The Bones of Amoret is an exciting thriller by Arthur Herbert. The story follows a west Texan doctor in the early 80s as he tries to deal with being tied to a crime that could not only ruin his own life but the lives of his family and the desperate Mexicans he helps cross the border. These exciting conflicts, as well as others, make this book a real page-turner.
The Bones of Amoret by Aurthur Herbert is foremost a murder mystery. When a well-known figure in town goes missing and evidence aims toward a local doctor, the man goes as far as possible to prove that he had nothing to do with the man’s assumed murder. This, of course, leads to an exciting culmination that leads to an ending that honestly left me a bit surprised. Up until the twist, I expected the culprit to be someone entirely different. This excited me even more because there are very few books I cannot guess the ending to these days. It happens when you read often.
Alongside the exciting and shocking well-written tale, the story is exciting throughout the entire telling. Given to us from the point of view of the main character who lived through the whole ordeal as he shares it with someone. As such we get a wonderful internal dialogue about the whole ordeal giving The Bones of Amoret the last kick it needs to be one of the most exciting books I have read this year.
I strongly suggest The Bones of Amoret to anyone who is looking for an exciting mystery with a great twist ending.
