In the twelfth novel from #1 New York Times bestselling author Kathy Reichs, forensic anthropologist Temperance Brennan finds herself buried alive after being accused of mishandling the autopsy of a Canadian heiress. There are 206 bones in the human body. Forensic anthropologists know them intimately, and can use them to recreate every kind of violent end. Tempe wakes up to discover that she is enclosed in a kind of very small, very dark, very cold space. She is bound, hands to feet, and there’s something wrong with her ankle. Unsure of where she is, Tempe slowly begins to work out what has happened… When the body of a missing heiress was discovered, Temperance Brennan and Lieutenant Ryan accompanied the remains from Montreal to the Chicago morgue. Their trip was soon interrupted when an incriminating phone call accused Tempe of mishandling the autopsy—and the case. But before Tempe could face her accuser, the one man with information about the call died, and Tempe was left in the dark. As the facts slowly slot into place, Tempe wonders who wants her dead, or at least out of the way, and why? Pulse-pounding, electrifying, and seamlessly weaving between past and present, 206 Bones describes the incredible devastation that occurs when forensic evidence is sabotaged in the lab.

206 Bones is an anthology of poems and selected artwork by British writer Nina Bhadreshwar based on a chronicle of grieving and a love/hate relationship with California. As a child, art and poetry were her first creative endeavours; as a young woman, poetry and graffiti art formed the basis of her magazine, The Real State, formed in 1992 which catalyzed an adventure of grace that continues. 'The ghettos and injustices of Cali were my calling then and still are. I have tried to grow out of it but, the older I get, the deeper the roots grow. A newborn baby has 242 bones; a fully grown adult has 206. 206 Bones is about my coming of age and about all the breaks and scars which made this body. It's also about me being a part of California and it being a part of me. I was born in Britain but I was made in California.'

A complex and riveting tale of deceit and murder unfolds in this repackage of the thirteenth thrilling novel in Reichs’s "cleverly plotted and expertly maintained series" (The New York Times Book Review). John Lowery was declared dead in 1968—the victim of a Huey crash in Vietnam, his body buried long ago in North Carolina. Four decades later, Temperance Brennan is called to the scene of a drowning in Hemmingford, Quebec. The victim appears to have died while in the midst of a bizarre sexual practice. The corpse is later identified as John Lowery. But how could Lowery have died twice, and how did an American soldier end up in Canada? Tempe sets off for the answer, exhuming Lowery’s grave in North Carolina and taking the remains to Hawaii for reanalysis—to the headquarters of JPAC, the U.S. military’s Joint POW/ MIA Accounting Command, which strives to recover Americans who have died in past conflicts. In Hawaii, Tempe is joined by her colleague and ex-lover Detective Andrew Ryan (how "ex" is he?) and by her daughter, who is recovering from her own tragic loss. Soon another set of remains is located, with Lowery’s dog tags tangled among them. Three bodies—all identified as Lowery. And then Tempe is contacted by Hadley Perry, Honolulu’s flamboyant medical examiner, who needs help identifying the remains of an adolescent boy found offshore. Was he the victim of a shark attack? Or something much more sinister?

#1 New York Times bestselling author and producer of the Fox hit series Bones, Kathy Reichs returns with an unforgettable new novel featuring forensic anthropologist Tempe Brennan, whose examination of a mysterious hit-and-run victim triggers an investigation into human trafficking. When Charlotte police discover the body of a teenage girl along a desolate stretch of two-lane highway, Temperance Brennan fears the worst. The girl’s body shows signs of foul play. Inside her purse, police find an airline club card bearing the name of prominent local businessman John-Henry Story, who died in a horrific fire months earlier. How did Story and the girl know each other? Was she an illegal immigrant turning tricks? Was she murdered? Was he? Tempe must also examine a bundle of Peruvian dog mummies confiscated by U.S. Customs. A Desert Storm veteran named Dominick Rockett stands accused of smuggling the objects into the country. Could there be some connection between the trafficking of antiquities and the trafficking of humans? As the complications pile on, Tempe must also grapple with personal turmoil. Her daughter, Katy, grieving the death of her boyfriend in Afghanistan, impulsively enlists in the army. Meanwhile, Katy’s father, Pete, is growing frustrated by Tempe’s reluctance to finalize their divorce. As pressure mounts from all corners, Tempe soon finds herself at the center of a conspiracy that extends all the way from South America to Afghanistan and right to the center of Charlotte. A tour de force of imagination, Bones of the Lost is a roller coaster of plot twists, punctuated by Tempe’s fierce wit and forensic know-how. “A genius at building suspense” (New York Daily News), Kathy Reichs is at her brilliant best in this sixteenth installment of the Temperance Brennan series. With the Fox series Bones in its ninth season, Kathy Reichs has reached new heights in suspenseful storytelling.
