Synopsis

The #1 New York Times bestselling author and producer of the Fox television hit, Bones, returns with a spectacular new Tempe Brennan novel.

There are 206 bones in the human body. Forensic anthropologists know them intimately, can read in them stories of brief or long lives and use them to reconstruct every kind of violent end. 206 Bones opens with Tempe regaining consciousness and discovering that she is in some kind of very small, very dark, very cold enclosed space. She is bound, hands to feet. Who wants Tempe dead, or at least out of the way, and why? Tempe begins slowly to reconstruct...

Tempe and Lieutenant Ryan had accompanied the recently discovered remains of a missing heiress from Montreal to the Chicago morgue. Suddenly, Tempe was accused of mishandling the autopsy -- and the case. Someone made an incriminating phone call. Within hours, the one man with information about the call was dead. Back in Montreal, the corpse of a second elderly woman was found in the woods, and then a third.

Seamlessly weaving between Tempe's present-tense terror as she's held captive and her memory of the cases of these murdered women, Reichs conveys the incredible devastation that would occur if a forensic colleague sabotaged work in the lab. The chemistry between Tempe and Ryan intensifies as this complex, riveting tale unfolds. Reichs is writing at the top of her game.

206 Bones

Really, it's the usual good Reichs read. Certainly, a bit of a page turner, just heat one needs in summer.

precise would have been better

Too much details went into the persons involved in the abduction, it's only towards the last part that the main character realised who had mugged her, but she was right when she guessed another female colleague, who was very eager to get her hands on every case that was handled, a not too smart person but wants a high profile to boost her own business which she has with her own husband

Not what you're expecting
January 5th, 2014
I read the preview first, I was hooked from the suspense in a matter of pages. After downloading the full book I was slightly disappointed with the immediate change in topic. Never the less I carried on. I never got to the point of not being able to put it down. Unlike the other Kathy Reich's books I almost had to force myself to pick it up again. I'm glad I read it, but its definitely one of the better 'Bones' books.

Slow to star, but interesting

There are a painful amount of pointless details in this book, and only a spattering of them become useful. It is rather accurate as far as anthropology and forensics.
