Title: Speaking in Bones
Author: Kathy Reichs
Rating: 4 stars out of 5
Review: Well I have read every book in this series and some of them I have enjoyed more then others - this one actually was quite good - I liked that Tempe was less supergirl like in this book then in the last few - also a large amount of dialogue was used to point out why she is such a supergirl at times in her books - I enjoyed that because I completely agreed with her and feel the same way - as a person we need to believe we can take care of ourselves and we do not want to think someone needs to come in and save us from ourselves and from others -
Ryan was in this book and I love their relationship and the way they interact with each other - it is a real relationship that is not based on fake anything - it is a long time in coming and everyone - including you - have issues and need to realize that when you set out and start a relationship with another person who you would like to be perfect - but is not quite perfect enough you need to be OK with that since you are not perfect at all -
Tempe's mother is in this book and you hear a bit from her sister - Katy is back in the service and out of county - we do not hear from Pete in this book and that is good I thing - we all need a break from Pete - A good mystery with loads of death and body pieces - new characters that you will like and life decisions that will change things in the future -
A good read that took me 2 days of free time to get through - I didn't want to put it down and kept picking it up as I had time.
This series is recommended for mystery loves -
Synopsis: The latest blockbuster suspense novel in the pulse-pounding Temperance Brennan series, from #1 New York Times bestselling author and forensic anthropologist Kathy Reichs.
For every case Temperence Brennance has solved, there remain innumerable unidentified bodies in her lab. Information on some of these is available online, where amateur sleuths sometimes take a stab at solving cases. One day, Tempe gets a call from Hazel “Lucky” Strike, a web sleuth who believes she’s successfully connected a body in Tempe’s lab to a missing persons report on an eighteen-year-old named Cora Teague. Since the bones in her lab do seem to match Cora’s medical records, Tempe looks into the case, returning to the spot where the bones were originally found. What seems at first to be an isolated tragedy takes on a more sinister cast as Tempe uncovers two more sets of bones nearby. When she then learns that the area is known as a viewing point for a famous unexplained light phenomenon with significance for a local cult, Tempe’s suspicious turn to murder by ritual sacrifice—a theory thrown into question when Hazel herself turns up dead. Still reeling from her mother’s diagnosis and the shock of Andrew Ryan’s potentially life-change proposal, Tempe races to solve the murders before the body count climbs further.
