Genre: Crime Fiction

Published in 2001

Recommended Age Group: Adult

Summary: Temperance Brennan is called in help investigate an airplane crash that left eighty-eight people dead and discovers that the crash isn’t the only fatal scene in the North Carolina mountains. On a walk to clear her head some coyotes protecting a human foot attack Tempe. With a little help from Andrew Ryan she is able to free the foot and catalog it. This marks the beginning of the major drama in the book. Apparently someone didn’t want the foot to be found because Tempe is accused of mishandling and tempering with evidence and is suspended from work and the investigation. In an effort to clear her name Tempe still tries to solve the case but it met by roadblocks and uncooperative officials on every side. The local sheriff is on her side and so is Ryan, with their help and a little encouragement from her estranged husband Pete, Tempe solves the case and uncovers a major political scandal.

Personal Notes: Gripping, heart wrenching, and entertaining at the same time. There’s a lot of mystery and suspense in this one. With Tempe off the job for a bogus claim she still wants to solve the crime and clear her name but so many things are against her. It makes it more interesting and more lifelike. It’s more complex then the common good guy bad guy struggle.
