Publisher's summary

A new story featuring forensic anthropologist Temperance Brennan - from #1 New York Times best-selling author and FOX TV’s Bones producer, Kathy Reichs.

When a fly-covered canvas bag floats to the surface of North Carolina’s Mountain Island Lake, forensic anthropologist Tempe Brennan is called to the scene. Animal remains? Or could this be related to bone fragments from a human male found nearby?

To Tempe’s surprise, the decomposed body indicates the person was a female young adult. The profile fits the description of a missing graduate student named Edith Blankenship. Was Blankenship murdered? If so, why?

Blankenship’s body turned up on an artist colony where an eco-radical named Herman Blount has been squatting. Blount has posted online rants threatening to blow up a power station he says is polluting the area. Is Blount capable of violence?

Blankenship was a loner, but she proved a dedicated advocate for birds at UNC–Charlotte and the Carolina Raptor Center. Did Blankenship’s passion lead her into danger? Alongside Detective “Skinny” Slidell, Tempe puts life on hold until she discovers the truth behind Blankenship’s death. But Tempe’s own passion for crime solving will lead her into danger of her own.

Bones in Her Pocket is an exhilarating new installment in the Temperance Brennan series.

Thank you for the highlight of puppy mills

Puppy mills are worldwide and not many people knows how the operate and the very, very sad conditions these animals are kept in. So from me, a big THANK YOU to Ms Reichs for brining this up in her book.

Always a ripping good yarn

I especially love the accurate forensic descriptions that go along with our heroine’s narrative. A bit gruesome, but true to science.

A great short story

Bones in Her Pocket is a great short story that leads us up to the events in Bones of the Lost. If you love dogs you might get a bit squeamish. Tempe investigates an illegal puppy mill in North Carolina after the bones she examines leads her there. A murder of an animal rights activist is investigated. Well narrated by Linda Emond.

Good for a short story

Would you listen to Bones in Her Pocket again? Why?

No because the mystery has already been solved.

What other book might you compare Bones in Her Pocket to and why?

Any other full length Kathy Riechs story. I felt like I was getting the same format, style, etc as her novels. Even though it was short it was still a great story.

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

The accents of the characters
