Kathy Reichs, #1 "New York Times "bestselling author and producer
of the FOX televison hit "Bones, "is at her brilliant best in a
riveting novel featuring forensic anthropologist Tempe Brennan--a
story of infanticide, murder, and corruption, set in the
high-stakes, high-danger world of diamond mining. A woman calling
herself Amy Roberts checks into a Montreal hospital complaining of
uncontrolled bleeding. Doctors see evidence of a recent birth, but
before they can act, Roberts disappears. Dispatched to the address
she gave at the hospital, police discover bloody towels outside in
a Dumpster. Fearing the worst, they call Temperance Brennan to
investigate. In a run-down apartment Tempe makes a ghastly
discovery: the decomposing bodies of three infants. According to
the landlord, a woman named Alma Rogers lives there. Then a man
shows up looking for Alva Rodriguez. Are Amy Roberts, Alma Rogers,
and Alva Rodriguez the same person? Did she kill her own babies?
And where is she now? Heading up the investigation is Tempe's old
flame, homicide detective Andrew Ryan. His counterpart from the
Royal Canadian Mounted Police is sergeant Ollie Hasty, who happens
to have a little history with Tempe himself, which she regrets.
This unlikely trio follows the woman's trail, first to Edmonton and
then to Yellowknife, a remote diamond-mining city deep in the
Northwest Territories. What they find in Yellowknife is more
sinister than they ever could have imagined. Crackling with sexual
tension, whip-smart dialogue, and the startling plot twists Reichs
delivers so well, "Bones Are Forever "is the fifteenth thrilling
novel in Reichs's "cleverly plotted and expertly maintained series"
("The New York Times Book Review"). With the FOX series "Bones "in
its eighth season and her popularity at its broadest ever, Kathy
Reichs has reached new heights in suspenseful storytelling.
