Description

Temperance Brennan hears the news on her car radio. An Air TransSouth flight has gone down in the mountains of western North Carolina, taking with it 88 passengers and crew.

An a forensic anthropologist and a member of the regional DMORT team, Tempe rushes to the scene to assist in body recovery and identification. She finds a field of carnage: torsos in trees, limbs strewn among bursting suitcases, and smoldering debris. Many of the dead are members of a university soccer team. Is Tempe's daughter, Katy, among them?

Frantic with worry, Tempe joins colleagues from the FBI, the NTSB, and other agencies to search for explanations. Was the plane brought down by a bomb or simple mechanical failure? And what about the prisoner on the plane who was being extradited to Canada? Did someone want him silenced forever? And why are certain people eager to stop Tempe's investigation? Is she learning too much? Coming too close?

With help from Montreal detective Andrew Ryan - and from a very special dog named Boyd - Tempe uncovers a shocking, multilayered tale of deceit and depravity.

Written with the riveting authenticity that only world-class forensic anthropologist Kathy Reichs can provide, Fatal Voyage pairs witty, elegant prose with pulse-pounding storytelling in a tour de force worthy of crime writing's new superstar.

Annoying narrator with a good story

Is there anything you would change about this book?

Kathy Reichs is best when she describes the science but her general writing can be cliched and trite. Too many hyperbolic similes and exaggerated descriptions "loud enough to be heard in Buenos Aires". Really? Brennan is a scientist and such a description is just stupic.

Would you ever listen to anything by Kathy Reichs again?

yes

Would you be willing to try another one of Kate Harper’s performances?

NO! At many points she screeches and whines making me dislike the characters.

Good, but a bit tedious in places

What made the experience of listening to Fatal Voyage the most enjoyable?

It was a good and complex plot, characters well-developed and believable. but sometimes (just a few) I felt my eyes glazing over, trying to get through explanations of the scientific evidence. But that's just me. I'm pretty sure those were parts my husband really enjoyed. So obviously, that goes to personal taste.

It's actually a pretty good book. Found myself looking forward to the next listen. The narrator had a great challenge, because it was a large set of characters. She was much better with the womens' voices than with the mens'.

I'd recommend the series. But this one book could be difficult for some people to listen to due to the sensitive nature of much of the story having to do with a plane crash, one that had been carrying a lot of kids on board. That would be my only caveat.

An early novel in the Temperance Brennan series

Author Kathy Reichs' writes semi-autobiographical novels about the exploits of forensic anthropologist Temperance Brennan. While Reichs is clearly not as heroic as Temperance Brennan, their careers and educational backgrounds are identical down to their job titles and the places they lived and worked as forensic anthropologists. FATAL VOYAGE is about a plane crash in the mountains of Swain County, NC. The novel was well on its way to earning 5 stars until near the end when the author decided to throw in a few chapters about a male cult of cannibals who had been operating in the area for almost 100 years. This series consists of 18 novels, 2 novellas, and one short story. The narration of FATAL VOYAGE is barely adequate.

Better version than the abridged version I had.

I could only get the abridged version when I purchased this audio version. Always felt cheated so went for the unabridged version. Very glad I did. I have never been a fan of abridged books. Prefer to pick what to skip on my own.

Loved this listen. What I a discovering is that I prefer the stories that take place up north over the ones that take place in the south.

Did not care for reader.

Reader was not very good. Story was fare. Hope she doesn't read more books. Thanks

Not the best

This book wasn't as exciting as the others in the series. I did not care for the narrators rendition of the voices either. It felt child-like and simple.

Fatal Voyage

This is not really my favorite topic, and I've been trying to steer away from murder mysteries to other types of adventure. Nevertheless the book presented some interesting moments and some gruesome scenes. All-in-all those who are into this type of genre will most likely find this worth their credit. Also there is profanity sprinkled throughout but not to the point of distraction.

The best so far

Maybe I am getting used to the highly technical nature of these books, and the first-person style in but this book has a great mystery and more twists in both plot and relationships.

Kate Harper is also a better performer for Kathy Reichs' style, and she kept the characters different and entertaining. I was disappointed to see that she is not narrating other books in this series.

The only detraction was that the characters took a little too long to catch up to the reader. It is always good to let the reader come to conclusions a moment before the main characters -- that helps the suspension of disbelief, but at times this story takes it a tiny bit too far.

Over all very entertaining. If you are a fan of the series, definitely don't skip this one.

Such a boring narration

I will struggle to finish this book. I wish there was a first day return policy so I can return it and get my credit back to get a different book.
