The Bone Code [9781471188893]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review

'I await the next Kathy Reichs' thriller with the same anticipation I have for the new Lee Child or Patricia Cornwell' JAMES PATTERSON

'I couldn't stop turning the pages' TESS GERRITSEN

NUMBER ONE NEW YORK TIMES bestselling author KATHY REICHS returns with her next edge-of-your seat thriller featuring forensic anthropologist Temperance Brennan.

A storm has hit South Carolina, dredging up crimes of the past.

En route to Isle of Palms, a barrier island off the South Carolina coast, forensic anthropologist Temperance Brennan receives a call from the Charleston coroner. During the storm, a medical waste container has washed up on the beach. Inside are two decomposed bodies wrapped in plastic sheeting and bound with electrical wire. Chillingly, Tempe recognizes many details as identical to those of an unsolved case she handled in Quebec fifteen earlier. With a growing sense of foreboding, she flies to Montreal to gather evidence and convince her boss Pierre LaManch to reopen the cold case. She also seeks the advice-and comfort-of her longtime beau Andrew Ryan.

Meanwhile, a storm of a different type gathers force in South Carolina. The citizens of Charleston are struck by capnocytophaga, a bacterium that, at its worst, can eat human flesh. Thousands panic and test themselves for a rare genetic mutation that may have rendered them vulnerable.

Shockingly, Tempe eventually deduces not only that the victims in both grisly murder cases are related, but that the murders and the disease outbreak also have a common cause . . .

PRAISE FOR KATHY REICHS

'I await the next Kathy Reichs' thriller with the same anticipation I have for the new Lee Child or Patricia Cornwell. The Bone Code over-achieves. Temperance Brennan uses all her skills as a forensic anthropologist to solve a murder mystery story that races across America at the speed of fright' JAMES PATTERSON, Sunday Times bestselling author of NYPD Red: 6

'Kathy Reichs is expert at making science both scary and thrilling, and she's in top form in The Bone Code. The story moves at such a relentless pace I couldn't stop turning the pages' TESS GERRITSEN, New York Times bestselling author of Choose Me

'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

'Every minute in the morgue with Tempe is golden' THE NEW YORK TIMES BOOK REVIEW
