This is the third Tempe book I have read, and the first two of the series were well done. Now it seems that we are getting to the level where the author, Kathy Reichs is "churning them out". This is more of a travel guide to Montreal and Quebec than a mystery novel. This is more than descriptive background to bring the locale in focus. This is filler.pages and pages of filler. Based on this book of the series, I will not read anymore even though I love the TV series on which they are based. My money would be more well spent on a street map of Montreal.

    Good as always

    I found out about this series from watching the show Bones. I think they're both fantastic but very different from each other since Tempe is different in each.

    Anyway this was a good story with nice twists... Worth the $8 I paid

    A Good Read

    Great for people wanting to know about how the culture of biker gangs in today society function with law always coming at them. Wasnt as fast paced as Deja Dead till more toward the end, but still another great one. Id recommend it to anyone who likes crime novels

    Highly Recommended

    Enjoyed the book. Reichs does a great job of developing the story and getting the reader excited about what comes next. Book starts a little slow, but picks up speed.

    Favorite so far

    Though I enjoyed the first two books in this series, the third book has been my favorite. In the first book some of the scenes tended to carry on, in this one I felt that she explained the necessary things but did not go into such great detail as to completely loose the reader. The characters keep developing and I can hardly wait to read the next in this series.

    Not My Favorite Reichs Book

    There are too many obvious coincidences in Deadly Décisions. The coincidence makes the ending more predictable, some of the suspenseful chapter endings seemed forced, and Tempe gets herself into situations most smart women would avoid. In spite of these flaws, it's a page turner. The plot is fast-paced, Tempe Brennan is an intelligent, appealing heroine (more likable than Scarpetta), and Montreal is an interesting setting: familiar, yet foreign. If you enjoyed her two previous books, Déja Death and Death du Jour, you'll enjoy Deadly Décisions.
