The forensic detail is ever fascinating and entirely accessible, the case is darkly addictive and Tempe herself is going through a sea change in both a physical and mental sense which adds huge emotional levels to the narrative.
Kathy Reichs is of course a brilliant plotter and a beautiful writer, twisting and turning events in ...more
