Number One New York Times bestselling author Kathy Reichs returns with her nineteenth riveting novel featuring forensic anthropologist Temperance Brennan, who must use all her tradecraft to discover the identity of a faceless corpse, its connection to a decade-old missing child case, and why the dead man had her phone number.

***
It's sweltering in Charlotte, North Carolina, and Temperance Brennan, still recovering from neurosurgery following an aneurysm, is battling nightmares, migraines, and what she thinks might be hallucinations when she receives a series of mysterious text messages, each containing a new picture of a corpse that is missing its face and hands. Immediately, she's anxious to know who the dead man is, and why the images were sent to her.

An identified corpse soon turns up, only partly answering her questions.

To win answers to the others, including the man's identity, she must go rogue. With help from a number of law enforcement associates including her Montreal beau Andrew Ryan and the always-ready-with-a-smart-quip, ex-homicide investigator Skinny Slidell, and utilizing new cutting-edge forensic methods, Tempe draws closer to the astonishing truth.

But the more she uncovers, the darker and more twisted the picture becomes ...

Praise for A Conspiracy of Bones and Kathy Reichs:

'A Conspiracy of Bones shows off Kathy Reichs' dazzling new level of plotting mastery. A thrilling read from one of my favorite writers' KARIN SLAUGHTER, #1 internationally bestselling author of The Last Widow and The Good Daughter

'One of the absolute best thrillers of the year! Both Temperance Brennan and Kathy Reichs are at the top of their games in this brilliant rollercoaster of a tale. I can't recall when this many twists have been so masterfully woven into a novel. But, of course, it's not all about plot. The characters, too-good, bad and in between-come breathtakingly alive with heart-gripping effect. A great series has just gotten greater' JEFFERY DEAVER, #1 internationally bestseller author of The Bone Collector and The Never Game

'Don't miss this one! The corpse is ghastly. The investigation is intense. So many pulse-pounding twists and surprises-it kept me guessing till the end!' R.L. STINE, bestselling author Goosebumps and Fear Street

'Tempe Brennan is back, dealing with health issues, career setbacks, and the nagging-and driving-fear of inadequacy that is the flipside of her talent. Reich's fast-paced, tightly-constructed, and very contemporary story dives underground here, both literally and virtually, as she follows the thinnest of threads deeper and deeper into a shocking conspiracy. You will find it hard to put down' MARK BOWDEN, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Last Stone and Black Hawk Down

'No face, no hands, and a ton of breathtaking questions. I dare you to figure out all the red herrings. So utterly good! This is Kathy Reichs doing what she does best: sorting through the bones until the shocking end' BRAD MELTZER, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Escape Artist

'Kathy Reichs writes smart-no, make that brilliant-mysteries that are as realistic as non-fiction and as fast-paced as the best thrillers about Jack Reacher or Alex Cross' JAMES PATTERSON

'
Nobody does forensics thrillers like Kathy Reichs. She's the real deal' DAVID BALDACCI

'Kathy Reichs continues to be one of the most distinctive and talented writers in the genre. Her legions of readers worldwide will agree with me when I declare that the more books she writes, the more enthusiastic fans she'll garner' SANDRA BROWN

'Each book in Kathy Reichs's fantastic Temperance Brennan series is better than the last. They're filled with riveting twists andturns. No matter how many novels she writes, I just can't get enough!' LISA SCOTTOLINE
