    "Seven young females reduced to bone," Hoyle said. His eyes remained fixed on DeMarco's. "Seven skeletons in a four by fourteen by ten-foot space between walls. Each one cocooned in clear plastic sheeting. The kind painters use to cover a floor. Each cocoon sealed with silver duct tape...

    "If not for the termites, the poor girls might never have been found.? This is the second book in author Silvis' series about Pennsylvania State Police Sergeant Ryan DeMarco. I enjoyed the first book TWO DAYS GONE but liked this offering even more. These aren't your normal plot...

    ?The Ryan DeMarco Mystery series by Randall Silvis sets a new standard for noir mystery, a standard not soon to be scaled by any other author any time soon. WALKING THE BONES, the second book of the series, is a story both fragile and gritty with main character Sergeant Ryan DeMarco ...

    Full review to be posted on blog. *Really like this series! *This installment is more character-driven than plot driven. *Really delves into who Ryan DeMarco is, and also explores new relationship Ryan has with Jayme. *Liked the flashbacks into both their childhoods - helps to ex...

    There was a time I liked the thrillers fir pace and action. I guess I have finally realized that it's not true in real life and to be able to totally relate to the story , you need flawed characters ,a slowly evolving story line and a truth that is just out there to be explored by the ...

    I have so many series that I already follow, I decided to be a bit more picky this year. I read the first in this series, actually it is the beginning, last year and liked the main character DeMarco. This is the second in series, and liked it better than the first, so I made what for m...

    I found the first in this series a moody, literary mystery - this one is more of the same. More character-driven and less about the actual mystery, still the wonderful prose and turn of phrase as the first. A little bit darker, a little moodier, but ultimately optimistic, I think. I lo...

    Although my inclination was to devour this book as I did the first one in this series, I paced myself so I could savor the beautiful prose and the masterful way Silvis develops his tales. Sergeant Ryan DeMarco is a tortured soul, consumed by missed opportunities and might-have-been...

    Ryan DeMarco is a troubled character that because of his abusive father and the loss of his son struggles with "Love" relationships and his own violent tendencies. I had not read Mystery #1 but did not feel too lost. Lengthy read that took about 25% into the book before any real action...

    I thoroughly enjoyed Two Days Gone, the first Ryan DeMarco book. This one, not quite so much. It tended to go off into literary land. He didn't need 15 words when 10 would do just fine and make it so much more readable. Seemed like there were more leaps of logic in this one and the ...

    More of a character study than a mystery. This is a slow burn character study of Detective Ryan DeMarco--roughly 30% is about a case, the remaining 70% is about DeMarco struggling to find his footing after the death of his former friend, Thomas Huston. Having read the first b...

    This series has officially come into its own! I loved this book - it was a awesome ride from start to finish. Note: this book picks up where the first leaves off. It can be read as a stand-alone, but it would probably be helpful to read the first beforehand to understand why Ryan is...

    This book is well written, the prose is rich and complex, it digs into the minds of the protagonists, De Marco and Jayme. The reader discovers the life of the sergeant through chapters that refer to his childhood. The book is divided into sections, divided into chapters, which are focu...
