really liked it
Read in February, 2009

I read murder mysteries when my brain needs a rest and I want to escape. I tend to find an author and read all of her/his work beginning with the first book published. That's what I've done with Kathy Reich with the exception of this book. I didn't have the next two in her Temperance Brennan collection, so I skipped ahead to Cross Bones.

Reading this book felt timely as Tempe heads to Israel, so it was trippy to read a story that was taking place at sites I was hearing about on the news daily. It's a good story that's based on a snippett of a story about an archelogical dig. Reich does great research, and she has clearly been to the places about which she is writing.

This was a fast, enjoyable read and though interesting, not is intricately plotted as some of her earlier pieces. Perhaps that's because her research needed to be impeccable when addressing the subject matter of the the ongoing religious conflict between Jews, Christians and Muslims.
