Publisher's Summary

Violence is escalating, and spilling onto the streets of Montreal. A nine-year-old girl is killed in crossfire on her way to ballet class. The body of a teenager killed in North Carolina is found hundreds of miles away. Forensic anthropologist Dr Temperance Brennan has to pick up the pieces: she knows she shouldn't let emotion get in the way, but when nine-year-old Emily's body is wheeled into the morgue she cannot help but react. An exhumation uncovers the bones of another innocent in a clandestine grave close to a biker gang headquarters. With her boss in hospital and sparring partner Detective Andrew Ryan mysteriously unavailable, Tempe alone begins a perilous investigation into the lawless underworld of organised crime...

Deadly as!

In Deadly Decisions Bones is caught up in an investigation of biker gangs. Her nephew is caught in the middle, Andrew Ryan is arrested for drug dealing, and Tempe is being stalked by a dangerous killer. A great read by Kathy Reichs and Lorelei King delivers a good performance of the audiobook.

A good story line.

Have you listened to any of Lorelei King’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I really like Lorelei King as a reader. Her voice is great and she changes characters with ease.

Any additional comments?

Quite a good story. At first was a little slow but got going and was really good. I recommend it.

Brennan at her best

Once again Kathy Reichs delivers a gritty story with all the tension and excitement of an action thriller. Would a forensic anthropologist get so involved? Probably not. But Tempe's search for the truth ensures she takes a roller coaster ride in the real world of guns and bikers.

Can't go wrong with this author.

It's Kathy Reichs, so you can't really go wrong with this author, adding in one of the best narrators and this makes for a good story.

Predictable

I love anything narrated by Lorelei King so her performance was as ever excellent. The story however not so much. Not a lot seemed to really happen and what did, I found to be predicable and not very exciting. I found myself shouting at Tempe in an attempt to stop her being both introspective and extremely stupid. I also was very disinterested in the detailed descriptions of everything she chose to eat, drink and cook and thought her nephew a spoilt brat. I'm not sure I'll be listening to any more of these.

Bones??

I'm guilty of assuming that the book and the tv program were the same. So I was disappointed, my fault entirely. I'll just have to wait a while and reread remembering the book is not the tv program and visa versa. I'm not saying don't read these books but remember they're not the tv series.

Page turner

Great reading of this pacey story keeps you listening. The upbeat outlook of the first person heroine and the quick fire science keeps the dark content from getting too miserable. Recommended.
