I like how scientific Kathy Reichs' books are. She writes a smart forensics mystery. I want to read them all. ( )
  Djupstrom | Jul 21, 2014 |
This whole series is way better than the tv show. (as most are). I think it gives people the wrong idea when they see the show. The Temperance Brennan in the books is human flawed and emotional. HSe is not cold and clinical. Her cases take place in both Canada and the US. I love Reichs use of french words. We get to see her interactions with her daughter KAtie and see a real person. ( )

Temperance Brennan hears the news on her car radio. An Air TransSouth flight has gone down in the mountains of western North Carolina, taking with it eighty-eight passengers and crew. As a forensic anthropologist and a member of the regional DMORT team, Tempe rushes to the scene to assist in body recovery and identification.
Tempe has seen death many times, working with the medical examiners in North Carolina and Montreal, but never has tragedy struck with such devastation. She finds a field of carnage: torsos in trees, limbs strewn among bursting suitcases and smoldering debris. Many of the dead are members of a university soccer team. Is Tempe's daughter, Katy, among them? (No)
Even more puzzling for Tempe is a disembodied foot found near the debris field. Tempe's microscopic analysis suggests it could not have belonged to any passenger. Whose foot is it, and where is the rest of the body? And what about the disturbing evidence Tempe discovers in the soil outside a remote mountain enclave? What secrets lie hidden there? ( )

Apart from a twist that smacked of dumb coincidence and was really, really unworthy of Reichs, this was a great read. Two mysteries, layered on top of one another, with lots of local color and sordid ickiness. Fantastic! ( )
  ewillse | Mar 23, 2014 |
As always, I enjoyed the details that Reichs includes about the process of examining bodies and handling evidence. I found some parts of the book to be quite creepy (which was nice since it is a mystery).

I was glad that a library and an archive were included in the book! ( )

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
