Synopsis

When an Orthodox Jew is found shot to death in Montreal, Temperance Brennan is called in to examine the body and to figure out the puzzling damage to the corpse. Unexpectedly, a stranger slips her a photograph of a skeleton and assures her the picture is the key to the victim's death. Before she knows it, Tempe is involved in an international mystery as old as Jesus, a mystery that could rewrite 2000 years of religious history. Tempe learns that the stranger's picture shows bones uncovered during an archeological dig. She discovers the Montreal shooting victim ran an import business that might have fronted for the trade of black market antiquities. Along with Detective Andrew Ryan and biblical archeologist Jake Drum, Tempe travels to Israel to probe the origins of the skeleton and the ancient crypt in which it was found. They make a startling discovery that raises radical questions about Christ's death and places them squarely in the middle of a swirling controversy. Could one of the tombs really be Christ's last resting place? Or, has someone concocted an elaborate hoax?

About the Author

We know the theory about life imitating art as describes by Oscar Wilde, but in her case, the writings of author, Kathy Reichs, is more that her art writing imitates her life. Riechs has many degrees in forensic anthropology and academia. She is one of only eighty-two forensic anthropologists who are certified by the American Board of Forensic Anthropology. Many television fans will recognize her main character in her books, Temperance "Tempe" Brennan as the main character in the Fox series, Bones. The series is loosely based on Reich's books and her professional experiences. She has even been a guest participating in a few episodes. Emily Deschanel plays Temperance "Bones" Brennan, the man character in the series.

Author Reichs has had a very diverse career aside from her success as a premier author of nineteen novels. She has consulted in Tanzania, to testify at the United Nations' International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda. Assisted in the Highlands of Guatemala, and served as a member of the Disaster Mortuary Operational Response Team to assist with the disaster at the World Trade Center.

Reichs describes herself as "fastidiously conscientious about getting the science right" in her books.......just as she would be when conducting an actual investigation. She relies on her true life experiences when writing her books........art imitating life. She has been known to say that anything she described in a book actually happened in real life. She was an expert witness in the Casey Anthony case. She refused at first, but felt it necessary when Anthony began to be tried in the press instead of in the court of law. She did a full skeletal analysis of Anthony's daughter, Caylee, and could not determine the cause of death, but concluded that there was no evidence of child abuse or malnutrition. Sometimes life can be a lot more puzzling than art.
