FORENSIC ANTHROPOLOGIST DR. TEMPERANCE BRENNAN HAS A PASSION FOR THE TRUTH...AND THIS TIME, IT'S TAKING HER DOWN.
A commercial jetliner disaster has brought Tempe Brennan to the North Carolina mountains as a member of the investigative agency DMORT. As bomb theories abound, Tempe soon discovers a jarring piece of evidence that raises dangerous questions -- and gets her thrown from the DMORT team. Relentless in her pursuit of its significance, Tempe uncovers a shocking, multilayered tale of deceit and depravity as she probes her way into frightening territory -- where someone wants her stopped in her tracks.
When a plane crashes high in the mountains of North Carolina, Tempe Brennan is one of the first on the scene. As a forensic anthropologist she serves on the response team. The task that confronts her is a sad and sickening one.
The fourth Temperance Brennan thriller, now in paperback, following the outstanding sales success of "Deja Dead, Death du Jour" and "Deadly Decisions". An Arrow superlead, with a huge, high-profile campaign to match. A big summer bestseller. "Deep in Patricia Cornwell territory, I think she outdoes the queen of "slice 'em and dice 'em" fiction... Terrific" Mark Timlin, "Independent On Sunday".
