story, my favorite kind! Wow! A wonderfully told story. Brilliant writing!
