Product Description

Review

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

About the Author

Kathy Reichs, like her character Temperance Brennan, is a forensic anthropologist, formerly for the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner in North Carolina and currently for the Laboratoire de sciences judiciaires et de médecine légale for the province of Quebec. Reichs’s first book, Déja Dead, catapulted her to fame when it became a New York Times bestseller and won the 1997 Ellis Award for Best First Novel.

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.

I have always enjoyed Kathy's books and I was excited to listen to this one as it was set in my home town and along the route my husband and I truck to every week. Unfortunately, I am a detail person, and her depiction of Yellowknife and the surrounding area were so off that it started frustrating me so I had to quit listening it.
Others may not mind the story, as they do not know the north like we do. In June it is beautiful and warm and the sun is up for 22 hrs a day. Just one small aggravating point.

Dead babies to diamonds, Bones are Forever takes Dr. Temperance Brennan from Montreal to Edmonton to Yellowknife. A glimpse into the mineral rights issues in the Northwest Territories, as well as a keen mystery, trying to determine the cause of multiple babies' deaths.

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!

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!

I have not completed reading this book but I have found much of it has too much unnecessary esplanations of things that does not related closely to the story and could have been eliminated. Other than that the story line is not what I would rate as a gripping story.

It's absolutely amazing that Kathy Reichs can describe the most obscure details and still make it sound interesting. And I don't mean a meander explanation of a dull surroundings but a detailes description of how a scull is comprised and the bones in the hand for example - very short, very interesting and you can really picture just what Tempe sees and works with. Amazing!
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!

It's become an annual tradition to buy the latest Kathy Reichs book for my wife at Christmas. She didn't put the book down until she had it finished so I would say that it is another good book in the series.
