Summary

Summary

A New York Times bestseller


To some, the dead are a commodity. For Tempe Brennan, they hold the key to cracking a horrific crime ring.

Among the ancient remains in a Native American burial ground, Tempe discovers a fresh skeleton -- and what began as an ordinary teaching stint at an archeology field school in Charleston, South Carolina, fast becomes a heated investigation into an alarming pattern of homicides. The clues hidden in the bones lead to a street clinic where a monstrous discovery awaits, and Tempe -- whose personal life is in upheaval, with two men competing for her -- can't afford any distractions as she pieces together a shattering and terrifying puzzle.

Editorial Reviews

A brilliant novel in the tradition of the best Southern gothic writing! What a pleasure it is to watch Tempe Brennan on the job once again, this time in the perfectly realized world of South Carolina. Reichs's seamless blending of fascinating science and dead-on psychological portrayals, not to mention a whirlwind of a plot, make Break No Bones a must read." -- Jeffery Deaver, author of The Cold Moon and The Twelfth Card
A rare treat indeed for the discerning mystery reader! Kathy Reichs is a working forensic anthropologist who can also write! She combines her brilliance in both arts in her mesmerizing novels, and Break No Bones is the best yet! I am awed by its power and her ability to demonstrate what I call 'the silent secrets in the bones.' Once again, I am so impressed with the wealth of knowledge Reichs draws on, her suspenseful plotting, and her marvelous ear for dialogue and sense of place. Temperance Brennan rides again in this compelling tale of a suspenseful murder probe. Reichs' fans will be delighted; I predict an overnight bestseller! Reading Break No Bones kept pulling me away from my own deadlines, but I loved it!" -- Ann Rule, author of Green River, Running Red; Worth More Dead and the forthcoming Too Late to Say Goodbye

“A rare treat…mesmerizing…Reading Break No Bones kept pulling me away from my own deadlines, but I loved it!”  Ann Rule, New York Times bestselling author
“This novel confirms the series’ place in the front rank of the ever-expanding forensic thriller subgenre.”  Publishers Weekly
“Readers…will appreciate the forensic detail here, and more character-oriented readers will respond to Reichs’ likable and well-developed cast…An engrossing entry in a widely read series.”  Booklist
“Fact can be stranger than fiction, and through her outstanding and gritty series, Reichs gives readers fascinating, if disturbing, fictionalized looks at cases she’s been involved in. Tempe is brilliant and flawed, and her thought processes are always intriguing. This is another chillingly good chapter of the series.” RT Book Reviews (4 stars)
