I was rather disappointed in this book. First, there was very little forensics because Tempe was locked out of the case by her new boss in NC. Lots of talk about conspiracy theories, some which are totally outlandish and others that may actually be true. A conspiracy theory is only that until it's proven to be fact. The book ended rather abruptly without all the ends tied up. I had expected it to go on for at least 40-50 more pages, but what followed were author notes, acknowledgements and what I guess could be called a novella about how Tempe went from archaeology to forensic anthropology. Actually, that was had a lot more forensics and was more interesting that the prior 440+ pages. Sadly, Reichs like some other of my favorite authors is starting to let her politics interfere with her fiction, and Tempe is starting to come off as a snooty liberal. People who are open to "conspiracy theories" wear "off the rack" suits and "Walmart Womens Plus" dresses. "America is armed to the teeth and no one is safe" is a bit over the top. And then there's the little dig about Republicans. Do authors not care that they're alienating their conservative fans?
