9780099492382: 206 Bones: (Temperance Brennan 12)

The gripping Temperance Brennan novel from world-class forensic anthropologist Kathy Reichs, the international no. 1 bestselling crime thriller writer and the inspiration behind the hit TV series Bones.

When Dr Temperance Brennan is accused of mishandling the autopsy of a missing heiress, a routine case swiftly turns sinister. But before Tempe can get to the one man with the information she needs, he turns up dead.

In Montreal, three elderly women are found murdered, their bodies brutally discarded. Even though the clues don’t add up, Tempe is certain of a link between their deaths and that of the heiress.

Has Tempe made grave errors, or is she being sabotaged by an unseen enemy? What is frighteningly clear is that more than just Tempe's career is at stake. Her life is also at risk.

Review:

Temperance Brennan swims to consciousness, queasily aware that her feet are painfully tied to her hands. She finds that she is in an enclosed space, and keeps her fear at bay by remembering what she has been doing recently -- travelling with the body of an heiress to a Chicago morgue. Does this have something to do with her grim predicament? Or is it concerned with a recent phone call, an accusation of abuse of practice in the pathology lab? But the man who could have shed light on this call is dead…

With 206 Bones, we're back in the world of Kathy Reichs' resourceful forensic pathologist Dr Temperance Brennan, and it's territory that crime fiction admirers have come to love.

The relationship between Brennan and her colleague Ryan (with whom she was transporting the dead woman's remains) is as sharply handled as anything in previous Reichs novels, and that's no mean achievement -- the often caustic interaction between Tempe, her friends, relatives and colleagues has been one of the pleasures of the series. Here, the narrative has greater urgency than we’ve seen in some time; Reichs' beleaguered protagonist has to draw together the cases of three murdered women to solve a lethal mystery -- and, what’s more, she has to deal with the possibility of sabotage by a fellow member of her forensic laboratory.

Katy Reichs' debut novel Déjà Dead was as impressive a calling card as any author might aspire to. Reichs' strong-minded heroine was utterly plausible, and her creator subsequently placed her in plots that were as well-engineered as anything in the genre. Needless to say, the unflinching confrontation with the grimmer side of human behavior quickly ensured that Reichs' books were not for the squeamish, but for those with a taste for the strongest variety of crime writing, her books quickly became unmissable. And 206 Bones -- with its dark mysteries involving the bodies of dead women -- is Reichs on top form. -- Barry Forshaw

Review:

"You’ll want to keep turning the pages long after lights out to find out what happens next … Reichs’ real-life expertise gives her novels an authenticity that most other crime novelists would kill for" ( Daily Express)

" With Kathy Reichs the reader knows they're in the hands of an expert" ( Sunday Express)

"Reichs' seamless blending of fascinating science and dead-on psychological portrayals, not to mention a whirlwind of a plot, make [her novels] a must read" ( Jeffery Deaver)

"Reichs has reasserted her supremacy in the field. 206 Bones is vintage Reichs" ( Independent)

"It is becoming apparent that Reichs is not just 'as good as' Cornwell, she has become the finer writer" ( Daily Express)
