This was another fun mystery with great science bits thrown in, multiple subplots to keep the reader guessing, and Tempes convoluted personal life to boot. The pacing was great with no dull moments and more than one disgruntled coworker to suspect of inter-office politics (or ruder shenanigans).
There were two main plots that intertwined with one another, convoluting each other, and making it interesting for the reader to pick out which facts went with each mystery. While parts of each plot were a little predictable, the reason why Tempe is tied in a dark, miserable place (dont worry, the book opens with that scene) isnt revealed until the last few chapters. My one tinsy criticism is that one of the baddies was so easy to spot, so obvious. But then I was left wondering if this person was The Main Baddie (so kudos for having multiple baddies, not so great that one was totally obvious).
The Narration: Linda Emond was a great narrator, was Temperance Brennan. I like her no-nonsense voice. Her French pronunciation was clear and easy to follow for this English speaker with only 2 years of high school French under her belt.
