A cold case gone suddenly hot is the foundation of megastar Reichs’ new Temperance Brennan thriller. For both Tempe and Det. Andrew Ryan, the case of Anique Pomerleau burns as “the one who got away.” In addition to the puzzling mystery, Reichs also delves into the devastation the loss of a child can wreak. Reichs is at the top of her game!

It seems that serial killer Anique Pomerleau, who escaped justice years ago in Canada, has resurfaced and been killing teenage girls in the U.S. — including in forensic anthropologist Dr. Temperance Brennan’s own backyard of North Carolina. The powers-that-be want Tempe to find her former lover Det. Andrew Ryan and bring him in as a consultant. The problem? Ryan has dropped off the grid after the death of his daughter. Now, Tempe must both find Ryan and figure out the puzzling clues in this deadly case where nothing is quite what it seems. (BANTAM, Oct., 336 pp., $27.00)
