Description

#1 New York Times bestselling author Kathy Reichs returns with her sixteenth riveting novel featuring forensic anthropologist Tempe Brennan, whose examination of a young girl killed in a hit and run in North Carolina triggers an investigation into international human trafficking.

When Charlotte police discover the body of a teenage girl along a desolate stretch of two-lane highway, Temperance Brennan fears the worst. The girl’s body shows signs of foul play. Inside her purse police find the ID card of a prominent local businessman, John-Henry Story, who died in a horrific flea market fire months earlier. Was the girl an illegal immigrant turning tricks? Was she murdered?

The medical examiner has also asked Tempe to examine a bundle of Peruvian dog mummies confiscated by U.S. Customs. A Desert Storm veteran named Dominick Rockett stands accused of smuggling the objects into the country. Could there be some connection between the trafficking of antiquitiesand the trafficking of humans?

As the case deepens, Tempe must also grapple with personal turmoil. Her daughter Katy, grieving the death of her boyfriend in Afghanistan, impulsively enlists in the Army. As pressure mounts from all corners, Tempe soon finds herself at the center of a conspiracy that extends all the way from South America, to Afghanistan, and right to the center of Charlotte. “A genius at building suspense” (Daily News, New York), Kathy Reichs is at her brilliant best in this thrilling novel.

From Publishers Weekly

Jun 17, 2013 – Bestseller Reichs draws on her experiences touring with the USO in Afghanistan for her captivating 16th novel featuring forensic anthropologist Temperance Brennan (after 2012 s Bones Are Forever). At home in Charlotte, N.C., the bone expert concludes that the death of an unidentified girl, 14 or 15 years old, was caused by foul play rather than a hit-and-run, as was previously suspected. The outraged Brennan urges homicide detective Erskine Skinny Slidell to investigate, knowing Slidell believes the girl to have been an undocumented immigrant, as well as possibly being a junkie and prostitute. Later in Afghanistan, Brennan oversees the exhumation of two unarmed Afghan villagers killed by a U.S. Marine to determine whether the victims were shot in the back or head-on. The two cases and a third involving mummified dogs from Peru give Reichs ample opportunity to provide detailed descriptions of forensic examinations, but it s Brennan s passionate and personal involvement that provides the excitement in this masterful tale. 6-city author tour.

Customer Reviews

Interesting twists.

Seemingly disconnected tragedies come together in unexpected ways. As with all her books, this one is a page turner. Once I started reading, I did not want to stop.
I enjoy the complexity of her books. There are always new things to consider with each book.

Disappointing read

I am a fan and have read most of the books in the "Bones" series. However, I found this book lacking and over-priced. Disjointed plot, not engaging. Storyline comes together at the end but in a unconvincing way. Characters remain flat. Perhaps we have reached the end of the runway?

Bones of the Lost

I always enjoy the character " Tempe" and her adventures.
I found this book lacked suspense . I was disappointed. The story line was disjointed. It did not fall into place. Looking forward to Kathy's next book, hope it is better than this one.
