Synopsis

Nine-year-old Emily Anne Toussaint is shot dead on a Montreal street. A North Carolina teenager disappears from her home and parts of what may be her skeleton are found hundreds of miles away. For Dr. Temperance Brennan, a forensic anthropologist in both Montreal and North Carolina, the deaths kindle deep emotions that propel her on a harrowing journey into the world of outlaw motorcycle gangs. As a scientist, Tempe should remain dispassionate. As a caring individual, she yearns to take the killers off the streets. With her boss Pierre LaManche in the hospital, and her friend Andrew Ryan disturbingly unavailable, Tempe begins a perilous investigation into a culture where evil often wears masks. From blood-splatter patterns and ground-penetrating radar to bone-sample analysis, Deadly Decisions triumphantly combines the authenticity of a world-class forensic professional with the narrative power of a brilliant new crime-writing star in a richly nuanced thriller.

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.
