Kathy Reichs, #1 New York Times bestselling author and producer of the Fox hit series Bones, is at her brilliant best in a riveting novel featuring forensic anthropologist Tempe Brennan—a story of infanticide, murder, and corruption set in the high-stakes, high-danger world of diamond mining.

Temperance Brennan has been asked to examine the corpses of three dead babies in Montreal. It’s a difficult assignment, complicated further by the fact that her long-time flame Detective Ryan is investigating the infants’ mother, a former (and possibly current) prostitute. When the woman flees to Edmonton, the investigation is joined by Royal Canadian Mounted Police sergeant with whom Tempe had an ill-advised fling over a decade earlier. The dissonant team heads to remotest Yellowknife—mining country—to pursue an ever more sinister trail.
     With the Fox series Bones in its seventh season and her popularity at its broadest ever, Kathy Reichs reaches new heights in storytelling and suspense-building. Bones Are Forever shimmers with sexual tension, crackling dialogue, and the thrilling twists Reichs delivers so well. Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sundra | 1/29/2014

    " Kathy Reichs--always good to me. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Janey | 1/12/2014

    " As with all of the Temperance Brennan books, I enjoyed it. While they all are very formulaic, it doesn't seem to bother me as I just cannot put them down. I can't say that this one stood out more than any of the other books, nor was it my favorite of the series, but all in all, a very enjoyable read. And, as always, the banter between Brennan and Ryan kept me amused through the entire novel. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 LinseyM | 1/6/2014

    " Fantastic plot twists. Great mystery. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nick Ertz | 12/14/2013

    " This is another fine outing by Tempe. This time we get to visit western Canada. Who knew about the diamonds out there? As always, this is a good engaging read. Not alot of additional character formation among the cast - but a fun read anyway. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Terri Giffin | 11/27/2013

    " Cool plot twist to get them up north and into the Canadian diamond mining drama. I had some deja vu moments from the descriptions of Yellowknife, which I visited in 1990 working for Environment Canada. Great addition to the Tempe Brennan saga. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Korry Thorpe | 11/20/2013

    " I love her books. This one was a good as all the others. I enjoy trying to spot the twists before she announces them but I rarely manage it. I love the fact that the science involved in the cases is real. I really enjoyed this book and can't wait until the next one comes out. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Pat | 11/19/2013

    " I always enjoy Kathy Reichs books, just wish they were longer! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kellie | 8/11/2013

    " Kathy Reichs should read Patricia Cornwell to give herself a heads up on how too much distress added to recurrent characters can spoil an entire series. And she needs to learn how to inform her reader without boring them to death. "

    " Not one of my favorites.. "

    " Love the book! But I had problema with this book writing, slangs that I'm not familiar. (English is not my native language). "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Angela | 5/16/2013

    " Boys did she ever do her research on this one, everything she talked about I pretty well knew from where I work, it was an excellent book and I highly recommend it "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tara Clegg | 4/22/2013

    " Love this series, but it's driving me insane that Tempe and Ryan aren't back together yet! Way to keep the hope alive and not do anything about it :( "

    " I must be getting tired of forensic mysteries because this one just didn't do much for me. I loved the earlier books in the series, but how many ways can a person die before the stories all begin to sound the same? "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 BJ | 2/27/2013

    " As always an interesting,suspenseful, informative read. This one has diamond mines, gold mines, drug dealers, pimps, the Canadian far north, along with the usual dead bodies and forensics. "
