Bones to Ashes Kathy Reichs Genre: Crime Fiction I remember a few years ago a group of us at work used to all read the Kathy Reichs Tempe Brennan novels and we took it in turns to buy the copies and share them.

Satisfactory

Profair plot; well realised characters

Conssome dull pages; no real excitement

Product Information : 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?
