Book Review: Bones Never Lie

What says:

Temperance “Tempe” Brennan faces down the demons of her past in the seventeenth thriller in Kathy Reichs’s phenomenally successful Bones series.

Unexpectedly called into the Charlotte PD’s Cold Case Unit, Dr. Temperance Brennan wonders why she’s been asked to meet with a homicide cop who’s a long way from his own jurisdiction. The shocking answer: Two child murders, separated by thousands of miles, have one thing in common—the killer. Years ago, Anique Pomerleau kidnapped and murdered a string of girls in Canada, then narrowly eluded capture. It was a devastating defeat for her pursuers, Brennan and police detective Andrew Ryan. Now, as if summoned from their nightmares, Pomerleau has resurfaced in the United States, linked to victims in Vermont and North Carolina. When another child is snatched, the reign of terror promises to continue—unless Brennan can rise to the challenge and make good on her second chance to stop a psychopath.

But Brennan will have to draw her bitter ex-partner out of exile, keep the local police and feds from one another’s throats, and face more than just her own demons as she stalks the deadliest of predators into the darkest depths of madness.

In Bones Never Lie, Kathy Reichs never fails to satisfy readers looking for psychological suspense that’s more than skin-deep.

What I say: Kathy Reichs is one of the first author’s I dived into as an adult reader. After the effects of not wanting to read anything after University wore off my mom got me a few of her books and we’ve shared a love affair for the books by the same author as the TV series “Bones” ever since. Her newest book doesn’t disappoint. It has all my favourite characters and even if you were new to her books you could figure out what was happening. I will say the ending is a shocker and Reichs should definitely have spent more than a few pages on it! That was the only upsetting part. Otherwise, I give it 2 Bones (Thumbs) Up!
