#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… Download and start listening now!


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

  • “Narrator Linda Emond proves to be a flexible narrator who is able to make the occasional flood of scientific jargon sound compelling. But the complicated plot requires the listener’s full attention. Emond is equally adept at bringing to life the car chases, shootings, and other exciting action that takes place outside the lab.” 


  • 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.” 


  • A New York Times Bestseller

    " First book I have read by Ms. Reichs thought I am a longtime fan of her TV show. This was a great read! Smart. Quick. Good social justice elements. Looking forward to going back and reading her first! "

    " The usual Tempe adventure. I sort of missed the fun after this book, though I am still interested in forensic facts that she put on the details. Guess Tempe & Ryan are getting serious now, huh? "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Pat | 2/1/2014

    " I enjoyed this book--a keeper. Believable characters doing difficult and technical jobs, with real families. OK not great literature but readable and enjoyable. I hate mystery writers where the detectives of whatever persuasion become the target but some danger is a necessary element. Any resemblance other than profession to the television character Bones ? None that I could see. But I am a fan of both Temperance Brennan's. "
