‘You have an enemy, Dr. Brennan. It is in your interest to learn who placed that call.’
A routine case turns sinister when Dr. Temperance Brennan is accused of mishandling the autopsy of a missing heiress. Someone has made an incriminating accusation that she missed or concealed crucial evidence. Before Tempe can get to the one man with information, he turns up dead. The heiress isn’t the only elderly female to have appeared on Tempe’s gurney recently. Back in Montreal, three more women have died, their bodies brutally discarded. Tempe is convinced there’s a link between their deaths and that of the heiress. But what – or who – connects them? Tempe struggles with the clues, but nothing adds up. Has she made grave errors or is some unknown foe sabotaging her? It soon becomes frighteningly clear. It’s not simply Tempe’s career at risk. Her life is at stake too.
206 Bones is crime and mystery at its best. Accused of mishandling an autopsy, Tempe investigates, but then the man she needs information from turns up dead. Elderly women are turning up dead and Ryan fears that they have a serial killer. Meanwhile tensions are high at the lab in Montreal. A new staff member is causing trouble as she has stars in her eyes and is manipulating cases to make herself look good, at the expense of Tempe and her co-workers. Lorelei King delivers a great performance of the audiobook, and Kathy Reichs has delivered another brilliant novel in the Bones series.
Well read, but not one of the most exciting of her books. Would recommend others to begin with and then this if you become a fan.

As expected this audio book didn't fail in any way. In my option Lorelei King is one of the best narrators out there, and combined with the usual standard of Kathy Reichs writing it made for an excellent book.
First book to listen to, took a bit to get used to the pace but after that it was excellent
