Lots of twists and suspense. I was glad to see Brennan relying more on police and those she trusted for help rather than taking off on her own and getting into perilous situations (although those still did happen). I enjoy all of the research, science, and history that goes into each book of Reichs'. It makes for a more intellectual read beyond your typical mystery. ( )

Excellent again from Kathy Reichs. Her books are nothing like the TV show, Bones, but they are certainly better than the usual crime/detective fare being written today. ( )

I like how scientific Kathy Reichs' books are. She writes a smart forensics mystery. I want to read them all. ( )

Haiku summary

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0671028375, Mass Market Paperback)

When forensic anthropologist Temperance Brennan joins the Disaster Mortuary Operational Response Team mobilized to investigate an airplane crash in North Carolina's Smoky Mountains, she literally stumbles on a body part that doesn't match up with the remains of any of the plane's passengers. The leg she grabs out of the jaws of a coyote feeding on the carnage scattered around the site belongs to an unidentified elderly man, and seems to have no connection with the disaster. But an abandoned hunting lodge near the crash site does, although before Tempe can figure out exactly how they're linked, she's pulled off the DMORT unit and forced to stand idly by as her professional reputation goes up in flames. When Andrew Ryan, a detective familiar to readers of Kathy Reichs's earlier books (Deja Dead, Death du Jour, Deadly Decisions), appears on the scene, another mystery begins to unfold. There seems to be no trace of two men on the plane's manifest, Ryan's partner and his seatmate, a criminal who was being escorted back to Canada via Washington, D.C., the doomed flight's final destination, to stand trial for murder.

As usual, Reichs serves up a solid helping of forensic science as the DMORT operatives do their thing, and Tempe traces the remains of a man killed 40 years ago to a series of ritual murders of senior citizens, and further to those whose influence was responsible for her firing. Reichs keeps the narrative moving along despite the somewhat ponderous technical and scientific information; her pacing is brisk and her series heroine in fine form. Tempe's romantic life gets more interesting with every new adventure. A solid thriller that will please the best-selling author's regular readers and serve as a good introduction to new ones. --Jane Adams
