Publisher Description

A gripping Temperance Brennan novel from the world-class forensic anthropologist and #1 bestselling author Kathy Reichs

A newborn baby is found wedged in a vanity cabinet in a rundown apartment near Montreal.

Dr Temperance Brennan, forensic anthropologist to the province of Quebec, is brought in to investigate. While there, she discovers the mummified remains of two more babies within the same room.

Shocked and distressed, Tempe must use all her skills and inner strength to focus on the facts. But when the autopsies reveal that the children died of unnatural causes, the hunt for the mother - a young woman with a seedy past and at least three aliases - is on.

The trail leads Tempe to Yellowknife, a cold, desolate diamond-mining town on the edge of the Arctic Circle, where her quest for the truth only throws up more questions, more secrets, and more dead bodies.

Taking risks and working alone, Tempe refuses to give up until she has discovered why the babies died. But in such a hostile environment, can she avoid being the next victim?
Dr Kathy Reichs is a professional forensic anthropologist. She has worked for decades with chief medical examiners, the FBI, and even a United Nations Tribunal on Genocide.

However, she is best known for her internationally bestselling Temperance Brennan novels, which draw on her remarkable experience to create the most vividly authentic, true-to-life crime thrillers on the market and which are the inspiration for the hit TV series Bones.
Many of the world's greatest thriller writers are huge fans of her work:

'Kathy Reichs writes smart – no, make that brilliant – mysteries that are as realistic as nonfiction and as fast-paced as the best thrillers about Jack Reacher, or Alex Cross.' JAMES PATTERSON

'One of my favourite writers.' KARIN SLAUGHTER

'I love Kathy Reichs? – always scary, always suspenseful, and I always learn something.' LEE CHILD

'Nobody does forensics thrillers like Kathy Reichs. She’s the real deal.' DAVID BALDACCI

'Each book in Kathy Reichs’s fantastic Temperance Brennan series is better than the last. They’re filled with riveting twists and turns – and no matter how many books she writes, I just can’t get enough!' LISA SCOTTOLINE

'Nobody writes a more imaginative thriller than Kathy Reichs.' CLIVE CUSSLER

Bones Are Forever.

Another good read in the Tempe Brennan series. Well plotted. A good page turner.

Bones are forever .... I hope that is also true for Temperance Brennan!
I have waited patiently for the next chapter in Tempe's life and feel rewarded. I have thoroughly enjoyed Bones are forever. I must admit though I am impatient and hope that more is to come. I also feel teased by the relationship between Tempe and Ryan. I love theses characters! I hope Kathy Reichs continues to make reading this rewarding and satisfying.
I also want to thank Kathy Reichs for not only entertaining me with this 'edge of the seat' story line but for educating me and inspiring me to research Yellowknife and diamond mining, all very interesting.

Not so good

I found this a bit boring. Not enough of what the story was about. Too much dwelling on the diamond trade. Not up to her usual standard.
