Publisher's Summary

When a plane crashes high in the mountains of North Carolina, forensic anthropologist Tempe Brennan is called in to identify the victims. A chance discovery concerns her: a severed foot, well away from the main crash site. A deserted house close by is buried so deep in the woods that locals claim to know nothing of its existence. And her examination of the foot throws up more questions than answers. Before she can make any progress Tempe's professional standing is threatened. But she fears that, air tragedy aside, another corpse lies somewhere in the woods. Pitting herself against a conspiracy of silence, Tempe vows to bring justice for her mystery victim.

I found the performance and text jarring. illogical reactions by the characters felt unnaturally awkward.

Fatally unput downable!

In Fatal Voyage Tempe finds an old foot bone mixed with the human remains of a plane crash site she is helping with. As a result of meddling by prominent members of the community, she is ordered of the case. Bones refuses to give up and investigates anyway. Kate Harper delivers a great performance which makes Fatal Voyage by Kathy Reichs fatally unput downable.

Interesting enough to compel me to go on

What did you love best about Fatal Voyage?

I've read almost all of the Kathy Reichs books and they are like an old friend now.

What other book might you compare Fatal Voyage to and why?

They are a bit like Patricia Cornwalls Scarpetta books, same kind of main character but Tempe is less pretentious.

Did Kate Harper do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

I don't really like her voice but it forced me to think of the main character as different from the one I heard in my head when I read them.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

A really bad few days at the office.

Involving, interesting and enjoyable!

What more could you ask! Possibly not for the uber squeamish! Well written and very well read - an enjoyable way to spend a few hours.

Well written but not favourite.

Kathy Reichs is a huge talent whose writing I have always enjoyed enormously. Fatal Voyage is not an exception but it's not my favourite.
The narration was not my favourite and I did not feel she was a good match for Brennan. Despite this the voice acting was strong with good characterisation.
