About the author

Biography of Reichs, Kathy

Kathleen Joan "Kathy" Reichs was born in 1950 and is a native of Chicago. In 1971 she graduated from American University with a Bachelor of Arts degree in anthropology, and in 1972 she earned a Master of Arts in physical anthropology from Northwestern University. Reichs received her Ph.D. in physical anthropology from Northwestern University in 1975. She works as a forensic anthropologist for the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner, State of North Carolina and for the Laboratoire de's Sciences Judiciaires et de Mdecine Lgale in Quebec and has taught at Northern Illinois University, University of Pittsburgh, Concordia University, McGill University, and the University of North Carolina at Charlotte.

Her work as a forensic anthropologist is internationally recognized; she has traveled to Rwanda to testify at the UN Tribunal on Genocide, helped in an exhumation in the area of the highlands of southwest Guatemala, and done forensic work at Ground Zero in New York. In addition to her published academic papers and books, Reichs has written many works of crime fiction. Dj Dead won the 1997 Arthur Ellis Award for Best First Novel. She is a producer on the Fox television series Bones, which is loosely based on her own forensic career and writing.

Reviews

Review by Library Journal (2009-07-29)

Awaking bound in an underground tunnel, forensic anthropologist Temperance "Tempe" Brennan struggles to put together the events leading up to her abduction. She remembers accompanying her ex-husband, Montreal detective Andrew Ryan, to Chicago to check out a cold case-where she learned that someone has accused her of bungling her initial postmortem. Professional feathers ruffled, Tempe returns to Quebec to clear her name. Her fellow examiners are also on edge as a new pathologist displays an unerring ability to find errors in their work.

Verdict: This 12th forensic thriller in the series (after Devil Bones) will delight fans of medical mysteries by Patricia Cornwell and Tess Gerritsen. Reichs is a forensic anthropologist, and she's a heck of a lot of fun to read. Highly recommended.

Book description

There are 206 bones in the human body. Forensic anthropologists know them intimately, can read in them stories of brief or long lives and use them to reconstruct every kind of violent end. Tempe regains consciousness and discovers she is in some kind of very small, very dark, very cold enclosed space. She is bound, hands to feet. Who wants Tempe dead, or at least out of the way, and why? Tempe begins slowly to reconstruct... Tempe and Lieutenant Ryan had accompanied the recently discovered remains of a missing heiress from Montreal to the Chicago morgue. Suddenly, Tempe was accused of mishandling the autopsy - and the case.
