Synopsis

#1 New York Times bestselling author Kathy Reichs, a producer of the Fox television hit Bones , returns with a riveting new novel featuring America’s favorite forensic anthropologist, Tempe Brennan. The New York Times Book Review hailed the Tempe Brennan novels as a “cleverly plotted and expertly maintained series.” Spider Bones opens as Temperance Brennan is called to the scene of a drowning in Hemmingford, Quebec. The victim appears to have died while in the midst of a bizarre sexual practice. The body is identified as a man originally declared dead in 1968—the victim of a Huey crash in Vietnam. Tempe exhumes the soldier’s corpse from his grave in North Carolina and flies with the remains to Hawaii for a reanalysis of the bones. But it’s not long before another set of remains are found with the first victim’s dog tags tangled amongst them. There are now two unidentified bodies—both with strange connections. Meanwhile, the Honolulu medical examiner asks Tempe for help with remains found offshore—from yet another victim. Is it the victim of a shark attack? Or something much more sinister…

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.
