4.0 out of 5 stars absorbing reading 20 Sept. 2007
By Konrad Baumeister - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Nasaw typically writes a great thriller, and this is no exception. The disheveled former FBI agent Pender is back on stage to bring another serial killer to justice. In this case, the stage is the fictional island of St Luke (think US Virgin Islands), and the serial killer(s) are already quite advanced in their careers. Nasaw spends some time going into their motivations, which are fascinating and well-thought out; he develops several characters fully and dramatically; and he effectively uses the island culture, its people, its history, and its geography as well. Nasaw is a pro and knows how to write a tight story.

This kind of book is never going to appear in the literature section of the library, but if you are looking for a great summer crime story, you could do a lot worse than to read 27 Bones, or any other of Nasaw's books for that matter.

4.0 out of 5 stars GOOD ENTERTAINMENT 22 Nov. 2008
By D. Meyers - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Twenty Seven Bones starts quickly with a prologue that grabs the reader and sets the stage for a page-turner. With a story line that is intimately connected to island tribal rituals (which may be fact or fiction) the book has an eerie, believable quality. When two serial killers get introduced to these tribal practices, the stage is set for a killing spree on an island influenced by ancient Danish dynasties. An adventurous pace continuing right up to the last chapter and characters that were believable and well described were strengths. The book's weakness involved the author's quasi-pornographic style. I am not sure who the author was targeting, but other than twenty-something males, the sophomoric fixation with the "big uns" and the "tee tees" went beyond titilating to a nauseating level. A controlled level of seductivity would have been more intrigueing. In other words, this is not a book I would recommend to my mother.

5.0 out of 5 stars Quite a page turner! 16 Aug. 2011
By Shawna - Published on Amazon.com

3.0 out of 5 stars Serial Killers in the Sun 22 April 2011
By The Amester - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
I will not repeat the plot of this book which others have already done and done better than I.

I was very disappointed in this book mainly because the serial murderers were marginal to the story. I enjoy crime fiction and, for me, the battle between good and evil is where all the tension and interest come from. The bad guy(s) must be as compelling as the good guy. In this story, the married perverted psychopathic serial killers started off so full of promise. But, very soon, they became just plain old boring. Their twisted motivation suddenly became secondary. The author made the error of making his antagonists silly, incomprehendsible and - worst of all - dull!

Most of the characters on Saint Luke are moderately interesting. But, moderate interest just isn't what I want to feel when reading a book. Strangely, I became more involved in the love story between the middle-ages FBI dectective and the mysterious "woman-with-a-past" than any other part of the plot. Other characters were flat.

I agree that the ending was pretty anti-climactic.

You won't hate the book but I suggest you lower your expectations before you start reading. This is not a thriller.
