When Reverend Renner’s mentor gives him a brass rubbing of a skeleton, nicknamed Bonesy, a chain of calamity ensues. Bonesy breaks free from its frame and begins a violent, chaotic search for--what? It’s up to Renner and his investigative partner, ex-linebacker Dale Quist, to uncover Bonesy’s spectral motives. Bonesy takes Renner & Quist on their most treacherous, rollicking supernatural adventure yet, a journey that will lead them from the ghost of Carole Lombard to the fens of Tudor England. Join them--in Bonesy.
