In this first novel by Reichs, Temperance aka Tempe, is a forensic anthropologist who examines bones. Tempe is called to the seen where some human bones have been found. The situation and way the bones are found reminds her of a previous encounter with bones that were discovered. The problem lies with trying to convince the police detectives working the case that there is a possible serial killer on the loose. Before Tempe knows it she and her family and friends are in danger themselves.
This was the first in the series and a great read find for me because I will definitely be continuing on with the series. I just love finding new to me authors. :) Tempe came across as a very down to earth character that as the reader I cared about. I felt for her and worried about her. There was a lot of technical language relating to forensic anthropology that was heavy in a few parts-but for the most part it enhanced rather than detracted from the story. Overall, good book and I enjoyed reading it.
