Publisher Description

Forensic anthropologist Kathy Reichs exploded onto bestseller lists worldwide with her phenomenal debut novel "Deja Dead" — and introduced " a] brilliant heroine" "(Glamour)" in league with Patricia Cornwell's Kay Scarpetta. Dr. Temperance Brennan, Quebec's director of forensic anthropology, now returns in a thrilling new investigation into the secrets of the dead.

In the bitter cold of a Montreal winter, Tempe Brennan is digging for a corpse buried more than a century ago. Although Tempe thrives on such enigmas from the past, it's a chain of contemporary deaths and disappearances that has seized her attention — and she alone is ideally placed to make a chilling connection among the seemingly unrelated events. At the crime scene, at the morgue, and in the lab, Tempe probes a mystery that sweeps from a deadly Quebec fire to startling discoveries in the Carolinas, and culminates in Montreal with a terrifying showdown — a nerve-shattering test of both her forensic expertise and her skills for survival.

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 "It is becoming apparent that Reichs is not just "as good as" Cornwell, she has become the finer writer" Daily Express "Reichs has reasserted her supremacy in the field" Independent
