Ink and Bone; Lisa Unger
Touchstone - 2016
Finely Montgomery is rarely alone, the spirits enjoy keeping this 20 year old company. When those spirits come on a bit too strong, Finely has always turned to her grandmother Eloise, a psychic, for help.
Merri Gleason's daughter Abbey was abducted and has been missing for almost a year. Abbey was taken while her parents were vacationing in the Hollows. Abbey was hiking with her father and brother and was abducted while her father was distracted by his cellphone. Merri hires Jones Cooper a PI who has worked with Eloise in the past on tough cases and this is one case where he will need the help on both Eloise and Finely.
The story is set in the remote Hollows in upstate New York, as were several of Unger's previous novels. Although this could be read as a standalone novel, there are references to places and characters from earlier Unger novels.
Ink and Bone was a fast paced thriller with some supernatural aspects and a surprise ending which I enjoyed. The story itself kept me quickly turning the pages. Finely was a great character, a little on the wild side but smart, very smart.
