Bones of the Lost (Temperance Brennan #16)

by Kathy Reichs

Inside her purse is the ID card of a local businessman who died in a fire months earlier.

Who was the girl? And was she murdered?

Dr Temperance Brennan, Forensic Anthropologist, must find the answers. She soon learns that a Gulf War veteran stands accused of smuggling artefacts into the country. Could there be a connection between the two cases?

Convinced that the girl’s death was no accident, Tempe soon finds herself at the centre of a conspiracy that extends from South America to Afghanistan. But to find justice for the dead, she must be more courageous – and take more extreme action – than ever before.

“A rollercoaster read which sees Dr Temperance Brennan kick forensic-anthropological ass.”  Time Out

“[a] winning formula…Bones of the Lost is as gritty and pacy as her fans have come to expect.”  Press Association

“You’ll want to keep turning the pages long after lights out to find out what happens next … Reichs’ real-life expertise gives her novels an authenticity that most other crime novelists would kill for ”  Daily Express

“With Kathy Reichs the reader knows they’re in the hands of an expert”  Sunday Express

“Reichs’ seamless blending of fascinating science and dead-on psychological portrayals, not to mention a whirlwind of a plot, make [her novels] a must read”  Jeffery Deaver
