Présentation de l'éditeur

Dr Temperance Brennan and her students are working on a site of prehistoric graves on an island near Charleston, South Carolina, when a decomposing body is uncovered in a shallow grave off a lonely beach.

The bone is fresh and the remains are still topped by wisps of hair – it’s a recent burial, and a case Tempe must take.

Tempe determines that the deceased is a middle-aged white male - but who was he? Why was he buried in a clandestine grave? And what does an unusual vertical fracture of one of the vertebrae signify?

While Tempe is trying to piece together the evidence, her personal life is thrown into turmoil. But before long, another body is discovered - and Tempe finds herself drawn deeper into a shocking investigation which will challenge her entire view of humanity.

Sans surprise, on sait à quoi s'attendre, du bon polar qui fait parfois se dresser les cheveux sur la tête, qui fait un peu peur, rien d'exceptionnel mais des valeurs sûres... Celui-là à mon avis ne se démarque pas des autres, cette série est comme toutes , c'est plus ou moins la même chose d'un livre à l'autre, mais ça se lit bien, les personnages sont attachants et je trouve que ce qui marche c'est que les héros ont toujours entre 40 et 50 ans, ce qui donne une prestance particulière aux personnages...et différencie un peu ce roman de la mode des médecins légistes omniprésents dans les séries TV et au ciné...

J'adore le genre policier, le bon thriller dont on tourne les pages avec angoisse et délectation et je me suis donc attaquée à mon premier Kathy Reichs pleine d'allant et l'esprit ouvert!Bon, au final ....rien d'exceptionnel! C'est un roman correct, qu'on lit facilement mais dont on devine trop rapidement l'intrigue. Je ne parle pas en plus du jargon professionnel dont l'auteur semble se gargariser, c'est lourdingue!Bref, je suis bien loin du grand moment que je comptais passer et je pense que c'était mon premier et dernier essai avec cet auteur!

HASH(0xa2e9d984) étoiles sur 5 16 Little Indians 24 septembre 2006
Par Marc Ruby™ - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
While Kathy Reichs' work bears undeniable similarities to Patricia Cornwell's, it is quite clear that Reichs has managed to find a balance between the private life of Tempe Brennan and Brennan's career as a forensic anthropologist serving in Quebec and North Carolina. Which means that the reader spends less time thinking about the heroine's propensity for dysfunctional relationships and more time enjoying a plot in which forensic detection plays a major role. Indeed, Brennan's relationships aren't particularly dysfunctional, just complicated. Which is a relief sometimes.

When an instructor heads for greener pastures, Tempe is asked to teach a field school in South Carolina. It's a very dull dig that has earned the antagonism of the builder who is impatient to develop the area. But other than that, the burial site is interesting, but not remarkable. Until, that is, one of the bodies found turns out to be much more recent. Her arms slightly twisted by an old friend, the archeologist consents to handle the case, which presents several unusual features, but no real clues. But the body count begins to mount, and the mysterious deaths point to something more than normally sinister.

On the personal side, Tempe's life is equally tempestuous. She had planned to have Ryan, her lover, show up to enjoy some time in the Carolinas, but the sudden appearance of her ex-husband complicates matters by no small amount. Ryan has realized that Tempe is avoiding any real commitment and Tempe discovers that her feelings for her ex-husband Pete are conflicted. When Pete is shot Tempe becomes completely distracted by her reaction. So not only is the trio going through a rough period, but Tempe comes dangerously close to missing the trail of a deadly killer.

As I've already said, Reich's seems to have found the balance point between emotional involvement and the very vine forensic detective work required for a book like this to be a forensic detective novel. This is a pleasant relief at a time where writers in popular fiction seem to prefer having their heroines go over the deep end rather than suffering the agonies of actually advancing the plot. As long as Reichs can keep this up I will remain a dedicated fan.

HASH(0xa2e9dd8c) étoiles sur 5 Shine the Light on Temperance 16 juillet 2006
Par Ben F. Small - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
Little did Temperance Brennan realize when she led a student archaelogy class on an ancient Native American dig on an island off Charlesston, SC, that she was going to unearth more recent remains. Bugs, shells and the smell of death. Then another body is found, this one hanging headless in the woods. But both bodies bear the same strange marks.Tempe's asked by the coroner, a sick friend, to assist a county sheriff, a hard-boiled good ole boy no doubt last seen sweating Paul Neuman in "Cool Hand Luke." Convincing this sheriff that these cases are murder and that there are likely more bodies to be found will be no small task.

Enter Andrew Ryan and Tempe's estranged husband Pete, who are all bunking together in a friend's beach house. No three-way here. Just taunting, teasing and a desperate need for Valium.

But this is no Tempe-in-trouble-Ryan-to-the-rescue formulaic treatment. Ryan plays a bit role, actually more of a foil for Pete than a white knight for Tempe. And it's a nice twist.

For Tempe's got her hands full uncovering a pattern of crimes so horrific Anderson Cooper would slobber all over himself.

This is a return to Kathy Reichs at her best. The plotting is intricate and thorough, the pace whirlwind and the style less clipped than her last two books. And the characters are better developed. From Tempe herself; to Emma, her sick friend; to the county sheriff, and especially Pete, these characters are full and real. Even the dog is a well rounded character. I, for one, am celebrating that Kathy Reichs is back. Keep it up Kathy; you're best in class.

HASH(0xa2e9db94) étoiles sur 5 Reichs knows the low country... 29 juillet 2007
Par Cynthia K. Robertson - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
I have always enjoyed being on vacation and reading a novel set in my vacation destination. So it was only natural that I devoured Break No Bones by Kathy Reichs, written about the low country of Charleston, South Carolina.

Temperance Brennan is a forensic anthropologist who sidelights as a professor at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte. She takes a group of students to Dewees Island for a two week field course. Their goal is to excavate several Indian burial mounds before the area is to be developed. In the course of their digging, they uncover remains that were buried within the last five years. Brennan is friends with the Charleston County coroner, Emma Rousseau, but Rousseau reveals that she's very ill and asks for Brennan's assistance with the autopsy. Brenna finds disturbing marks on the skeleton. Several unrelated remains are later discovered in other locations with the same marks, and Brennan starts looking for the common denominator.

Reichs is knowledgeable about the low country. Charleston is a very charming city, but not without some warts. She knows not only the Holy City, but also, the surrounding areas--which she makes liberal use of in Break No Bones. Reichs also provides an interesting personal triangle. Brennan has started an affair with Canadian Inspector Andrew Ryan in previous books, despite the fact that she is not yet divorced from her handsome but unfaithful husband, Peter. But the circumstances in Break No Bones will make Brennan question her choices.

One of the things I like most about Reichs' writing is her knowledge of forensic anthropology. In Break No Bones, Brennan gives the reason for her career choice. "In my view, death in anonymity is the ultimate insult to human dignity....While I cannot make the dead alive again, I can reunite victims with their names, and give those left behind some measure of closure." Sometimes, she can also find the cause of death. Although those are the words of Temperance Brennan, they're obviously the beliefs of Kathy Reichs.

Now that I've read many of Reichs' later books in this series, it's time to go back and start at the beginning.

HASH(0xa2e9de70) étoiles sur 5 Temperance digs up an unexpected surprise. 25 mars 2007
Par frumiousb - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
I had kind of given up on Kathy Reichs after her first few books. Although I liked the forensic element in the novels, I tended to find her writing formulaic and a little bit reductive in terms of characters. I decided to give her books another go after becoming addicted to the television show Bones.

There were some pleasant surprises for me in Break No Bones. Reichs has clearly developed her feel for character since the first two books. I didn't love the oh-too-cute two men in one house routine, but still-- Tempe and her beaus are well-rounded and there was a lot of even believable dialogue.

The plot left me a little bit cold. It irritated me a little bit that even though Reichs has a main character who has an excuse to be digging up bodies she still needed to have her accidentally find a corpse. It doesn't stretch likelihood so much as rip it to shreds.

Anyhow, it was not too bad. Recommended if you like forensic mysteries but simply cannot stomach any more Scarpetta.

HASH(0xa2ea2240) étoiles sur 5 Wanted to Love It... 11 septembre 2006
Par Wendy Kaplan - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
But I just couldn't. I have read every book Dr. Reichs has ever written, starting with the fabulous Deja Dead. Somewhere mid-series, Reichs developed a sort of noir Mickey Spillane type of rat-a-tat prose, with hopeless bon mots, rapid-fire one-liners and unbelievable quips, sort of like Joe Friday on speed. I have mentioned this before in earlier reviews.

But finally, in Break No Bones, the Clever Patter outweighs the plot to such an extent that I found myself hopelessly confused, more than once, about just what was going on. I never really engaged in the mystery, caught up as I was in the endless, endless groaners (e.g., "Is he talking?" "Like a teenager on a cell phone.") By the last few chapters, I had no interest in who did what to whom or who was the real perp. I just wanted the book to end.

As for Temperance's personal life, all of a sudden, her estranged (and I could swear, divorced) husband Pete is a major figure in her life...and she shares a beach cottage with him AND her lover Ryan, and she and Ryan share a bedroom? Excuse me? What planet are we from?

All I can say is I respect and admire Kathy Reichs to such an extent that I find it painful to give one of her books a bad review. I will keep reading the series because of that admiration. But this one was simply over the top.
