    Temperance Brennan has been asked to examine the corpses of three dead babies in Montreal. It’s a difficult assignment, complicated further by the fact that her long-time flame Detective Ryan is investigating the infants’ mother, a former (and possibly current) prostitute. When the woman flees to Edmonton, the investigation is joined by Royal Canadian Mounted Police sergeant with whom Tempe had an ill-advised fling over a decade earlier. The dissonant team heads to remotest Yellowknife - mining country - to pursue an ever more sinister trail.

    What did you like best about Bones Are Forever? What did you like least?

    I am generally a fan of this series, but in this book Brennan was portrayed as having some type of legal authority, the plot was slow, the characters unbelievable. Brennan was arrogant and lacked just plain common sense. This will most likely be my last read of the series.


    What was most disappointing about Kathy Reichs’s story?

    Dr. Brennan's role as psuedo lone ranger detective.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Linda Emond’s performances?

    Yes


    Do you think Bones Are Forever needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    Please don't.

    A deadly multi-vehicle pile-up on San Diego’s historic Cabrillo bridge is thought of as a horrific accident - until Kendra Michaels arrives on the scene and perceives it as something much more sinister. Blind for decades and now sighted, Kendra's unusual skill for observation is highly sought after by both the FBI and CIA. Now her amazing conclusions open up a multi-jurisdictional investigation that once again teams her with the FBI and federal agent Adam Kyle as they investigate a conspiracy so explosive that someone will kill again and again to protect it.

    Kevin says: "Good story. Needs editing."
    "Thoroughly Disappointed"

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    No. Other than the title, I can't find a single positive thing to say about this book.


    Has Sight Unseen turned you off from other books in this genre?

    Yes


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Elisabeth Rodgers?

    I don't know, but the range of her voice is not suited for the multiple characters. I often had to go backup to figure out who was talking.


    Was Sight Unseen worth the listening time?

    No. Absolutely not!


    Any additional comments?

    I have read other things by both authors and this was just plain bad. The storyline was implausible with the main character bossing the police, FBI, and anyone else. The character lines were simply foolish...sentimental woman sexually fantasizing about the Guy. In five years I have never returned a book, this may be my first.
