Once again she writes an excellent story. This one brought almost ex-hubby, Pete, into the picture and gave him more depth. However the the childish reaction between Pete and Ryan got tedious -- which was probably the point. The story line was interesting and the twist, as expected by us faithful readers, well done.
Kathy Reichs writes outstanding books in the genre of crime scene investigation, specifically forensic anthropology. This one is a corker, and the clues to all these disparate corpses ends up pointing in one direction. Pretty cool, how in the end she ties them all together. I give it 5 stars.
I couldn't finish it! What a shame, I guess the writing is more geared toward the TV show now. The continuous NONSTOP "witty diaglog" was like a Gilmore Girls episode, I had to put it down.
This was a good forensic mystery set in Charleston, South Carolina. I liked how Tempe eventually solved the murders by following the smallest detail no matter where it led.
My first read of the "Bones" series by Kathy Reichs. I really like the TV show and forensics stories in general so wanted to read the books by the anthropologist who started the frenzy!
If you love Dr. Brennan on the TV series, be ready-- the name and occupation are the same, but the personality is nothing like the Temperance in the book!
"Break No Bones" is the 9th novel in the series-- it's a good solid mystery with a love triangle thrown in! Nice setting in Charleston area.
Includes a great afterword that explains where her stories come from as well as the definitions that distinguish pathologist from anthropologist. Will keep reading, but will go back and read in order.
