it was amazing
Read in September, 2012

Overall I found this quite an enjoyable read.

I only found one formatting error: p. 154, "You acquainted with Tyne?' - single quote is incorrect.

The whole novel felt a little short. I have read all of the Temperance Brennan novels (I own them), but this one seemed to end too soon.
It was a little predictable:
- Andrew and Tempe would they get along or not?
- Andrew's daughter surfaces again;

I found there to be a few too many characters. I got a little confused; perhaps my old age.

I did love the whole "mining" aspect of the novel. Perhaps this could have been expanded.

Introducing a past "love" was interesting, but I thought he could have been portrayed as more sympathetic (just came across as mostly cross-like). Tempe would not have gone for him as portrayed.

As always, this novel was well-written. The next novel needs to be spiced up a little; the characters need to be taken to the next level.

Well done!
