Bones to Ashes - Kathy Reichsmy interest soon disintegrated (874 words)

The back cover claims that this novel is primarily about a skeleton: 'that of a young girl, no more than fourteen years old'.

This is the latest Kathy Reichs book I ve read; I m familiar with her style as I ve read/reviewed a few before, so I knew roughly what to expect. This book fits into the crime/thriller genre and whilst it may not be everyone s cuppa tea, and I agree that some of the detailing can be quite confusing, it was an intelligent and enjoyable read nonetheless. Break No Bones introduces us to Temperance (aka Tempe) Brennan, the protagonist in Reich s novels. She s a forensic anthropologist, working several sites and at the start of the novel she s leading an archaeological field school digging prehistoric graves on the Dewees Island, north of Charleston, South Carolina.
