Set in the Northwest territories of Canada, the latest from Kathy Reichs finds Tempe Brennan investigating a triple-infanticide and multiple murders in the cut-throat diamond mining business. Tempe is called in to evaluate the corpses of three murdered babies in Montreal, and her long-time flame Detective Ryan is charged with pursuing the likeliest suspect, their mother, a prostitute in the past, and possibly still. But when the suspect flees to Edmonton, the investigation is jarred by a sergeant in the Royal Canadian Mounted Police with whom Tempe had an ill-advised fling at Quantico over a decade earlier. Sexual tension and violence run high in this stellar new book by Reichs.
Kathy Reichs, like her character Temperance Brennan, is a forensic anthropologist, formerly for the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner in North Carolina and for the province of Quebec. A professor in the department of anthropology at the UNC at Charlotte, she is one of only eighty-eight forensic anthropologists ever certified by the American Board of Forensic Anthropology, is past Vice President of the American Academy of Forensic Sciences, and serves on the National Police Services Advisory Council in Canada.
