Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Kathy Reichs—#1 New York Times bestselling author and producer of the FOX television hit Bones—returns with the thirteenth riveting novel featuring forensic anthropologist Dr. Temperance Brennan.

 

John Lowery was declared dead in 1968—the victim of a Huey crash in Vietnam, his body buried long ago in North Carolina. Four decades later, Temperance Brennan is called to the scene of a drowning in Hemmingford, Quebec. The victim appears to have died while in the midst of a bizarre sexual practice. The corpse is later identified as John Lowery. But how could Lowery have died twice, and how did an American soldier end up in Canada?

 

Tempe sets off for the answer, exhuming Lowerys grave in North Carolina and taking the remains to Hawaii for reanalysis—to the headquarters of JPAC, the U.S. militarys Joint POW/ MIA Accounting Command, which strives to recover Americans who have died in past conflicts. In Hawaii, Tempe is joined by her colleague and ex-lover Detective Andrew Ryan (how “ex” is he?) and by her daughter, who is recovering from her own tragic loss. Soon another set of remains is located, with Lowerys dog tags tangled among them. Three bodies—all identified as Lowery.

 

And then Tempe is contacted by Hadley Perry, Honolulus flamboyant medical examiner, who needs help identifying the remains of an adolescent boy found offshore. Was he the victim of a shark attack? Or something much more sinister?

 

A complex and riveting tale of deceit and murder unfolds in this, the thirteenth thrilling novel in Reichss “cleverly plotted and expertly maintained series” (The New York Times Book Review). With the smash hit Bones now in its fifth season and in full syndication—and her most recent novel, 206 Bones, an instant New York Times bestseller—Kathy Reichs is at the top of her game.

Synopsis:

#1 New York Times bestselling author Kathy Reichs, a producer of the Fox television hit Bones , returns with a riveting new novel featuring America’s favorite forensic anthropologist, Tempe Brennan.

The New York Times Book Review hailed the Tempe Brennan novels as a “cleverly plotted and expertly maintained series.” Spider Bones opens as Temperance Brennan is called to the scene of a drowning in Hemmingford, Quebec. The victim appears to have died while in the midst of a bizarre sexual practice. The body is identified as a man originally declared dead in 1968—the victim of a Huey crash in Vietnam. Tempe exhumes the soldier’s corpse from his grave in North Carolina and flies with the remains to Hawaii for a reanalysis of the bones. But it’s not long before another set of remains are found with the first victim’s dog tags tangled amongst them. There are now two unidentified bodies—both with strange connections. Meanwhile, the Honolulu medical examiner asks Tempe for help with remains found offshore—from yet another victim. Is it the victim of a shark attack? Or something much more sinister…
