Publisher Description

From the New York Times bestselling author of Speaking in Bones, the first Temperance Brennan novel in the “cleverly plotted and expertly maintained series” (The New York Times Book Review).

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 Quebec. 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 ripe with intricate settings and memorable characters” (Milwaukee Journal Sentinel).

Deja Dead

Really good book but lags a little at times. I'm interested to see if the author shortens some of her lengthy diatribes and sticks more to the story line. It is obvious that she has been a non- fiction writer up til now and is used to writing more fact filled academic books.

Eh. It's good enough for a first book

The book is really good, but I agree with many others, it lags at times. So far I have read only two of Kathy reichs books, and I have noticed that she tends to prolong the story. At times the story gets a little bland, but the ending of her books are always promising! Here books always end well enough to convince the reader to read on in the series.

Mysterious, thrilling, and just plain great!

Kathy Reich's first Tempe Brennan novel... a must-read. The plot is so intriguing and... I can't describe it, you've just got to read it!
