Publisher Description

Number One New York Times bestselling author Kathy Reichs returns with her nineteenth riveting novel featuring forensic anthropologist Temperance Brennan, who must use all her tradecraft to discover the identity of a faceless corpse, its connection to a decade-old missing child case, and why the dead man had her phone number.

It’s sweltering in Charlotte, North Carolina and Temperance Brennan, still recovering from neurosurgery following an aneurysm, is battling nightmares, migraines, and what she thinks might be hallucinations when she receives a series of mysterious text messages, each containing a new picture of a corpse that is missing its face and hands. Immediately, she’s anxious to know who the dead man is, and why the images were sent to her.

An identified corpse soon turns up, only partly answering her questions.

To win answers to the others, including the man’s identity, she must go rogue. With help from a number of law enforcement associates including her Montreal beau Andrew Ryan and the always-ready-with-a-smart-quip, ex-homicide investigator Skinny Slidell, and utilizing new cutting-edge forensic methods, Tempe draws closer to the astonishing truth.

But the more she uncovers, the darker and more twisted the picture becomes ...

Praise for Kathy Reichs:

'Kathy Reichs writes smart—no, make that brilliant—mysteries that are as realistic as non-fiction and as fast-paced as the best thrillers about Jack Reacher or Alex Cross' James Patterson

'Kathy Reichs continues to be one of the most distinctive and talented writers in the genre. Her legions of readers worldwide will agree with me when I declare that the more books she writes, the more enthusiastic fans she’ll garner' Sandra Brown

'Each book in Kathy Reichs’s fantastic Temperance Brennan series is better than the last. They’re filled with riveting twists andturns. No matter how many novels she writes, I just can’t get enough!' Lisa Scottoline

'Every minute in the morgue with Tempe is golden' The New York Times Book Review

'Bloody good beach reading!' USA Today

'Brennan is a winner, and so is Reichs' Daily News

'This is Kathy Reichs as maybe you’ve never read her before. The story starts like a pistol shot and fires nonstop through over three hundred layered pages. The twists are meticulously planned and thrown like bamboozling curves on the edge of the plate. But you will see new layers to the brilliant Tempe Brennan that may surprise you. Read this book. It was created by a master of the genre who knocks it out of the park.' David Baldacci, bestselling author of One Good Deed and Redemption

'Nobody writes a more imaginative thriller than Kathy Reichs or crafts a better sentence. Her latest forensic investigation, A Conspiracy of Bones, rivets with its non-stop pursuit of some of the vilest villains ever.' Clive Cussler, bestselling author of Night Probe and Sahara

'Sinister and chilling. In Tempe Brennan’s riveting return to the investigative trail, she suddenly finds herself caught in a tangled web. Who can she trust? Maybe not even herself. Bones is back and better than ever.' Lisa Gardner, bestselling author of Never Tell, Look for Me, and Right Behind You

'A Conspiracy of Bones shows off Kathy Reichs’ dazzling new level of plotting mastery. A thrilling read from one of my favorite writers.' Karin Slaughter, bestselling author of The Lost Widow, Pieces of Her, and Cop Town

Sigh

I have been a fan of Kathy Reichs (and Tempe) for decades and so excited when this latest book was released. I’m not even a quarter of the way in and the number of times Tempe (or is it Kathy?) mentions vaccination and makes reference to anti-vaxxers is wearing thin. For goodness sake, go on a talk show to push your vaccination rhetoric, please don’t drag Tempe into it. I don’t know if you’ve met anyone who has had the misfortune to be injured by a vaccine, but I have. Whilst I don’t believe in the dogma that vaccinations cause autism, I do believe that they are a medical procedure that parents should consider carefully - as they should with ANY medical treatment for their child. Like all medical interventions, vaccines are not without risk. Anyone who claims otherwise is of questionable intelligence. I really hope the narrative moves away from the vaccination debate soon because I expected better from both Kathy and Tempe. Tempe never struck me as a head-in-the-sand-do-what-the-Doctor-says-without-question-if-they-say-it’s-safe-then-it-is type of person. Rather, her appeal has always been that she has always questioned everything and everyone. You’re better than this Tempe!
