Another lovely advanced reader's copy from the LibraryThing Early Reviewers group. I really love this series so let my bias show.
I do NOT love the TV Show Bones so more bias.
The basic premise of this series is Tempe Brennan is a Forensic Anthropologist who works out of both Charlotte, NC and Montreal, Canada. Her on again off again beau is a detective ,Andrew Ryan, who is currently on again and proposing. Brennan has some cold feet going on during the course of this novel.
A websleuth, Hazel Strike aka Lucky, comes to Brennan with some evidence that some unidentified bones might belong to a Cora Teague. Probably half out of interest, half out of avoiding Ryan and his proposal, Tempe starts investigating.
What comes out of this is actually an interesting case with many twists and turns. If you have ever read Kathy Reichs' books, you know she ends each and every chapter with a cliffhanger. Just enough to make you say "One more chapter" and before you know it, it's 2AM and you have to get up for work in 3 hours...... Sorry...digressing.
Speaking in Bones definitely moved the Brennan/Ryan plot along and picked up an interesting case to boot. Another excellent addition to the series.
