GRAVE SECRETS by Kathy Reichs

MONDAY MOURNING by Kathy Reichs
MYSTERY THRILLER
Released: June 15, 2004

"Knowledgeable and brave enough to outgore Patricia Cornwell, Reichs (Bare Bones, 2003, etc.) still can't balance her love of science—think carbon-dating for dummies—with her passion for Grand Guignol. Some sassy repartee, but mostly lots and lots of bodies."
The freezing Montreal winter turns even colder when blue-eyed cop Andrew Ryan is too busy mounting a sting operation and squiring a fetching youngster around to pay much attention to the forensic anthropologist who's his sometime squeeze. Read full book review >
