Waterstones Says

Temperance Brennan is back and faced with a particularly vicious series of murders even by her blood-soaked standards. Boasting Reichs’s innate storytelling verve and a breakneck pace, A Conspiracy of Bones is a worthy addition to this seminal crime series.

Number One New York Times bestselling author Kathy Reichs returns with her nineteenth riveting novel featuring forensic anthropologist Temperance Brennan, who must use all her tradecraft to discover the identity of a faceless corpse, its connection to a decade-old missing child case, and the reason the dead man had her phone number.

It's sweltering in Charlotte, North Carolina, and Temperance Brennan, still recovering from neurosurgery following an aneurysm, is battling nightmares, migraines, and what she thinks might be hallucinations when she receives a series of mysterious text messages, each containing a new picture of a corpse that is missing its face and hands. Immediately, she's anxious to know who the dead man is, and why the images were sent to her.

An identified corpse soon turns up, only partly answering her questions.

To win answers to the others, including the man's identity, she must go rogue. With help from a number of law enforcement associates including her Montreal beau Andrew Ryan and the always-ready-with-a-smart-quip, ex-homicide investigator Skinny Slidell, and utilizing new cutting-edge forensic methods, Tempe draws closer to the astonishing truth.

But the more she uncovers, the darker and more twisted the picture becomes...

“Not one of her best Tempe’s adventures”

I have been reading Kathy Reichs books since the beginning and although I have missed the last few it was really easy to get back into Tempe’s adventures.
The story is gripping although I did find the references to... More

“A fine addition to a favourite series.”

I will always read my Temperance Brennan novels as I am so invested in the characters after all these years. Unfortunately this one just didn’t live up to the standard I’m used to. I didn’t find the plot as gripping... More
