#5BOOKS: WHEREIN I PONDER OLD FANDOMS AND NEW BOOK RECS

Written by Kelly for pop.edit.lit on Monday, January 30, 2017

I am sooo intrigued by the combination of forensics and cultural knowledge in this. And it’s set in the Carribbean to boot — a setting I have not read before. This is about Digger, a new recruit to the police force in the island of Camaho. Thing is, he’s really there to find his mother’s killer — a cop. But, finds himself absorbed into his boss’s obsession with a cold case too. And that’s how the mix of forensics and Caribbean cultural knowledge from his grandmother — a reader of bones — that helps him with these cases. It’s that mix of science and culture that I am busting to learn more about.
