Death du Jour

by Kathy Reichs

‘Temperance Brennan’ series Book #2)

Forensic anthropologist Kathy Reichs exploded onto bestselling lists worldwide with her phenomenal debut novel Deja Dead – and introduced “a brilliant heroine” (Glamour) in league with Patricia Cornwell’s Kay Scarpetta. Dr. Temperance Brennen, Quebec’s director of forensic anthopology, now returns in a thrilling new investigation into the secrets of the dead.

In the bitter cold of a Montreal winter, Tempe Brennan is digging for a corpse buried more than a century ago. Although Tempe thrives on such enigmas from the past, it’s a chain of contemporary deaths and disappearances that has seized her attention – and she alone is ideally placed ot make a chilling connection among the seemingly unrelated events. At the crime scene, at the morgue, and in the lab, Tempe probes a mystery that sweeps from a deadly Quebec fire to startling discoveries in the Carolinas, and culminates in Montreal with a terrigyin showdown – a nerve-shattering test of both her forensic expertise and her skills for survival.

Review: Finished August 3rh, 2006. Above and beyond awesome! There’s a reason why Kathy Reichs is highly praised. She deserves it! Tempe is down-to-eart, and she feels and acts like a real person. The attention to detail, whether the surroundings, the job or thoughts… it brings the entire book to life. The way Reichs’s little plots all popped into one, so smoothly, with that punch for a climax, keeps you holding your breath as you turn the page. Wicked… and can’t wait to read more!
