“Fans of TV’s CSI: Crime Scene Investigation should be in heaven” (People) stepping into the world of forensic anthropologist Dr. Temperance Brennan—she works with the dead, but she works for the living.

“Down time” is not a phrase in Tempe Brennan’s vocabulary. A string of disturbing cases has put her vacation plans on hold; instead, she heads to the lab to analyze charred remains from a suspicious fire, and a mysterious black residue from a small plane crash. But most troubling of all are the bones. Even more disturbing is the fact that bones turns up on a family picnic in North Carolina—but are they animal or human? X-rays and DNA may link the crimes, but they can’t reveal who is closing in on Tempe and her family. And how far they will go to keep her from uncovering the truth?

I enjoyed the book however I was disappointed that the only choice was the abridged version. You lose a lot of background in the shorter book

At only 5 hours, it's somewhat too short to really sink your teeth into. I've not picked up any of the other books in the series, but I wouldn't be adverse to it in the future. It's episodic enough that you won't miss anything by jumping into the middle. Watch out for the accents, though: Michele Pawk does justice to the southern drawl of the region, and it can be jarring at first.

Not Reichs' best, but still interesting. Hope she hasn't sacrificed her literature for the television series!

I really have enjoyed her books. Having lived near Charlotte it is always fun to hear of streets and sites I have visited. She has a nice blend of the story, the facts, and little extras that make it great.

I really love Temperance Brennan. She has nothing to hide and is intelligent beyond normal means. I enjoyed the story and love the characters. I can't wait to read another one.

Good book. I'm much more partial to unabridged versions, however, and I missed the usual detailed Brennan science. I'll read another of Reichs books--anytime I can.

Good listening. I really enjoyed Bare Bones. Kathy Reich's characters are very believeable and enjoyable. A very good way to spend a drive.
