An odd green glow high up on one of the peaks on the island of Puerto Rico has government scientists confused and questioning its origin. Brad Stout is tasked to make sense of this URP (Unexplained Radiation Phenomenon) in Borrowed Bones by Charles A. Salter. With orders straight from the White House, Brad is put in charge of a secure lab which is bound to secrecy in order to find an answer to the mystery before it threatens to destroy the entire earth in something resembling a reversal of the Big Bang Theory. However, someone is trying to stop him and making it a permanent end seems to be their ultimate goal. The next twist of fate is that they are located on the inside of the lab. Is that why the beautiful Lindsey Cowell is so eagerly by Brad’s side or is she simply trying to seduce him for her own personal reasons? Brad has an overwhelming puzzle to solve and only a short period of time in which to solve it before the entire earth goes BANG!

Charles A. Salter has hit another home run with Borrowed Bones. This thrilling mystery takes a firm grip on the reader from the beginning and tightens it throughout. The twists and turns of the plot continue to deepen the mystery as Brad comes closer and closer to the truth. Having a saboteur on the inside makes it even more challenging and places suspicion on those who are nearest to him. The hair-raising, intense, and brilliantly woven mystery of Borrowed Bones will have readers on the edge of their seats with their hearts pounding.
