The first Temperance Brennan novel in the “cleverly plotted and expertly maintained series” (The New York Times Book Review) from the #1 internationally bestselling thriller writer Kathy Reichs.
Her life is devoted to justice—even for those she never knew.
In the year since Temperance Brennan left behind a shaky marriage in North Carolina, work has often preempted her weekend plans to explore Québec. When a female corpse is discovered meticulously dismembered and stashed in trash bags, Temperance detects an alarming pattern—and she plunges into a harrowing search for a killer. But her investigation is about to place those closest to her—her best friend and her own daughter—in mortal danger…
“A genius at building suspense” (Daily News, New York), Kathy Reichs’s Temperance Brennan books are both “accomplished and chilling” (People) and “ripe with intricate settings and memorable characters” (Milwaukee Journal Sentinel).

Kathy Reichs is undoubtedly one of the best contemperary authors whove ever had there work published. I have not heard the audio book, so I cannot comment on it. However with this full verson our sure to enjoy the breathtaking action suspense, and subtle, and throuought her work, building tension between her and SQ Detective Andrew Ryan. A must read or in this case, hear.
Is it the book or narrator?
I’m not sure if the book was slow or the narration. There were too many pauses in the narration and I couldn’t stand hearing the narrator take deep breaths. It took me forever to listen to the book and if I could’ve returned it, I would’ve. Lucky for me I bought it on sale.
