Kat Makris was just a kid when her father spun wild and gruesome bedtime stories about Baboulas, the Greek boogeyman, a fearsome creature with a penchant for stealing gold and clashing with the gods. Now Kat is twenty-eight, single, an only child halfway to orphaned, and her father's weirdo fairytales lie crumpled at the bottom of her childhood closet, in the house where she still lives. But when her father is abducted by men with crooked noses, she discovers his old stories were true-true crime, that is. What does Kat know about crime? Nothing, that's what. Her only transgression, to date, is underage drinking. Even her driving record is pristine. Her couch-to-cubicle existence shattered by his kidnapping, and the discovery of his secret and deadly past as a mobster for the Greek mafia, Kat is determined to find her father, even if it means forming an unholy and felonious alliance with Greece's boogeyman ...

After a covert attempt to buy Marika a pregnancy test fails, everyone in Greece wants to know who is the father of Kat's baby? If a rampant case of mistaken pregnancy isn't bad enough, an encounter with Greece's National Intelligence Agency turns sour fast, and soon Kat finds herself stuck in Naples, Italy, with a probably-pregnant Marika and a crime lord's nephew for company. No money. No food. Working cellphone? Fuggedaboutit. What they do have is a gun, thanks to their new-and suspect-guardian angel, a hobo with urinary issues and what used to be a very nice coat. There's no way out of Naples; not in their condition. Not unless Kat can scrounge up some intelligence-which is even more difficult than it sounds, given the company she's keeping-for the NIS. Unfortunately the way out involves a deadly game of cops, forgers, and bakers. Hot cop Detective Nikos Melas can't save her, and the equally tasty, far more deadly Xander is busy watching over Grandma, who is in the hospital after a table-dancing incident gone awry. Which leaves Kat on her own, more or less, to strike a deal with Mario Fontana, a criminal with Camorra connections ... and a professional relationship with Kat's missing father.

It's not easy being dead. Just ask Kat Makris. She's stuck in an underground bunker, watching her own funeral, where more people are laughing than crying. Being dead has other consequences, too. Her face is in all the papers, her bank is convinced she's an identity thief, and the sexy Detective Melas is under siege by his trampy ex-girlfriend, who happens to work for Greece's version of the CIA. The timing couldn't be worse; she just figured out where her missing father might be. Escaping Grandma's cozy bunker is the only way find her dad-a feat that would be simpler if she could access her own bank account and ride something other than the local bus. But it's not all doom and gloom. Marika's unborn baby is sending her psychic messages-messages that send Kat all the way to Germany, where Grandma's oldest nemesis is cooking up some payback ...

With Grandma's second best henchman and his wife tagging along, Katerina Makris is back in Portland to untangle some of her kidnapped father's secrets. However, she gets sidetracked when she discovers her house is one corpse less empty than it was when she left. To complicate things, a pair of American cops are snooping around, asking questions about her missing father and a fellow detective they can't seem to locate ... When it becomes apparent that her father's secrets extend beyond the small safe in the bathroom wall, Kat races back to Greece, where she discovers the sexy, and very-very-bad-for-her, Detective Nikos Melas has been involved in a deadly stakeout. And Grandma has a new/old enemy who wouldn't mind getting cozy with Kat, especially now that Grandma's reign is growing shorter by the day. It's a long, hot Greek summer and the bodies are stacking up ... and exploding. Everyone on the dark side wants Kat to play on their team. Kat's just trying to find her dad. What's a mostly decent woman to do, and what are these green bits in Grandma's cookies?

"An intriguing dark psychological thriller--truly brilliant!" --Lisa Jackson I have a gardener's inherent belief in the natural order of things. Soft?petalled flowers that go to seed. The resolute passage of the seasons. Swallows that fly thousands of miles to follow the eternal summer. Children who don't die before their parents. When Kate receives a phone call with news that Rosie Anderson is missing, she's stunned and disturbed. Rosie is eighteen, the same age as Kate's daughter, and a beautiful, quiet, and kind young woman. Though the locals are optimistic--girls like Rosie don't get into real trouble--Kate's sense of foreboding is confirmed when Rosie is found fatally beaten and stabbed. Who would kill the perfect daughter, from the perfect family? Yet the more Kate entwines herself with the Andersons--graceful mother Jo, renowned journalist father Neal, watchful younger sister Delphine--the more she is convinced that not everything is as it seems. Anonymous notes arrive, urging Kate to unravel the tangled threads of Rosie's life and death, though she has no idea where they will lead. Weaving flashbacks from Rosie's perspective into a tautly plotted narrative, The Bones of You is a gripping, haunting novel of sacrifices and lies, desperation and love. "Unusual and haunting." --Library Journal "Suspenseful and poignant." --Publishers Weekly " "A compelling debut." --Woman and Home "A star in the making." --The Daily Mail
