#1 New York Times bestselling author Kathy Reichs delivers another "outstanding" book (Publishers Weekly) in her "cleverly plotted" (The New York Times) Temperance Brennan series, the inspiration for the hit FOX television series Bones.
There are 206 bones in the human body. Forensic anthropologists know them intimately, can use them to reconstruct every kind of violent end. When Tempe finds herself regaining consciousness in some kind of very small, very dark, very cold enclosed space—bound, hands to feet—Tempe begins slowly to reconstruct...
Tempe and Lieutenant Ryan had accompanied the recently discovered remains of a missing heiress from Montreal to the Chicago morgue. Suddenly, Tempe was accused of mishandling the autopsy—and the case. Back in Montreal, the corpse of a second elderly woman was found in the woods, and then a third. Seamlessly weaving between Tempe's present-tense terror as she's held captive and her memory of the cases of these murdered women, Reichs reveals the incredible devastation that would occur if a forensic colleague sabotaged work in the lab. The chemistry between Tempe and Ryan intensifies as this complex, riveting tale unfolds, proving once again, that Reichs is the dominant talent in forensic mystery writing.

"Although there's a bit too much forensic babble in this twelfth book about anthropologist Temperance Brennan, Linda Emond makes the frequent transitions from scientific jargon to intriguing murder mystery gracefully. The plot itself is also transitional and intriguing as well. As the story opens, Brennan awakes to find herself hog-tied and bottled up in some kind of earthen tomb. As she starts to put together how she got there, piece by piece, you shift from the tomb to the facts and histories behind three killings she had been investigating. Emond transitions from past to present and scene to scene adroitly. Her voice, unusually potent for a female reader, adds just the right touch to the several characters. And there's a big bonus included, too--the author's first Temperance Brennan thriller, DƒJË DEAD--for free! A.L.H (c) AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine"
