An 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.
Written with the riveting authenticity that only world-class forensic anthropologist Kathy Reichs can provide, Fatal Voyage pairs witty, elegant prose with pulse-pounding storytelling in a tour de force worthy of crime writing's new superstar.

An early novel in the Temperance Brennan series
Author Kathy Reichs' writes semi-autobiographical novels about the exploits of forensic anthropologist Temperance Brennan. While Reichs is clearly not as heroic as Temperance Brennan, their careers and educational backgrounds are identical down to their job titles and the places they lived and worked as forensic anthropologists. FATAL VOYAGE is about a plane crash in the mountains of Swain County, NC. The novel was well on its way to earning 5 stars until near the end when the author decided to throw in a few chapters about a male cult of cannibals who had been operating in the area for almost 100 years. This series consists of 18 novels, 2 novellas, and one short story. The narration of FATAL VOYAGE is barely adequate.

Annoying narrator with a good story
Is there anything you would change about this book?
Kathy Reichs is best when she describes the science but her general writing can be cliched and trite. Too many hyperbolic similes and exaggerated descriptions "loud enough to be heard in Buenos Aires". Really? Brennan is a scientist and such a description is just stupic.
Would you ever listen to anything by Kathy Reichs again?
Would you be willing to try another one of Kate Harper’s performances?
NO! At many points she screeches and whines making me dislike the characters.

Not the best of CR novels...
...but very far from bad. Read beautifully and thoroughly entertaining. I always enjoy these books but I guessed the main plot very early.
