The Bone Collection
From #1 bestselling author Kathy Reichs comes a collection of four pulse-pounding short stories starring forensic anthropologist Dr. Temperance Brennan—including one original that tells how the beloved forensic anthropologist got her start in the lab—together in a single print edition for the first time.
From #1 bestselling author Kathy Reichs comes a captivating array of stories that show you Temperance Brennan as you’ve never seen her before.
In Bones in Her Pocket, Temperance Brennan is called to investigate a bag of human remains discovered in North Carolina. Tempe discovers that the remains are those of a young graduate student who disappeared. The student had unexplained ties to a radical eco-activist nearby, and soon Tempe's passion for crime solving leads her into danger of her own.
At the opening of Swamp Bones, Tempe takes a much-needed vacation in the Florida Everglades, where she visits a friend researching Burmese pythons. But Tempe’s reverie is shattered when she discovers human remains and the telltale signs of murder by a very different kind of predator.
Bones on Ice sees Temperance Brennan called to investigate an unusual discovery: an earthquake on Mount Everest that has unearthed a mummified corpse. But what starts as a typical case soon raises more questions. Was the young woman’s death an accident? Why aren’t the other climbers talking? And how far will those hiding the truth go to make sure the past stays buried?
And in First Bones, readers finally get a never-before-seen look at how a young Dr. Temperance Brennan first got her start in the lab.
Suspenseful, thrilling, and pacy, The Bone Collection is perfect for fans of the Bones series both old and new.
