Don’t miss this “whopper” (Publishers Weekly) of a thriller from #1 New York Times bestselling author Kathy Reichs in her “cleverly plotted” (The New York Times) Temperance Brennan series, the inspiration for the hit FOX television series Bones.

John Lowery was declared dead in 1968—the victim of a Huey crash in Vietnam, his body buried long ago in North Carolina. Four decades later, Temperance Brennan is called to the scene of a drowning in Hemmingford, Quebec. The victim appears to have died while in the midst of a bizarre sexual practice. The corpse is later identified as John Lowery. But how could Lowery have died twice, and how did an American soldier end up in Canada?

Tempe sets off for the answer, exhuming Lowery’s grave in North Carolina and taking the remains to Hawaii for reanalysis—to the headquarters of JPAC, the US military’s Joint POW/ MIA Accounting Command, which strives to recover Americans who have died in past conflicts. In Hawaii, Tempe is joined by her colleague and ex-lover Detective Andrew Ryan (how “ex” is he?) and by her daughter, who is recovering from her own tragic loss. Soon another set of remains is located, with Lowery’s dog tags tangled among them. Three bodies—all identified as Lowery.

And then Tempe is contacted by Hadley Perry, Honolulu’s flamboyant medical examiner, who needs help identifying the remains of an adolescent boy found offshore. Was he the victim of a shark attack? Or something much more sinister?

I enjoyed this one, interesting info about the work identifying MIA and KIA

A highly convoluted plot, although well written. As this was my first Kathy Reichs novel, I was expecting a "Bones" Temperence Brennan and to my surprise it is a very different Temperence Brennan. Still a "know it all" but much more human and a realistic back story. I will now try more of her books

I'm a Kathy Reichs fan, but lately I've thought that she has lost her edge. Not any more - this is a really good book to pass the time, and not an easy guess as to the "whodunit"

Kathy Reichs writes a great story once again, and Linda Emond delivers as always. I love listening to Linda Emond, and she brings Temperance Brennan to life as no other.

I like Kathy Reichs books a lot, but this one seemed overly complicated and confusing. Worth the effort though.
