Overview

A new story featuring forensic anthropologist Temperance Brennan—from #1 New York Times bestselling 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.

“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.
