Mystery & Suspense • 10.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2007

Forensic anthropologist Tempe Brennan's latest case brings her into contact with estranged beau Ryan. It seems she has old bones to analyze, and he has cold cases involving missing girls. Is one of her bodies Evangeline, an Acadian childhood friend who disappeared years ago? The French-Canadian setting with its bilingual characters provides narrator Linda Emond with challenges well met. She glides easily from impersonating Tempe's interfering Southern sister to a conversation with a mentally handicapped child to flirty Tempe-Ryan banter. At the same time, she keeps control of multiple plot lines involving, among other things, leprosy and child pornography. Best of all, she is able to alternate between Tempe's clinical and emotional sides. Other Tempe audios are available if you like this one.
