Read in January, 2010

Two Hydro-Quebec utility workers discover decomposing & dismembered human remains and Temperance Brennan's analysis uncovers a tenuous link to another old disappearance. Set in Montreal, Deja Dead introduces tactiturn & uncooperative homicide detective Luc Claudel, openly contemptuous of Tempe's forensic science, dismissing her findings. This tense dance continues throughout the book, as a series of bodies & body parts surface. I enjoyed the book, learned about cadaver dogs & dismemberment techniques, but the dialog seemed awkward, especially conversations with Tempe's friend, Gabby, trying to hard for a sense of casual comraderie that didn't quite make it.
