Publisher's Summary

Kathy Reichs, number-one New York Times best-selling author and producer of the Fox hit series Bones, is at her brilliant best in a riveting novel featuring forensic anthropologist Tempe Brennan - a story of infanticide, murder, and corruption set in the high-stakes, high-danger world of diamond mining.
Temperance Brennan has been asked to examine the corpses of three dead babies in Montreal. It’s a difficult assignment, complicated further by the fact that her long-time flame Detective Ryan is investigating the infants’ mother, a former (and possibly current) prostitute. When the woman flees to Edmonton, the investigation is joined by Royal Canadian Mounted Police sergeant with whom Tempe had an ill-advised fling over a decade earlier. The dissonant team heads to remotest Yellowknife - mining country - to pursue an ever more sinister trail.
With the Fox series Bones in its seventh season and her popularity at its broadest ever, Kathy Reichs reaches new heights in storytelling and suspense-building. Bones Are Forever shimmers with sexual tension, crackling dialogue, and the thrilling twists Reichs delivers so well.

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

I don't think it could be

Has Bones Are Forever turned you off from other books in this genre?

No but I won't be downloading anymore from this author

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Linda Emond?

I don't think it was so much the narrator as the script she was given

Any additional comments?

Too much technical information, too many characters, hard to keep them straight in-between all the teaching. Listened all the way thinking it would have to get better but never did.

Temperance Brennan lives up to my expectations

Where does Bones Are Forever rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I love Kathy Reichs so this book is right up there among my favorites. It is my first audiobook of her stories and I will be back for more.

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

Her plots are always intriguing and exciting. This one didn't grab me like some have but it was very good.

What about Linda Emond’s performance did you like?

Yes I liked her performance. This was my first book read by her. So far my favorite is Davina Porter but not everyone must be a master or mistress of complex dialogs. Ms. Emond was very good.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

No. It held my interest and I will be listening to it again.
