This book is # 18 in the Temperance Brennan series. This book does well as a standalone novel. It is a bit easier to understand when read in order with the given series.
Temperence Brennan has another string of murders that get her into a situation again in this current installment of the police procedural series. It starts off with the sinister crime and victim, making all who read it scared from the start.
My love for the books and the characters has not changed. I am however, at a place where I feel the storyline is getting a bit too regular. I want Temperance to choose a man, be more aware of what she is doing, and maybe show more character development after all these books. Otherwise, it is a good mystery novel to read. I give it a 3/5 Kitty's Paws UP!
