A riveting new Temperance Brennan forensic thriller from Kathy Reichs, the internationally acclaimed forensic anthropologist and "New York Times" bestselling author...Temperance Brennan, forensic anthropologist for both North Carolina and Quebec, has come from Charlotte to Montreal during the bleak days of December to testify as an expert witness at a murder trial. She should be going over her notes, but instead she's digging in the basement of a pizza parlor. Not fun. Freezing cold. Crawling rats. And now, the skeletonized remains of three young women. How did they get there? When did they die?Homicide detective Luc Claudel, never Tempe's greatest fan, believes the bones are historic. Not his case, not his concern. The pizza parlor owner found nineteenth-century buttons in the cellar with the skeletons. Claudel takes them as an indicator of the bones' antiquity. But something doesn't make sense. Tempe examines the bones in her lab and establishes approximate age with Carbon 14. Further study of tooth enamel tells her where the women were born. If she's right, Claudel has three recent murders on his hands. Definitely his case.Detective Andrew Ryan, meanwhile, is acting mysteriously. What are those private phone calls he takes in the other room, and why does he suddenly disappear just when Tempe is beginning to hope he might be a permanent part of her life? Looks like more lonely nights for Tempe and Birdie, her cat.As Tempe searches for answers in both her personal and professional lives, she finds herself drawn deep into a web of evil from which there may be no escape. Women have disappeared, never to return....Tempe may be next.With its powerful mix ofnail-biting suspense and cutting-edge forensic science, "Monday Mourning" is the best yet from this superbly gifted, megastar author who, as "New York Newsday" says, is "the real thing."

This has been my favorite by far of this series. If it wasn't for the TSTL moment at the end (and really, I've come to expect nothing less) and all the mooning about Ryan, I'd probably rate it 5 stars. An excellent plot in this one, three skeletons of young women found in the basement of a pizzeri...

Since I have found myself losing interest in Kathy Reichs novels and common storylines, I thought that I should write this review as I was actually reading the novel. I normally complete her books in three sittings so the review should be "fresh". For clarification, I am reading the Tempe Brennan ...
Great book! I was able to learn about Carbon dating and tooth enamel geolocation thingy. Anyway, the plot was great. I finished it in a few hours with couple hours for breaks. I got hooked cos I really wanted to know who done it and why and how. Brilliant Kathy Reichs.
One of many Kathy Reichs books from a charity shop that I thought I'd try. First thing to note is it is nothing like the "Bones" TV Show. The characters are different, the setting is different - even the country is different!On to the story ...You can read the blurb, and that gives you the overview ...
