Lovereading view...

Winner of the Specsavers Bestseller Dagger 2012.

Illuminated by lightning, a lifeless human hand seems to reach from a barrel of asphalt beside the Charlotte racetrack. Even for forensic anthropologist Dr Tempe Brennan, never easily shocked, it is a disturbing sight. And now she is under pressure to find answers before thousands arrive for the year's big race.

If you like Kathy Reichs you might also like to read books by James Patterson, Tess Gerritsen and Patricia Cornwell.

Synopsis

Flash and Bones by Kathy Reichs

Before Dr Tempe Brennan can carry out a proper examination of a body discovered near a racetrack, the FBI mysteriously confiscate and destroy it. It's a dead end. Until Wayne Gamble, a young engineer, alerts Tempe to the disappearance of his sister and her boyfriend from Charlotte twelve years earlier, and she determines to uncover what really happened to them. When, a few days later, Gamble's body is found crushed under the wheels of a race car, Tempe realises the situation is truly sinister. And that even her own life could be in terrible danger...

Fellow novelist KERRY REICHS on KATHY REICHS

When speaking of writers that have most influenced me, it’s safe to begin at the beginning. My mother Kathy Reichs has written eleven London Times best selling books and fostered the television drama Bones. I am incredibly proud of her talents, and her pride in mine has sweetened my success. My defection from Lawyer Camp (my father and brother are lawyers) to Writer Camp was heralded with joyous open arms by my mother, and the best part is enjoying it together. We don’t agree on everything, and we write about vastly different subject materials. But some day I may just cave in to her pestering that I “put a dead body” in one of my books so we can write something together! If you haven’t already, try her latest book, Devil Bones.

Maxim Jakubowski's view on TEMPERANCE BRENNAN...
