Description
NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLERNo one speaks the language of suspense more brilliantly than Kathy Reichs, author of the acclaimed Temperance Brennan series. In Speaking in Bones, the forensic anthropologist finds herself drawn into a world of dark secrets and dangerous beliefs, where good and evil blur.   Professionally, Temperance Brennan knows exactly what to do—test, analyze, identify. Her personal life is another story. She’s at a loss, wondering how to answer police detective Andrew Ryan’s marriage proposal. But the matter of matrimony takes a backseat when murder rears its head.   Hazel “Lucky” Strike—a strident amateur detective who mines the Internet for cold cases—comes to Brennan with a tape recording of an unknown girl being held prisoner and terrorized. Strike is convinced the voice is that of eighteen-year-old Cora Teague, who went missing more than three years earlier. Strike is also certain that the teenager’s remains are gathering dust in Temperance Brennan’s lab.   Brennan has doubts about working with a self-styled websleuth. But when the evidence seems to add up, Brennan’s next stop is the treacherous backwoods where the chilling recording (and maybe Cora Teague’s bones) were discovered. Her forensic field trip only turns up more disturbing questions—along with gruesome proof of more untimely deaths.   While local legends of eerie nocturnal phenomena and sinister satanic cults abound, it’s a zealous and secretive religious sect that has Brennan spooked and struggling to separate the saints from the sinners. But there’s nothing, including fire and brimstone, that can distract her from digging up the truth and taking down a killer—even as Brennan finds herself in a place where angels fear to tread, devils demand their due, and she may be damned no matter what.Praise for Speaking in Bones  Speaking in Bones keeps the suspense high.”—Associated Press   “Temperance’s forensic sleuthing uncovers many secrets, along with a blockbuster psychological surprise.”The Huffington Post

      • bioText: Kathy Reichs is the author of nineteen New York Times bestselling novels and the co-author, with her son, Brendan Reichs, of six novels for young adults. Like the protagonist of her Temperance Brennan series, Reichs is a forensic anthropologist—one of fewer than one hundred ever certified by the American Board of Forensic Anthropology. A professor in the Department of Anthropology at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte, she is a former vice president of the American Academy of Forensic Sciences. Reichs's own life, as much as her novels, is the basis for the TV show Bones, one of the longest-running series in the history of the Fox network.

        June 1, 2015
        Forensic anthropologist Temperance Brennan doesn’t think very highly of Hazel Strike and her fellow “websleuths,” amateurs who gather online to try and solve crimes and locate missing persons, in bestseller Reichs’s solid 18th novel featuring Brennan (after 2014’s Bones Never Lie). Hazel is convinced that bones in Brennan’s Mecklenburg County, N.C., lab belong to 18-year-old Cora Teague, who disappeared more than three years earlier. Trouble is, no one officially reported Cora missing. Cora’s parents, who belong to a fringe Pentecostal church, claim Cora left town with a boy. Despite little evidence to support Hazel’s theory, Brennan investigates Cora’s family, as well as the boy Cora supposedly left town with, and uncovers some shocking secrets. With Brennan’s beau, Quebec homicide detective Andrew Ryan, in Canada, local deputy Zeb Ramsey lends a hand in the increasingly bizarre—and dangerous—investigation. Brennan’s on-again/off-again relationship with Ryan brings some welcome romantic interest to this multilayered series. Agent: Jennifer Rudolph Walsh, William Morris Endeavor.
