Bones to Ashes - Kathy Reichs

Bones to Ashes - Kathy Reichs

Kathy Reichs is something special. Since achieving a secure position in the upper echelons ... more

of crime writers, she has refused to rest on her
laurels and (with only the occasional misstep) has
consolidated her success with a series of novels
that subtly finesse the formula that has gleaned
her so many readers.Bones to Ashes is the latest
title to add lustre to her reputation. Dr
Temperance Brennan is examining the skeleton of a
young girl, and finds herself losing the necessary
distance she tries to maintain from all the cases
she works on. Are the bones deformed or diseased?
Or has some post-mortem damage been wrought upon
them? Coroner Yves Bradette seems prepared file
this information in the Dead Letters Department --
an ancient case, with no current relevance. But
(as so often before) Tempe has other ideas, and
something is stirring in her synapses -- a mystery
involving the disappearance of a childhood friend.
Matters are complicated when Detective Andrew Ryan
(assigned to an allied case) asks Tempe to help
with three missing persons  a trio of unidentified
female corpses. Is there a serial killer at work?
There is often a defining moment when the work of
a much-loved author imperceptibly becomes
over-familiar, and readers have less enthusiasm
for their work. Thankfully, on the evidence of
Bones to Ashes, that day is quite some time in the
future for Kathy Reichs, as all the elements that
have made her books so involving are still being
polished and refined here. Followers of Temperance
Brennan need not hesitate to add this to their
collection. --Barry Forshaw

From Ashes to Ashes, to Bones To Ashes.

AdvantagesAnother absolutely rivetting story from Reichs

DisadvantagesOver far too soon.

"Bones to Ashes by Kathy Reichs. ~ ~ The Book Series explained ~ ~ This is the tenth book in the Temperance Brennan series. The books have subsequently spawned a TV series called Bones. I have to say, if you're a fan of the TV series, there are marked differences in the books, even so far as differences in main characters so don't be surprised if you pick up a book to find Angela et al aren't popping out of the page at you but this shouldn't stop ..."

Product Information for "Bones to Ashes - Kathy Reichs" »

Manufacturer's product description

The skeleton is that of a young girl, no more than fourteen years old - and forensic anthropologist Dr Temperance Brennan is struggling to keep her emotions in check. Coroner Yves Bradette is being evasive, insisting the bones are ancient and of no interest. But it doesn't quite add up, and a frustrated Tempe is convinced that Bradette is hiding something...It's not Tempe's case; she's overwhelmed with more urgent work in the lab...But the nagging in her subconscious won't let up. A memory triggered, deep in her hindbrain - the disappearance of a childhood friend; no warning, no explanation...Working on instinct, Tempe takes matters into her own hands. But she couldn't have predicted where this case would lead, or the horrors it would eventually uncover...Can Tempe maintain a professional distance as the past catches up with her in this, her most deeply personal case yet?
