From the New York Times bestselling author of Speaking in Bones, the first Temperance Brennan novel in the “cleverly plotted and expertly maintained series” (The New York Times Book Review).

Her life is devoted to justice—even for those she never knew.

In the year since Temperance Brennan left behind a shaky marriage in North Carolina, work has often preempted her weekend plans to explore Quebec. When a female corpse is discovered meticulously dismembered and stashed in trash bags, Temperance detects an alarming pattern—and she plunges into a harrowing search for a killer. But her investigation is about to place those closest to her—her best friend and her own daughter—in mortal danger…

“A genius at building suspense” (Daily News, New York), Kathy Reichs’s Temperance Brennan books are ripe with intricate settings and memorable characters” (Milwaukee Journal Sentinel).

This book isn't easy to get into, and it isn't easy to finish it either. Like other reviewers, I expected to find a bit more humour and action in the story. I don't really see the connection between the television series and the book.That said, the story is well written and has a neat ending. A very average book.read more

Finished this one yesterday. It was pretty good, and interesting, but not different enough from the Scarpetta series to suit me. And maybe because I am not a loner, but I just want to scream at these women who go traipsing off doing dangerous things on their own. When Tempe sashayed off to the old seminary -- in the middle of the night in a storm! -- all alone, I wanted to shake her. Some of the things she did I found it hard to believe the police would not have taken care of. It is difficult to believe that Tempe had to act all alone in so many of her (usually) nighttime jaunts!So overall, I found the protagonist a bit unbelievable or at least foolhardy, while the mystery was pretty good. I'm not sure I'll dash off to get others in the series, though.read more

This was the first book by Kathy Reichs that I've read and it was the one that got me to read all the ones after that. I enjoyed the story, the characters, the plot and the forensics. The story wasn't too complicated to grasp. I was glad to discover that this wasn't a book like many others that I've read, in which everything turns out well and everyone survived. I've enjoyed reading this book, very much.

Temperance Brennan, an American forensic anthropologist working in Montreal, is personally offended by anonymity in death. If someone must die, at least let their name be known. After finding a dismembered and decapitated body dump site, warning bells ring in Tempe's head saying "Serial Killer". When she can't get the police, particularly Claudel, to even look into the possibility, Tempe decides to start her own investigation. Making herself the next target wasn't actually part of the plan. Reichs descriptions of Quebec ring true, and the French Canadian culture creates an interesting backdrop. The eleventh Temperance Brennan novel, Devil Bones, is currently on the best sellers' list. (FOX's Bones series is loosely based upon the life of Kathy Reichs, not upon the Temperance Brennan series.)
