Perfect for fans of hard-hitting, fast-paced thrillers, BODY AND BONE continues what LS Hawker does best: creating atmospheric, twisting narratives with strong female heroines that you can’t help but root for

by LS Hawker

LS Hawker’s debut novel, The Drowning Game, was recently nominated for Best Debut Thriller by the International Thriller Writers organization.  She continues her signature atmospheric, twisty suspenseful writing with BODY AND BONE (Witness Impulse; On-sale 5/3/16; e-ISBN 9780062435224; $2.99) which questions the nature of identity and how far a young mother is willing to go to run from the mistakes of her past.


He wants to destroy her reputation.
He wants to destroy her life.
He wants to destroy…her.


Nessa Donati used to be a happily married mother with a successful music blog and satellite radio show. But that was before her husband John relapsed on drugs and went missing. That was before he was presumed dead. And before she was framed for his murder.

When a commenter on Nessa’s blog starts harassing her online, Nessa shrugs it off. Trolls are a part of internet life. But eventually the troll begins threatening her safety and releasing personal details… details only her husband would know.

As Nessa’s life is dismantled piece by piece, her only option is to find John and put a stop to the lies. But when their son becomes a pawn in his twisted game, she must face a disturbing truth: Maybe John isn’t tormenting her, after all. But if he’s not…who is? And how far will this monster go to exact revenge?

BODY AND BONE takes online harassment to whole new extremes in this dangerously entertaining thriller that will keep readers on the edge of their seats.
