The latest novel by Kathy Reichs again features Tempe Brennan, forensic anthropologist for North Carolina and Quebec--the same role Reichs occupies in real life. While the geography is unusual, Reichs's stories are interesting, educational, well-written, and fun. In this title, Brennan discovers the skeletons of three women in the basement of a pizzeria. Of course, it's Brennan's further "digging" that eventually uncovers the murderer. Michelle Pawk has a soft but strong voice, which she uses effectively, changing her style as Brennan's emotions ebb and flow. Pawk is especially effective when Brennan reveals her feelings about chauvinist detective Luc Claudel and Detective Andrew Ryan, whom Brennan adores, but whose actions leave her wondering if his feelings are reciprocal.
