Publisher's Summary

Dr Temperance Brennan spends her life working amongst the decomposed, the mutilated and the skeletal. So the two-days-dead body she is called to examine holds little to surprise her. Until she discovers that the man is John Lowery, an ex-soldier who was apparently killed in Vietnam in 1968. So who is buried in Lowery's grave.
The case takes Tempe to the heart of the American military, where she must examine the remains of anyone who may have had a connection to the drowned man. It's a harrowing task, but it pays off when she finds Lowery's dog tags amongst the bones of a long-dead soldier.
As Tempe unravels the tangled threads of the soldiers' lives and deaths, she realises there are some who would rather the past stayed dead and buried. And when she proves difficult to frighten, they turn their attention to the one person she would give her life to protect.

A great story

A great story once again. Mortal Remains aka Spider Bones is a brilliant addition to the Tempe Brennan series by Kathy Reichs. This time Tempe is in Hawaii with her sometime beau Andrew Ryan, her daughter Katie and Ryan's drug addict daughter Lily. She investigates the remains of a dead soldier, only John Lowry died in 1968, so how can a person die twice. Lorelei King gives another good performance of the audio book.

Good audio book.

This story falls into the usual good standard you would expect from Kathy Reichs. And to my mind you can't get much better narration wise than Lorelei King.
