I hated this book. I got half way through this book and still couldn't get into it. It was extremely boring.I finally had to stop reading it.

Another excellent Kathy Reichs book. This one the story moved along nicely but the true mystery didn't appear until well over halfway through the book . . . so guessing the ending before the halfway point will be unlikely. Although I usually enjoy the interaction between Dr Brennan and Detective Ryan this one had less interaction and a whole lot of 'whining and second guessing' by Dr Brennan. I found this a detractor from the story line.

I really have an issue wit this series when the action takes place in Canada. The author feels a need to name every building and street in Quebec which is very distracting since I don't speak French and find myself trying to figure out whether she's talking about a street (irrelevant) or a building (also irrelevant). Even knowing that whatever she's referring to is not important, I can't help but pause and try to decipher its meaning. It's interesting that when Tempe is in the lower 48 (I like the sound of that), she isn't tempted to name everything she passes on the street. Why is it so important that she name every damn thing when she's in Canada?

Having said that, I must admit to liking this one even though it takes place in Canada. The story was enthralling. I just had to know who did it and why (other than he was a nutjob!). Of course, Tempe walks into a trap and drags her friend along for the ride. This is a given plot twist which appears in all the novels (as far as I've read anyway). Even though Tempe had major issues with Ryan, I still like him as her love interest. He's funny, gorgeous and romantic - hey what more could a girl as for?

This is the first book I've read by Reichs and I thoroughly enjoyed it. It has a rapidly moving plot and excellent character develelopment. I look forward to reading more by her.

Ver interesting morgue science. The main character, Temperance Brennan is very likeable and now there is a TV show about her.
