FROM THE PUBLISHER
A commercial Jetliner disaster has brought Tempe Brennan to the North Carolina mountains as a member of the investigative agency DMORT. As bomb theories abound, Tempe soon discovers a jarring piece of evidence that raises dangerous questions -- and gets her thrown from the DMORT team. Relentless in her pursuit of its significance, Tempe uncovers a shocking, multilayered tale of deceit and depravity as she probes her way into frightening territory -- where someone wants her stopped in her tracks.

This is the first book of Kathy Reichs I have read (though I know for a fact we have one of hers on a shelf somewhere.) I was pleasantly surprised. I have read a lot of Patricia Cornwell's Kay Scarpetta novels, and wonder if the two forensic females ever run into each other. After all, North Carolina and Virginia are neighboring states, and the professional pool of experts just can't be that huge.

One of the things I especially liked was that this book took place in an area I know quite well and love dearly. The mountains of North Carolina are beautiful. At the point where North Carolina, South Carolina and Georgia come together is an area the czuk family retreats to for replenishment of spirit.

Caught for the m-bag going to our friends in New Zealand.

I'm including a picture of the "Aspen turning", a particularly Colorado thing to see. This was taken on a quick drive my husband and I took up into the mountains. This is how my part of this country looks at this time of year :)

Pulled this out of the box the other morning when I felt like reading something lightish. I have read several books by this author before and find them good page turners even if sometimes the plot is a bit too full of coincidences. Anyway this was another great read, there was perhaps a bit of an overuse of acronyms which can be a bit annoying. With the author being a forensic pathologist herself you know that all the scientific procedures described are going to be very realistic. Actually a few years back when Kathy Reich's was in NZ promoting a book she was asked to investigate some human bones that had been washed up on a South Island beach.
Back into the convention box it goes -thanks for sending it Bookczuk!

A very good and memorable book with some very vivid scenes. A detective novel that moves along well. I will enjoy more of this genre if they come my way.

Yes Daveytay I am journaling, note for future releases – ask me to journal before making the release notes. The problems with sharing TBR piles – the can get muddled.
Back to the novel – it’s a passable forensic novel with less plot holes than if it was a Made for TV Movie. Passed the time.

I probably wouldn't have picked up this book normally, but Cathietay and daveytay recommended it (and pointed out it was a bookczuk book all the way from Charleston, so of course I had to read it then :-)). And I'm really glad I did read it - it was completely different to what I expected from the cover (yes, I know, judging books by their covers is a bad thing, but we all do it...) - a riveting mystery (though I agree with boreal that coincidence was a bit overused), and a fascinating look at forensic anthropology (I didn't realise until about half way through that the author is actually a forensic anthropologist herself - I kept thinking that she must have done a lot of research to be able to write about it so well!)

I think I'll be looking out for more books by this author.

I really enjoyed this book. The only thing I didn't enjoy that much was there were parts that were almost completely jargon, which makes for hard reading, especially if you don't want to read all the explanation of the jargon as well! But overall, a good book! Thanks again to all who have passed it on!

I will probably see if Sherlockfan wants this on tuesday, when we have our meet up, or if she doesn't, I will send it to Krazyblonde.

I took this book to our meet up last night in the hopes that Sherlockfan would want it, but she declined on the excuse that her Mt. TBR is already far to high! So I am going to send it on to Krazyblondeone!
