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, 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 and the surprising plot twists that have made her a number one bestselling author in the United States and around the world.

    " This is a so so read, for me at least. I was interested to begin with after the skull was found in the cauldron and when Tempe finally sifted through all the dirt and all the other bits and pieces were discovered, I thought it would be a good story. However, I started loosing interest, too many bodies and trying to keep track of was originally thought to be the killer and who the killer really was. I would like to have seen a chapter or two devoted to the downfall of Lingo, after all the verbal diatribe. Also Tempe was fired due to a number of things - starting with her supposedly talking to a reporter, but that turned out not to be the case and the "reporter" was going to set the record straight with her boss. So did Tempe get her job back, put on probation, or do we have to read another book to find out. Maybe I missed it in my declining interest. "

    " A good solid Temperance Brennan book. I wanted to know more about what was happening in Tempe's personal life! I can't wait for the next one. "

    " I love BONES on TV and have liked some of Reichs' mysteries with Brennan, but this one is just a tangled web--superfluous characters, research about voodoo-type rituals, shallow relationships with Ryan and Charlie--just a mess. There's NO WAY the guy "who did it" was logical. Doubt if I'll read her again. "

    " It was a fun read, but not as good as the other books in the series. Also, Americans like to live in fear--but I knew that already. "
