Description

No one speaks the language of suspense more brilliantly than Kathy Reichs, number-one New York Times best-selling author of the acclaimed Temperance Brennan series. In Speaking in Bones, the forensic anthropologist finds herself drawn into a world of dark secrets and dangerous beliefs, where good and evil blur.

Professionally, Temperance Brennan knows exactly what to do - test, analyze, identify. Her personal life is another story. She's at a loss, wondering how to answer police detective Andrew Ryan's marriage proposal. But the matter of matrimony takes a backseat when murder rears its head.

Hazel "Lucky" Strike - a strident amateur detective who mines the Internet for cold cases - comes to Brennan with a tape recording of an unknown girl being held prisoner and terrorized. Strike is convinced the voice is that of 18-year-old Cora Teague, who went missing more than three years earlier. Strike is also certain that the teenager's remains are gathering dust in Temperance Brennan's lab.

Brennan has doubts about working with a self-styled websleuth. But when the evidence seems to add up, Brennan's next stop is the treacherous backwoods where the chilling recording (and maybe Cora Teague's bones) were discovered. Her forensic field trip turns up only more disturbing questions - along with gruesome proof of more untimely deaths.

While local legends of eerie nocturnal phenomena and sinister satanic cults abound, it's a zealous and secretive religious sect that has Brennan spooked and struggling to separate the saints from the sinners. But there's nothing, including fire and brimstone, that can distract her from digging up the truth and taking down a killer - even as Brennan finds herself in a place where angels fear to tread, devils demand their due, and she may be damned no matter what.

Tempe is brilliant yet brainless at times.

What did you love best about Speaking in Bones?

Speaking in Bones kept my attention and I always enjoy the Temperance Brennan books. I look forward to a new book coming out but there will always be a portion in the story that I become so angry at Tempe and/or Kathy Reichs that I really want to stop listening. Why have this brilliant, smart, highly qualified character act so brainless at times!!!

What did you like best about this story?

Kathy Reichs kept tossing Red Herrings and all seemed plausible at the time. I wasn't sure what was happening until the very end when the author wanted the reader/listener to know. Excellent job!!

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I did - kept my attention and kept me guessing.

Smart Woman Acting Like an Idiot

I enjoyed the early books where Brenna actually acted like a forensic anthropologist. Now she runs around as an amateur detective and walks into situations where the dumb blondes in the horror movies wouldn't go alone! She tells Ryan that his protectiveness is unnecessary, and she can handle herself, and then walks into yet another situation where she requires a male or two to rescue her . This is just getting stupid. A book about a scientist should be a procedural mystery, solving cases primarily in the lab, not trying to be an action adventure hero.

Characters have gotten too unbelievable

Temperance Brennan is supposedly too old, too smart, too experienced, too well educated to keep getting more and more lame-brained and impetuous with each book. Her actions have just become unbelievable, stupid. The relationship with Ryan isn't much better as it jumps all over the place. First, we have Ryan's unknown illegitimate almost grown teenage daughter. And oh, she happens to be a heroin addict. Off Ryan goes, and more and more ridiculous story lines follow. Now Brennan suddenly is acting about as mature as a 12 year old unable to make a decision, unable to have a mature conversation, acting like a witch with a capital B. The terrible characters have now gotten where they take away from the basic story.

Awful book, the "scary" parts made me LOL

Tempe has to be the stupidest intelligent woman I have ever encountered. She does one moronic thing after another. By the end I was hoping that she would finally be killed after she needlessly rushed into another dangerous situation. The "scary" parts toward the end literally made me burst out laughing. This book was an insult to the reader's intelligence. The only positive thing I can say is that the narrator was good. Too bad her efforts were wasted on such a bad book.

Another Good Story of Dr. Brennan's Tenacity

Would you consider the audio edition of Speaking in Bones to be better than the print version?

Yes. I always like the studio version best.

Who was your favorite character and why?

The Deputy Sheriff in the county where the missing people lived. He was a great character. It gives without saying that Brennan, Slidell, and her French Canadian are also favorites.

What does Katherine Borowitz bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

She adds the inflection to bring the characters to life.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes. I liked the book and will be reading the next one published. I especially liked the ending. I would have been mad if it had ended another way.

There are better stories

The story does not pick up any speed. Lots of different characters, but without much personality.
