Deja Dead (Temperance Brennan #1)

by Kathy Reichs

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 recent 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 determined probing has placed those closest to her in mortal danger, however.

Can Tempe make her crucial breakthrough before the killer strikes again?

Deja Dead is terrific and terrifying in its own right … Excellent plotting, appealingly headstrong heroine and superb mastery of tension”  The Times

“Accomplished and chilling.” People

“Kathy Reichs knows how to put all [of her] exotic experience into a novel….Quebec’s own Southern gal give[s] Cornwell a run for the money.” Margaret Cannon, Globe and Mail

“What makes Déjà Dead so compelling, in addition to the authoritative descriptions of how a forensic scientist ‘reads’ the story the bones tell, is the character of Brennan — smart, persistent, gutsy, ironic yet vulnerable.” Judy Stoffman, Toronto Star
