Synopsis

Bones are Forever by Kathy Reichs

A newborn baby is found wedged in a vanity cabinet in a rundown apartment near Montreal. Dr Temperance Brennan, forensic anthropologist to the province of Quebec, is brought in to investigate. While there, she discovers the mummified remains of two more babies within the same room. Shocked and distressed, Tempe must use all her skills and inner strength to focus on the facts. But when the autopsies reveal that the children died of unnatural causes, the hunt for the mother - a young woman with a seedy past and at least three aliases - is on. The trail leads Tempe to Yellowknife, a cold, desolate diamond-mining town on the edge of the Arctic Circle, where her quest for the truth only throws up more questions, more secrets, and more dead bodies. Taking risks and working alone, Tempe refuses to give up until she has discovered why the babies died. But in such a hostile environment, can she avoid being the next victim?

-life expertise gives her novels an authenticity that most other crime novelists would kill for -- Michelle Davies Daily Express Once again Reichs spins a genuinely gripping tale in an interesting and different environment that's peppered with authentic forensic science and peopled with well drawn, rounded characters. -- Myles McWeeney Irish Independent A truly impressive writer -- Barry Forshaw We love this book With Kathy Reichs the reader knows they're in the hands of an expert Sunday Express This is a fast moving, deftly plotted tale which has the reader on the edge of their seat. Not only is Reichs a top forensic anthropologist herself, but she's also a top writer. One to savour. ***** Press Association

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...

Created by Kathy Reichs, Tempe Brennan is a forensic anthropologist who shares her time between North Carolina and Montreal, and has now appeared in almost ten novels where her medical examinations of bones and other sinister discoveries always send her on a trail of murder, peril and grief. Her latest outing is in 206 BONES.
