"The Bone Curse is a strong medical thriller—inclusive, skillfully written, and inviting." —Foreword Reviews
 
"Realistic details of Ben's hospital clerkship as he and other med students diagnose patients help ground the story's paranormal elements. ... The novel's strength lies in the author's sensitive commentary on adult responsibilities and mental illness." —Publishers Weekly
 
"A tense, perceptive tale of an investigation into a terrifying threat."—Kirkus Reviews
 
Medicine has no cure for evil...
 
Ben Oris, a rational-minded med student from Philadelphia, gets cut by an old bone while touring the Paris catacombs. His companion Laurette, a public health student from Haiti, senses danger and worries an evil curse now runs through him.
 
Ben scoffs at the idea—he simply has a wound that won’t heal—and back home he returns to his stressful clerkship at the hospital. But when people close to him succumb to a grisly illness and a dark priest pursues him, his skepticism wavers. Could a bone from an 18th century skeleton with a frightening history really cause modern-day disease?
 
With the help of Laurette, he scrambles to find a cure through Vodou before more of his loved ones die. But first, he must battle the mysterious priest who’s bent on vengeance and determined to have Ben’s blood as his own.
