There's good news and more good news about this audiobook, another in the series featuring Medical Examiner Temperence Brennan. Those with analytical minds and an interest in forensic anthropology will appreciate Reichs's tight plot, faithfulness to the anthropological process, and sound scientific conclusions. Further, Barbara Rosenblat correctly pronounces the French words and names, as well as the myriad medical terms. She even manages to make understandable complex forensics, such as the difference between nuclear and mitochondrial DNA. Rosenblat's voice for Charlie, a cockatoo who yodels after drinking beer, is terrific comic relief. Dialogue between Tempe and male lead Andrew Ryan is clever and timed as the repartee of agile minds. K.A.T. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB/ MAR 06]
