As usual I couldn't put this Kathy Reichs book down, once I started to read it. The Israeli setting was very interesting. I hope the next reader will also enjoy this book.

Great, a bones mystery!

Journal Entry 4 by jgralike from Almelo, Overijssel Netherlands on Friday, December 12, 2008
I could not put this book down either, but I must admit I was very confused by the what, why and how of the mystery. Rightfully, one of the characters in the plot mentioned the Da Vinci Code as a comparison to their own project: to me that one was just as confusing, had the same kind of 'prove' out of only one assumption, and kills that did not seem to have any connection to each other. Good for this book: deaths that were not connected were explained in the end!

One question needs further inquiry, though: when did the early christians (merely jews that believed that Jesus was the Messiah) stop living after the books of Mozes - if they did? One set of bones was shrouded in 'linen and wool', a forbidden combination, which did not ring any bell with the excavators, but leaves me (spinner, weaver, reader of old books) quizzled...

Seems like an interesting book! Thanks for the present, jgralike!

From the cover:
A gripping and explosive new thriller from internationally acclaimed forensic anthropologist and New York Times bestselling author Kathy Reichs, featuring Temperance Brennan and Detective Andrew Ryan on the trail of a modern murder and an ancient biblical mystery...

When an Orthodox Jewish man is found shot to death in Montreal, Temperance Brennan is called in to examine the body and to figure out the puzzling damage to the corpse. Unexpectedly, a stranger slips her a photograph of a skeleton and assures her it is the key to the victim's death. Before she knows it, Tempe is involved in an international mystery as old as Jesus, and one that could lead to the rewriting of two thousand years of religious history.

As Tempe investigates, she learns that the stranger's picture shows bones uncovered during an archaeological dig. She discovers the Montreal shooting victim ran an import business that just might have been a front for the trading of black market antiquities. Along with Detective Andrew Ryan and biblical archaeologist Jake Drum, Tempe travels to Israel to probe the origins of the skeleton and the ancient crypt in which it was found. Together they make a startling discovery that raises radical questions about Christ's death and places them squarely in the middle of a swirling controversy. Could one of the tombs really be Christ's last resting place? Are the bones in the ancient ossuary the last remnants of James, the brother of Jesus, as the inscription claims? Or has someone concocted an elaborate hoax?

Using her skills as a forensic scientist, Tempe plunges into the most controversial case of her career. The stakes have never been higher -- the more she learns, the greater the danger. And though Ryan is sexier and more engaging than ever, he may not be able to protect Tempe in this place where there seem to be so many foes.

Cross Bones, with its lightning pace, intricately plotted story, riveting and state-of-the-art forensic detail, is Kathy Reichs's most compelling and dramatic novel yet.

FINALLY I read this book and really enjoyed it!
Although lots of mysterie and unanswered questions, I really liked this novel. Didn't read anything by Kathy Reichs before, but it's definitely worth another try :-)
Thanks for this gift jgralike, I'll send the book traveling again!

Op de jaarlijkse grote meeting!

Took it with me. I'm currently reading the whole series in order, so this one had to come with me.

Journal Entry 10 by dutch-book at Heerenveen, Fryslân (Friesland) Netherlands on Sunday, September 16, 2018
Finished it. Read this before in Dutch, but don't remember a thing. Story was okay, but I found Ryan irritating and I definitely don't like it that there's a relationship between Temperance and Ryan. It's just not right.
