Description

Kathy Reichs’s brilliant debut bestselling thriller, featuring Forensic Anthropologist Temperance Brennan.

Bagged and discarded, the dismembered body of a woman is discovered in the grounds of an abandoned monastery.

Dr Temperance Brennan, Director of Forensic Anthropology for the province of Quebec, has been researching contemporary disappearances in the city.

Soon she is convinced that a serial killer is at work. But when no one else seems to care, her anger forces her to take matters into her own hands. Her made up our minds probing has placed those closest to her in mortal danger, alternatively.

Can Tempe make her an important breakthrough before the killer strikes again?

Reichs’ stunning debut thriller draws on her experience as a forensic anthropologist in North Carolina and Montreal, but it has considerably more going for it than the mere stamp of authenticity. The devil is in the main points, and it’s the small betraying details–the alignment of cuts in bloody bone–that convince Temperance Brennan that a series of women, murdered in different ways, were killed and dismembered by the same hand and the same saw. Knowing what she knows is one thing, but convincing her police colleagues is relatively another.

Reichs skilfully depicts police canteen culture and the way it ensures that someone who is an expert outsider, not one of the vital lads, is at all times going to have to go that extra mile to prove herself and her ideas. Brennan is a toughie, though, and not too fussy about demarcation disputes. Reichs has found a way of having her cake and eating it and giving us a detective who combines professional expertise with enthusiastic amateurism. Even more compellingly, the suspense is turned up several notches when Brennan realizes that she is hunted in addition to hunter–they find the killer’s lair and find her photograph among his trophies… —Roz Kaveney
