US Marshal Dean Honeybone and his lover, Jean-Luc are in Tasmania for their adopted daughter, Kaia Pendleton’s tenth birthday. However, Dean must leave and travel to the small island of Bruny when Cho Paek, a student on a field trip, is reported missing. Because of the secret circumstances surrounding the missing girl’s family, US Marshals have a special interest in this case.

Bruny is book three in the Honeybone series. In this episode, Dean’s impressive skills of interviewing a witness, in addition to extracting information, are exhibited. Proficient at interpreting body language, Dean gathers clues by separating truth from lies through his keen observation, gaining insight into the unlawful actions and who played a key role in Cho’s disappearance. The well written plot is the heartrending reality of the many senseless crimes that are still committed in today’s world and the officers of the law who are on a quest to bring criminals to justice. The characters are believable. Also, the wonderful guru of culture, A. J. Llewellyn features Kaia’s ancestor Truganini, the last full-blood Tasmanian Aborigine 1812-1876, who has a memorial site on Bruny. This is a thought provoking as well as enjoyable installment in the Honeybone series.
