Publisher's Summary

Number one New York Times best-selling author Kathy Reichs returns with her 19th 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....

Narration Issues

The narrators mispronunciation of the words 'cul de sac?
as 'culty sac' and, (more frequently in the story) 'Hyundai' as 'Hunday' were, for me, a major irritant.

Interesting connections

I quite enjoyed this book, but became bit bogged down with all the technical jargon. The story seemed overly convoluted. Not my favourite.
