5.0 étoiles sur 5 Reichs is back in fine form! 5 juillet 2014
Par Sharon E. Cathcart - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié|Commentaire client Vine pour produit gratuit (De quoi s'agit-il?)
I admit it; I'm a long-time fan of Kathy Reichs' Temperance Brennan novels. However, I skipped a couple; the last one I read was just so humdrum that I thought Reichs was tiring of her characters. It was depressing to me, so I didn't read any for a while.

As a result, I missed some of the events referred to in this title ... but that was all right. I found myself not wanting to put the book down this time, just like in the "good old days."

This time, Tempe is asked to help investigate a series of murders that are being committed by a criminal well known to her. In a previous title, this perpetrator (Anique Pomerleau) tried to kill Tempe as well. So, when a set of crimes with a similar MO come up, Brennan is very much interested. Her long-time colleague Andrew Ryan is off mourning the death of his daughter, Lily, but she needs his additional expertise on the case ... so there is that subplot as well.

There are more twists and turns than a Coney Island roller coaster in this book, and the "whodunnit" took me by surprise ... which is always a plus.

It is always difficult for me to review thrillers without employing spoilers, so I hope it will suffice to say that the forensic science in this book is spot-on, the characters and situations interesting, and that Kathy Reichs is back in fine form with this latest book!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Another great Temperance Brennan mystery! 6 juillet 2014
Par Sandy Kay - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié|Commentaire client Vine pour produit gratuit (De quoi s'agit-il?)
I have been reading the Temperance Brennan mystery series since the first book, Deja Dead (Temperance Brennan Novels). I really enjoy the character and I like the forensic anthropology aspect of the mystery. (I also enjoy the TV show, even though it does not follow the books and the character of Brennan is quite different in the two.)

This book will not disappoint the fans of the series. I wouldn't really recommend starting with this book is you haven't read any of the series. The story in this book generally stands alone -- though it seems like it involves a character from Monday Mourning: A Tempe Brennan Novel (Temperance Brennan Novels). I'd have to go back to that book to see if those books share some characters to be sure. In any case, this book doesn't include a lot of Brennan's personal and professional history to bring a new reader up to speed so you will miss a lot of the character even if the story could be read on its own.

The mystery in this book involves some recent murders in Vermont and North Carolina where the killer appears to be someone wanted for murders in Quebec that were investigated by Brennan and Andrew Ryan, her on and off lover. Brennan follows the investigation to Quebec and Vermont while she is also dealing with some issues involving her mother. As is usual for these books, the reader learns some interesting information relating to forensic anthropology while Brennan is working with the detectives to catch a murderer.

I was captivated by this book and read it until I fell asleep and then picked it up when I woke. It is a good thing I started it before a long holiday weekend or I wouldn't have gotten anything else done.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Too much snarkiness to be realistic 19 juillet 2014
Par J. Murray - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié|Commentaire client Vine pour produit gratuit (De quoi s'agit-il?)
I eagerly awaited Kathy Reichs' "Bones Never Lie" (Random House 2014), latest in her series about forensic anthropologist Temperance Brennan's exploits as crime solver extraordinaire. I've read all eighteen books and watched every Bones TV show three times (maybe more--doesn't matter). In this newest, a cold case out of Brennan's Canadian office reignites--a serial killer who avoided capture and disappeared reappears, this time in North Carolina, Brennan's US office locality, which means Tempe gets a second chance to stop this murderer.

One of the traits readers love about Reich's novels is they are procedurals in identifying and decoding forensic details from scraps of evidence--primarily bones. Brennan studies and analyzes and comes up with mind-blowing conclusions all drawn from evidence, facts, and experience. She is part of a team, though it is typically peripheral to the results, almost tangential. In this book, I was disappointed that the crime fighting team--with the exception of Detective Ryan--acted more like a dysfunctional family. The trust and respect that bonds most teams in detective procedurals (such as LJ Sellers Wade Jackson Series and VI McDermid's Kate Brannigan), became backbiting tolerance through Brennan's eyes.

This is intensified by Reich's natural writer's voice--somewhere between superior and selfish, tinged with a moral superiority--

"...hubbub of conversation emanating from fat-glutted brains."

"...queried my health in a syrupy drawl. I assured her I was swell..."

Having said that, I knew this going in and have always loved the books within about a hundred pages. Not so this time. Too much snarkiness and not enough of Brennan's trademark problem-solving. Plus, I don't see any growth in Dr. Tempe Brennan. Detective Andy Ryan has evolved based on his experiences, but Brennan seems immune. I find that hard to believe. Overall--three stars with cautious optimism that the next book will be better.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Strong, Fresh Work, Great Forensics, But Please, Less Cornwell Influence 19 juillet 2014
Par Stephanie De Pue - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié|Commentaire client Vine pour produit gratuit (De quoi s'agit-il?)
BONES NEVER LIE is the seventeenth in the bestselling Dr. Temperance (Tempe) Brennan series by American author Kathy Reichs. It follows on her first sixteen New York Times bestsellers, published at the rate of one a year. The first, DEJA DEAD brought her instant acclaim when it became a New York Times bestseller; she was hyped as a newer, better forensics author than the mega-selling Patricia Cornwell, who's work seemed to be going off. In fact, DEJA DEAD won the 1997 Ellis Award for Best First Novel. Then, after half-a-dozen or so Tempe books, as frequently happens, the series seemed to get a bit tired, and I began reading her only occasionally. Nevertheless, the series was translated to the highly-successful current BONES television series.

Reichs is, of course, an outstanding, best-selling author of forensics mysteries; a Chicago girl who is extremely well-qualified and -backgrounded to be writing such stories. She holds a Ph.D. from Northwestern University. Kathy Reichs, like her fictional creation, Temperance Brennan, is forensic anthropologist for the province of Quebec. She is a former Vice President of the American Academy of Forensic Sciences, serves on the Canadian National Police Services Advisory Council, and is one of only fifty-six forensic anthropologists certified by the American Board of Forensic Anthropology. A professor of anthropology at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte, Dr. Reichs now divides her time between Charlotte and Montreal.

The book at hand opens as Tempe is unexpectedly called in to the Charlotte PD's Cold Case Unit. She can't help but wonder why she's been asked to meet with a homicide cop who's far from his own Vermont jurisdiction. The answer: two child murders, separated by thousands of miles, seem to have one thing in common--the killer. Years ago, in Canada, Anique Pomerleau and her lover kidnapped and murdered a string of girls; he was then killed but she narrowly eluded capture. It was a devastating defeat for her pursuers, Brennan and Montreal police detective Andrew Ryan. Now, suddenly, the serial killer, very unusually, a woman, then thought possibly too much under the influence of her psychotic lover, seems to have resurfaced in the United States, linked to victims in Vermont and North Carolina. Possible further American victims of the Canadian killer are identified. Then another child is snatched in Charlotte. Has Pomerleau followed Tempe there? The psychopath's run of kidnappings and killings looks likely to continue--unless Brennan can make good on her second chance to stop a psychopath. However, to do that, Brennan will have to draw Ryan, her bitter ex-partner out of exile. And keep the local cops and feds in their own corners.

I found one big oddity in the current book; in the initial half-dozen or so Tempe books that I read, Tempe was, like her creator, a Chicago girl and spent her quality time there. Since then, she has somehow become a Southern girl, with a Southern mother. Nevertheless, the good news is, Reichs has come up with an exciting psychological thriller here: I could hardly put the book down. The author's forensics is great: fresh and interesting, as ever; what's more, Brennan's knowledge and intuition have the direct result of helping to solve the case. The author's writing style is swift, lively, witty and humorous in this book. Aside from the inexplicable change in Tempe's birthplace, I've only one complaint: one of the reasons I stopped regularly reading Reichs was that her protagonist Tempe had become too much like Cornwell's protagonist Scarpetta in a way I didn't care for. I've read probably a dozen and a half Cornwells, but felt Scarpetta had become too much the lynchpin, the cause of the murder and mayhem around her. So had Tempe. And it appears that if a psychotic killer followed Tempe to Charlotte, Tempe is still too much the cause of the action rather than simply the solver of the crimes. I don't think detectives should play that role. I have previously read and reviewed, on their websites, Reichs' 206 BONES, BREAK NO BONES, CROSS BONES, DEADLY DECISIONS, DEATH DU JOUR, DEJA DEAD, FATAL VOYAGE and GRAVE SECRETS. And I once saw Reichs speak, live, at the Wilmington, North Carolina's library Mystery Book Fair. She appeared to be a witty, intelligent lively and humorous woman. She uses various North Carolina settings in her work, including, pleasingly enough for me, Wilmington and its beaches, where I now live. So I'm happy to find the writer's work so strong and fresh in the book at hand, but just wish she would not be influenced by Cornwell's worst practices.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Chasing a serial killer 3 juillet 2014
Par Divascribe - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié|Commentaire client Vine pour produit gratuit (De quoi s'agit-il?)
This book is a good continuation of the Temperance Brennan series. It provides a haunting mystery involving the deaths of a number of young girls, and it also gives a glimpse into Tempe's private life -- especially her off-and-on relationship with hunky Montreal police detective Andrew Ryan.

Bodies of young girls are being found in Canada and along the East Coast of the United States, all the way south to Charlotte, N.C., where Tempe works as a medical examiner specializing in the investigation of bones. The girls have been posed, lying on their backs, fully clothed, with their arms arranged at their sides. No obvious cause of death is found; there is no evidence of strangling, sexual assault or beatings.

An old foe of Tempe's, a female killer who got away, is suspected of the killings, but where is she now? And can Tempe convince Andrew Ryan, who's taking leave after the devastating death of his daughter, to come back and work on the case?

I have enjoyed all of Reichs' Temperance Brennan mysteries, and this is no exception. My only negative comment is that the denouement comes quickly, almost casually, after a story that I felt was building up to something much more. Still, that's the way life is sometimes.

The book ended with a surprise that made me smile -- and look forward to the next installment in the series.
