About the Book:
When forensic anthropologist Dr Tempe Brennan is approached by amateur detective Hazel ‘Lucky’ Strike, at first she is inclined to dismiss the woman’s claims that she’s matched a previously unidentified set of remains with a name.
But as the words of a terrified young woman echo round her office from an audio recorder found near where the bones were discovered, something about the story won’t let Tempe go.
As Tempe investigates further she finds herself involved in a case more complicated and horrifying than she could ever have imagined.
This is yet another novel revolving around Dr. Temperance Brennan, a character we have come to admire and love. Kathy Reichs manages to keep the suspense once more and ensures that the reader will remain hooked. I have always enjoyed reading the books by Kathy Reichs and this one was yet another addition to my ever growing collection. It is as delightful as the rest and the author doesn’t disappoint with the plot.
With Tempe’s ever growing curiosity, her daughter’s occasional calls, encounters with her ex-husband Peter and her love, Ryan, the story is packed with all the elements of a wonderful Temperence Brennan adventure. A sKeptic until shown proof, Tempe at first dismisses the information provided by ‘Lucky’, an amateur detective who comes to her about some unidentified remains. However, when an audio recorder left by ‘Lucky’ is found, Tempe can no longer stay out investigating and finds herself in many a sticky situation. When this is followed by death and then more mysterious events, we know that things have definitely taken a turn for the worse. With a spine chilling climax, this story will keep the reader on the edge of their seat.
The story is fast paced and uses just the right amount of forensic terminology used so as to keep the reader hooked and entertained. This is a page turner and the reader is sure in for a huge treat! A huge shout out to author Kathy Reichs and I am sure all her fans, like me, cannot wait for more!
