Synopsis

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.

Bones are Forever

A good mystery overall. Relationship between characters is flat, too much unspoken drama and stereotypical cop lingo, not as smart and grpping as earlier books.

If you are a fan of Kathy Reichs and her heroine Tempe Brennen, you won't be disappointed. This time Tempe goes to the West Coast of Canada & enters the world of diamond mining. Of course, Andrew Ryan is along for the ride. A good read as always.

She gets better and better with every book. Loved the fast action, pace and the suspense kept me guessing. Also I loved how she describes the city of Edmonton, of course I have a natural bias as it is my hometown. Overall it's a great book and I relish reading every single word.

Kathy Reichs amazes me. How does she have the time and energy to write great novels & scripts, teach, and work in her field? Loved this one, brought to light an underbelly of Canada we hate to know is there, but gives kuddos to our great Mounties and the fantastic jobs they do.
