A drawn out airline crash investigation ( )

I have been fascinated by forensic pathology since I was in about 7th grade and read a biography of a famous French pathologist (whose name I cannot recall now). So I really want to like this series, and, basically, I do.

Dr Temperance Brennan, PhD (Tempe) is a forensic anthropologist tasked with examining remains … sometimes ancient, sometimes crime-related, sometimes just an old animal bone found by an excited hunter. This book opens with a plane crash in the mountains of Eastern Tennessee or Western North Carolina. She happens to be in the neighborhood, so she’s asked to drop everything else and go to the site to begin recovery and identification of remains. As will happen with a plane crash, the wreckage is wide-spread and the woods are full of scavengers – bear, coyote, raccoons, fox, hawks, vultures, etc. When she spots a coyote with a foot in his mouth she manages to get it away from him and enter it in the log as part of the remains. The only problem is that it doesn’t seem to belong to any of the passengers or crew. So whose foot is it?

Of course there are evil-doers in high places that try to thwart the investigation, and Tempe’s reputation and career are quickly on the line. Her emotions frequently are just on the verge of being out of control (her heart rate increases, her adrenaline is pumping, “hot tears line the inside of her eyelids”). But she is not without allies … and rescuers. And this is the source of my dissatisfaction. When she is clearly in danger she persists in going about without any protection, and behaving in a manner that gets her further into trouble. To her credit, she is resourceful and doesn’t rely entirely on “the big strong guy” to save her, so I didn’t really deduct much in my rating.

Borowitz does an okay job of performing this audio book. Her delivery is somewhat flat for much of it … I suppose she is trying to make Tempe sound in control, calm and deliberate. By the 3rd disc I had gotten used to it … or perhaps as the story picked up steam, she put more emotion into her performance. ( )

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. ( )

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
