Unexpectedly called 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 answers: 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 eluding 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 US, 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.

I love how easy it is to read these books out of sequence! In bones never lie we join Tempe Brennan on her hunt to finally silence Anique Pomerleau. through a fast paced thrill ride Brennan and Ryan stalk their quarry, to what end? ( )

A great page turner with lots of twists and turns throughout the story to keep the reader captivated.

Tempe and Ryan find themselves in pursuit of an old nemesis, as cold cases once again become hot, and the list of murders seem to be growing from Canada to North Carolina...

This review was written for LibraryThing Early Reviewers.
I haven't read any of the other books in this series. Maybe the earlier books are better, but I thought that the writing in this one was very stiff and the police investigation conventional. I am probably not going to read any more of the series. I received a free copy of this book from the publisher. ( )

The novel is pretty standard for the series, as Temperance learns that a series of missing children in North Carolina and Vermont may be the work of a serial killer she helped uncover in Montreal several years earlier, who escaped without a trace. I would enjoy these books so much more if Tempe, who clearly has a brilliant scientific mind, would not repeatedly do stupid things like putting herself in mortal danger by trying to solve crimes by herself without informing the police or getting backup. It's like the author has crafted a protagonist who is a forensic anthropologist because that's the field she knows best (and that aspect of the books is consistently excellent), but she can't help wanting her heroine to also be the one who charges in and catches the bad guy single-handed. It just doesn't work for me, so I'm deducting a half-star from the final rating for general improbability. ( )

As an author she has her tremendous asset of technical and bureaucratic knowledge - this needless to say, carries her a very long way. Missing, however, is the sense of atmosphere...
