Now in mass market from the bestselling author, forensic anthropologist, and producer of the FOX television hit Bones—the riveting #1 New York Times bestselling Temperance Brennan novel. In a house under renovation in Charlotte, North Carolina, a plumber discovers a forgotten cellar, and some rather grisly remains—the severed head of a teenage girl, several decapitated chickens, and a couple of cauldrons containing beads, feathers, bones, and other relics of religious ceremonies. In a river not far away, an adolescent boy’s torso carved with a pentagram, is found. Are these crimes the work of Satanists and devil worshippers? Nothing is clear, neither when the deaths occurred, nor where. Was the skull brought to the cellar or was the girl murdered there? As Temperance Brennan is called in to investigate, citizen vigilantes intent on a witch hunt are led by a preacher turned politician, looking for revenge.

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