Publisher's Summary

Number one New York Times best-selling author Kathy Reichs returns with a new riveting novel featuring her vastly popular character forensic anthropologist Temperance Brennan, who must use all her tradecraft to discover the identity of a faceless corpse, its connection to a decade-old missing child case, and why the dead man had her cellphone number.

It’s sweltering in Charlotte, North Carolina, and Temperance Brennan, still recovering from neurosurgery following an aneurysm, is battling nightmares, migraines, and what she thinks might be hallucinations when she receives a series of mysterious text messages, each containing a new picture of a corpse that is missing its face and hands. Immediately, she’s anxious to know who the dead man is, and why the images were sent to her.

An unidentified corpse soon turns up, only partly answering her questions.

To win answers to the others, including the man’s identity, she must go rogue, working mostly outside the system. That’s because Tempe’s new boss holds a fierce grudge against her and is determined to keep her off the case. Tempe bulls forward anyway, even as she begins questioning her instincts. But the clues she discovers are disturbing and confusing. Was the faceless man a spy? A trafficker? A target for assassination by the government? And why was he carrying the name of a child missing for almost a decade?

With help from a number of law enforcement associates including her Montreal beau Andrew Ryan and the always-ready-with-a-smart-quip, ex-homicide investigator Skinny Slidell, and utilizing new cutting-edge forensic methods, Tempe draws closer to the astonishing truth.

But the more she uncovers, the darker and more twisted the picture becomes....

Suspenseful

The book definitely catches and intrigues. There were a few slow spots but it quicky picks up again.

hard to listen to

I love Kathy Reichs books, but listening to this was painful. I think not trying to do the different voices and accents would have helped. couldn't get through it

My first Reichs and my 1rst Audible

C'était une écoute très agréable. C'était aussi la 1re fois que j'ecoutais un Reichs, qui a une bonne imagination. La narratrice était excellente et ses changements de voix rendaient le tout plus intéressant.

Great Story Line and narration

I missed Tempe. It was so good to have her back.
I liked how she knocked down a pedestal or two. Made her seem more relatable.
Skinny has always been such a fun character and he didn't disappoint.

Linda Emond has narrated many of her books and I think she nails it every time.

Great story, interesting twists. Good old fashioned investigation. Really good read.
