Publisher's Summary

The evidence is irrefutable: In 16 New York Times best sellers over the course of as many years, Kathy Reichs has proven herself "a genius at building suspense" (New York Daily News). In forensic anthropologist Temperance Brennan, Reichs has created a detective fiction heroine who's brilliant to the bone. "Every minute in the morgue with Tempe is golden," says The New York Times Book Review. In the acclaimed author's thrilling new novel, Brennan is at the top of her game in a battle of wits against the most monstrous adversary she has ever encountered.
Unexpectedly called in to the Charlotte PD's Cold Case Unit, Dr. Temperance Brennan wonders why she's been asked to meet with a homicide cop who's a long way from his own jurisdiction. The shocking answer: Two child murders, separated by thousands of miles, have one thing in common - the killer. Years ago, Anique Pomerleau kidnapped and murdered a string of girls in Canada, then narrowly eluded capture. It was a devastating defeat for her pursuers, Brennan and police detective Andrew Ryan. Now, as if summoned from their nightmares, Pomerleau has resurfaced in the United States, linked to victims in Vermont and North Carolina. When another child is snatched, the reign of terror promises to continue - unless Brennan can rise to the challenge and make good on her second chance to stop a psychopath.
But Brennan will have to draw her bitter ex-partner out of exile, keep the local police and feds from one another's throats, and face more than just her own demons as she stalks the deadliest of predators into the darkest depths of madness.
In Bones Never Lie, Kathy Reichs never fails to satisfy readers looking for psychological suspense that's more than skin-deep.

This is book 17 in the Temperance Brennan Series

Another great book in the series. I like Katherine Borowitz performance of this book. The first-person-diary style of this book may not be for everyone but I like it.

The only bad about this book is that it is not listed as part of the Temperance Brennan series. Maybe it is because Kathy Reichs changed publishers.

Series like this must make a lot of money for Amazon and Audible, you would think they would make an easy way to subscribe to (or sign-up for alerts for) a series. I have spent over $200 on this series and over one thousand dollars on the other series I enjoy yet I need to log-in several times per month to manually check for new books.

If you are a fan of the Temperance Brennan series, I hope I am glad you managed to find this because it is definitely worth the listen.

Never Reaches It's Potential

The raw material was here for a great book. The psychology of the criminals and the crimes worked; there was a nasty cop who derided the efforts of Tempe, Ryan, and Skinny Slidell who gets his due in the end. So why did I end up giving it only three stars? 1) Way too much superfluous detail which did nothing to move the story forward. 2) The lack of astute police work; Tempe seemingly has developed a penchant for stream of consciousness hypothetical questions to which she expects answers. For instance a key piece of information as to how a dead woman's DNA was transferred to a victim's was painfully obvious to anyone actually listening to the audiobook. Tempe had in fact; seen exactly where it came from; yet three hours of the audiobook went by before she managed to regain her memory in the form of a Eureka moment. Then there was the her constant need to have everyone telling her anything to reiterate painfully obvious points that a ten year old should have been able to grasp; never mind an experienced anthropologist and Medical Examiner.
The Bones series has always been; in the words of Forrest Gump, a box of chocolates; you never know what you're gonna get. For me this one possessed the potential to be the best; too bad that it didn't.
