On a bitterly cold march night in Montreal, forensic anthropologiest Dr Temperance Brennan is exhuming the remains of a nun proposed for sainthood in the grounds of an old church. Just hours later, Tempe is called to the scene of an horrific arson. A young family has perished, and there seems to be no witness, no motive, no explanation. From the charred remains of the inferno, to a trail of sinister cult activity and a terrifying showdown during an ice storm, Tempe faces a nerve-shattering test of both her forensic expertise and her instinct for survival.Read Less

I tend to read only non-fiction. However, I found out that Kathy Reichs is a forensic anthropologist who created the character of Temperance Brennan in the series Bones. Since I like the character of Temperance Brennan in the series, I was curious about the books on which it was based. I am really enjoying the books!

Different than Bones
This Temperance is very different than the TV character....what amazed me was that I enjoy them both...I had two or three other Tempe novels in this order and I will definately be reading more and will still be watching the show.

A Thriller, and Real People Too
I anxiously wanted to read this book after so enjoying Kathy Reichs' debut novel "Deja Dead". I'm not disappointed!! Interesting crime situations, yet I also thoroughly enjoyed Tempe Brennan's oh-so-real frustration's of her job, whether it's dealing with a crime scene in the bitter cold (and does she ever HATE the cold!), or contradictions of the findings she makes. This is a winning book for mystery/ detective fans, and for people who just like well-written characters too.
