A gripping and explosive thriller from internationally acclaimed forensic anthropologist and New York Times bestselling author Kathy Reichs, featuring Temperance Brennan and Detective Andrew Ryan on the trail of a modern murder and an ancient biblical mystery.

Examining a badly decomposed corpse is de rigueur for forensic anthropologist Temperance Brennan. But puzzling damage on the body of a shooting victim, an Orthodox Jewish man, suggests this is no ordinary Montreal murder. When a stranger slips Tempe a photograph of a skeleton unearthed at an archaeological site, Tempe uncovers chilling ties between the dead man and secrets long buried in the dust of Israel. Traveling there with Detective Andrew Ryan, Tempe plunges into an international mystery as old as Jesus, and centered on the controversial discovery of Christ's tomb. Has a mastermind lured her into an elaborate hoax? If not, Tempe may be on the brink of rewriting two thousand years of history—if she can survive the foes dead set on burying her.

A story line but the constant "he said" - "she said" started to irritate me. I

I am never disappointed. I loved it. I started reading her books only two weeks ago and can't stop.

I just thought the book was okay. It did not contain enough suspense for me. The reader did do a very good job, but I was expecting more thrill from the story.

I found this book unexciting, predictable, slow, and packed with inconsequential details. It's constant and inappropriate attempts at humor failed and only further distracted me from the story. The action takes place mostly in Israel, but I get the impression that the author's knowledge of the country comes from a half-week long sightseeing trip and a couple of photos. I learned much more about Temperance Brennan's cat and bird than I did about Israel. The narrator is very talented, but she sounds like she makes most of her money doing punchy, upbeat commercials for cute ladies' clothing. She "sells" the lines too much and sounds less like a real person and more like an actor pretending to be a real person. Overall I was extraordinarily unimpressed and recommend this audiobook to nobody.

I didn't like this book at all. Hard to follow and I couldn't finish it. I normally will finish a book whether I like it or not but this one I couldn't even finish.

If you are a fan of Kathy Reichs you will enjoy this book but if you are like me you probably won't remember what it was about. The best part for me is envisioning David Boreanz's (Booth on the TV show) face whenever the male lead, Ryan, is key to the narrative.

Loved the idea of the story line. The author spent a lot of time continually repeating information that we already had. That got a little old after a while. The ending was very disappointing. There were a lot of questions left unanswered.

Not one of her best books. Too much effort to be similar to Da Vinci Code.
