BOOK REVIEW

GRAVE SECRETS by Kathy Reichs

BOOK REVIEW

BOOK REVIEW

BONES OF THE LOST by Kathy Reichs
FICTION & LITERATURE
Released: Aug. 27, 2013

206 BONES by Kathy Reichs
MYSTERY THRILLER
Released: Aug. 1, 2009

"Nearly as many plots as there are bones in the body, some to please medical pedants, some to appease ghouls, and some to show off the smart-mouth repartee Tempe (Devil Bones, 2008, etc.) has been indulging in since she got her own TV series on Fox."

BOOK REVIEW

FLASH AND BONES by Kathy Reichs
MYSTERY THRILLER

DEADLY DÉCISIONS by Kathy Reichs

FATAL VOYAGE by Kathy Reichs
MYSTERY THRILLER
Released: July 17, 2001
