In this enigmatic follow up to his critically acclaimed debut novel The Cuts that Cure, Arthur Herbert returns to the Texas-Mexico border with this saga of a small town’s bloody loss of innocence.
Amoret, Texas, 1982. Life along the border is harsh, but in a world where cultures work together to carve a living from the desert landscape, Blaine Beckett lives a life of isolation. A transplanted Boston intellectual, for twenty years locals have viewed him as a snob, a misanthrope, an outsider. He seems content to stand apart until one night when he vanishes into thin air amid signs of foul play.
Noah Grady, the town doctor, is a charming and popular good ol’ boy. He’s also a keeper of secrets, both the town’s and his own. He watches from afar as the mystery of Blaine’s disappearance unravels and rumors fly. Were the incipient cartels responsible? Was it a local with a grudge? Or did Blaine himself orchestrate his own disappearance? Then the unthinkable happens, and Noah begins to realize he’s considered a suspect.
Paced like a lit fuse and full of dizzying plot twists, The Bones of Amoret is a riveting whodunit that will keep you guessing all the way to its shocking conclusion.

Review

I am fortunate in that I get to read a lot of really good books.  The best of them have characters that you never forget.  Having an interesting plot is important, as is the setting and of course timeline, but a well-developed character is something you never forget.  Herbert has achieved this in the Bones of Amoret.

Herbert’s characters are unique.  From the small-town doctor who risks everything to care for the immigrants crossing the border from Mexico, the gay Mexican ranch hand with terrible anger mixed with a drinking problem, and the amazing homeless vet that lives in the caves outside the city, the list of characters goes on and on.  They are all three-dimensional, with depth and personality that makes the reader continue to think about them long after the book has been read.  

My personal favorite is Doctor Noah Grady, a man that I cannot help but compare to Walt Longmire; a man with strong values who lives them out each and every day, working to care for what and who he loves.  There are layers upon layers in this man and Herbert expertly handles them all.  I loved this book, the setting, the plot, the mystery but I will never forget Noah Grady.  Thanks for the wonderful read, Arthur Herbert!

Arthur Herbert was born and raised in small town Texas. He worked on offshore oil rigs, as a bartender, a landscaper at a trailer park, and as a social worker before going to medical school. For the last eighteen years, he’s worked as a trauma and burn surgeon, operating on all ages of injured patients. He continues to run a thriving practice.
He’s won multiple awards for his scientific writing, and his first novel, The Cuts that Cure, spent ten days as an Amazon #1 Best Seller. His second novel, The Bones of Amoret, will be released on April 1, 2022 through Stitched Smile Publishers. Arthur currently lives in New Orleans, with his wife Amy and their dogs.

  1. I completely agree with you, Julie, that I will never forget these characters. I found myself at times wondering how the author came up with the eclectic mix of characters from Dr. Grady to Hector to the Sheriff. Just a fantastic story! Thank you for sharing!
