NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLERThe evidence is irrefutable: In sixteen New York Times bestsellers over the course of as many years, Kathy Reichs has proven herself "a genius at building suspense" (New York Daily News). In forensic anthropologist Temperance Brennan, Reichs has created a detective fiction heroine who's brilliant to the bone. "Every minute in the morgue with Tempe is golden," says The New York Times Book Review. In the acclaimed author's thrilling new novel, Brennan is at the top of her game in a battle of wits against the most monstrous adversary she has ever encountered. Unexpectedly called in to the Charlotte PD's Cold Case Unit, Dr. Temperance Brennan wonders why she's been asked to meet with a homicide cop who's a long way from his own jurisdiction.

Fans of Tempe will not be disappointed with this instalment of the series. The relationship between herself and her mother is shifting in the face of illness and as her mother plays a small but significant part in solving the mystery.

A satisfying read, better written than most in the genre. I'll read more in this series.

Have read a couple of her books and was very disappointed in both. She seems to have a very high opinion of herself.

Always enjoy Reich's books. In this one, Temperance faces a demon from one of her past cases--never resolved, it appears that the killer has resurfaced, not in Quebec, but in Vermont. Ryan and Temperance re-connect on this case but it's not the way it used to be. The writing is not as strong in this book, but Reichs is so good, her books still ring true.

One thing about Kathy Reichs - you can never be sure if the plots in the Tempe Brennan series are figments of her imagination, or stories based on real-life cases she has worked on as a forensic anthropologist. This book is one of Reichs' best, weaving an investigation that has elements in the two jurisdictions where she works in real life - Québec and North Carolina. As usual, she avoids the "CSI effect" and takes pains to stress DNA and other forensics tests often take weeks, not hours - something that is no one's friend when a serial killer is on the loose. She also keeps the story going as one suspect is dropped and another is added. Charming ending to this installment.

I enjoyed this one as I haven't done with several of her recent novels. This one is shorter with a broader scope; fascinating from the forensic point of view as all the links with unsolved previous cases are established.As a result, I will never be able to view maple syrup in the same light again!

Excellent read, as always.

Another satisfying read from Kathy Reichs, a real life forensic anthropologist.
