Abridging Reichs's complex books, rich in detail, would seem to be a daunting task. It has nevertheless been accomplished here (by George Truett), retaining the book's story, spirit, and impact. Katherine Borowitz's precise and evocative narration complements Tempe Brennan's latest, a foray into the world of biker groups, violent death, and dealing with a sometimes difficult nephew as a houseguest in her home in Quebec. Borowitz's reading of French phrases is perfectly voiced, and she makes real a range of complex characters--from outlaw bikers to French-Canadian police. As Tempe works to identify the skeleton of a young girl and find out who is apparently threatening her, Borowitz crafts a flawless performance that brings the listener totally into Tempe's life.
