Lee Goldberg’s latest novel is “Bone Canyon.” A catastrophic wildfire scorches the Santa Monica Mountains, exposing the charred remains of a woman who disappeared years ago. The investigation is assigned to Eve Ronin, the youngest homicide detective in the L.A. County’s Sheriff’s department. Bones don’t lie – and these have a horrific story to tell – unearthing dark secrets.
