Dry Bones by Craig Johnson is one of those books that just grabs you. We meet a girl, at the beginning, who is brutally murdered. Only she is a T Rex, now re-discovered in what is a huge archeological find. But her murder is mirrored by that of the Wyoming rancher upon whose property the remains were found.
And everyone wants the dinosaur, claiming it as their own.
Do local indian tribes own it? The rancher's family? The government?
This series of books has been picked up for another Netflix season and you can see some related TV focus in the story line. But it's still riveting and very visually written. I felt myself transported.
And I got lost in the book…a good sign for a murder mystery.
