Nine-year-old Emily Anne Toussaint is shot dead on a Montreal street. A North Carolina teenager disappears from her home and parts of what may be her skeleton are found hundreds of miles away. For Dr. Temperance Brennan, a forensic anthropologist in both Montreal and North Carolina, the deaths kindle deep emotions that propel her on a harrowing journey into the world of outlaw motorcycle gangs.

As a scientist, Tempe should remain dispassionate. As a caring individual, she yearns to take the killers off the streets. With her boss Pierre LaManche in the hospital, and her friend Andrew Ryan disturbingly unavailable, Tempe begins a perilous investigation into a culture where evil often wears masks.

From blood-spatter patterns and ground-penetrating radar to bone-sample analysis, Deadly Décisions triumphantly combines the authenticity of a world-class forensic professional with the narrative power of a brilliant new crime writing star in a richly nuanced thriller.

Quotes & Awards

  • “The science is as accurate as the author can make it. Kathy Reichs’ own background…ensures verisimilitude of place and procedure and creates a believable milieu. Fans of Patricia Cornwall will enjoy this solidly written suspense thriller, while those of a less scientific bent…will skip the details and concentrate on Reichs’ fluid writing. All readers will enjoy the way Tempe puts the pieces of the puzzle, as well as the bodies, together.”

    Amazon.com, editorial review

  • “Reichs brings to her grisly novels a scientific detail and authenticity that Cornwell rarely matches.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “Crime writer Reichs is amazing! Once again, readers will be eager to learn the grisly details of how her forensic anthropologist heroine, Dr. Tempe Brennan, teases information from the bones of mutilated, decomposed, often animal-gnawed human bodies…Reichs roots her skillful storytelling in her own experience as forensic anthropologist in both Montreal and North Carolina. Highly recommended.”

    Library Journal

  • “Abounding in grisly details, this novel is sure to please Reichs’ fans.”

    School Library Journal

  • “Fans will be hooked by those ghoulish stints in the lab, the penny-dreadful chapter endings, and the endless flow of acronyms that prove what a tough cookie Tempe is.”
