Publisher's Summary

Nine-year-old Emily Anne Toussaint is shot dead on a Montreal street. A North Carolina teenager disappears from her home and parts of what may be her skeleton are found hundreds of miles away. For Dr. Temperance Brennan, a forensic anthropologist in both Montreal and North Carolina, the deaths kindle deep emotions that propel her on a harrowing journey into the world of outlaw motorcycle gangs. As a scientist, Tempe should remain dispassionate. As a caring individual, she yearns to take the killers off the streets. With her boss Peter LaManche in the hospital, and her friend Andrew Ryan disturbingly unavailable, Tempe begins a periolous investigation into a culture where evil often wears masks.
Don't miss any of Tempe Brennan's investigations.

A bit hard to follow

A decent mystery, but filled with too-neat coincidences and mysterious motivations. I have not read others in this series and this one did not make me particularly eager to do so.
The listless reader did nothing to bring the story to life. I think there's some wry humor there, but it doesn't come through in the reading. The French names, pronounced oh-so-correctly by the reader, were hard to understand in an audio version and sometimes made the story hard to follow.
