When I started reading this, I didn't think I would enjoy it but it turned out to be pretty good. Fast paced, interesting characters. Brought in the subject of human trafficking that is a real problem world-wide.

Wasn't a huge fan of this book. The plot was meh and I too found that there was A LOT of military terms that I didn't really care to read or learn about.

I found this book poor in comparison to her earlier novels. I felt she was trying to make a plot from too many amazing coincidences, using police & military jargon in a less than convincing way, lecturing on forensic points rather than working them naturally into the story, and lastly the love triangle parts about Ryan and Pete felt like awkward last minute add-ons & did not add to the story.

An average read at best. Far too much military jargon. This series is getting stale and the "love triangle" is getting very boring.

Another excellent title in the Temperance Brennan series. I never get tired of reading this series--Kathy Reichs always researches her subject matter so well and chooses contemporary themes. This storyline deals with human trafficking and certainly educated me on this issue.

I found Bones of the Lost a terrific read and it throws a light on human trafficking, especially young women. Reichs is not the best writer in the world and sometimes the cliff-hangers at the end of a chapter are almost cartoonish, but she writes with passion, she knows her stuff, and it moves along very quickly. Most of all, I learn something new with every book.

Her books are getting darker, more complex, and less detailed re: forensic evidence. I really enjoyed the earlier books with more forensic details.
