Review: The Bone Code by Kathy Reichs

Forensic anthropologist Temeprance Brennen is back in another twisty page turner from New York Times Bestselling author Kathy Reichs. This time around a hurricane has hit the two Carolinas. Two bodies wash up and the case is a bit too similar to a cold case that Brennan worked on in Quebec. The two must be linked, but proving it will be the hard part. Meanwhile, a flesh eating bacteria is on the loose in Charleston, striking fear into well, everyone. 

And then it seems the bacteria might just be linked to the murders ...

This was a twisty page-turner with short chapters, plenty of cliffhangers and lots of twists. Although an enjoyable read, I didn't love it as much as I Reich's previous novel, and I felt that parts of the story could have been handled better--such as the death masks. On the whole though, it's an entertaining little read from a crime writer with a genuine interest in her subject matter and a good sense of humour which finds its way onto the page on occasions.

Recommended. 

Thank you to Simon and Schuster Australia for my copy of The Bone Code.
