Bones Are Forever

Entree ****of *****
The Temperance Brennan books by Kathy Reichs are all good solid, novels and Bones are Forever is no exception.
Back again in Montreal, the discovery of three dead babies hidden in secret alcoves of an apartment send Brennan and her partner, Andrew Ryan on the search for their missing mother. Seeking a prostitute is not as easy as one might think, and their search leads them from Montreal to Edmonton where they pair up with Brennan’s one time ex-lover, Sergeant Oliver Hasty. The discovery of another body, a drug dealing violent pimp, and a still missing mother lead the group from Edmonton to Yellowknife, deep in the Far North of Canada. Once the center of a gold rush, Yellowknife now is home to diamond mines, and controversy over the environmental concerns of the caribou. Brennan once again heads off once too often to follow a lead on her own and ends up dumped by barrels of arsenic in a diamond mine. The forensics are fascinating and the clues to the denouement are a little more obvious here than in some of the other books.
