I enjoy this author's work and am sure I will continue to do so. I enjoyed this work also, but did feel it was a bit flat (for lack of a better discription) than some of her previous novels. I certainly will not go into the story here, there are plenty of other reviews that have done that as well ans Publisher's Weekly, but I did find the story interesting, if not the characters. This was a rather easy read with few wasted words. I personally like this sort of style but can well see where others may not (some like Hemingway, some do not). The author is a natural story teller and in this novel, she again proves it. Looking forward to her next release.

Since I'm currently recovering from some surgery, I decided to treat myself to a little Tempe Brennan action with Kathy Reichs latest, Break No Bones. There's a lot of stuff going on in this novel, and the surgery pain may have prevented me from enjoying it quite as much as I normally would.    Brennan is down in South Carolina teaching an archeological class complete with dig, and she discovers a body that isn't nearly as old as the surrounding area. She contacts her friend …

I picked up this book out of desperation at the local library. I have, frankly, never quite understood the fascination with Kathy Reichs and her books. The only reason I picked this one up is because I live in Montreal and its fun to read about my own city through the eyes of Americans. Unfortunately, that backfired here as this book is not based in Montreal.    The storyline is basic enough with Tempe being yet again "at the wrong place at the wrong time". What I have a huge …

About this book


The success of the Fox TV showBones, based on bestseller Reichs's series featuring forensic anthropologist Temperance Brennan (Cross Bones, etc.), bodes well for this latest installment, in which Brennan once again stumbles on a modern-day mystery inadvertently. While supervising a dig of Native American burial grounds in Charleston, S.C., Brennan finds more recent remains. Soon, her ex-husband, who's a lawyer, appears in town, pursuing leads in a missing persons case connected with a local church. Bodies start piling up at an alarming rate, and Brennan begins to suspect that the deaths are linked to each other—and her ex-husband's inquiry. Reichs's down-to-earth heroine is an appealing creation, who deftly juggles personal problems with professional challenges. Despite the somewhat obvious solution, this novel confirms the series' place in the front rank of the ever-expanding forensic thriller subgenre.(July)
