BONES TO ASHES
Dr. Temperance Brennan hones her fascinating anthropological skills in Canada as Reichs creatively links a
30-year-old mysterious disappearance
to the present-day discovery of a
skeleton. Intriguing twists send this thriller spiraling toward a surprising conclusion.
Her examination of the skeleton reminds her of childhood Canadian friends who mysteriously disappeared from their summer vacation home in South Carolina. Tempe tries to solve the decades-old mystery of her friends' disappearance but soon realizes that her life may be in danger if she does. (Scribner, Aug., 320 pp., $25.95)
