    Book 17 but I read it fine as a standalone

    This is one of the many purchased books I have bought while being in the UK ( the land of reasonable priced books!) So I am a mad fan of the TV series Bones, but have never read a book by Kathy Reichs, and when I saw the cover of this book staring back at me from the shelf in the supermarket I picked it up and read the blurb. That's the sign of a good cover... it caught my eye and drew me to pick it up. NOTE: For those authors who constantly think slapping a few images together and the title - think again. I will not choose to pick up and pay for your book if it has a bad cover. So I picked it up and read the blurb... this is step two to drawing you into purchasing the book. I read what sounded like a mystery that would intrigue me, and I hoped would be a standalone that I could enjoy without getting too confused. Did the book lived up to those expectations... well they did in most respects ( hence the 4 stars not 5) I could follow the story fine, even though this is book 17 in the Bones Series. The mystery was suitably intriguing, and although it kept me guessing for at least 40% of the book, I did pick out the culprit of the crimes from the list of characters introduced in the plot, but I wasn't 100% sure until about 70%. The storyline is steady enough to not become too boring and the procedures are described to help the reader understand the plot without becoming bogged down with technical jargon. But for an author who has written so many books beforehand I found the dialogue quite basic and sometimes the flow was stilted, I actually read this at the same time as another which I was scheduled to review for the blog, and although I kept picking this book up and continuing, I did expect it to grab hold of me and for me to not put it down until I had finished. ( I did do this with the book The Sword of Summer which I bought as a gift for my grandson and thought I best read a few pages to check it was suitable,then ended up buying a copy because I couldn't put it down!) BUT that has not put me off finding book 1 and giving the series read and that is why it has a 4 star from me. Right what did I think? OK now onto the differences I found between the Book and TV series. They are Very Different, so if you are thinking you are going to be reading adventures of Booth and Bones - forget it. Although I love the TV version and of course Series Cast with Emily Deschanel as Dr. Temperance 'Bones' Brennan and David Boreanaz as Special Agent Seeley Booth, and the rest of the supporting cast, the book is completely different, other than having the name of the lead character being the same. In the books Dr. Temperance Brennan is less "Amazingly Smart" about everything, and of course Tempe does not work out of the Smithsonian nor does she have her hip cool team behind her, shes more real I guess is the easiest way of describing the difference, and works with the Law Enforcement agencies in the USA and Canada. Although I have not read any of the previous books and because of this I was not on top of who every character was, that did not impede my enjoyment. In this book Tempe is older, my age I guess with a grown daughter and not with Booth, in fact the character of Booth is not quite the same. In Bones Never lie, there is an ex lover involved who has previously worked with Tempe on a case in the past, and my surmisation from this book is that Detective Andrew Ryan is our "Booth" from the TV series - in a roundabout way. Tempe is called into help with a missing persons investigation, as there are a few similarities to a cold case that both she and Ryan worked on together, 10 years have passed since Anique Pomerleau got away and it seems Tempe has never quite forgotten her and the nightmares still plague Tempe. ( having not read this storyline this is what I have gathered from this book). When the investigating team want input from the other case investigator, our Tempe gets some unexpected help from her mother in finding him, as Ryan is MIA after his daughter died of a drug overdose. This is also a change for me as in the TV series Bone's mother is dead. I liked the 'crazy' Mother character, in fact she is one of the reasons I want to read the first in the series, as there is such a difference in the 'Bones' character from the TV and the Book versions that I want to know more. I guess I will be adding the full "Bones Series" to my TBR

    Another fantastic offering from Kathy

    There has not been a book yet of Kathy Reich that I have not completely enjoyed. And this latest was no exception, I can imagine every scene, every emotion carries me to the next. Like all good writers she pulls me into another world with breathtaking wonder! Thank you Kathy and I can't wait for the next book.
