From the bestselling author of "Cross Bones," as well as the inspiration behind the new Fox series "Bones," comes another Temperance Brennan adventure involving a lucrative, clandestine trade that deals in body parts--and leaves its donors dead. Unabridged. 10 CDs.
From the Publisher:
Following the tremendous success of Cross Bones, Kathy Reichs explores another high-profile topic in Break No Bones -- a case that lands forensic anthropologist Temperance Brennan in the middle of a gruesome international scheme. ||Summoned to South Carolina to fill in for a negligent colleague, Tempe is stuck teaching a lackluster archaeology field school in the ruins of a Native American burial ground on the Charleston shore. But when Tempe stumbles upon a fresh skeleton among the ancient bones, her old friend Emma Rousseau, the local coroner, persuades her to stay on and help with the investigation. When Emma reveals a disturbing secret, it becomes more important than ever for Tempe to help her friend close the case. ||The body count begins to climb. An unidentified man is found hanging from a tree deep in the woods. Another corpse shows up in a barrel. There are mysterious nicks on bones in several bodies, and signs of strangulation. Tempe follows the trail to a free street clinic with a belligerent staff, a suspicious doctor, and a donor who is a charismatic televangelist. Clues abound in the most unlikely places as Tempe uses her unique knowledge and skills to build her case, even as the local sheriff remains dubious and her own life is threatened. ||Tempe's love life is also complicated. Ryan, her current flame, has come down to visit her from Montreal, and Pete, her former husband, is investigating the disappearance of a local woman -- and he and Tempe are staying in the same borrowed beach house. Ryan and Pete compete for her attentions, and Tempe finds herself more distracted by her feelings for both men than she expected. ||Break No Bones is a smart, taut thriller featuring the kind of high-stakes crime that makes the headlines every week. Reichs, the inspiration for the hit FOX TV show Bones, is writing at the top of her form, and Tempe has never been more compelling.

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 Médecine 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."

Praise

"This novel confirms the [Bones] series' place in the front ranks of the ever-expanding forensic thriller subgenre." 05/22/2006

"Often compared with Patricia Cornwall, Reichs has a lighter touch, and her main character is more engaging than the angst-ridden Kay Scarpetta....The plot unfolds enticingly and the author's knowledge of her subject is obvious at every turn." July 21, 2006

"An engrossing entry in a widely read series." July 1, 2006
