About the Author
As a forensic anthropologist to the province of Quebec, Canada, Kathy Reichs has often said that she works with the dead, but for the living.
Forensics are an integral part of her world, with cases constantly coming in to her lab. And yet her chosen profession is, she says, like any other job. You may get used to what’s happening around you, and to the sounds and smells and sights of death, but this doesn’t mean you become immune to it.
Each of her books is based loosely on the cases she’s worked on, or some experience she’s had. She believes that her stories remain fresh because they originate form her being enmeshed and engaged in forensic work on a regular basis.
Kathy Reichs is one of only eighty-two forensic anthropologists ever certified by the American Board of Forensic Anthropology. She served on the Board of Directors and as Vice President of both the American Academy of Forensic Sciences and the American Board of Forensic Anthropology, and is currently a member of the National Police Services Advisory Council in Canada. She is a Professor in the Department at the University of North Carolina-Charlotte. She is a native of Chicago, where she received her PhD. at Northwestern. She now divides her time between Charlotte, NC and Montreal, Québec.

Kathy Reich's novel is in keeping with previous writings. Short, punchy dialogue, gripping and unfolding gradually with tension, twists and logical unravelling of the storyline. Relentless in her scientific pursuit, Temperance Brennan complements this with her unfailing ferreting out of the case. Only then may matters be satisfactorily concluded. Not quite so easy or comfortable, however. Further revelations unmask dangers that may be more personal than anticipated. As with Kathy Reichs's stories, there are asides that add to the professional procedures. Some romantic interludes are an additional source of interest within the more solemn nature of her endeavours. We are reminded of her motherly responsibilities that inevitably cause some conflicts of interest with her vocation.
Another enjoyable example of the author's talent and the protagonist's occupational hazards. Consistently excellent and no doubt again popular. No qualms about her style nor her varied expression of successfully delivering the suspenseful stories.
Another weapon in Reichs' armour is her ability to perfectly capture place and atmosphere, whether in the `nuts and bolts' description of location, or is as particularly evident in the setting of Yellowknife, the own peculiar history of that location. Reichs' takes us on a historical trip back through Yellowknife's former fortunes as an area rich in gold, to it's now new lucrative position as a diamond -mining town. Personally, I rather enjoy this sojourn down a rags to riches memory lane (at least for some of the prospectors) to flesh out what is at times a slightly leaky story with some twists in the plot signposted a little too clearly for the seasoned crime reader.Read more ›

Enjoy enjoyed the book from start to finish had lots of words I couldn't say but got by understanding of itPublished 1 month ago by mrs K A Judd
Reichs can really do no wrong in my opinion.
She delves into the realm of forensics showing us more closely what her own job used to be.
Worth a punt.
Belief, going with what you feel. Inborn stubbornness leads Temp to follow everything her knowledge and experience is telling her. Well written as usual.Published 3 months ago by Amazon Customer
Finding the books increasingly less and less of the anthropological forensics that set Reichs' books apart and more and more of what I can only describe as more your average crime... Read morePublished 3 months ago by Tracy Terry
