Why haven't any of Simon Kernicks books been picked up and adapted for tv or film yet?.The bloke really knows how to write heart pounding,nail biting,action packed thrillers packed with realistic characters,loads of twists and although some of the chapters can be quite long at times not a single bit of padding,every word is necessary to the story.His books are consistently well written,gripping thrill rides and The Bone Field is no exception,it's a fast paced roller coaster from beginning to end.
In 1990 21 year old Kitty Sinn and her boyfriend went on a holiday to Thailand where Kitty mysteriously disappeared.Recently bones have been discovered and the boyfriend and his lawyer have come forward and informed DI Ray Mason that he knows what happened to Kitty and who killed her.The hunt for the truth finds Ray and PI Tina Boyd confronting a number of ruthless,cold blooded villains who will go to extreme lengths to prevent their secrets from being uncovered.
Ray reminds me of Mike Bolt a character that I have a bit of a sold spot for but who unfortunately does not appear in this book,Ray like Mike will go to any lengths to get the information that he needs even if it means breaking a few laws and maybe a few bones along the way.I have always liked Tina Boyd,both Tina and Ray have been through hell in the past and they make a very good team because their characters are so alike.
The mystery of what had happened to Kitty was very intreguing and were my favourite parts of the book.The villains of the story are the usual evil,twisted individuals that you expect to find in a book by Simon Kernick including one villain who was so cold and emotionless I felt chills everytime he appeared throughout the book.Read more ›
And the ending - a total cliffhanger, setting up a sequel - means either I have to read more of this inanity or settle for just not knowing. Either way - NOT HAPPY.
DS Ray Mason, whom we met in The Witness, is called to a house by Henry Forbes and his family solicitor as Henry says he has some information about a missing girl. Kitty Sinn went missing in Thailand but Henry already knows that recent remains found in the UK are those of his missing girlfriend. Unfortunately, someone doesn’t want Henry to talk. And with that introduction The Bone Field really draws the reader into the mystery of the missing Kitty-how has the body of a girl who went missing thousands of miles away ended up being uncovered in the UK and what did Henry know that contributed to his own murder?
The plot that unravels here is so involving that this book becomes unputdownable quite early on. I loved Ray and his “get the job done at all costs” mentality. But this was taken to a whole new level once he teamed up with Tina Boyd. Yes, Tina is back and thrown into the deep end straight away. And as all the threads started coming together and the body count began to rise, I found myself totally enthralled by the action and was caught out as the storyline didnt follow the path I had predicted.
I can really recommend this book to both fans of Simon Kernick and to anyone new to his work. I didn’t realise until after I had finished that it seems to be the start of a new series so it would a great point to start for any newbies! And I definitely can’t wait to see what happens next!
So commences one of the best thrillers I have read in a long time. Simon Kernick beautifully lays out the enigma and his plot unravels little by little. Ray is the central strong character in this book, but he is ably assisted by an almost equal character in ex-cop, now PI, Tina Boyd, herself no stranger to controversy. Does one sense romance in the air?
Nicely balancing this pair of ‘goodies’ is one of the best ‘baddies I’ve come across. He is Mergim Nushi, aka Mr Bone, aka The Dark Man, and we will read more of him, I am sure, in the subsequent books in the series.
The best way of describing this first book is as an ‘amuse bouche’ of a classical literary banquet. Your palate has been tantalised and you want more……
I look forward to the feast!

Improbable plot. Cardboard characters. I hope Mr Kernick's tank hasn't run dry.Published 4 days ago by B. Powell
I have read all Kernick's book so I obviously like him but I found this deteriorated very quickly into a non-event and the ending is a bit cheeky. Read morePublished 5 days ago by A. F. Prestwich
