A collection of short stories featuring Dr Temperance Brennan, from the Sunday Times and New York Times No. 1 bestselling author, Kathy Reichs.

A collection of chilling tales featuring forensic anthropologist Temperance Brennan – including the untold story of her first case.

No matter where she goes, Tempe’s cases make for the most gripping reading.

Dr Temperance Brennan thought she’d seen it all until she came across Bones in Her Pocket in the foothills of North Carolina.

Down in the Everglades Tempe investigates Swamp Bones­ – a grisly discovery in the stomach of an eighteen-foot Burmese python.

In the heights of Mount Everest a frozen corpse means Bones On Ice.

And First Bones gets under Tempe’s skin with the untold story of her first case and her decision to become a forensic anthropologist.

Reviews

Reichs’ own experiences shine through at all times and she writes with an authority that few can match, but these are not dry takes from a textbook. Even in the middle of death at its most gruesome, life finds a way to shine through.
