Although there's a bit too much forensic babble in this twelfth book about anthropologist Temperance Brennan, Linda Emond makes the frequent transitions from scientific jargon to intriguing murder mystery gracefully. The plot itself is also transitional and intriguing as well. As the story opens, Brennan awakes to find herself hog-tied and bottled up in some kind of earthen tomb. As she starts to put together how she got there, piece by piece, you shift from the tomb to the facts and histories behind three killings she had been investigating. Emond transitions from past to present and scene to scene adroitly. Her voice, unusually potent for a female reader, adds just the right touch to the several characters. And there’s a big bonus included, too—the author’s first Temperance Brennan thriller, DÉJÀ DEAD—for free! A.L.H © AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine [Published: SEPTEMBER 2009]
