Publisher's Summary

Forensic anthropologist Temperance Brennan returns in a chilling original short story from number-one New York Times best-selling author Kathy Reichs. In the prequel to Reichs’s upcoming thriller Bones Never Lie, Tempe takes a much-needed vacation - but murder follows wherever she goes.
Although a trip to Florida is supposed to be about rest and relaxation, there’s no such thing as a day off for Dr. Temperance Brennan. She has come to visit her friend, a dedicated ornithologist who’s researching the threat that intrusive Burmese pythons pose to indigenous bird species in the Everglades. While sorting through the stomach of an eighteen-foot specimen, they make a disturbing discovery: bones that are unmistakably human. And when Tempe spots the telltale signs of murder by a very different kind of predator, she’s drawn into a case with its roots in the darkest depths of the swamp.

If you could sum up Swamp Bones: A Novella in three words, what would they be?

suspenseful well written

What other book might you compare Swamp Bones: A Novella to and why?

it is hard to compare another book to this story but maybe Reichs "Break No Bones" is close.

Any additional comments?

this was a great read. I really liked the humor in this one..

Florida Agrees With Tempe

Tempe Brennan heads to the Everglades and is drafted into service when human bones are found inside a dead python. This is a short novella; less than three hours and it keeps the story moving quickly; unlike many of the Bones series works which become mired in detail and make interest difficult to maintain. The events which lead up to the climatic scene strain credulity to some extent but so do a great many selections in this genre. Given the minimal cost of this audiobook it's an excellent choice.
