Publisher's Summary

Another day. Another death. Death du Jour. My God, how many such days would there be? On a bitterly cold march night in Montreal, forensic anthropologist Dr Temperance Brennan is exhuming the remains of a nun proposed for sainthood in the grounds of an old church. Just hours later, Tempe is called to the scene of a horrific arson. A young family has perished, and there seems to be no witness, no motive, and no explanation. From the charred remains of the inferno, to a trail of sinister cult activity and a terrifying showdown during an ice storm, Tempe faces a nerve-shattering test of both her forensic expertise and her instinct for survival.

Bones, bones and more bones!

Death Du Jour is the brilliant second novel, featuring Tempe Brennan, written by Kathy Reichs. Tempe's sister Harriet is involved in a life changing course which may be more than it seems. Tempe investigates a cult after the bodies of women and children linked to the cult, are discovered. Bonnie Hurren delivers a good performance.

Another good book from Kathy Reichs. The storyline was very creative, full of suspense and detail and very well read.

A brilliant story with some excellent twists, fabulously performed

I listened to this story as an audiobook, and Bonnie Hurren narrated and performed the story beautifully, really bringing both it and the characters to life. Full of mystery, cults, murder, missing people, nutty sisters, a saint and a sprinkling of romance, this is a brilliant story, with some excellent twists. I highly recommend it to mystery lovers, as well as Reichs fans.

Great Book loved the story

I absolutely loved this book, the only thing that I can complain about is the narrator she sounded quite robotic however the story is just so good it soon becomes tolerable.

Storyline ok...narration terrible...writing style tedious

Really disappointing. The actual plot is reasonable and the science interesting. However the narration was appalling. I could not begin to guess what accents she was attempting, and she gave many of the female parts a high screeching tone. Very long wondered. How how many coincidences can you have in a plot before it becomes untenable?

Great!

My first book in the series. This is so much better than the tv series.
Looking forward to hearing more.
