BONES OF THE LOST
Dr. Temperance Brennan spends a lot of time on the road, but she really gets her frequent-flyer miles in this book. Set mainly in Charlotte, N.C., the action takes an interesting turn as Tempe is sent to Afghanistan on a case. Reichs cuts Tempe no slack as almost all the relationships in her life are hitting critical mass. The ugly world of trafficking is on display and dragging Tempe into its dark underbelly.
