Publisher's Summary

Temperance Brennan hears the news on her car radio. An Air TransSouth flight has gone down in the mountains of western North Carolina, taking with it 88 passengers and crew. As a forensic anthropologist and a member of the regional DMORT team, Tempe rushes to the scene to assist in body recovery and identification. She finds a field of carnage: torsos in trees, limbs strewn among bursting suitcases and smoldering debris. Many of the dead are members of a university soccer team. Is Tempe's daughter, Katy, among them?
Frantic with worry, Tempe joins colleagues from the FBI, the NTSB, and other agencies to search for explanations. Was the plane brought down by a bomb or simple mechanical failure? And what about the prisoner on the plane who was being extradited to Canada? Did someone want him silenced forever? And why are certain people eager to stop Tempe's investigation? Is she learning too much? Coming too close?
With help from Montreal detective Andrew Ryan - and from a very special dog named Boyd - Tempe uncovers a shocking, multilayered tale of deceit and depravity.

Highly Recommend

I have not seen the series "Bones" but I just may have to turn on the TV and take a peek at this new series based on the life of this author after listening to this book. I love it! 2 mysterys in one that really held my interest. I looked forward to the time I could spend with my iPod and headphones tuned into this book, which is generally my gauge for how good a book is. From start to finish...never a dull moment. It's not very often that I would choose an abridged version of a book, but without a choice I guess I don't know what I missed. Flowed well and held my interest for every moment.
