Item Details

"Unexpectedly called in to the Charlotte PD's Cold Case Unit, Dr. Temperance Brennan wonders why she's been asked to meet with a homicide cop who's a long way from his own jurisdiction. The shocking answer: Two child murders, separated by thousands of miles, have one thing in common--the killer. Years ago, Anique Pomerleau kidnapped and murdered a string of girls in Canada, then narrowly eluded capture. It was a devastating defeat for her pursuers, Brennan and police detective Andrew Ryan. Now, as if summoned from their nightmares, Pomerleau has resurfaced in the United States, linked to victims in Vermont and North Carolina. When another child is snatched, the reign of terror promises to continue--unless Brennan can rise to the challenge and make good on her second chance to stop a psychopath. But Brennan will have to draw her bitter ex-partner out of exile, keep the local police and feds from one another's throats, and face more than just her own demons as she stalks the deadliest of predators into the darkest depths of madness" -- When a serial killer previously responsible for a string of kidnappings and murders in Canada resurfaces in the United States, Temperance Brennan is called in to pursue a deadly predator who narrowly evaded capture by Brennan once before.

One thing about Kathy Reichs - you can never be sure if the plots in the Tempe Brennan series are figments of her imagination, or stories based on real-life cases she has worked on as a forensic anthropologist. This book is one of Reichs' best, weaving an investigation that has elements in the two jurisdictions where she works in real life - Qu├ębec and North Carolina. As usual, she avoids the "CSI effect" and takes pains to stress DNA and other forensics tests often take weeks, not hours - something that is no one's friend when a serial killer is on the loose. She also keeps the story going as one suspect is dropped and another is added. Charming ending to this installment.

I enjoyed this one as I haven't done with several of her recent novels. This one is shorter with a broader scope; fascinating from the forensic point of view as all the links with unsolved previous cases are established.As a result, I will never be able to view maple syrup in the same light again!

Excellent read, as always.

Another satisfying read from Kathy Reichs, a real life forensic anthropologist.
