Authors: Kathy Reichs

Death Du Jour

“Fans of TV’s
CSI: Crime Scene Investigation
should be in heaven” (
People
) stepping into the world of forensic anthropologist Dr. Temperance Brennan, star of Kathy Reichs’ electrifyingly authentic bestsellers.

Using her expertise to detect a murderous pattern is all in a day’s work.

In the bitter cold of a Montreal winter, Tempe Brennan is digging for a corpse buried more than a century ago. But it’s a chain of contemporary deaths and disappearances that has seized her attention—and she alone is ideally placed to make a chilling connection among the seemingly unrelated events. At the crime scene, at the morgue, and in the lab, Tempe probes a mystery that sweeps from a deadly Quebec fire to startling discoveries in the Carolinas, and culminates in Montreal with a terrifying showdown—a nerve-shattering test of her affinities for both science and survival.

“ATMOSPHERIC, SUSPENSEFULLY PACED. . . . A DELECTABLE TALE OF CORPUS DELICTI . . . BONE-CHILLING PRIME CRIME.”
—People

“BRENNAN IS A WINNER, AND SO IS REICHS.”
—Daily News
(New York)

Includes an excerpt from
Bones to Ashes—
