What BeeBee Read: Bones Never Lie by Kathy Reichs
So while I've been on my blogging break, I have been picking up some extra hours at work. Which has left me with a couple of hours to spare between finishing and starting again.
I've packed my handbag, stocked with fine fare like jelly babies, notebooks and obviously a novel or two and a kindle. Last month one of the books in my bag was this thriller by international best-selling author Kathy Reichs returns with another novel from The Temperance Brennan series.
Tempe is called in to consult on a case, alarm bells start to sound as it becomes clear that she has searched for this child-killing monster before.
This is her ‘one’ that got away.
Picking up from where the last tale dropped off Detective Ryan has fallen off the grid, grief stricken since the death of his daughter.
So before she can get down to business Temperance Brennan must first track him down.
This time the forensic anthropologist gets help from an unexpected avenue, her ill mother. Quickly coincidences begin to mount until it becomes clear that the murders are all, in some way, connected to Brennan.
As the search heats up and evidence begins to mount, Ryan and Brennan find that their prime suspect has also been killed and the body hidden in a barrel of maple syrup. Which turns out to be a successful preservation tool.
Question is - who is killing these girls?
