"Winning character in Sarah
Hamilton ..." Writers' Digest judge
Author Donan Berg's Debut Murder/Mystery Novel
Respected, church-going Sarah Hamilton
anguished for a decade with an emotional skeleton.
When a real human skeleton is found in her midwest
town's old factory, Sarah is caught not only with the prospect of her secret past becoming town gossip, but of having her
husband and adopted daughter drawn into solving the ten-year mystery of A Body to Bones.
One clue, surmised to be scratches by the skeleton before dying, implicates more than one resident in Sarah's
town of 842, where her husband publishes the Pioneer Ledger. Gossip, missing money, tension, and real peril
exist when Sarah finds out the real killer still resides in town ready to kill again.
And it could be her.
A Body To Bones is a First Skeleton Series Mystery.

sample of what the review said about The Bones Dance Foxtrot:
Five Star Review - The Bones Dance Foxtrot The Bones Dance Foxtrot, a Second Skeleton Series Mystery, by author Donan Berg has received
a five star spotlight review by Feathered Quill Book Reviews. Read the complete review by Will Gabbert at www.featheredquill.com. The reviewer, Feathered Quill Book Reviews, has received the 2009 Writers Choice Award sponsored by Writer
A multi-starred review also appears at www.goodreads.com .
Quill said in summary: "If you enjoy a good murder mystery with twists, turns, false leads, a little gambling,
betrayal, clues left in the unlikeliest of places and a hidden stash of bank loot, then pick up a copy of The Bones Dance
The review continued: "Author Donan Berg spins a twisted plot of murder, suspicion, multiple
clues and budding romance in The Bones Dance Foxtrot. Berg takes the time to introduce the reader to Jake Brown, with all
his insecurities and problems,and builds him into a character that the reader cares about. The other main characters involved
in the mystery, Emily, Kate, Patricia, Clem, and even Chief R. P. Coltraine have distinct personalities. The locales, too,
come to life as places like the diner, Sadie's, with plates clanking and the aroma of the day's specials drifting through
"The police and detectives who are working to solve the case are given almost as much attention as
the lead characters and it's fun to go back and forth between their investigative work, false leads, and guess work and then
follow Jake and his friends.
"The reader may believe that all is solved well before the end of The Bones Dance
Foxtrot, but rest assured, the author has a few more tricks up his sleeve."
