The Bone Collection: Four Novellas

Author(s): Kathy Reichs

Crime

A collection of chilling tales featuring forensic anthropologist Temperance Brennan - including the untold story of her first case. No matter where she goes, Tempe's cases make for the most gripping reading. Dr Temperance Brennan thought she'd seen it all until she came across Bones in Her Pocket in the foothills of North Carolina. Down in the Everglades Tempe investigates Swamp Bones- - a grisly discovery in the stomach of an eighteen-foot Burmese python. In the heights of Mount Everest a frozen corpse means Bones On Ice. And First Bones gets under Tempe's skin with the untold story of her first case and her decision to become a forensic anthropologist.

Product Information

"Reichs' own experiences shine through at all times and she writes with an authority that few can match, but these are not dry takes from a textbook. Even in the middle of death at its most gruesome, life finds a way to shine through." Crime Review

As a forensic anthropologist to the province of Quebec, Canada, Kathy Reichs has often said that words with the dead, but for the living. Forensics are an integral part of her world, with cases constantly coming in to her lab. And yet her chosen profession is, she says, like any other job. You may get used to what's happening around you, and to the sounds and smells and sights of death, but this doesn't mean you become immune to it. Each of her books is based loosely on the cases she's worked on, or some experience she's had. She believes that her stories remain fresh because they originate from her being enmeshed and engaged in forensic work on a regular basis. Kathy Reichs is one of only eighty-two forensic anthropologists ever certified by the American Board of Forensic Anthropology. She is a professor in the Anthropology Department at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte.
