From the Publisher
Kathy Reichs, #1 New York Times bestselling author and
producer of the FOX televison hit Bones, is at her
brilliant best in a riveting novel featuring forensic
anthropologist Tempe Brennan-a story of infanticide, murder, and
corruption, set in the high-stakes, high-danger world of diamond
A woman calling herself Amy Roberts checks into a Montreal hospital
complaining of uncontrolled bleeding. Doctors see evidence of a
recent birth, but before they can act, Roberts disappears.
Dispatched to the address she gave at the hospital, police discover
bloody towels outside in a Dumpster. Fearing the worst, they call
Temperance Brennan to investigate.
In a run-down apartment Tempe makes a ghastly discovery: the
decomposing bodies of three infants. According to the landlord, a
woman named Alma Rogers lives there. Then a man shows up looking
for Alva Rodriguez. Are Amy Roberts, Alma Rogers, and Alva
Rodriguez the same person? Did she kill her own babies? And where
is she now?
Heading up the investigation is Tempe's old flame, homicide
detective Andrew Ryan. His counterpart from the Royal Canadian
Mounted Police is sergeant Ollie Hasty, who happens to have a
little history with Tempe himself, which she regrets. This unlikely
trio follows the woman's trail, first to Edmonton and then to
Yellowknife, a remote diamond-mining city deep in the Northwest
Territories. What they find in Yellowknife is more sinister than
they ever could have imagined.
Crackling with sexual tension, whip-smart dialogue, and the
startling plot twists Reichs delivers so well, Bones Are
Forever is the fifteenth thrilling novel in Reichs's "cleverly
plotted and expertly maintained series" (The New York Times
Book Review). With the FOX series Bones in its eighth
season and her popularity at its broadest ever, Kathy Reichs has
reached new heights in suspenseful storytelling.
