Named for the character in... more » the Longfellow poem, Evangeline was the most exotic person in Tempe's eight-year-old world. When Evangeline disappeared, Tempe was warned not to search for her, that the girl was "dangerous."
Thirty years later, flooded with memories, Tempe cannot help wondering if this skeleton could be the friend she lost so many years ago. And what is the meaning of the strange skeletal lesions found on the bones of the young girl?
Meanwhile, Tempe's beau, Ryan, investigates a series of cold cases. Three girls dead. Four missing. Could the New Brunswick skeleton be part of the pattern? As Tempe draws on the latest advances in forensic anthropology to penetrate the past, Ryan hunts down a serial predator.

I've read all of her books and I have to say I find the French part of the book very hard to get past. I had a lot of trouble figuring out who she was talking about, places she was going, what division of the government was involved, etc., etc. The story is intriguing, as they always are, but there are lots of other authors out there who don't inundate the reader with French, which really interferes with my enjoyment of this series. Having said all that negativity, I still enjoyed the book and would recommend it.

I really enjoy the plot twists and turns. The main character is a forensic ME and is interesting and realistic. I haven't read all of the Temperance Brennan books, but the ones I have are not disappointing. All are good reads and are not predictable.
Another "Bones" story set in Canada, but tied to Tempe's fond childhood memories of summers with grandma at Pawley's Island in the Carolinas. Less forensics and more good ole' detective work without too much of the relationship garbage that ruins some of Reichs' other books for me. Tempe's sister Harry plays a major role in this who-done-it and she's an interesting character. Poetry analysis adds a new twist. But I could do with less French (or MORE translation)!
