In a house under renovation, a plumber uncovers a cellar no one knew about, and makes a rather grisly discovery -- a decapitated chicken, animal bones, and cauldrons containing beads, feathers, and other relics of religious ceremonies. In the center of the shrine is the skull of a teenage girl. Meanwhile, on a nearby lakeshore, the headless body of a teenage boy is found by a man walking his dog.

Led by a preacher turned politician, citizen vigilantes blame devil worshippers and Wiccans and begin a witch hunt, intent on seeking revenge. Forensic anthropologist Temperance Brennan -- "five-five, feisty, and forty-plus" -- is called in to investigate, and a complex and gripping tale unfolds in this deadly mix of voodoo, Santería, and devil worship.

With a popular series on Fox -- now in its third season and in full syndication -- Kathy Reichs has established herself as the dominant talent in forensic mystery writing. Devil Bones, her eleventh taut, always surprising, scientifically fascinating mystery features Reichs's signature blend of forensic descriptions that "chill to the bone" (Entertainment Weekly) and the surprising plot twists that have made her a number one bestselling author in the United States and around the world.

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Robin Klein | 2/14/2014

    " An excellent story that keeps you reading all night. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Julie | 2/10/2014

    " A Temperance Brennan novel, starting with a contractor who discovers a hidden cellar in a house he is remodeling, filled with voodoo items and a human skull. A few days later a body of a boy is found by a river, also with satanic overtones, and another murder follows. Linking the murders and sorting through suspects fills the rest of the book. I did not like it as well as most of her other books. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Kiira Bayman | 2/5/2014

    " Very similar to an episode of Bones, but I felt like it dragged on longer than necesssary. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Tony Rothwell | 2/4/2014

    " A darker Kathy Reichs but not as dark as Patricia Cornwell. Tempe (our hero) is going through a bad time in her life but I really felt for her. It's that good. "
