I expected more from this novel. I read the first book in the series and really enjoyed it. Even though I am not a fan of the TV show Bones, I wanted to give the author a fair shot.
I was actually somewhat bored while reading the book. It seemed to me that Ms Reichs video taped her idea for a book. The she sat down in front of her word processor and typed, literally, everything she saw or heard on the video tape. Far too much superfluous information to maintain my interest.
I also felt the storyline was disjointed. Yes, she does bring it all together in the last 50 pages, but the individual plot lines were too far askew. Had the different storyline been better written, it might have scored 4.5 stars. To me, this is a less than skilled attempt at a novel. My wife has read all of her books and enjoyed them. I will give Ms Reichs the benefit of the doubt and read another.
