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.

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.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Reichs, herself a highly accomplished forensic anthropologist, expertly directs a busy plot that moves with electrical force in the final quarter. She capitalizes on the morbid yet captivating aspects of the forensic trenchwork, yet never lets it overwhelm her story. But it is Reichs’ ongoing development of Tempe—a woman in her 50s with a mature understanding of human nature, and a self-deprecating sense of humor—that truly lifts the book above many of its peers.” 

    Publishers Weekly

  • “Harper’s signature reading style is impeccable as she re-creates harrowing experiences and energizes the scientific and forensic jargon uttered by a search-and-recovery team toiling at an airplane crash site.” 


  • A New York Times Bestseller
  • A USA Today Bestseller

    " One of the most riveting books I've read in awhile. From a horrible plane crash to morbid findings, this book definitely keeps you reading past midnight. Forensic Anthropologist Dr. Temperance Brennan is my new favorite character!! "

    " I really enjoyed this one. Seemed to be a bit different than the previous ones. Tempe still found herself and/or a loved one in danger, but it didn't take away from the story. Her love life may actually be taking a turn for the better, too, which is exciting. ;) "
