Image of Bones to Ashes: A Novel (Temperance Brennan Novels)

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.

Forensic anthropologist Tempe is helping Canadian police investigate the disappearance of three young women and the possible murders of three others when a detective asks her to look at a weathered human skeleton to see if she can determine identity and cause of death.

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)
