You can’t help but be impressed when you visit Judy T. Bishop’s author page on Amazon. Add to her writer “Wow” factor the huge number of 5-star reviews she has on each book and you know this is an author worth getting to know. Bishop enjoys providing “a touch of the supernatural with a side of the paranormal” for her readers and they will certainly get both in Of Body and Bone. That close duo of Daniels and Remalla, who have starred in her various series, get their courage and beliefs tested when they come up against a formidable foe, Rudy, whose extreme and weird ability to immobilize or kill people makes him difficult to capture…if they even can. He is driven by his grief over losing his young son, but don’t feel sorry for him: his subsequent actions of kidnapping young boys to teach them how they too can use powers like his is anything but endearing. Rudy puts the dynamic duo through the wringer as they try to locate the latest kidnapped boy. Do they succeed and if so, at what cost?
Bishop keeps you in suspense in Of Body and Bone and even in the last few pages, she throws a curveball at Remalla that neither he nor readers saw coming. At a guess, that unexpected twist will kick off the next book in this psychological thriller series. I truly enjoy reading Judy T. Bishop’s novels: she uses dialogue rather than descriptions to create tension and keep the plot pace moving quickly. That reliance on dialogue also accounts for how realistic her characters are i.e. one easily senses the sinister or good behind what is and isn’t being said. Oh, incidentally, the next time your house lights suddenly go out, if you sense a strange buzzing nearby, be wary of what or whom you can’t see. It might just be Rudy!
