Review of the Month 

Temperance Brennan is Back……….

Kathy Reichs, New York Times bestselling author, returns with her twentieth novel featuring forensic anthropologist Temperance Brennan. In The Bone Code a container with two decayed bodies inside wrapped in plastic secured by electrical wire washes ashore after a recent storm. Tempe, who specializes in analyzing “remains unfit for a pathologist’s scalpel: the decomposed, dismembered, burned, mummified, mutilated, and skeletal,” is asked to investigate. The details rattle Brennan, as they match those of a 15-year-old unsolved case involving two victims that Brennan worked on with Andrew Ryan, a former Quebec homicide detective turned PI.   Tempe eventually discovers that not only are the victims in both grisly murder cases related, but that the murders and the disease outbreak also have a common cause.
