Another great book in the series. I like Katherine Borowitz performance of this book. The first-person-diary style of this book may not be for everyone but I like it.
The only bad about this book is that it is not listed as part of the Temperance Brennan series. Maybe it is because Kathy Reichs changed publishers.
Series like this must make a lot of money for Amazon and Audible, you would think they would make an easy way to subscribe to (or sign-up for alerts for) a series. I have spent over $200 on this series and over one thousand dollars on the other series I enjoy yet I need to log-in several times per month to manually check for new books.
If you are a fan of the Temperance Brennan series, I hope I am glad you managed to find this because it is definitely worth the listen.

The raw material was here for a great book. The psychology of the criminals and the crimes worked; there was a nasty cop who derided the efforts of Tempe, Ryan, and Skinny Slidell who gets his due in the end. So why did I end up giving it only three stars? 1) Way too much superfluous detail which did nothing to move the story forward. 2) The lack of astute police work; Tempe seemingly has developed a penchant for stream of consciousness hypothetical questions to which she expects answers. For instance a key piece of information as to how a dead woman's DNA was transferred to a victim's was painfully obvious to anyone actually listening to the audiobook. Tempe had in fact; seen exactly where it came from; yet three hours of the audiobook went by before she managed to regain her memory in the form of a Eureka moment. Then there was the her constant need to have everyone telling her anything to reiterate painfully obvious points that a ten year old should have been able to grasp; never mind an experienced anthropologist and Medical Examiner.
The Bones series has always been; in the words of Forrest Gump, a box of chocolates; you never know what you're gonna get. For me this one possessed the potential to be the best; too bad that it didn't.
