Tempe Brennan regains consciousness and discovers that she is in some kind of very small very dark very cold enclosed space. She is bound hands to feet and there''s something the matter with her ankle. She begins slowly to remember: Tempe and Lieutenant Ryan had accompanied the recently discovered remains of a missing heiress from Montreal to the Chicago morgue. And someone made an incriminating phone call

From the Publisher:
Forensic anthropologist Temperance Brennan regains consciousness to discover herself bound and trapped in a small enclosed space before remembering an autopsy case that resulted in a murder and an attempt on her life.
Slowly, painstakingly, with the same precision with which this forensic anthropologist would attack a mysterious corpse, Tempe Brennan reconstructs her memory. She is tied and bound, in a cold, dark room, at someone's mercy. But whose? Bestselling author Kathy Reichs tells Tempe's harrowing story in a thrilling series of flashbacks. Investigating the murder of a rich woman, Tempe had begun to connect this case with three other murders. Now it seems whoever committed those crimes is her captor.
Author Bio
Kathy Reichs
Crime novelist Kathy Reichs is proof that real life can be just as compelling as fiction. When not writing, Reichs works as a forensic anthropologist--a profession she shares with her series protagonist, Temperance Brennan--and she has been called upon to exhume a mass grave in Guatemala, testify at the U.N. Tribunal on Genocide in Rwanda, and identify remains found at the World Trade Center after the terrorist attacks of 9/11, among other assignments. A native of Chicago, Reichs (pronounced RAKES) earned a doctoral degree in physical anthropology from Northwestern University in 1975 and subsequently embarked on a teaching career. On occasion, police detectives would bring skeletal remains to her university office to get her advice. "I found that very compelling," she told one interviewer. "I liked the idea of the relevance of it--that you could actually impact someone's life. . . . [In academia] if you're wrong, you're not going to send anybody to jail or you're not going to misidentify a missing person." Deciding to change her career focus, she was certified by the American Board of Forensic Anthropology in 1986 and began consulting in the office of North Carolina's chief medical examiner. Later that decade she took on a similar role at the Laboratoire de Sciences Judiciaires et de M├ędecine in Quebec. Her first Temperance Brennan novel, DEJA DEAD, was published in 1997 and won an Arthur Ellis Award from the Crime Writers of Canada. Reichs has since published several more novels featuring the coolly competent Brennan, each of which has appeared on the major bestseller lists. In 2005 a television series, BONES, based on the books and produced by Reichs, premiered on the Fox network. Reichs, who has also written for young adults, acknowledges that her books and TV show provide escapist entertainment. She believes, however, that they serve a greater purpose as well. "Hopefully, [they] make the public aware of how powerful a tool science can be," she has said. "[Perhaps I] will inspire young people, especially young women, to go into science, or to become homicide detectives."


"[A] cleverly plotted and expertly maintained series." - Marilyn Stasio 09/06/2009

"[O]utstanding....With her usual blend of cutting-edge forensic science and a stubborn, compelling heroine, Reichs manages to juggle several story lines without losing an ounce of momentum." (starred review) 06/15/2009
