Kathy Reichs - Hétfő ​csont nélkül
Egy ​montreali pizzéria pincéjéből három fiatal lány csontváza kerül elő. Tempe Brennan megoldatlan gyilkosságokat sejt, miközben a sekély sírhantba temetett maradványokat vizsgálja, annak ellenére, hogy a jó állapotú csontok csak kevés használható nyomot szolgáltatnak. Tempe-nek nem csupán a gyilkossági csoport egy prominens tagjának makacsságával kell megküzdenie, aki szerint a csontok már évszázadok óta itt hányódnak, hanem az égszínkék szemű Andrew Ryan nyomozóval folytatott viszonyával is, amely kényes fordulóponthoz érkezett. Amikor azonban a radiokarbon vizsgálat igazolja Tempe megérzését, hogy a holttestek mellett heverő rejtélyes antik gombok ellenére a gyilkosságok a közelmúltban történtek, az antropológusnőnek még azelőtt meg kell találnia a gyilkost, hogy az újra lesújthatna. Maga Tempe és elrontott házassága elől hozzá menekülő régi barátnője is céltáblává válik. Kathy Reichs, a helyszínelős thrillerek királynője ezúttal sem okoz csalódást olvasóinak ezzel a feszült, tragikus fordulatoktól sem mentes regénnyel, amelyet szokás szerint egyedi humorával fűszerez.

Kathy Reichs - Bones ​to Ashes
Under ​the microscope, the outer bone surface is a moonscape of craters... 'Preliminary diagnosis?' 'Deformity of the bone. Maybe. Cortical destruction on a metacarpal. Maybe. Localised infection? Systemic disease process? Postmortem destruction, either purposeful or natural? A combination of the above? I don't have a diagnosis...' The skeleton is that of a young girl, no more than fourteen years old - and forensic anthropologist Dr Temperance Brennan is struggling to keep her emotions in check. Coroner Yves Bradette is being evasive, insisting the bones are ancient and of no interest. But it doesn't quite add up, and a frustrated Tempe is convinced that Bradette is hiding something... It's not Tempe's case; she's overwhelmed with more urgent work in the lab... But the nagging in her subconscious won't let up. A memory triggered, deep in her hindbrain - the disappearance of a childhood friend; no warning, no explanation... Working on instinct, Tempe takes matters into her own hands. But she couldn't have predicted where this case would lead, or the horrors it would eventually uncover... Can Tempe maintain a professional distance as the past catches up with her in this, her most deeply personal case yet?

In ​the acclaimed author’s thrilling new novel, Brennan is at the top of her game in a battle of wits against the most monstrous adversary she has ever encountered. Unexpectedly called in to the Charlotte PD’s Cold Case Unit, Dr. Temperance Brennan wonders why she’s been asked to meet with a homicide cop who’s a long way from his own jurisdiction. The shocking answer: Two child murders, separated by thousands of miles, have one thing in common—the killer. Years ago, Anique Pomerleau kidnapped and murdered a string of girls in Canada, then narrowly eluded capture. It was a devastating defeat for her pursuers, Brennan and police detective Andrew Ryan. Now, as if summoned from their nightmares, Pomerleau has resurfaced in the United States, linked to victims in Vermont and North Carolina. When another child is snatched, the reign of terror promises to continue—unless Brennan can rise to the challenge and make good on her second chance to stop a psychopath. But Brennan will have to draw her bitter ex-partner out of exile, keep the local police and feds from one another’s throats, and face more than just her own demons as she stalks the deadliest of predators into the darkest depths of madness. In Bones Never Lie, Kathy Reichs never fails to satisfy readers looking for psychological suspense that’s more than skin-deep

Halálos ellenségek. Tory és barátai még hozzá sem szoktak a félresikerült orvosi kísérlet nyomán kialakult rendkívüli képességeikhez, amikor arról értesülnek, hogy be akarják zárni szüleik munkahelyét, a Loggerhead szigeten működő LIRI intézetet. Ez azt jelentené, hogy a Fertőzötteknek életük legkeményebb kihívásával kellene szembenézniük: az elválással. Amikor Tory tudomást szerez Anne Bonny, a híres kalóznő évszázadok óta elveszett kincséről, a falka kockázatos tervet sző. Útjuk váratlan akadályokhoz, ördögi csapdákhoz, és rémisztő földalatti alagutakhoz vezet. Csakhogy kiderül, mások is kutatnak a kincs után, ezért a hajsza könnyen végzetessé válhat. De hőseink jól tudják: az elveszett kincs megtalálásához, az intézmény és barátságuk megmentéséhez dörzsölt, erős és összeszokott falkára van szükség! A Dr Csont - regényeivel világhírűvé vált írónő a Virals- Fertőzöttek sorozat második kötetében sem takarékoskodik az izgalmakkal, amelyeket szokása szerint fanyar humorával fűszerez. A kalózok szerelmeseinek is ajánlott regény, önmagában, kerek egészként is olvasható.

A munkájához szüksége van Tempe segítségére, noha kapcsolatuk a nő exférjének felbukkanása miatt a végéhez közelít. Lehet, hogy a csontváz csak egy újabb az ifjú áldozatok sorában? Vagy Tempe túlreagálja a helyzetet, és nincs is kapcsolat az ügyek közt? Megérzéseit követve ismét saját kezébe veszi a nyomozást, miközben magánéleti viharai közt lavírozva próbálja elkerülni a teljes összeomlást. A kutatás eredménye azonban felkészületlenül éri. Vajon fent tudja tartani szakmai távolságtartását és meg tudja oldani az ügyet, vagy végképp maga alá temeti őt a múlt?

In the center of the shrine, there is the skull of a teenage girl. Meanwhile, on a nearby lakeshore, the headless body of a teenage boy is found by a man walking his dog. Nothing is clear -- neither when the deaths occurred, nor where. Was the skull brought to the cellar or was the girl murdered there? Why is the boy's body remarkably well preserved? Led by a preacher turned politician, citizen vigilantes blame devil worshippers and Wiccans. They begin a witch hunt, intent on seeking revenge. Forensic anthropologist Temperance Brennan -- "five-five, feisty, and forty-plus" -- is called in to investigate, and a complex and gripping tale unfolds in this, Kathy Reichs's eleventh taut, always surprising, scientifically fascinating mystery. With a popular series on Fox -- now in its third season and in full syndication -- Kathy Reichs has established herself as the dominant talent in forensic mystery writing.
