"Reichs always delivers a pulse-pounding story." (Publishers Weekly)

According to Kathy Reichs' notes at the end of the book where she explains how the story came about ... while she does base Tempe's adventures on her own work, of course, the books are all fiction. However, it is interesting to discover just how those mysteries come about and at put together, and, of course, the details of bodies and bones are based on the author's 'other job' - anthropology.
Our heroine also gets to travel again in this storyline which starts off with a dead baby and bones. As often happens, Tempe teams up with homicide detective Andrew Ryan who travels with her, but there is also another man involved that she was briefly involved with and who appears very inclined to renew their relationship ... something that causes a great deal of tension between the two men right from the start. And poor Tempe, of course, is right in the middle and soon giving up in trying to set the record straight, never mind intervening when both male egos call each other names. To the reader, however, this is a very amusing situtation, causing some light entertainment and laughter in-between some heart-breaking situations and discoveries. And, or course, Tempe is getting herself into some hairy situations along the way ...
This latest story in the 'Bones' series is yet another most intriguing, charismatic and enjoyable mystery that starts off with what seems obvious and ends on a completely different note, with completely and utterly unexpected twists and turns in-between. If you love mystery and suspense, this is an absolute must-read!
With her story, we embarked across Canada and lived
