Devil Bones by Kathy Reichs - Audio Book CD  

Brand New: Unabridged  9 Cds

An underground chamber is exposed in a seedy, dilapidated house with sagging trim and peeling paint.

When a careless plumber accidentally knocks through a wall, he is horrified by what he uncovers.

Called to the scene is forensic anthropologist Dr Temperance Brennan. Fighting her claustrophobia, and the unmistakeable sweet, fetid odour of rotting flesh, Tempe descends the precariously steep, makeshift wooden steps.

What awaits her below is a ritualistic display: slain chickens and a goat - and a skull, ghostly pale, rests on a pedestal, the lower jaw missing, the empty orbits starring back at her. The forehead is darkened by an irregular stain the exact red-brown of dried blood, and lined with remnants of desiccated tissue. Two cauldrons stand nearby, beads and antlers suspended overhead.

Age, race and sex indicators confirm the skull as that of a young, black female - but how did she die, and when?

Then, just as Tempe is working to determine the post-mortem interval, another body is uncovered. The corpse is headless, the torso is carved with Satanic symbols. Could there be a connection? Must Tempe face the sickening possibility that Devil-worshippers are sacrificing human victims?

About the Author Kathy Reichs

(From Wikipedia) Kathleen J. "Kathy" Reichs is a forensic anthropologist, an academic, and bestselling writer of mystery novels, who works in the United States and Canada. She is a Professor of anthropology at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte. She divides her time between work for the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner, State of North Carolina, and for the Laboratoire des Sciences Judiciaires et de Médecine Légale for the province of Quebec. She is one of only fifty forensic anthropologists certified by the American Board of Forensic Anthropology and is on the Board of Directors of the American Academy of Forensic Sciences. Her schedule also involves a number of speaking engagements around the world.

She received a B.A. in anthropology from American University in 1972, a M.A. in physical anthropology from Northwestern University in 1972, and a Ph.D. in physical anthropology from Northwestern University in 1975. She has taught at Northern Illinois University, University of Pittsburgh, Concordia University, and McGill University.

She has appeared in Rwanda to testify at the UN Tribunal on Genocide. She has assisted Dr. Clive Snow in an exhumation in the area of Lake Atitlan in the highlands of southwest Guatemala. She was a member of the DMORT (Disaster Mortuary Operational Teams) team to assist at the World Trade Center disaster.


Kathy Reichs has written novels as well as technical books on anthropology and forensics. Her novels have been translated in 30 languages. Her first novel 'Déjà Dead' won the 1997 Arthur Ellis Award for Best First Novel.

The fictional heroine in her novels, Temperance Brennan, is also a forensic anthropologist. Her lifestyle closely mimics that of her creator. A good portion of the novels is based on real life science. Most of the techniques used and technology mentioned are things that Kathy Reichs uses in her real life job. The blood spatter analysis used in Deadly Decisions for instance, is directly from her job. In the novel Grave Secrets she uses her experience from her visit to Guatemala to enhance the story.
