television hit Bones KATHY
REICHS exposes the high-stakes, high-danger world
of diamond mining as Dr. Temperance Brennan tracks a murder suspect
deep into the Northwest Territories.
Beneath a diamond's perfect surface lies a story of violence
and greed. Just like bones. . . .
In a run-down Montreal apartment, Tempe finds the heartbreaking
evidence of three innocent lives ended. The landlord says Alma
Rogers lives there-is she the same woman who checked into a city
hospital as Amy Roberts, then fled before doctors could treat her
uncontrolled bleeding? Is she Alva Rodriguez, sought by a man who
appeared at the crime scene? Heading up an investigation crackling
with the sexual tension of past intimacies, Tempe leads homicide
detective Andrew Ryan and police sergeant Ollie Hasty along the
woman's trail and into the farthest reaches of mining country-an
unforgiving place where the grim industry of unearthing diamonds
exacts a price in blood. And where the truths the unlikely trio
uncovers are more sinister than they could have imagined.
