The key to a modern murder lies in the sands of history. Examining a badly decomposed corpse is de rigueur for forensic anthropologist Temperance Brennan. But puzzling damage on the body of a shooting victim, an Orthodox Jewish man, suggests this is no ordinary Montreal murder. When a stranger slips Tempe a photograph of a skeleton unearthed at an archaeological site, Tempe uncovers chilling ties between the dead man and secrets long buried in the dust of Israel. Traveling there with Detective Andrew Ryan, Tempe plunges into an international mystery as old as Jesus, and centered on the controversial discovery of Christ's tomb. Has a mastermind lured her into an elaborate hoax? If not, Tempe may be on the brink of rewriting two thousand years of history -- if she can survive the foes dead set on burying her.

Jednak miałam wrażenie, że autorka zasypuje mnie milionem informacji na raz, co dało mi skojarzenie z mało zajmującą lekturą podręcznika. Zapewne kiedyś wrócę do tej książki i mam nadzieję, ż...
4 1/2 stars!I found this book to be Ms. Reichs' best to date. It is true that the premise of the storyline is not new. There have been many books written on the possibility that Jesus did not resurrect. What is different is that this book tackles the premise from a forensic perspective. Also dif...
Well, Reichs seems to have become the master of incomplete, abbreviated sentences. The writing has become increasingly staccato, which again, I don't enjoy because it pulls me out of the story. And frankly, it gets really tiring to read.As for the story, well my mother had to quit halfway through be...
Classic Kathy Reichs. I don't know why I was distracted from her books for over a year. This one is rapidly drawing me in...even with others pulling my attention. This one, because of multiple layers of detail needs to be read slower than some of the others I have read by her otherwise the reader ge...
