CRIME THRILLER REVIEW: Temperance Brennan 18: Speaking in Bones - Kathy Reichs

Release Date: 30/07/15
Publisher:  William Heinemann


The compelling new Dr Temperance Brennan novel from the world-class forensic anthropologist and Number 1 bestselling author Kathy Reichs.

When forensic anthropologist Dr Tempe Brennan is approached by amateur detective Hazel ‘Lucky’ Strike, at first she is inclined to dismiss the woman’s claims that she’s matched a previously unidentified set of remains with a name.

But as the words of a terrified young woman echo round her office from an audio recorder found near where the bones were discovered, something about the story won’t let Tempe go.

As Tempe investigates further she finds herself involved in a case more complicated and horrifying than she could ever have imagined.


The latest book from Kathy and to be honest I have to admit to being a bit of a Brennan addict, so much so that even after 17 other books I’m at the forefront to get my hands on this title. The reason that its not been reviewed prior to this is that I always like to keep a cracking book in my TBR pile for when I get desperate and need something to pick me up.

Like the other books in the series, the reader is in for a well written plot, with some great characters and a twist or two to get you hooked right from the get go. As usual with Kathy, it’s a one more chapter type of book and you’ll end up seeing the sun poking its head through the curtains. Great fun and as usual a wonderful read.
