Book: Bones Never Lie

Kathy Reichs
William Heinemann, 27.50, ebook £4.99
Review: Rachel Howdle

International bestselling author Kathy Reichs returns with her 17th novel in the Bones series. When Tempe is called on a case, it soon becomes clear that she has hunted for this child-killing monster before. This particular killer is her ‘one that got away’.

But before she can get down to business, Temperance Brennan must first track down Detective Ryan — her partner, and sometime lover— from the original investigation. The tricky part is, he’s been missing since his daughter’s death.

The anthropologist gets help from an unexpected avenue, her sick mother. Coincidences begin to mount, until it becomes clear that the murders are all, in some way, connected to Brennan. As evidence begins building up, Ryan and Brennan find that their prime suspect has also been killed, and the body hidden in a barrel of maple syrup. Question is— who is killing these girls now?
