Synopsis

#1 New York Times bestselling author Kathy Reichs returns with her sixteenth riveting novel featuring forensic anthropologist Tempe Brennan, whose examination of a young girl killed in a hit and run in North Carolina triggers an investigation into international human trafficking.

When Charlotte police discover the body of a teenage girl along a desolate stretch of two-lane highway, Temperance Brennan fears the worst. The girl’s body shows signs of foul play. Inside her purse police find the ID card of a prominent local businessman, John-Henry Story, who died in a horrific flea market fire months earlier. Was the girl an illegal immigrant turning tricks? Was she murdered?

The medical examiner has also asked Tempe to examine a bundle of Peruvian dog mummies confiscated by U.S. Customs. A Desert Storm veteran named Dominick Rockett stands accused of smuggling the objects into the country. Could there be some connection between the trafficking of antiquitiesand the trafficking of humans?

As the case deepens, Tempe must also grapple with personal turmoil. Her daughter Katy, grieving the death of her boyfriend in Afghanistan, impulsively enlists in the Army. As pressure mounts from all corners, Tempe soon finds herself at the center of a conspiracy that extends all the way from South America, to Afghanistan, and right to the center of Charlotte. “A genius at building suspense” (Daily News, New York), Kathy Reichs is at her brilliant best in this thrilling novel.

Not one of her best
January 14th, 2015
I usually can not put down one of Kathy's books. This one just seemed to move to slow. Far to much time spent getting to the detection and to much time spend worrying about the duaghter.

I love Tempe
December 29th, 2014
I was feeling really disappointed after the last book. This was a huge improvement. Tempe is feisty and can't stop like me. She is a go getter. The first book made me fall for a tough as nails character. One of the best authors are those like Kathy Reichs. She is up there with J.D.Robb and is in a league of her own. No one made me feel so strongly before. I know many people dislike the suspense novels. Kathy Reichs hit my no 1 fast
