The gripping new Temperance Brennan novel from the world-class forensic anthropologist and Number 1 bestselling author Kathy Reichs. Tempe is faced with the horrifying possibility that the killer who got away in Monday Mourning is back...
For a decade, Temperance Brennan has been haunted by the one who got away.
The killer of young women. The monster.
And the one who has now come back.
Feeding on fear, grief and rage.
Killing again. Killing girls.
Coming for Tempe.
In bestseller Reichs's exciting, if overly complex, 17th novel featuring Temperance Brennan (after 2013's Bones of the Lost), the forensic anthropologist attends a meeting at the Law Enforcement Center in Charlotte, N.C., at which Vermont detective Umparo Rodas presents DNA evidence linking the unsolved murder of an 11-year-old Charlotte girl to Canadian serial killer Anique Pomerleau, who managed to elude Brennan and her superior, lead detective Andrew Ryan, in 2004's Monday Mourning. Brennan first has to find Ryan, who has withdrawn from the world, and persuade him to return to find Pomerleau. Tie-ins with other old cases, signs that the killer is targeting Brennan's own neighborhood, and Brennan's skill at interpreting confusing, potentially misleading forensic evidence build the suspense. Brennan's strained relations with Ryan, the antics of crass detective Erskine "Skinny" Slidell, and the uncanny aid provided by Brennan's mother, Daisy, provide grist for series fans when Brennan finally unmasks a surprising killer.

Bones Never Lie
Excellent book. Kept me on the edge of my seat with plenty of twists and turns.
Bones Never Lie
Really enjoyed this latest Tempe story - I've read them all and for the first time, thought I'd worked out who the killer was by chapter 20. I literally couldn't put the book down until I'd finished just so I could find out if I was right! Brilliant writing KR
