Temperance Brennan hears the news on her car radio. An Air TransSouth flight has gone down in the mountains of western North Carolina, taking with it eighty-eight passengers and crew.
An a forensic anthropologist and a member of the regional DMORT team, Tempe rushes to the scene to assist in body recovery and identification. She finds a field of carnage: torsos in trees, limbs strewn among bursting suitcases and smoldering debris. Many of the dead are members of a university soccer team. Is Tempe's daughter, Katy, among them?
Frantic with worry, Tempe joins colleagues from the FBI, the NTSB, and other agencies to search for explanations. Was the plane brought down by a bomb or simple mechanical failure? And what about the prisoner on the plane who was being extradited to Canada? Did someone want him silenced forever? And why are certain people eager to stop Tempe's investigation? Is she learning too much? Coming too close?
With help from Montreal detective Andrew Ryan -- and from a very special dog named Boyd -- Tempe uncovers a shocking, multilayered tale of deceit and depravity.
Written with the riveting authenticity that only world-class forensic anthropologist Kathy Reichs can provide, Fatal Voyage pairs witty, elegant prose with pulse-pounding storytelling in a tour de force worthy of crime writing's new superstar. Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Malayna | 2/15/2014

    " Good story, but definitely don't choose it as your "I'm going to be on a plane for a couple hours and need a book" book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tammie | 2/15/2014

    " Yeah!! Tempe is in South Carolina. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jonelle | 2/12/2014

    " Same good suspense and a bit of gore--but less of the 'can't leave my room for fear' in this one. Maybe not the best book to read while contemplating a plane ride...or a trip to back-country Appalachians... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Karen | 2/10/2014

    " I enjoyed this book the best so far I think! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Deborah Hamilton | 1/30/2014

    " This is the fourth book in the Temperance Brennan series and like the 3 before, an edge of your seat read. After every chapter I would say just one more chapter and then be sucked in for many more! While assisting in the identification of passengers on a recent plane crash, Brennan stumbles upon her worst nightmare. Brennan finds herself fighting to preserve her image as local politicians are working just as hard to sabotage her. A great read that ends leaving the reader ready for book 5! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Keilani Ludlow | 1/25/2014

    " If you like the Bones tv series, this is nothing like it. Ok, so the tv series is based off of this author's books, but Temperance Brennen is nothing in the book like she is on the show. However that being said, while I'm a huge fan of the show, I also like the books. Basically, you have the anthropologist figuring out who the body is and who dun it, and throw in a little of her personal life and drama. They are engaging and enjoyable. Warning - she has no issue with swear words. This one actually has less than some, but some have quite a bit. The main character doesn't use a lot, and uses the milder ones generally, but bad guys and cops don't mind turning the air blue on occasion. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tracy Walters | 1/25/2014

    " This was a very good book with lots of goo and gore. If you are into that kind of stuff than this is a book for you! I enjoyed the story plot line and was hardpressed to put it down. I am finding myself a big fan of forensic science mysteries....although I have a hard time eating and reading them at the same time...giggle! This book was particulary gruesome so watch out for all of you with a weak stomach!!! I really like the main character Tempe Brennan and am looking forward to reading more books by Kathy Reichs....she now has a new fan in me! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jannene | 1/11/2014

    " I couldn't put this book down. I stayed up until 12:30 am hoping to finish it. I called it quits and woke up early to finish it. The book immediately sucked me in. I had to keep reading to see what was going on and why Tempe was in so much trouble. It was a very suspenseful book and I had no idea how it was going to end. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marybeth | 1/9/2014

    " kathy reichs books are always good, but I particularly liked this one. Lots of twists and turns. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cyndee | 11/14/2013

    " I believe this is the fourth in the Tempe Brennan series. It has a lot of suspense and is very graphic. In fact, it took me 2 'tries' to read it. The plot was intricate, the characters good as ever. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Manda | 11/12/2013

    " Interesting. Held my attention. Glossed over the techo-speak every now and then but otherwise good. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Franziska Borrmann | 10/8/2013

    " I really had trouble gettin into the newer books of Kathy Reichs, so I really enjoyed the old ones. I loved the beginning of the story, couldn't put it down until I had finished it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jo Ellen | 10/8/2013

    " I think I've read enough Kathy Reichs books for a while. Temperence Brennan is getting on my nerves! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sarah & Colby | 6/15/2013

    " I really could have done without the constant "dumb hillbilly" references, but other than that the book was pretty good. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lisa | 5/13/2013

    " I loved this one!! I have read the three previous books in the series and I liked this one the best. She leaves you hanging though!! I can't wait to dig into the fifth one. "

    " One of my favorites from the Tempe Brennan series. It was fast paced and really kept me entertained. This series either bores me or I love it..it changes with each book, but this was one that I loved! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Brianna | 7/22/2011

    " I enjoyed this book. It gets a little in left field sometimes but overall was good. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lili | 5/4/2011

    " This book was another brilliant read, Kathy Reichs certainly knows how to capture the reader. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rincey | 3/25/2011

    " The books are getting better! I didn't even [completely] guess the culprit this time :) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Malayna | 3/17/2011

    " Good story, but definitely don't choose it as your "I'm going to be on a plane for a couple hours and need a book" book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bobby | 2/23/2011

    " I very nearly loved this book but two things stopped me: the writing style itself and the somewhat abrupt cut-off of what I thought was the main plot of the story. As I am now used to writing style, I very much expect to enjoy many Kathy Reichs books in the future. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Katie | 2/19/2011

    " another amazing Reichs Novel. sort of creepy when you think she wrote this BEFORE 9/11 and then well, of course...america's world changed. she writes a touching afterword that brought tears to my eyes about her book and 9/11 "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Robin | 2/18/2011

    " It's been a while since I read it, but I remember loving it - as I do all of her books. "

About the Author
Author Kathy ReichsKathy Reichs is the author of more than twenty New York Times bestselling novels featuring forensic anthropologist Temperance Brennan, including her most recent The Bone Collection. Like her protagonist, Reichs is a forensic anthropologist—one of fewer than one hundred ever certified by the American Board of Forensic Anthropology. A professor in the Department of Anthropology at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte, she is a former vice president of the American Academy of Forensic Sciences and serves on the National Police Services Advisory Council in Canada. Reichs’s own life, as much as her novels, is the basis for the TV show Bones, one of the longest-running series in the history of the FOX network.
