Fiction. Mystery. Suspense. Thriller. HTML:In Kathy Reichs's tenth bestselling novel featuring forensic anthropologist Temperance Brennan, the discovery of a young girl's skeleton in Acadia, Canada might be connected to the disappearance of Tempe's childhood friend.
For Tempe Brennan, the discovery of a young girl's skeleton in Acadia, Canada, is more than just another case. Evangeline, Tempe's childhood best friend, was also from Acadia. Named for the character in the Longfellow poem, Evangeline was the most exotic person in Tempe's eight-year-old world. When Evangeline disappeared, Tempe was warned not to search for her, that the girl was "dangerous."

Thirty years later, flooded with memories, Tempe cannot help wondering if this skeleton could be the friend she had lost so many years ago. And what is the meaning of the strange skeletal lesions found on the bones of the young girl?

Meanwhile, Tempe's beau, Ryan, investigates a series of cold cases. Two girls dead. Three missing. Could the New Brunswick skeleton be part of the pattern? As Tempe draws on the latest advances in forensic anthropology to penetrate the past, Ryan hunts down a serial predator.

(2007)Not the best of hers I've read as it was a little hard to keep all of the plot lines straight until they came together in the end (which is where I knew it would). With crisp prose, well-drawn characters, unflagging attention to detail, and a resonant emotional angle, Reichs' tenth Temperance Brennan mystery (after Break No Bones, 2006) featuring the forensic anthropologist finds the forensic anthropologist in top form. This time it's personal, when the skeleton of a young girl evokes memories of a deep, decades-old friendship with10-year-old Evangeline Landry, who sustained 8-year-old Tempe at a time of great personal loss only to disappear several years later. As Tempe works to identify the skeletal remains and cause of death, Detective Andrew Ryan seeks her help with several cases involving missing girls and unidentified bodies, raising the possibility of a serial killer. With her workload overwhelming, Tempe's life starts falling apart: her visiting sister's impulsiveness puts both of them at risk; her long-estranged husband, Pete, announces unsettling plans; and Ryan•the man in her life√ā¬•makes a difficult personal decision. Reichs deftly provides enough background to make this a successful stand-alone, at the same time advancing relationships between characters for her increasing legion of fans, who won't want to miss this one.

It is not that simple. Power of the series. Don't know what, don't know why. I read and read this. It's all beyond faults and pickings now. It's like a train ride. I can't jump off in the woods and can't get off on stations. I want to know what will happen next. In the series.

Sometimes reading about death is easier than reading about life. ( )

Tempe is back in Montreal and working on a number of cases. When the skeleton of a young woman is found in Acadia, Tempe wonders if it isn't the skeleton of her friend Evangeline who disappeared from North Carolina when Tempe was twelve. She'd tried to track her down many times over the years with no success.

Meanwhile, her off-and-on again boyfriend Ryan is investigating a series of cold cases; young girls disappearing over a number of years. It is possible that the skeleton Tempe is working on is one of his missing girls.

The investigation leads to Acadia and Toronto and areas in between. The suspects include a shady Acadian businessman and an equally shady photographer. The team is led into the world of porn films as they pursue their leads.

Tempe's sister Harry is visiting and gets involved with Tempe in the search for their childhood friends.

The story was fast-paced and filled with interesting medical information. I enjoyed the characters and found the plot intriguing. ( )
