When a recent skeleton among ancient bones raises questions—and danger—forensic anthropologist Temperance Brennan is the only one who can solve the case in this “triumphant second appearance” (Publishers Weekly) from #1 New York Times bestselling author Kathy Reichs.

Tempe Brennan is stuck teaching an archaeology field school for students at UNCC in Charleston, South Carolina.

When she stumbles upon a recent skeleton among the ancient bones, she starts asking questions. She’s the expert they might have called in, but lucky for the police she’s already there. The skeleton leads her to a free street clinic where patients have begun to go missing, and some have wound up dead. What is going on and who is to blame? The charismatic televangelist who oversees the clinic? The shady doctor who practices there? Or is it the clinic staff?

Ryan is in Montreal, though he may come down for a visit. If he does, Tempe will have to juggle him and Detective Galiano, an old flame, who is in town investigating the disappearance of a wealthy young woman. This is a phenomenally high stakes business where one dead body can save a couple of lives, maybe more. Along with the corpses, Tempe investigates the sick moral logic of the mastermind behind the operation.

Kathy Reichs has returned Tempe to America and put her in the middle of a sinister trafficking ring that’s local and global. The suspense is intense, and the world is riveting. Kathy Reichs’s books are expert and smart with a taut energy, and this is her best plot and writing yet. Download and start listening now!

Quotes & Awards

  • “Atmospheric, suspensefully paced…a delectable tale of corpus delictibone-chilling prime crime.”

    People

  • “Bonnie Hurren obviously enjoys performing this international thriller. Her greatest talent lies in her expertise with dialects. Subtle North Carolina sweetness gives way to a Tennessee drawl in an instant, followed by an amazing ability to portray Canadian French. She even captures Nova Scotia's regionalisms to perfection.”

    AudioFile

  • “An enjoyable read for Cornwell fans who want something new.”

    Library Journal

  • “Reichs’ striking debut, though one with more mystification than mystery. Reichs plots ambitiously, knows her way around a morgue, isn’t afraid to pile on the Grand Guignol, and spins a tale that reads, well, like a house afire.”
