First Line: I wasn’t thinking about the man who’d blown himself up.
Dr. Temperance Brennan finds herself trying to convince her coworkers that there is a serial killer on the loose in Quebec. Five women have to die before she is finally able to convince them of this. Racing against the clock, after losing her best friend and the thought of losing her daughter starts to become quite a real possibility, Brennan has to face the killer herself.
I was not incredibly impressed with this novel. Maybe it’s because I know the TV show “Bones” so well and this is so not at all like the show. But I really had trouble with all the technological and medical information (in addition to the comments in French) and it really put a damper on my opinion of the book. I was bogged down throughout the entire reading and I doubt I will continue on with this series.
