A collection of lonely souls look for one last shot at happiness. Instead they're trapped in the never-ending cycle of false hope and true despair—and deadly violence—that is Booth City.

Homicide cops Ike Horner and Eliza Ochoa are on the scene of a body dump in a riverfront park, crouching over the freezing corpse of yet another working girl—cut up in all the most delicate places. Soon Ike and Eliza find themselves on a fatal mission as they unravel a conspiracy that stretches from the darkest holes in Booth to the fringes of its most influential families. As the murder investigation hurtles toward its startling conclusion, Ike and Eliza uncover terrifying secrets that are buried too close to home. . .

Praise for Bone Factory

“Booth City is as frightening as the Sin City portrayed in Frank Miller's graphic novels…. The conclusion is one of the most harrowing in recent memory.” —Booklist

“Sidor proved in his well-received first novel, Skin River, that he knows a thing or two about deviant human behavior. Now he delivers an equally laudable mystery...that delves even deeper into the darker reaches of the criminal mind...Sidor's subjects may be grisly, but his writing style is often poetic.” —Publishers Weekly

“Stomach-churning suspense at its best.” —Lansing State Journal

“Sidor conjures up a grim realm of sleazy hotels, bars, and squad rooms…. It's a hard-boiled world, presented in a brisk, brutal shorthand as tough as its subject.” —Providence Journal-Bulletin

“Sidor is a prince of darkness, steeped in the noir tradition and not giving an inch. That said, he is also bountifully talented.” —Kirkus Reviews
