Speaking in Bones (Temperance Brennan #18) by Kathy Reichs *Review*

* I received a eARC of this book for my honest review*

For every case Temperence Brennance has solved, there remain innumerable unidentified bodies in her lab. Information on some of these is available online, where amateur sleuths sometimes take a stab at solving cases. One day, Tempe gets a call from Hazel “Lucky” Strike, a web sleuth who believes she’s successfully connected a body in Tempe’s lab to a missing persons report on an eighteen-year-old named Cora Teague. Since the bones in her lab do seem to match Cora’s medical records, Tempe looks into the case, returning to the spot where the bones were originally found. What seems at first to be an isolated tragedy takes on a more sinister cast as Tempe uncovers two more sets of bones nearby. When she then learns that the area is known as a viewing point for a famous unexplained light phenomenon with significance for a local cult, Tempe’s suspicious turn to murder by ritual sacrifice—a theory thrown into question when Hazel herself turns up dead. Still reeling from her mother’s diagnosis and the shock of Andrew Ryan’s potentially life-change proposal, Tempe races to solve the murders before the body count climbs further.


Well I used to read Kathy Reichs books and I have loved her book but for some weird reason I have stopped reading her books. Not because I don't like her books because I do love the books I have read, I guess I just haven't been into mystery and crime books lately.  

I saw this one on NetGalley and since I haven't read any of Kathy Reichs books in a few years I decided to give this one a try.   Boy am I glad i did because I very much enjoyed this one.   Even though I am way behind in the series I was just a little bit confused but not very much.

It is very well written and like all of the books I have read by this author before I could very well imagine everything going on and all the characters.

I give this 5 out of 5.

If you want to purchase this book it July 21st 2015
