Spider Bones

A Novel

Spider Bones

Kathy Reichs—#1 New York Times bestselling author and producer of the FOX television hit Bones—returns with the thirteenth riveting novel featuring forensic anthropologist Dr. Temperance Brennan.

#1 New York Times bestselling author and producer of the FOX television hit Bones KATHY REICHS ensnares Dr. Temperance Brennan in a chilling puzzle of death and identity—in this superb addition to her “fascinating” (Entertainment Weekly ) forensic series.

One man, two deaths—four decades apart. This story can’t stay buried forever.

 

Shocking discovers await Tempe at the scene of a Quebec drowning: the victim—identified as one John Lowery—was engaged in a bizarre sexual practice when he died; the same John Lowery was an American soldier declared dead in 1968, after a Huey crash in Vietnam. Who then, Tempe sets off to find out, is buried in the vet’s North Carolina grave? Exhuming the remains and having them analyzed at a military compound in Hawaii gets complicated when Tempe’s ex, Detective Andrew Ryan, appears, and a Honolulu ME consults with her on a lethal shark attack—or is it a more sinister predator? Then Lowery’s dog tags turn up linked to yet another corpse, and Tempe must deconstruct a deadly deception that spans years, continents, and too many tragic losses.

Kathy Reichs

Kathy Reichs is the author of nineteen New York Times bestselling novels and the coauthor, with her son, Brendan Reichs, of six novels for young adults. Like the protagonist of her Temperance Brennan series, Reichs is a forensic anthropologist—one of fewer than one hundred and fifteen ever certified by the American Board of Forensic Anthropology. A professor in the Department of Anthropology at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte, she is a former vice president of the American Academy of Forensic Sciences and serves on the National Police Services Advisory Council in Canada. Reichs’s own life, as much as her novels, is the basis for the TV show Bones, one of the longest-running series in the history of the Fox network.
