'You have an enemy, Dr Brennan. It is in your interest to learn who placed that call.'
A routine case turns sinister when Dr Temperance Brennan is accused of mishandling the autopsy of a missing heiress. Someone has made an incriminating accusation that she missed or concealed crucial evidence. Before Tempe can get to the one man with information, he turns up dead.
The heiress isn't the only elderly female to have appeared on Tempe's gurney recently. Back in Montreal, three more women have died, their bodies brutally discarded. Tempe is convinced there's a link between their deaths and that of the heiress. But what - or who - connects them?
Tempe struggles with the clues, but nothing adds up. Has she made grave errors or is some unknown foe sabotaging her? It soon becomes frighteningly clear. It's not simply Tempe's career at risk. Her life is at stake too.
Praise for Kathy Reichs
'The forensic detail is harrowing, the pace relentless and the prose assured. Kathy Reichs just gets better and better and is now the Alpha female of the genre.' Irish Independent
'Brilliant ... seamless blending of fascinating science and dead-on psychological portrayals, not to mention a whirlwind of a plot' Jeffery Deaver

In the opening scene of Kathy Reichs s 206 Bones, Tempe Brennan regains consciousness and discovers
that she is in some kind of very small, very dark, very cold enclosed space. She is bound, hands to feet, and
there s something the matter with her ankle. She begins, slowly, to remember.
Tempe and Lieutenant Ryan had accompanied recently discovered remains the heiress had been missing
for over a year from Montreal to the Chicago morgue to be returned to the family. Suddenly, Tempe is
accused of mishandling the autopsy and the case. Someone has made an incriminating phone call. Within
hours, the one man who knows who made the call is dead, and Tempe is in the dark. Who wants Tempe
dead, or at least out of the way, and why?
With deft assurance, Reichs weaves between the stories of the old case of the heiress Rose Jurmain and a
new case that may or may not be related. She conveys the incredible devastation that would occur if a
forensic colleague through incompetence or design sabotaged Tempe s work in the laboratory.
The chemistry between Tempe and Ryan is better than ever, and the suspense is fiercely intense in this
twelfth novel from increasingly successful Reichs.
