Temperance Brennan series
22 works, 18 primary works
Dr. Temperance "Tempe" Brennan is a forensic anthropologist, who investigates human remains at crime scenes where the flesh is too degraded for a coroner to obtain evidence (victims of arson, mutilation, advanced decomposition, etc.). Tempe is first introduced in Déjà Dead. She is a native of the Carolinas and one of only fifty board-certified forensic anthropologists in North America.
