I’ve been reading and enjoying this series for years. And though this is book 20 of the Temperance Brennan series, it remains one of my favorites.
Tempe Brennan is a forensic anthropologist who splits her time between Montreal and South Carolina. And this book takes us back and forth between the two…several times!
A mysterious barrel washes ashore in S. Carolina with two bodies stuffed in it. After Tempe is informed of the contents, she instantly recalls a strikingly similar scene in Montreal fifteen years ago. A case that was never solved. Is it conceivable these two cases are related? What are the odds it’s simply coincidental? (After all these reads, haven’t we all quit believing in coincidences?!)
I just love Tempe. She’s a strong, confident woman in both her professional life, and as a devoted, loving partner with Ryan, the man who has stolen her heart over the years. Recently retired from the Montreal homicide division, Ryan is branching out on his own as an investigator.
The storylines, though a bit gruesome at times held my attention throughout. Tempe’s personal life makes an equally strong showing as she works to solve the many cases that come across her desks on both sides of the border.
I believe all fans of this series will enjoy this latest addition. It can be read as a stand-alone, but I do recommend starting at the beginning of the series.
Thank you to NetGalley and Scribner for an ARC to read and review.
