Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"Fans of TV's C.S.I.: Crime Scene Investigation should be in heaven" (People) stepping into the world of forensic anthropologist Dr. Temperance Brennan, star of Kathy Reichs's electrifyingly authentic bestsellers.

She works with the dead but she works for the living.

"Down time" is not a phrase in Tempe Brennan's vocabulary: in the midst of a sizzling North Carolina summer, a string of disturbing cases puts her vacation plans on hold. A fiery plane crash, a newborn's remains, a mysterious cache unearthed on a remote farm...all hide secrets that Tempe must extract from the bones of the dead. But X-rays and DNA can't tell her what she needs to know most urgently: who is closing in on Tempe and her family — and how far they will go to keep her from uncovering the truth.

Review:

"Reichs has built a reputation on cut-to-the-chase writing and swift plotting, and this latest effort delivers everything her fans have come to expect." Publishers Weekly

Review:

"[F]ascinating, grueling, and ultimately exhausting. Solid, overplotted work from an author so determined to emerge from Patricia Cornwell's long shadow that she's willing to try every trick in the coroner's book." Kirkus Reviews

Review:

"A comeback that's definitely hard to put down." Booklist

Review:

"Her intimate knowledge of forensics and crime scene investigations makes for an honest rendition of a thrilling tale." Library Journal

Review:

"[T]he science is fascinating, and every minute in the morgue with Tempe is golden." Marilyn Stasio, The New York Times Book Review

Review:

"[Reichs's] most valuable tool is her expertise....She's the real thing." Newsday

Synopsis:

The world-class forensic anthropologist and New York Times bestselling author explores the shocking story behind a puzzling cache of bones in this powerful Temperance Brennan thriller. Includes a new bonus Epilogue.

She works with the dead, but she works for the living.

"Down time" is not a phrase in Tempe Brennan's vocabulary. A string of disturbing cases has put her vacation plans on hold; instead, she heads to the lab to analyze charred remains from a suspicious fire, and a mysterious black residue from a small plane crash. But most troubling of all are the bones. . . . Tempe's daughter's new boyfriend invites them to a picnic — a pig pickin' — in the North Carolina countryside, where a cache of bones turns up. But are they animal or human? X-rays and DNA may link the crimes, but they can't reveal who is closing in on Tempe and her daughter — and how far they will go to keep her from uncovering the truth.

About the Author

Kathy Reichs, like her fictional creation, Temperance Brennan, is forensic anthropologist for the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner, State of North Carolina, and for the Laboratoire de Sciences Judiciaires et de Médecine Légale for the province of Quebec. She is one of only fifty forensic anthropologists certified by the American Board of Forensic Anthropology. A professor of anthropology at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte, Dr. Reichs received her Ph.D. at Northwestern. She now divides her time between Charlotte and Montreal.
