I am a Kathy Reichs fan vrs. a Pat Cornwell. Reichs stories have a more plausible plot and an easier read. I am grossed out by Cornwall every so often. This book was a fast satisfying read. ( )

This review was written for LibraryThing Early Reviewers.
As a fan of the television show Bones, I've always wanted to read one of the Bones books. However, it took nearly 40-50 pages of my reading (not comprehending, just looking at words and arguing with my brain) to realize that the book isn't the show. I kept wondering where Booth and Angela was. It also confused me about Katy and Tempe being a divorcee. Then, I remembered that the books weren't about Bones, the TV, but about Tempe taking a stab at a writing career. Unfortunately it had already ruined my thinking progress. Maybe I should have started reading from book one, instead of this one further into the character. Maybe then, it would have made more sense to me. ( )

Similar plot line set up as the last 4 books, which is disheartening as one already sees the "evil doers" by the first third of the book.

A soft 3 stars. This latest Temperance Brennan novel has all the ingredients to make something good but somehow the ingredients don't gel together. The three plot lines : A (the bad guy at work), B (the grannies serial killer) and C (Temperance's relationship with Ryan) mix like water and oil not vinegar and oil.

Reichs still amaze me with her sense of the places her characters are in. I can totally buy and feel Temperance's visit to Chicago and know that it's accurate, get a feel of the place. Why? Because I live in the other place Temperance works and Reichs nails Montreal, the Laurentians, Oka. Tiny, little thing Laval University is not in Laval but Québec City but really I'm nitpicking.

So, good ingredients, bad mix because it's not a sign of a good Brennan novel when the reader less than half way through knows who the bad guys are and starts yelling at Tempy to get a clue. ( )

With her 12th Bones book, Kathy Reichs decided to mix it up a little bit. Instead of saving Tempe's inevitable abduction for the very end, she opens the book with it and then takes us back to the beginning of the case so we could see how Tempe ended up in peril.

Nice try, Reichs, but the real way to mix it up would be to stop having your heroine get kidnapped at all. Its ridiculousness is right up there with how many times Chloe and Lois have each been knocked out on Smallville. I'd make a drinking game out of it, except I don't want people dying of alcohol poisoning.

And that really sums up my feelings about this series at this point. It takes a really skilled writer to keep things fresh after a dozen books. Jim Butcher has that skill (Jim Butcher has mad skills). Kathy Reichs, not so much. Sometimes she spins a really intriguing mystery, and sometimes she just spins. It's been a few books since I felt really invested in the homicide Tempe and Detective Ryan investigated. I'm hoping it's just a matter of personal taste rather than Reichs burning out. ( )

Reichs isn’t above a bit of melodrama, and her heroine is metaphorically tied to the tracks at one awkward juncture — until the forensic procedures take center stage, as they always do in this cleverly plotted and expertly maintained series.
