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.

Tempe is again into investigating instead of just working with bones. She is aided by her sister, Harry, and the usual cast. Things aren't going too good in her personal life.

Good book, as usual from Kathy Reichs. Bring on the next!

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)!

This was an engaging story, filled with a lot of very technical forensic explanations. Some of it is interesting, but some you have to just breeze over. Also, the french names and repetitive text gets confusing at times. I wish the author would spend more time on the relationship between the characters, and less on the history and science.

This was an action packed thriller that twists and turns until you have no idea whether you are upside down or sideways. Great mystery, great science, great personality interplay. I've followed Kathy Reichs from the beginning, but even if you've never read a Temperance Brennan book, you will love this one. One warning for those of you just coming to the series because of the TV show, the books are very different. The TV show is based *very* loosely on the books.

One of her best storylines. Just shy of enough hints of what was wrong with the skeleton to guess before hand and very nice tie-in to the story as a whole. She did tidied-up the loose ends/side detractions a little fast as she ended the story. As for the personnally relationship between Tempe and Ryan, I didn't like the track she took but I guess to continue with their relationship in future books it needed this turn. Looking forward to the next book to come out soon.
