Synopsis

#1 New York Times bestselling author Kathy Reichs returns with her twentieth gripping novel featuring forensic anthropologist Temperance Brennan, whose examinations, fifteen years apart, of unidentified bodies ignite a terrifying series of events.On the way to hurricane-ravaged Isle of Palms, a barrier island off the South Carolina coast, Tempe receives a call from the Charleston coroner. The storm has tossed ashore a medical waste container. Inside are two decomposed bodies wrapped in plastic sheeting and bound with electrical wire. Tempe recognizes many of the details as identical to those of an unsolved case she handled in Quebec years earlier. With a growing sense of foreboding, she travels to Montreal to gather evidence. Meanwhile, health authorities in South Carolina become increasingly alarmed as a human flesh-eating contagion spreads. So focused is Tempe on identifying the container victims that, initially, she doesn’t register how their murders and the pestilence may be related. But she does recognize one unsettling fact. Someone is protecting a dark secret—and willing to do anything to keep it hidden. An absorbing look at the sinister uses to which genetics can be put, and featuring a cascade of ever-more-shocking revelations, The Bone Code is Temperance Brennan’s most astonishing case yet—one that gives new meaning to today’s headlines.

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.
