Devil Bones: A Novel

Abridged Audiobook

Release Date
August 2008
6 hours 17 minutes
Kathy Reichs’s eleventh forensic mystery thriller, in which Temperance Brennan heads to Charlotte, North Carolina to solve a demonic plot involving ritual sacrifice before the town’s vengeful citizens take matters into their own hands.

In a house under renovation, a plumber uncovers a cellar no one knew about and makes a grisly discovery: a decapitated chicken, animal bones, and cauldrons containing beads, feathers, and other relics of religious ceremonies. In the center of the shrine rests the skull of a teenage girl. Meanwhile, on a nearby lakeshore, the headless body of a teenage boy is found by a man walking his dog.

Forensic anthropologist Temperance Brennan is called in to investigate, and a complex and gripping tale unfolds. Nothing is clear—neither when the deaths occurred, nor where. Was the skull brought to the cellar or was the girl murdered there? Why is the boy's body remarkably well preserved? Led by a preacher turned politician, citizen vigilantes blame devil worshippers and Wiccans, and Temperance will need all of her expertise to get to the real culprit first.

While I greatly enjoyed this book I felt that the abridged version would have been better. I am an avid fan of Ms. Reichs TV series BONES. I will read this author again.

This is one book from a popular series so clearly I'm the minority here. The main character just wasn't attractive to me so I had a hard time caring about her life and job. And there was a lot of danger and drama which make you wonder how she survives as many books as she has.

In a word TERRIBLE. I tried to get into this book but could not make it through more than 2 discs. What a disappointment from Kathy Reichs. Please, with all the good books out there, do not waste your time on this one!!!

Returned after 1 disk. Narrator is awful and I could listen to 8 more disks of her reading.
