Bones to Ashes

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".

Publisher's Summary

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".

Though Tempe tries to be rational, she is flooded by memories of her best friend, and wonders whether this skeleton, clearly of a girl who's been dead for decades, could possibly be Evangelina's. At the same time, Tempe's love interest, Ryan, is investigating the deaths of two young girls and the disappearance of another three. Are the cases related? Tempe uses the most recent advances in forensic linguistics to identify the old skeleton, while Ryan investigates the possibility of some kind of serial predator at work now.

Flesh and bone: investigate more of Tempe Brennan's forensic cases.

What the Critics Say

"With her usual blend of cutting-edge forensic science, nail-biting suspense and characters that pop off the page, Reichs, who's vice president of the American Academy of Forensic Scientists and the producer of Fox's Bones, has produced another winner in one of the genre's most satisfying series." (Publishers Weekly)

    "Not a Good Listen"

    The reader is terrible -- her attempt at different voices detracts from what little story line there is. This was one of the books, unabridged yet, that I couldn't bother to finish.

    "Fun read related to Atlantic Canada"

    I was partially drawn to this book because of it's setting in Atlantic Canada, where I live. It proved to be a fun read that combined authentic Acadian history with some storytelling to create a very enjoyable read.
