6 of 6 people found the following review helpful By Donald Mitchell #1 HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWER on Sept. 6 2011
Format: Hardcover
"She opens her mouth with wisdom,
And on her tongue is the law of kindness." -- Proverbs 31:26 (NKJV)

Flash and Bones is an unusually good title for this book, but if you are like me you'll just think it's a pun about "flesh and bones" until near the end when Dr. Reichs reveals more about that aspect of the story.

For those who would like to see the romance with Ryan develop, this book will be a disappointment. Those who enjoy "Skinny" Slidell, however, will have plenty to amuse themselves as Tempe and he team up to find out what happened to several missing persons. Much additional humor comes from Tempe being asked to consult with her "ex" husband's small-brained fiancee, Summer, about the details of their wedding.

Dr. Reichs fits as much NASCAR into the story as she can without turning Tempe into a race driver, and those who love NASCAR will mostly appreciate the tribute . . . even if the track area becomes involved in crimes you won't see at any NASCAR race.

For those who like puzzles, this one starts out with some pretty unusual remains and spreads out to include some exotic poisons.

The story's main weaknesses come in two areas, the right person just naturally turning up at the right time and in the right place to push the story along . . . and a motive for murder that I didn't find all that convincing.

The story moves swiftly along and provides the kind of good relaxing entertainment that makes late summer murder mystery reading so much fun.

I'm sure, however, that Flash and Bones will be far from your favorite book in the series. Do read it. There are hints here of character developments to come that will undoubtedly make a lot more sense if you've read Flash and Bones.

Reichs' latest keeps you engaged and turning pages, but you find yourself skimming and even skipping bits. Much too much on NASCAR; much too little of the forensic science I expected. The plot works to keep you reading, but when you finish it's a let-down. Another case of a good, established author trying something new (I suspect for the sake of sales) and not meeting her own benchmark.

Kathy Reichs is still on the top of her game. Really enjoyed the story line, couldn't wait to read the next page to see where we were going.

Format: Paperback
I love Kathy Reichs' "Temperance Brennan" novels, all of which I have read, but this one was a decided disappointment. Maybe it was too much "forumula" - some of her classic lines have become too repetitive (e.g."Sidell wiggled his fingers. Give me more."). Maybe it was the almost total absence of Andrew Ryan, with whom I personally want Tempe to hook up again. Maybe it was the dominant presence of a cop character whom I (and apparently Tempe, at least until now) dislike. It just wasn't good enough to hold my interest. I hope that changes next time.
