Publisher's Summary

The compelling new Dr. Temperance Brennan novel from the world-class forensic anthropologist and number-one best-selling 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 plot is as believable as an episode of Scooby Doo. The main character is self-deluded on two counts: She sees herself as tough & able to handle danger; but she relies on men to make her feel safe, save her life & ultimately solve the case. She says she loves her boyfriend, but that's a straight lie. The boyfriend is a pure flight of fancy: no man would put up with this lack of affection, humour, concern, love, romance. He must be an imaginary friend. & finally the prose - is risible. Here are 3 examples: Ramsey shook with the priest. I hit the ladies', bought a diet coke and filled my tank. My id toggled home another data byte. Almost the worst book I've ever read.
