Author: Alison James
Beneath the water the body sank rapidly. Above her on dry land, the nightmare was just beginning. When Detective Erika Foster receives a tip-off that key evidence for a major narcotics case was stashed in a disused quarry on the outskirts of London, she orders for it to be searched. From the thick sludge the drugs are recovered, but so is the skeleton of a young child. The remains are quickly identified as seven-year-old Jessica Collins. The missing girl who made headline news twenty-six years ago. As Erika tries to piece together new evidence with the old, she must dig deeper and find out more about the fractured Collins family and the original detective, Amanda Baker. A woman plagued by her failure to find Jessica. Erika soon realises this is going to be one of the most complex and demanding cases she has ever taken on. Is the suspect someone close to home? Someone is keeping secrets. Someone who doesn't want this case solved. And they'll do anything to stop Erika from finding the truth.

Er sammelt aus Leidenschaft. Knochen. Menschliche Knochen. Doch das Herzstück fehlt ihm noch in seiner Sammlung. Die Knochen von Jakey. Einem sechsjährigen Jungen, der am Münchmeyer-Syndrom leidet, einer seltenen Knochenkrankheit, die Jakeys Körper langsam verknöchern lässt ... Den Knochensammler vergisst so schnell niemand mehr: Wie ein Schatten gleitet er durch Londons Straßen und verfolgt einen teuflischen Plan. Fiona Cummins‘ »Der Knochensammler – Die Ernte« ist ein schauderhaft genialer Thriller mit Bestseller-Format – so nervenzerfetzend wie Mo Hayders »Der Vogelmann«, so abgründig und faszinierend wie »Die Chemie des Todes«.
