Following her most successful book to date, Kathy Reichs -- international number one bestselling author, forensic anthropologist, and producer of the Fox television hit Bones -- returns to Charlotte, North Carolina, where Temperance Brennan encounters a deadly mix of voodoo, Santería, and devil worship in her quest to identify two young victims.In a house under renovation, a plumber uncovers a cellar no one knew about, and makes a rather grisly discovery -- a decapitated chicken, animal bones, and cauldrons containing beads, feathers, and other relics of religious ceremonies. In the center of the shrine, there is the skull of a teenage girl. Meanwhile, on a nearby lakeshore, the headless body of a teenage boy is found by a man walking his dog.Nothing is clear -- neither when the deaths occurred, nor where. Was the skull brought to the cellar or was the girl murdered there? Why is the boy's body remarkably well preserved? Led by a preacher turned politician, citizen vigilantes blame devil worshippers and Wiccans. They begin a witch hunt, intent on seeking revenge.Forensic anthropologist Temperance Brennan -- "five-five, feisty, and forty-plus" -- is called in to investigate, and a complex and gripping tale unfolds in this, Kathy Reichs's eleventh taut, always surprising, scientifically fascinating mystery.With a popular series on Fox -- now in its third season and in full syndication -- Kathy Reichs has established herself as the dominant talent in forensic mystery writing. Devil Bones features Reichs's signature blend of forensic descriptions that "chill to the bone" (Entertainment Weekly) and the surprising plot twists that have made her books phenomenal bestsellers in the United States and around the world.

4.0 Devil Bones - Kathy Reichs
Wow. Good plot twists, character twists and a shining light of (possible) hope at the end of the tunnel. Can't wait for the next book.However, I wish Reichs focused more on the resolution of Tempe's love life. I'm not a huge fan of the daughter (whose name escapes me at this moment) but she was a go...

4.0 Devil Bones
I have zero interest in things Voodoo and the like. So, when I started reading Devil Bones, I was thinking that I would give it one sitting and see where it went. All the while, I thought I would be putting it down due to the subject matter. I was truly surprised at how well Ms. Reichs handled th...

3.0 Devil Bones
Eh, not the best Bones book. I guess everyone has to do a Voodoo/Santeria themed book. I do like Brennan, though, as always.

3.0 Devil Bones: A Novel (Temperance Brennan Novels)
This is the eleventh book in the Tempe Brennan series, so at this point, the books, aren't necessarily predictable, but the writing style and storylines are. I still enjoyed the book and will continue on with the series, but at this time, Tempe Brennan is as comfortable as an old bathrobe. Final GR ...

I'm always aware that Reich is working with a formula, but it was really obvious with this one. Still it got me through a miserable day with a cold.
