Format: Mass Market Paperback
Kathy Reichs' latest Tempe Brennan thriller takes place in the lesser-visited half of Brennan's two homes, North Carolina. When a commercial jetliner crashes into the mountains of North Carolina, Tempe Brennan answers the call to help dig through the devastation. Little does she know that even the horrors involved in this gruesome task will not be the worst she is going to face in the coming days and weeks.
Always one to take great pride in her work and her professionalism, Tempe is devastated when charges are brought against her and she is thrown from the DMORT investigation and recovery team. Determined to clear her name, Tempe soon finds herself in a web of deceit and corruption with a history - and a present - that will rock the state to its core.
As always, Reichs presents a crisp story with compelling characters and a beautiful tangle of mysteries. Readers often compare Tempe Brennan to Patricia Cornwell's Kay Scarpetta, and I can't say that I disagree with the assessment. However, I find that I am more willing to relate to Tempe Brennan than I am Kay Scarpetta, though I'm not sure why. Perhaps Reichs has not yet put Brennan in quite as many personally harrowing and extraordinary situations as Cornwell has placed Scarpetta in. Maybe it's the lack of multiple professional degrees (Scarpetta having both law and medical degrees). Or maybe it's just that Brennan is (marginally) closer to my age. Whatever it is, as much as I love Kay Scarpetta, I'm finding that I like Tempe Brennan even more.
I found Fatal Voyage to be very interesting, fast-paced, with believable characters and a plot that left your mind racing. I do think it would be of benefit to read Reichs' previous Brennan works to get a more complete feel for the characters and for Tempe's history, some of which plays into the plot of this novel. All in all, a great read, and does nothing to dissipate my overall admiration of Kathy Reichs.

Tempe Brennan is called in to a plane crash in NC. Andy Ryan is there because his partner was escorting a prisoner back to Canada. They save a foot from coyotes, only to find that the foot doesn't belong to anyone on the flight's passenger list. As Tempe works on the identification, she finds that she is suddenly persona non grata at the crash site. Apparently the person who wants her off the site is none other that the Lieutenant Governor Dashwood. Why?
This is the best yet of Reichs' books. They seem to get better and better. I read it in one sitting, I was sleepy the next day at work, but I just couldn't put it down!

Temperance Brennan, book4

This novel follows Ms Reichs other bestsellers by providing the reader with engaging characters, a good sense of humour, facts that give it a plausible and realistic dimension. This author is remarkably talented in describing forensic details for the layman bringing a morbid topic to light with numerous intrigues that include lots of twists and turns.

"Fatal Voyage" opens with an air disaster, a horrific plane crash in the mountains of North Carolina, illustrating clearly the drama that can result in the death of so many people. The questions of safety and cover up quickly surface in this chilling tale.

Called to help identify the victims and assist with establishing the cause of the disaster is Tempe Brennan, a forensic anthropologist and a member of DMORT (Disaster Mortuary Operational Response). Detective Andrew Ryan, Tempe's friend, is also on the scene investigating the death of his partner and prisoner who were on the domed flight. The investigation is barely underway, when Tempe discovers a severed foot that doesn't match anyone on the airline manifest. As Tempe probes for information, she encounters more and more road blocks...Is someone trying to sabotage the investigation?...

Ms Reichs interweaves the ongoing relationship Tempe has with her ex-husband and Andrew Ryan giving a dab of suspense and sexual tension to pique the readers' interest without removing anything from the core of the story. She also introduces a large cast of colourful secondary characters; making it a challenge to keep track of them. The light hearted and simple narration moves at a fast pace making a very entertaining and satisfying mystery highlighting the incredible strength needed to face adversity.

Yeah, after reading "Fatal Voyage," I honestly believe that Kathy Reichs is a better writer than Patricia Cornwell. Both Temperance Brennan & Kay Scarpetta are similar and strong characters (except maybe in "Black Notice"), but I would say that Brennan is more realistic and more enjoyable to read about. I found "Fatal Voyage" to be extremely different then Reichs's previous novels. Mostly Brennan is in the morgue cutting up and doing an autopsy on ONE person. In "Fatal Voyage," an aircraft has crashed in the mountains outside of Virginia, taking down an entire school club organization with it. Tempe has to sift through hundreds of bodies and plane wreckage to try and determine if the crash was an accident or a deliberate act of murder. Authorities claim that the crash was deliberate and try to determine if the passengers had any major enemies. Most of their investigation turns up nothing and leave the investigators stumped. Brennan, along with her secret love from previous novels, accidently stumble upon some shocking news about the local town around the crash site. She discovers that there were an extremely high amount of deaths over the last ten years. As she investigates more she gets uncomfortable feelings from the local townspeople that she discovered something secretive about the town. The ending of "Fatal Voyage" was extremely surprising as the story took off on two different directions. The question for us Cornwell/Reichs readers is: Will "Isle of Dogs" be better than "Fatal Voyage?" I guess we'll have to wait until October 8 to find out!....
