Temperance Brennan, forensic anthropologist for both North Carolina and Quebec, has come from Charlotte to Montreal during the bleak days of December to testify as an expert witness at a murder trial. She should be going over her notes, but instead she’s digging in the basement of a pizza parlor. Not fun. Freezing cold. Crawling rats. And now, the skeletonized remains of three young women. How did they get there? When did they die?

Homicide detective Luc Claudel believes the bones are historic. Not his case, not his concern. But when Tempe examines the bones in her lab, she establishes approximate age with Carbon 14. Further study of tooth enamel tells her where the women were born. If she’s right, Claudel has three recent murders on his hands. Definitely his case.

Detective Andrew Ryan is acting mysteriously. What are those private phone calls he takes in the other room, and why does he suddenly disappear just when Tempe is beginning to hope he might be a permanent part of her life? Looks like more lonely nights for Tempe and Birdie, her cat.

As Tempe searches for answers in both her personal and professional lives, she finds herself drawn deep into a web of evil from which there may be no escape. Women have disappeared, never to return. Tempe may be next.

Quotes & Awards

  • “What’s best about Reichs, and often unappreciated in reviews, is not the informative detail that she brings to Tempe’s forensic sleuthing, though that’s certainly engrossing. It’s the same well-observed detail and incisive analysis applied to other aspects of the story.”  

    Publishers Weekly

  • “A fast-paced and suspenseful mystery in a deservedly popular series.”


  • A USA Today Bestseller
  • A New York Times Bestseller

    " Yet another book that has a cracking pace to build up to the climax of the story that just keeps on going. I really enjoy reading this series, but find it more and more grating that Tempe goes ahead and puts herself into dangerous situations time and time again without consulting the people whose job it is to actually do these things!! Anyway, it's still four stars as I did enjoy it, staying up to past midnight at least two nights running turning the pages. "

    " I listened to the abridged audiobook version of this title (hope that counts as "reading" it....). The plot was good, and I didn't feel like I was missing any important details. If anything, I was glad to not have to listen to the small details that I already know, since this is a series with repeat characters and relationships that I am already familiar with and no longer need the history of. "

    " Another page turner for Tempe! 3 skeletons in the basement of the pizza parlor in Montreal. New relationship with Ryan. Just gets Charlie the cockatiel to share with Ryan. His daughter Lily is introduced at the end of the book. I like the series by Kathy Reichs! "
