Ink and Bone by Lisa Unger is a missing person mystery being solved by a psychic who sees ghosts.
Finley is in her early 20’s and is currently living with her grandmother (a well know psychic) while attending a community college. Finley sees ghosts and has “dreams” that she can’t really control and cause her to black out.
Merri is a Mother whose daughter was kidnapped after her husband and son were shot and left for dead. She has not given up hope and desperately wants to find her daughter.
These two women are very interesting characters. Finley has covered her body in tattoos so that her outside looks like her inside. She covers her body with the faces of those she has visions about. She is a fast riding young woman trying to shut out the voices while trying to figure out her relationship with boyfriend. Merri is a strong woman who has put up with a lot in her life – mainly in her marriage and she refuses to give up on her missing daughter. Her drive for answers brings her to a private investigator who brings her to Finley.
This book had me at the first page. I liked both women and their stories. But this book is not entirely about them. It is about Merri’s husband, a kidnapper, a kidnapped girl, a boy with PTSD, etc. The story was really interesting.
The book had several twist ans turns full of interesting characters, likable characters and not so likable characters. I love mysteries. I love trying to figure them out. I like that even when I thought I had it figured out, I didn’t quite get it right.
I read this book fast because I wanted to know what was going to happen next.
