Book Description

Aug. 28 2012 Temperance Brennan
Kathy Reichs, #1 New York Times bestselling author and producer of the FOX televison hit Bones, is at her brilliant best in a riveting novel featuring forensic anthropologist Tempe Brennan—a story of infanticide, murder, and corruption, set in the high-stakes, high-danger world of diamond mining.

A woman calling herself Amy Roberts checks into a Montreal hospital complaining of uncontrolled bleeding. Doctors see evidence of a recent birth, but before they can act, Roberts disappears. Dispatched to the address she gave at the hospital, police discover bloody towels outside in a Dumpster. Fearing the worst, they call Temperance Brennan to investigate.

In a run-down apartment Tempe makes a ghastly discovery: the decomposing bodies of three infants. According to the landlord, a woman named Alma Rogers lives there. Then a man shows up looking for Alva Rodriguez. Are Amy Roberts, Alma Rogers, and Alva Rodriguez the same person? Did she kill her own babies? And where is she now?

Heading up the investigation is Tempe’s old flame, homicide detective Andrew Ryan. His counterpart from the Royal Canadian Mounted Police is sergeant Ollie Hasty, who happens to have a little history with Tempe himself, which she regrets. This unlikely trio follows the woman’s trail, first to Edmonton and then to Yellowknife, a remote diamond-mining city deep in the Northwest Territories. What they find in Yellowknife is more sinister than they ever could have imagined.

Crackling with sexual tension, whip-smart dialogue, and the startling plot twists Reichs delivers so well, Bones Are Forever is the fifteenth thrilling novel in Reichs’s “cleverly plotted and expertly maintained series” (The New York Times Book Review). With the FOX series Bones in its eighth season and her popularity at its broadest ever, Kathy Reichs has reached new heights in suspenseful storytelling.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not her best effort. Sept. 2 2012
As much as I love Kathy Reichs, this book left me feeling cheated. I've read and re-read everything she's published and I kept thinking while reading this, ghost-writer. I won't spoil the ending, but this book had none of the usual twists and turns that pepper all her other novels; then it just ends in a blood bath. If you haven't read anything of Kathy Reichs yet, better to start with Bones to Ashes or Deja Dead.

4.0 out of 5 stars Another great Bones book! July 31 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I've never been disappointed with any book in this series. This one was especially fun with the trip to Edmonton & then Yellowknife. The involvement of the RCMP was fun for me too. The research was obviously well done & the book was great to read!

4.0 out of 5 stars Location Canada! Eh! Dec 12 2013
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
Was so pleased to read about mystery in the Edmonton, AB and NWT - Yellowknife area! Having lived in the NWT for a decade, it felt like old home week. Have enjoyed other stories of Kathy Reichs better, but still an intersting one. Thank you for choosing our beautiful country as the centre of this story, Kathy!
