Devil Bones : (Temperance Brennan 11) Hardback
by Kathy Reichs
Part of the Temperance Brennan series
An underground chamber is exposed in a seedy, dilapidated house.
In the dark cellar, a ritualistic display is revealed: a human skull rests on a cauldron, surrounded by slain chickens and bizarre figurines.
Called to the scene is forensic anthropologist Dr Temperance Brennan.
Bone architecture suggests that the skull is that of a young, black female.
But how and when did she die? Just as Tempe is closing in on answers, another body is discovered, a headless corpse carved with Satanic symbols.
As local vigilantes begin a witch-hunt, Tempe struggles to contain her emotions.
But the eventual truth proves more shocking than even she could have imagined.
