Publisher Comments:

Forensic anthropologist Kathy Reichs exploded onto bestseller lists worldwide with her phenomenal debut novel andlt;Iandgt;Dand#233;jand#224; Deadandlt;/Iandgt; — and introduced "[a] brilliant heroine" andlt;Iandgt;(Glamour)andlt;/Iandgt; in league with Patricia Cornwell's Kay Scarpetta. Dr. Temperance Brennan, Quebec's director of forensic anthropology, now returns in a thrilling new investigation into the secrets of the dead. andlt;BRandgt; In the bitter cold of a Montreal winter, Tempe Brennan is digging for a corpse buried more than a century ago. Although Tempe thrives on such enigmas from the past, it's a chain of contemporary deaths and disappearances that has seized her attention — and she alone is ideally placed to make a chilling connection among the seemingly unrelated events. At the crime scene, at the morgue, and in the lab, Tempe probes a mystery that sweeps from a deadly Quebec fire to startling discoveries in the Carolinas, and culminates in Montreal with a terrifying showdown — a nerve-shattering test of both her forensic expertise and her skills for survival.

Synopsis:

Forensic anthropologist Temperance Brennan returns in this follow-up to the bestselling "Deja Dead". This time, Brennan digs for a corpse where a nun who died a century ago should be lying in her grave. Sister Elizabeth Nicolet's life and death provides a welcome contrast to discoveries at a burning chalet, where scorched bodies are found.
