As a forensic anthropologist for the state, she serves on the region's disaster response team. The task that confronts her is a sad and sickening one. Putting normal life on hold, she and her colleagues must painstakingly identify the victims. A chance discovery concerns her: a severed foot, well away from the main crash site. A deserted house close by is buried so deep in the woods that locals claim to know nothing of its existence. And her examination of the foot throws up more questions than it answers. Before she can make any progress, an anonymous accusation is levelled against her. Tempe must fight to save her professional standing. But she fears that, air tragedy aside, another corpse lies somewhere in the woods. Pitting herself against a conspiracy of silence, Tempe is determined to bring justice for her mystery victim...Read Less
This is a super fun read. I can always expect Kathy Reichs to deliver a great page-turner that's extremely hard to put down.

Tempe is Interesting in North Carolina Too!
I'm becoming a real fan of Kathy Reichs, and wondered if her stories were more set in her North Carolina home, would it be as interesting. The answer is a resounding yes! In Montreal her character of Dr. Tempe Brennan has the cold of the winters, the Franchophile police, and the possible love interest. Here she has the bugs, critters, humidity and heat. Oh yes, the love interest is here too, although it's a tragic situation that has him show up. Tempe shows how she handle herself south of the Canadian border, and under unique (and fortunately) rare circumstances covering an airliner crash. The crash leads to a possible bizarre crime scene, and that's when things get even more interesting! Read it, you won't be disappointed!
