Description

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

The evidence is irrefutable: In sixteen New York Times bestsellers over the course of as many years, Kathy Reichs has proven herself “a genius at building suspense” (New York Daily News). In forensic anthropologist Temperance Brennan, Reichs has created a detective fiction heroine who’s brilliant to the bone. “Every minute in the morgue with Tempe is golden,” says The New York Times Book Review. In the acclaimed author’s thrilling new novel, Brennan is at the top of her game in a battle of wits against the most monstrous adversary she has ever encountered.
 
Unexpectedly called in to the Charlotte PD’s Cold Case Unit, Dr. Temperance Brennan wonders why she’s been asked to meet with a homicide cop who’s a long way from his own jurisdiction. The shocking answer: Two child murders, separated by thousands of miles, have one thing in common—the killer. Years ago, Anique Pomerleau kidnapped and murdered a string of girls in Canada, then narrowly eluded capture. It was a devastating defeat for her pursuers, Brennan and police detective Andrew Ryan. Now, as if summoned from their nightmares, Pomerleau has resurfaced in the United States, linked to victims in Vermont and North Carolina. When another child is snatched, the reign of terror promises to continue—unless Brennan can rise to the challenge and make good on her second chance to stop a psychopath.
 
But Brennan will have to draw her bitter ex-partner out of exile, keep the local police and feds from one another’s throats, and face more than just her own demons as she stalks the deadliest of predators into the darkest depths of madness.
 
In Bones Never Lie, Kathy Reichs never fails to satisfy readers looking for psychological suspense that’s more than skin-deep.

Praise for the novels of Kathy Reichs
 
“Kathy Reichs writes smart—no, make that brilliant—mysteries that are as realistic as nonfiction and as fast-paced as the best thrillers about Jack Reacher, or Alex Cross.”—James Patterson
 
“Nobody does forensics thrillers like Kathy Reichs. She’s the real deal.”—David Baldacci
 
“Kathy Reichs continues to be one of the most distinctive and talented writers in the genre. Her legion of readers worldwide will agree with me when I declare that the more books she writes, the more enthusiastic fans she’ll garner.”—Sandra Brown
 
“Each book in Kathy Reichs’s fantastic Temperance Brennan series is better than the last. They’re filled with riveting twists and turns—and no matter how many books she writes, I just can’t get enough!”—Lisa Scottoline
 
“I love Kathy Reichs‎—always scary, always suspenseful, and I always learn something.”—Lee Child

“Reichs, a forensic anthropologist, makes her crime novels intriguingly realistic.”—Entertainment Weekly
 
“Tempe Brennan is the lab lady most likely to dethrone Patricia Cornwell’s Kay Scarpetta.”—USA Today
 
“Reichs always delivers a pulse-pounding story.”—Publishers Weekly

From Publishers Weekly

Jul 28, 2014 – In bestseller Reichs's exciting, if overly complex, 17th novel featuring Temperance Brennan (after 2013's Bones of the Lost), the forensic anthropologist attends a meeting at the Law Enforcement Center in Charlotte, N.C., at which Vermont detective Umparo Rodas presents DNA evidence linking the unsolved murder of an 11-year-old Charlotte girl to Canadian serial killer Anique Pomerleau, who managed to elude Brennan and her superior, lead detective Andrew Ryan, in 2004's Monday Mourning. Brennan first has to find Ryan, who has withdrawn from the world, and persuade him to return to find Pomerleau. Tie-ins with other old cases, signs that the killer is targeting Brennan's own neighborhood, and Brennan's skill at interpreting confusing, potentially misleading forensic evidence build the suspense. Brennan's strained relations with Ryan, the antics of crass detective Erskine "Skinny" Slidell, and the uncanny aid provided by Brennan's mother, Daisy, provide grist for series fans when Brennan finally unmasks a surprising killer.

Customer Reviews

Honest, Intelligent, and Well-Written Mystery

Bones Never Lie is not for someone looking for a light read. This is only the second Kathy Reichs book I've read and both were loaded with a lot of technical forensic and medical details. That said, she manages to educate the reader on such matters without bogging down the story. I find that amazing.

Bones Never Lie is an engrossing story about a serial killer of children (a warning for those of you who can't quite stomach such things). It just about breaks your heart, but it's an honest book. Kathy Reichs also does a great job with her characters, and I liked her technique of short sentence fragments during scenes of tension. Talk about showing instead of telling! I found myself tensing up along with Temperance Brennan as I read them.

If you're looking for an intelligent well-written mystery, Bones Never Lie will satisfy those requirements. If you're looking for a light beach read that doesn't require much thinking, look elsewhere.

Bones Never Lie

Good read, even through it is overly wordy. I shall read more of the" Bones Books"

It stunk

The book was too long. I had the murderer figured out midway. There was no profiling and no real search for the next victim. I skipped pages just to finish. And the get together at the end was too brief. Could have been a LOT better.
