I have loved Kathy Reichs' Tempe Brennan series for years. Great character, intriguing mysteries, and interesting forensic anthropological facts. This time, however, the story fell flat. There were places in which I *gasp* skimmed! What happened to the plot? It just sort of plodded along. The few times it began to twist and turn, I found myself so entangled in medical terminology that I lost the suspense. As for Tempe... almost nothing happened to her. Well, there was the sick friend angle, but it wasn't very heartfelt. And the ex-husband, but I didn't feel much sincerity there either. Normally, I feel like I AM Tempe Brennan. In Break No Bones, I didn't even really LIKE Tempe Brennan.

I sincerely hope my favorite lady anthropologist is back with a heart pounding case and a more interesting and introspective personal life the next time around.
