Review

Winner, Bay Area Independent Publishers Association (BAIPA) Best Book Award, 2015

Get Swept Away!

Bones in the Wash is a flashflood of intrigue that will sweep you away into a vortex of murder, politics, and romance! The rush of the impending national election is mirrored in gloriously vivid descriptions of the New Mexico scenery and history, and in the hidden scandals of family businesses, local corruption, and interpersonal relationships. Clouds of exposure hang over everyone, and with parallel stories of the Democratic and Republican election tactics, novice campaigner Sierra Leon's and Mayor Tomas Zamara's personal lives keep the suspense going. Can secrets be kept? Who can be trusted?

John Bryne Barry has a gift for giving us characters that are well defined - expressing realistically the thoughts, feelings, and motivations of both men and women. It felt as if the author was really a husband and wife team. The political storyline is also well balanced and so convincing you almost think it is a recap of the 2008 election. And if you haven't visited New Mexico, make this murder mystery your first trip--you can feel the sunshine, see the wonders of its natural landscapes, and smell those green sauced enchiladas! This is a great read--what a way to spend a weekend!

--Jean Huckins

About the Author

John Byrne Barry wrote his first book-length project in fifth-grade at Kilmer School in Chicago—a 140-page treatise on dinosaurs. One page for each dinosaur, and lots of white space. He’s been writing ever since—magazine and newspaper stories, political comedy, and plays. He's even written advice columns. His first novel, Wasted, is a murder mystery set in the garbage/recycling universe in Berkeley, California. He lives in Mill Valley, California, with his wife and family.
