9780099556534: Deadly Decisions: (Temperance Brennan 3)

The third 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.

A nine-year-old girl is killed in crossfire on her way to ballet class. Soon afterwards, the body of a teenager killed in North Carolina is found hundreds of miles away.

Forensic anthropologist Dr Temperance Brennan knows she must stay professional, but when the young girl’s body is wheeled into the morgue she cannot help but react.

And when an exhumation reveals the bones of yet another innocent in a hidden grave close to a biker gang headquarters, Tempe begins a lone and risky investigation into the lawless underworld of organised crime.

Review:

Kathy Reichs' forensic anthropologist Tempe Brennan is arguably the best of the current crop of thriller pathologists--quiet in her desire to avenge the helpless and coldly clinical in her intelligence. Her third outing, Deadly Decisions, pits her reconstructive skills against a bunch of Hell's Angels with a taste for ultra-violence. She pieces together the jigsaw fragments of identical twins and she finds herself engaged in identifying the teenage girl whose skull and long bones turned up near the grave of some earlier victims of inter-gang strife. In addition to the usual fascinating material about the identification of human bones, Reichs tells us all about the way that biker gangs have become a serious part of the criminal underworld, a subculture with a taste for mayhem and with rules it is death to break. This tactful abridgement for audio includes all the details one could wish of Tempe's gruesome trade, but not at the expense of her bad hair days, her irritating nephew and the rest of her messy private life. Katherine Borowitz's quiet characterisation brings us close to the cool intense delicacy of Reichs's character, without ever quite becoming so quiet as to be monotonous. -- Running time approx 5 hours -- Roz Kaveney

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)

" Brennan is a winner, and so is Reichs" ( Daily News)

" A truly impressive writer" ( We Love This Book)
