Publisher's Summary

It's June in Montreal, and Dr. Temperance Brennan, who has left a shaky marriage back home in North Carolina to take on the challenging assignment of Director of Forensic Anthropology for the province of Quebec, looks forward to a relaxing weekend in beautiful Quebec City. First, though, she must stop at a newly uncovered burial site in the heart of the city. The remains are probably old and only of archeological interest, but Tempe must make sure they're not a case for the police.
One look at the decomposed and decapitated corpse, stored neatly in plastic bags, tells her she'll spend the weekend in the crime lab. Something about the crime scene is familiar to Tempe: the stashing of the body parts; the meticulous dismemberment. As a pattern continues to emerge, Tempe calls upon all her forensic skills, including bone, tooth/dental, and bite mark analysis and x-ray microflourescence to convince the police that the cases are related and to try to stop the killer before he strikes again.
Told with lacerating authenticity and passion, Déjà Dead is both poignant and terrifying as it hurtles toward its breathtaking conclusion. It instantly catapulted Kathy Reich into the top ranks of crime authors.

Well edited to make a fast moving story

Would you listen to Deja Dead again? Why?

I don't listen to mysteries twice


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

This was well edited to really keep the tension going. Several times it gave me the heeby jeebies!


Which character – as performed by Amy Irving – was your favorite?

Tempy, I like her determination.


Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The climax was quite thrilling and scary.


Any additional comments?

The unabridged had many bad reviews, so I decided to give this version a chance. The narrator did a great job, handled all the french words with ease. Pleasant voice and good with multiple characters. I really felt like this was a tight, thrilling mystery. Not for the squeamish as some of the autopsy details are gorey.
