Kathy Reichs is the author of eighteen New York Times bestselling novels featuring forensic anthropologist Temperance Brennan. Like her protagonist, 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 and serves on the National Police Services Advisory Council in Canada. 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.

If you asked me I wouldn't say that this book is something special, however it is a well-crafted book that moves at a fine pace and which manages to keep the reader's interest alive from first page to last. And it is funny, in more than one ways; especially when, let's say, author number one, decides to make the life of author number two a little bit hard, by driving the story in a completely different direction from the one at hand, and thus make him or her come up with some answers in questions that were not there in the first place. As a result there are many twists and turns and just when one thinks that he's found the solution to the riddle, something turns up that brings things upside down.
But let's take things from the start, or rather from the end; today. Following the last instructions or, maybe we should say, respecting the last wishes of Rosemary Thomas, a curator of a San Francisco Museum, her closest friends and relatives, as well as some other people who were in one way or another connected with her, meet at her workplace to celebrate the anniversary of her death. Rosemary has been tried, found guilty and executed ten years before for the murder of her husband Christopher. All the evidence at the time was overwhelmingly against her and no one, or almost no one, had any doubts that she committed the crime. Two men though were not so sure that she was guilty.Read more ›
The plot is not that much, and if you' ve read enough mysteries, you get all the hints early enough. So, the story is so-and-so.
But the editing is seamless. The different styles are there, each author gives something different, of course, but the story flows so naturally, as if written by one person.
I believe the next one will be a really great story.
Its a shame, could have been a page turner!
mystery not easily solved. It did not need to be done so why did they do it? Did they fall out over it? The questions
it raises fall outside the story as each of them working alone could have produced a work of equal interest.

I found the in depth part on the execution very gory although the rest was ok I assumed that Christopher Thomas was not dead very early on.Published on 7 April 2014 by J R.
Thin plot and predictable, very disappointing, I struggled to muster the will to finish reading to the end. An experiment gone wrong.Published on 17 Mar. 2014 by MR KEVIN J TAYLOR
