Publisher's Summary

It's the second-to-last day of archaeological field school. The students are working on a prehistoric gravesite on Dewees, a barrier island north of Charleston, South Carolina, when a much more recent burial is uncovered. The skeleton is articulated, the bone fresh, and the vertebrae still connected by soft-tissue. It's a case forensic anthropologist Temperance Brennan has to take. But her investigations soon have her in too deep - her entire view of humanity is challenged, and the further she probes, the more she seems to be putting herself in danger.


What the Critics Say

"Reichs's down-to-earth heroine is an appealing creation, who deftly juggles personal problems with professional challenges." (Publishers Weekly)
"Readers who enjoy Patricia Cornwell's mysteries will appreciate the forensic detail here, and more character-oriented readers will respond to Reichs' likable and well-developed cast, from the local sheriff to Tempe herself, a dedicated woman who feels compelled to provide justice for those who can no longer speak for themselves." (Booklist)

Terrible Narration

I was looking forward to this book as I had heard good reports of the author. Unfortunately the book is let down by its plodding and inappropriate narration, that sounds like the book is being read for an audience of kindergarten children. The emotions expressed in the narrator in the reading, do not match the events or emotions in the book. It really spoiled the experience for me.
