Quatrième de couverture
It's the second-to-last day of archaeological field school. Dr Temperance Brennan's students are working on a site of prehistoric graves on an island in South Carolina, when a decomposing body is uncovered in a shallow grave.
The skeleton is articulated, the bone fresh and the vertebrae still connected by soft-tissue; the remains are encased in rotted fabric and topped by wisps of blond hair.
Dental remains and skeletal gender and race indicators suggest that the deceased is a middle-aged white male - but who was he and what does the unusual fracture of the sixth cervical vertebra signify?
While Tempe is trying to piece together the evidence, her personal life is thrown into turmoil. When a bullet puts Tempe's estranged husband in hospital, her response complicates her relationship with Detective Andrew Ryan.
Before long, another body is discovered - Tempe is drawn deeper into a shocking investigation, set to challenge her entire view of humanity...
