Bones Are Forever: A Novel

Front Cover
Simon and Schuster, Apr 30, 2013 - Fiction - 304 pages
THE NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER and #1 GLOBE AND MAIL BESTSELLER Producer of the FOX television hit Bones KATHY REICHS exposes the high-stakes, high-danger world of diamond mining as Dr. Temperance Brennan tracks a murder suspect deep into the Northwest Territories.

Beneath a diamond’s perfect surface lies a story of violence and greed. Just like bones. . . .

In a run-down Montreal apartment, Tempe finds the heartbreaking evidence of three innocent lives ended. The landlord says Alma Rogers lives there—is she the same woman who checked into a city hospital as Amy Roberts, then fled before doctors could treat her uncontrolled bleeding? Is she Alva Rodriguez, sought by a man who appeared at the crime scene? Heading up an investigation crackling with the sexual tension of past intimacies, Tempe leads homicide detective Andrew Ryan and police sergeant Ollie Hasty along the woman’s trail and into the farthest reaches of mining country—an unforgiving place where the grim industry of unearthing diamonds exacts a price in blood. And where the truths the unlikely trio uncovers are more sinister than they could have imagined.
