Bonnie Ramthun's Eileen Reed mystery novels include Ground Zero, Earthquake Games and The Thirteenth Skull. Earthquake Games was a finalist for Colorado Book of the Year and hailed by the Washington Post for its unrelenting suspense. Bonnie followed her Eileen Reed series with the middle grade Torin Sinclair mysteries beginning with The White Gates, published by Random House. The White Gates was a Junior Library Guild premiere selection and a finalist for the Missouri Truman award. Roscoe, the sequel, has been praised as a page turner and heart warmer all in one.
