Speaking in Bones by Kathy Reichs

3.0 out of 5 stars -- This #18 in the long-running series featuring forensic anthropologist Temperance Brennan focuses on the evil that can happen when religious zealots hold sway in a small town.

Tempe hears a very disturbing audio recording that sets her on the hunt for a missing woman, 18 year-old Cora Teague, and uncovers a much larger horror when pieces of an unidentified body turn up in various remote locations. With no DNA or fingerprints, Tempe and her colleagues are frustrated by an uncooperative family and another murder. Why does no one seem to be looking for this girl who is either victim or killer.

This wasn't my favorite of this author's books as the subject and complexity of the case requires a lot of "tell". Ordinarily I love all these details, but this was more psychiatric than forensic. I'm sure fans will still want to read it. I look forward to #19.

Thank you to NetGalley and Random House Publishing Group for the e-book ARC to review.
