About the Author

Kathy Reichs is the author of nineteen New York Times bestselling novels and the coauthor, with her son, Brendan Reichs, of six novels for young adults. Like the protagonist of her Temperance Brennan series, Reichs is a forensic anthropologist—one of fewer than one hundred and fifteen ever certified by the American Board of Forensic Anthropology. A professor in the Department of Anthropology at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte, she is a former vice president of the American Academy of Forensic Sciences and serves on the National Police Services Advisory Council in Canada. Reichs’s own life, as much as her novels, is the basis for the TV show Bones, one of the longest-running series in the history of the Fox network.

Linda Emond's film credits include Stop Loss, North Country, and Across the Universe. Television credits include The Sopranos, all four Law & Orders, and American Experience: John & Abigail Adams. On Broadway she has performed in 1776 and Life x 3 (Tony nomination & Outer Critics Circle Award) and Off-Broadway in Tony Kushner's Homebody/Kabul (Obie & Lucille Lortel Awards).

“Bones in Her Pocket” is a novella by Kathy Reichs, featuring her favorite protagonist Temperance Brennan. The entire tale fits onto 2 CDs (audio) or 64 pages (printed / electronic), BUT it contains most of the things that readers of Ms. Reichs full-sized novels enjoy. The discovery of an unidentified corpse (or more likely, just a skeleton). Interaction with the local police department, in this case Charlotte / Mecklenburg, North Carolina. An unusual discovery while reviewing the bones in the laboratory / morgue. AND, the realization that Dr. Brennan has placed herself in a hazardous situation by investigating alone on site, rather than waiting for the appropriate police to handle or assist with the situation. It even concludes with the traditional look into the “Case Files of Dr. Temperance Brennan”. There's not a lot of space in this book to get into Dr. Brennan's personal life (although it is touched upon), let alone advance it. AND, there are lot fewer nodes and stops along the pathway of plot from discovery to resolution – since this tale is less than 20% of the size of her regular novels, that shouldn't be a surprise. Rather, the amount of familiar items that DO make their way into the tale was more surprising! It's worth the look-see for fans of Kathy Reichs, and might even provide a nice peek into the series for non-regular readers. RATING: 4 1/2 stars, rounded down to 4 stars.

This is my first Audio Book. I have read the 1st 5 of her books. The advantage was I put in my car CD player and listened while traveling. This was a convenience. However I prefer to read the books myself. Otherwise very satisfied. If you like Kathy Reichs then this book is highly recommended by me.
