    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.

    Story
    Would you try another book from Kathy Reichs and/or Linda Emond?

    I've loved earlier Kathy Reichs books, but this one didn't do anything for me. It's about 40% plot/action, and about 60% question after question, recapping and emphasizing the various insolvable mysteries. I solved it, pretty quickly, and then slogged through hours of things like:
    did Jim love Kathy?
    did Mike know that Jim loved Kathy?
    did Kathy love Jim?
    did Sara know?
    until I was saying
    why am I still listening to this?
    how much longer is this book?
    will it ever end?

    Also, I got some history lessons about NASCAR. I like the lessons about forensics. Car racing, not so much.

    I'll probably buy future books from Reichs, but I sincerely hope she starts working more on plot, and less on just wordcount. The characters are interesting, and there are many ways that the stories CAN develop, so why don't we just go ahead and develop something?


    What does Linda Emond bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The narration was good - the speaker was very easy to listen to, and I would definitely listen to her narration again.
