New York Times bestselling author, Kathy Reichs’s Bones to Ashes is now available on audio for only $14.99!

Temperance Brennan, like her creator Kathy Reichs, is a brilliant, sexy forensic anthropologist, called on to solve the toughest cases. But for Tempe, the discovery of a young girl’s skeleton in Acadia, Canada, is more than just another assignment. Evangeline, Tempe’s childhood best friend, was also from Acadia. Named for the character in the Longfellow poem, Evangeline was the most exotic person in Tempe’s eight-year old world. When Evangeline disappeared, Tempe was warned not to search for her, that the girl was “dangerous.”

Thirty years later, flooded with memories, Tempe cannot help wondering if this skeleton could be the friend she lost so many years ago. Meanwhile, Tempe’s beau, Ryan, investigates a series of cold cases. Two girls dead. Three missing. Could the New Brunswick skeleton be part of the pattern? As Tempe draws on the latest advances in forensic anthropology to penetrate the past, Ryan hunts down a serial predator.

Bones to Ashes is a gripping, sophisticated thriller starring the protagonist who is “the lab lady most likely to dethrone Patricia Cornwell’s Kay Scarpetta” (USA TODAY). Download and start listening now!


Quotes & Awards

  • “With her usual blend of cutting-edge forensic science, nail-biting suspense and characters that pop off the page, Reichs, who’s vice president of the American Academy of Forensic Scientists and the producer of Fox’s Bones , has produced another winner in one of the genre’s most satisfying series.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “With crisp prose, well-drawn characters, unflagging attention to detail, and a resonant emotional angle, Reichs’ tenth Temperance Brennan mystery featuring the forensic anthropologist finds the forensic anthropologist in top form…Reichs deftly provides enough background to make this a successful stand-alone, at the same time advancing relationships between characters for her increasing legion of fans, who won’t want to miss this one.” 


  • “The French-Canadian setting with its bilingual characters provides narrator Linda Emond with challenges well met. She glides easily from impersonating Tempe's interfering Southern sister to a conversation with a mentally handicapped child to flirty Tempe-Ryan banter. At the same time, she keeps control of multiple plot lines.” 


  • “Reichs keeps her superb suspense piece on track, leaving the reader totally wrung out by the time the ultimate villains are tracked down and confronted. Essential for all collections.” 

    Library Journal

  • “Tempe is both deeper and funnier than she’s ever been, making this her best outing to date.”
