This abridged audiocassette (still 5 hours on 4 tapes) provides a fascinating glimpse into one of Temperence Brennan's earliest cases. From her internal conflict over whether to let Andrew Ryan into her life, versus letting go of her husband, whom she is seperated from, but still friendly with, to the unforseeable plot twists and the very real possibility of Brennan losing her career to false acusations, the listener is kept involved throughout.

Kathy Reich's Tempe Brennan books keep your interest all the way through and this one about a plane crash in NC with unexpected complications is not an exception. This is a great audio book that keeps you on edge all the way through. Well read by Katherine Borowitz

For those of you who seem to want more detailed reviews ..... here goes.

Tempe Brennan is back in action at the scene of a gruesome commercial plane crash in the mountains of North Carolina (yes, there ARE mountains in NC). The gritty realism of the crash site, combined with Reichs' unflinching descriptions of the victims' remains form the backdrop for a mystery that begins when Brennan finds a human foot that she suspects is NOT part of the crash scene!

As a result of the "power plays" with the various agency's investigating the crash site, Brennan is pulled from the case, her name smeared across the press, and her professional reputation put in jeapardy when she is accused of "tampering with a crash site". If you follow Reichs' books, you know that Tempe Brennan is a straight-arrow forensic anthropoligist whose work is always ethical and scrupulous. So what's going on here? This question forms the backbone of this story! Brennan struggles to do two things at once, one - clear her name, and solve the mystery of the foot.

This audio (the book too) gives you some satisfying plot twists throughout. This is a strong and well done mystery, and Tempe Brennan is back in form as the strong, no nonsense and likeable woman we came to know in "Deja Dead". Her interactions with a brand new character (an irrascible big dog, who is both her bane and companion)add a level of much welcome humor to this otherwise grim tale.

As in all other Reich books, this one is well written, fast paced, and making you want for more. Sorta makes you want to check out all the other books in this series (I wish I had more of them to swap).

Take a chance, check it out, it's only 2 credits :-))

Abridged edition. 4 cassettes. Running time 5 hours.

Good book. Temperance is as compelling as always with her sense of right and wrong and her belief that every victim deserves to have his/her story told. Even when she is being set-up to look incompetent and her long-time friends are not standing behind her, she stands true to her beliefs.

This was the first book I'd read by this author and I did enjoy it. I find it comparable to the Patricia Cornwell books, if you enjoy those you'll certainly like this. I had just gotten into the television show and was expecting it to be more like the show, and it wasn't. Still, I really liked the book and do recommend it.

Another great story. This one starts with a major plane crash in the nountains of NC only to morph into a second mystery. The parallel mysteries interwine and feed off each other. Although set in the US, Ryan was a part of this story; and ex-husband Pete made a significant showing too.

These books are nothing like the TV series, although I now enjoy both. I like that there is a French connection - I get to read the French and know what it says before the translation - although there is not too much French. The mystery is great - sure there is murder and mayhem - but it is more about putting the pieces together than gore. You also get to learn about a lot science and procedure - very interesting stuff, especially when it is not in a textbook!

By far the best in the series so far. The plot was more believable than the last two and the story was much more interesting.

Another amazing Tempe Brennan book.
After a deadly plane crash in the Smoky Mountains, Brennan finds something that doesn't seem to belong. While trying to solve the mystery, she gets fired from the DMORT team, but not even that can stop her.
Set in North Carolina, it's full of mysterious plot twists, a witty sense of humor, some quality time with Andrew Ryan, and a new furry companion. Definitely a must-read!!

The fourth installment of Temperance Brennen is more spread out than the others and definitely not very focused. For most of the book you're not sure what the most important thing she is working on, but than that makes a good mystery. The wrap up of the book brings it back to the level of the others.

An investigation of a plane crash turns up body parts that can't be matched to the plane's passenger list, and the search to solve the riddle puts forensic anthropologist Temperance Brennan in mortal danger. This was an engaging read, but so dense with plot threads and red herrings that one eventually gives up and just goes along for the ride.

Fascinating insight into accident investigations

What the author does with this series: Kathy Reichs started off slow but gets better and better. This is part of the series called the Tempe Brenner â Forensic Anthropologist. This paragraph applies to all books in this series. Tempe is a anthropologist who works for medical examiners in Montreal, Quebec and Charlotte North Caroline

Even though the books are often very detailed in both location and the examination of the remains, the story often moves faster than you expect.

Do you need to read this series in order: YES or you miss out on too much of the back stories.

Triggers: This is a book about medical examiners at its core, so lots of references to dead bodies, some are described in strong detail (in a forensic way).Our anthropologist ends up in some life threatening situations and on a couple of occasions in the series, animals are killed, sometimes gratuitously. Relatives of Tempe often in up wounded as the bad persons try to get to her through her family.

This book had a very different setting, which made it great.

"Fans of TV's CSI: Crime Scene Investigation should be in heaven" (People) stepping into the world of forensic anthropologist Dr. Temperance Brennan, star of Kathy Reichs' electrifyingly authentic bestsellers. She has a passion for the truth . . . and this time, it's taking her down. A commercial airliner disaster has brought Tempe Brennan to the North Carolina mountains as a member of the investigative agency DMORT. As bomb theories abound, Tempe soon discovers a jarring piece of evidence that raises dangerous questions -- and gets her thrown from the DMORT team. Relentless in her pursuit of its significance, Tempe uncovers a shocking, multilayered tale of deceit and depravity as she probes her way into frightening territory -- where someone wants her stopped in her tracks.
