#1 New York Times bestselling author Kathy Reichs, a producer of the Fox television hit Bones, returns with a riveting new novel featuring America’s favorite forensic anthropologist, Tempe Brennan.

The New York Times Book Review hailed the Tempe Brennan novels as a “cleverly plotted and expertly maintained series.” Spider Bones opens as Temperance Brennan is called to the scene of a drowning in Hemmingford, Quebec. The victim appears to have died while in the midst of a bizarre sexual practice. The body is identified as a man originally declared dead in 1968—the victim of a Huey crash in Vietnam. Tempe exhumes the soldier’s corpse from his grave in North Carolina and flies with the remains to Hawaii for a reanalysis of the bones. But it’s not long before another set of remains are found with the first victim’s dog tags tangled amongst them. There are now two unidentified bodies—both with strange connections. Meanwhile, the Honolulu medical examiner asks Tempe for help with remains found offshore—from yet another victim. Is it the victim of a shark attack? Or something much more sinister…

Quotes & Awards

  • “Reichs, who once again uses her own scientific knowledge to enhance a complex plot and continually developing characters, delivers a whopper of a final twist.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “Fans of the television series Bones, based on Reich's life and career, will note plenty of differences between the show and the novels, but they will find that Brennan on the page still offers much to enjoy. Fans of the books, of course, will soon be stampeding to the library to secure their copies.”


  • “Linda Emond proves to be a flexible narrator who is able to make the occasional flood of scientific jargon sound compelling…Emond is equally adept at bringing to life the car chases, shootings, and other exciting action that takes place outside the lab.”

    " A typical Kathy Reichs mystery, but somehow it feels more contrived than some of her previous works. "

    " This book was a fun read. I really like a murder mystery and this one didn't disappoint. There was some foul language...but there wasn't any sex. Great story. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 by Sarah | 5/8/2011

    " The TV show Bones is based on the books by Kathy Reichs. I have never seen the show, but I really enjoy her books about forensic anthropologist Temperance Brennon. All of these mysteries are intelligent, well written and entertaining. This is not a series that you must start at the beginning.
