Monday Mourning: (Temperance Brennan 7)
de Kathy Reichs
Three skeletons are found in the basement of a pizza parlour. The building is old, with a colorful past, and Homicide Detective Luc Claudel dismisses the remains as historic. Not his case, not his concern... But Forensic Anthropologist Tempe Brennan has her doubts. Something about the bones of these three young women suggests a different message: murder. A cold case, but Claudel's case nonetheless. Brennan is in Montreal to testify as an expert witness at a trial. Digging up more bones was not on her agenda. And to make matters worse, her sometime-lover Detective Andrew Ryan disappears just as Tempe is beginning to trust him. Soon Tempe finds herself drawn ever deeper into a web of evil from which there may be no escape: three women have disappeared, never to return. And Tempe may be next...
