The Bones of Amoret

The Bones of Amoret is a story told from the perspective of an 84-year-old doctor, Noah Grady. As the doctor approaches the final stage of his life, he decides to share a mysterious story from his past with a reporter nearly forty years after its occurrence. Set in 1982, the events took place in the outskirts of the small town of Amoret, Texas, where an outsider, Blaine Beckett, who often isolated himself from society, suddenly disappeared without a trace. Noah Grady, the town’s local doctor, shares his observations about this unusual case and how events unfolded around the man’s vanishing.

As Noah narrates this mystery, he realizes that seemingly from afar, his observations were much closer to him and the local community and that the circumstances surrounding the man’s disappearance are possibly part of a much larger, sinister strategy.

Herbert creates a compelling novel that keeps the reader in constant suspense until the end. The characters are interesting and realistic, with relatable flaws, but still likable. I found the small town setting provided a dark and mysterious backdrop to the story. The author tells the story from the protagonist’s point of view, reeling the reader in to get more involved as the plot progresses. I enjoyed the story’s unexpected twists throughout, which keep you guessing as to who is to be trusted and who is suspect.

The Bones of Amoret is a great page-turner that’s full of unexpected developments and thrilling surprises while maintaining a strong level of suspense that will keep readers engaged. I highly recommend The Bones of Amoret for the author’s brilliant writing style and use of a creative and original plot. This is a worthwhile read for fans of mysteries and psychological thrillers that enjoy a fast-paced story that delivers unpredictable and exciting developments.
