Publisher Description

In Kathy Reichs's tenth bestselling novel featuring forensic anthropologist Temperance Brennan, the discovery of a young girl's skeleton in Acadia, Canada might be connected to the disappearance of Tempe's childhood friend.

For Tempe Brennan, the discovery of a young girl's skeleton in Acadia, Canada, is more than just another case. Evangeline, Tempe's childhood best friend, was also from Acadia. Named for the character in the Longfellow poem, Evangeline was the most exotic person in Tempe's eight-year-old world. When Evangeline disappeared, Tempe was warned not to search for her, that the girl was "dangerous."

Thirty years later, flooded with memories, Tempe cannot help wondering if this skeleton could be the friend she had lost so many years ago. And what is the meaning of the strange skeletal lesions found on the bones of the young girl?

Meanwhile, Tempe's beau, Ryan, investigates a series of cold cases. Two girls dead. Three missing. Could the New Brunswick skeleton be part of the pattern? As Tempe draws on the latest advances in forensic anthropology to penetrate the past, Ryan hunts down a serial predator.

Lived up to all my expectations!

I have been a big fan of Kathy Reichs since she started writing. This was the first audio I have listen to by her. It was all I could ask for. The reading was wonderful, the characters were real and i felt like I was right back where I left off with her last book.

I was introduced to Kathy Reichs books while traveling and had read every Patricia Cornwell out there, both authors are outstanding. If you enjoy Patricia Cornwell....Kathy Reichs is your next best.....their characters mirror each other and keep you wanting more. I always have a hard time not finishing the books in one sitting. Truly suspensful!! AWESOME!!

Bones to Ashes

The entertainment was worth the price of the audiobook. Her books tend to be very "preachy" on some subjects when she goes ad nauseum into detail, but in this case her dialougues on Canadian history & geography were moderate. The story started out pretty well, but pooped out by the last few chapters and I had already figured out most of it. The narrator was very good and seemed to be a perfect character fit. You always learn something from her books, it just depends if you are a fan of that story's "thread."
