    When the skeleton of a young girl, not yet a teenager, is discovered in Acadia, Canada, Tempe Brennan is reminded of Evangelina, her best friend in her preteen years, who was mysteriously taken away when she was 12. Evangelina was from strange and faraway Acadia. She was named after Evangeline in the Longfellow poem, and loved poetry. Tempe found her exotic and glamorous, and then suddenly she was gone, and Tempe was told not to try to find her, that she was "dangerous".

    Overall

    This book has an average plot with shallow character development. Another downside is the heavy reliance on the French language which is then translated to English. Those who enjoy the scientific exploration of various forensics fields will love the technical aspects of the story; those who dont, will be extremely bored. Having lived in the Miramichi area; I found the Acadian stereotyping a bit ridiculous. In short, large chunks of this book shouldve been edited to make a tighter more suspenseful story line, the plot drags and the overall narrative is only mildly entertaining.
