    Just as 200,000 fans are pouring into town for Race Week, a body is found in a barrel of asphalt next to the Charlotte Motor Speedway. The next day, a NASCAR crew member comes to Temperance Brennan’s office at the Mecklenburg County Medical Examiner to share a devastating story. Twelve years earlier, Wayne Gamble’s sister, Cindi, then a high school senior and aspiring racer, disappeared along with her boyfriend, Cale Lovette. Lovette kept company with a group of right-wing extremists known as the Patriot Posse.

    I am a hard-core Bones fan, and last summer started reading the books that the series is based on. Her writing style amuses me and I love the mysteries... That said, this was probably the worst book in the series. That doesn't mean it's bad, but there's much less science in the book than normal; I learned more about NASCAR than I did about forensics (Ms. Reichs is a real live forensic anthropologist much like her Temperance Brennan counterpart). I really look forward more to the books set in Canada than the Charlotte, NC settings--I like Detective Andrew Ryan better than "Skinny" Slidell.

    That doesn't mean you shouldn't read it if you like a good mystery, but I'd highly recommend some of her earlier books before this one... 206 Bones is spectacular (her first), Cross Bones is a wild ride, and Grave Secrets is wonderful.

    If you like the TV show and you haven't read any of her books, start with those, as this one might turn you off the series if you start here, it's totally not up to her normal level. :)

    The narrator has voiced other books in the series and does a great job with the southern accents.

    Unexpectedly called in to the Charlotte PD's Cold Case Unit, Dr. Temperance Brennan wonders why she's been asked to meet with a homicide cop who's a long way from his own jurisdiction. The shocking answer: Two child murders, separated by thousands of miles, have one thing in common - the killer.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    It's classic Temperence Brennan, only new!


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes.


    Any additional comments?

    The ending will throw you for a loop! This book ties together some loose ends from a long time ago, and sees Slidell, Ryan, and Brennan working together. Good plot, good set up, great ending. Really.

    Toru, a quiet and preternaturally serious young college student in Tokyo, is devoted to Naoko, a beautiful and introspective young woman, but their mutual passion is marked by the tragic death of their best friend years before. Toru begins to adapt to campus life and the loneliness and isolation he faces there, but Naoko finds the pressures and responsibilities of life unbearable.

    Would you try another book from Haruki Murakami and/or James Yaegashi?

    Murakami yes, Yaegashi, no.


    What could Haruki Murakami have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    I don't know, I haven't been able to listen due to all the breathing. I'm sure the book is fine, as I adore Murakami books.


    What didn’t you like about James Yaegashi’s performance?

    I can hear every breath he takes. It's so distracting and irritating that I can't listen to this book!


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Anger that I wasted a credit on a recording I can't listen to!
