    It's June in Montreal, and Dr. Temperance Brennan, who has left a shaky marriage back home in North Carolina to take on the challenging assignment of Director of Forensic Anthropology for the province of Quebec, looks forward to a relaxing weekend in beautiful Quebec City. First, though, she must stop at a newly uncovered burial site in the heart of the city. The remains are probably old and only of archeological interest, but Tempe must make sure they're not a case for the police. One look at the decomposed and decapitated corpse, stored neatly in plastic bags, tells her she'll spend the weekend in the crime lab.

    Would you try another book from Kathy Reichs and/or Barbara Rosenblat?

    NO!


    What was most disappointing about Kathy Reichs’s story?

    The storyline was as expected, slightly predictable and detailed murder mystery.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Barbara Rosenblat?

    Anyone with a less nasal voice.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    If it were read as a book and not listened to would have been satisfactory.


    Any additional comments?

    At one point in this book the narrator intones

    Research scientist Dr. Marina Singh is sent to Brazil to track down her former mentor, Dr. Annick Swenson, who seems to have disappeared in the Amazon while working on an extremely valuable new drug. The last person who was sent to find her died before he could complete his mission. Plagued by trepidation, Marina embarks on an odyssey into the insect-infested jungle in hopes of finding answers to the questions about her friend's death, her company's future, and her own past.

    F. B. Herron says: "Do yourself a favor and listen to this book!"
    "Good book, terrible ending"
    Overall

    I really enjoyed this book right up until the very last chapter. The descriptions and character development are wonderful. It feels like the author just gave up on the story line and decided the book was simply over.
