Bestselling author Kathy Reichs "Spider Bones" will captivate your attention from beginning to en. he thought she had seen everything but when forensic anthropologist Temperence "Tempe" Brennan approached the crime scene and she was in awe. Wrapped and taped in plastic was a body with weird tubing attached to it and later the identity of the deceased would turn out to be John "Spider" Lowery, an American vet but why was he in Quebec? . This was a short book that lacked the suspense that has kept me awake way past bed time with Reichs past books. That need to read "just one page to see what happens" was missing.

Perry strode to the cart. I pointed to a triangular projection on the lower end of the tibia. That’s the medial malleolus, the bony lump you feel on the inside of your ankle. That’s the medial malleolus, the bony lump you feel on the inside of your ankle ticulates with the talus in the foot, and provides joint stability. So? I oriented the limb. That’s correct anatomical position. Perry studied the short segment of calf. Ryan and Gearhart asked as one. This is from a left leg, I said. Parts of a left leg were also recovered on Tuesday, including a portion of medial malleolus.

Kathy Reichs—#1 New York Times bestselling author and producer of the FOX television hit Bones—returns with the thirteenth riveting novel featuring forensic anthropologist Dr. Temperance Brennan.


John Lowery was declared dead in 1968—the victim of a Huey crash in Vietnam, his body buried long ago in North Carolina. Four decades later, Temperance Brennan is called to the scene of a drowning in Hemmingford, Quebec. The victim appears to have died while in the midst of a bizarre sexual practice. The corpse is later identified as John Lowery. But how could Lowery have died twice, and how did an American soldier end up in Canada?


Tempe sets off for the answer, exhuming Lowery’s grave in North Carolina and taking the remains to Hawaii for reanalysis—to the headquarters of JPAC, the U.S. military’s Joint POW/ MIA Accounting Command, which strives to recover Americans who have died in past conflicts. In Hawaii, Tempe is joined by her colleague and ex-lover Detective Andrew Ryan (how “ex” is he?) and by her daughter, who is recovering from her own tragic loss. Soon another set of remains is located, with Lowery’s dog tags tangled among them. Three bodies—all identified as Lowery.


And then Tempe is contacted by Hadley Perry, Honolulu’s flamboyant medical examiner, who needs help identifying the remains of an adolescent boy found offshore. Was he the victim of a shark attack? Or something much more sinister?


A complex and riveting tale of deceit and murder unfolds in this, the thirteenth thrilling novel in Reichs’s “cleverly plotted and expertly maintained series” (The New York Times Book Review). With the smash hit Bones now in its fifth season and in full syndication—and her most recent novel, 206 Bones, an instant New York Times bestseller—Kathy Reichs is at the top of her game.

I have been a Kathy Reichs fan for years and have loved every one of her books. Spider Bones had me wondering if Ms. Reichs had actually written it or if it was written by a publsihing house ghost writer.

In certain areas, the wording did not come across like Kathy Reichs and there were some minor inconsistencies in Temerpance Brennen's character from previous books. The character of Ryan was his usual teasing, flirting self, but lacked the dimension in this book that he has in previous ones. He comes across flat and as litle more than some comic relief and a brief change of pace for Brennen. The chemistry between the two was missing.

I am also used to Brennen being involved in some type of heart racing abduction in which she faces certain death some place in the story.

This was a short book that lacked the suspense that has kept me awake way past bed time with Reichs past books. That need to read "just one page to see what happens" was missing. The story involves, basically, a series of errors and misidentified bodies due to some shady things that occured decades ago.

That said, although avid Reich fans may find something lacking in this book, I must admit that the story held my attention and I found it an interesting read. It held my attention, but failed to grip it, squeezing and twisting at my emotions and anxieties the way Reich's books normally do.

How can one man be dead in three different places spanning four decades? The investigation takes Tempe from Montreal to Hawaii to delve into the past surrounding the remains. I really feel like Kathy Reichs has returned to her forensic roots with this one. True, it's not as much of a thriller as some of her books, but I didn't mind at all. I found her last novel, 206 Bones, almost a little too sensational (my review).

There is lots of personal drama going on for both Tempe and Ryan, who are trying to help their respective daughters deal with their own sagas, while balancing work and avoiding the elephant in the room also known as their personal lives. While the main case isn't pressing, I found it engrossing ~so much so that the secondary case seemed to encroach on and detract from the story a little. It is, however, realistic that a visiting forensic anthropologist would be consulted and be working on more than one case at a time. I think I was also feeling Tempe's frustration with the second intrusive case.

Some of the criticism of this book deals with her topic, JPAC, and I don't think it's deserved. Yes, Reichs goes into detail and explains thoroughly. It's one of the things I love about her writing. But if you're at all familiar with Reichs' writing, you know that she tends to pick a subject and use it as a base for which to write her mysteries around. Sometimes it's one I find fascinating, like Devil Bones, other times it's one that fails to capture me, like Bones to Ash, but what it really comes down to is personal taste. One thing to be sure of is that Reichs never sacrifices the integrity of the investigation or the science. So even when it's not a topic of my interest, I know that the story surrounding it will be concrete.

If you haven't read the rest of the series, some of the personal interactions may seem like filler, but it is an intricate advance in the overall story arch. I must say I wish there had been a little more movement for Tempe along the romantic front, but again, that's me being invested in her as a character.

This is a solid addition to the Temperance Brennan series... and now I must go back to waiting hungrily for the next installment.

First, know that I am a fan and have read all the Bones books. That said, Kathy Reichs may here have substantiated my long belief that male writers tend to be more concise ("She stood in the doorway, her backlit outline making promises which wouldn't be kept. As she stepped into the dim light, some of the promise was fulfilled. Her face, her figure, and the legs that went from here to there and back again, all made my heart race--just a little anyway."), while a lot of female writers would have described the office in detail, as well as every stitch of clothing she wore, as well as her jewelry and perfume.

As I replied to another reviewer, Kathy Reichs can be sometimes much like (the original, pre-factory) Tom Clancy with regard to minutia. There is a portion of this book where she explains in extreme detail (and in detriment to the flow of the story) just about everything there is to know about POW/MIA remains identification. She adds a little in a short article following the story, and I think most of what was included in the novel would better have been in a forward, to be read by anyone who chose to do so.

I speed-read through the "lecture" and got back into the story, which, with its many twists and turns, wound up being a page-turner. With the caveat above regarding the educational verbiage, I can recommend this to seasoned fans and newcomers alike.

On the plus side, I liked the descriptions of Hawaii. I felt they created the feeling that you were there. I also liked hearing about the military's efforts to bring our troops home. It made me wish I could help somehow. The plot was only somewhat interesting. It kept me guessing and trying to figure out what happened but did not generate any action. Also, there was way too much family business. I prefer books that keep the character's personal life at a minimum and stick to the mystery. Most of Kathy's books have a love interest but not much more. Bringing her daughter in added a dimension to Temperance's life. Usually Katy was only a phone call now and then. Unfortunately, I didn't really care for their relationship. I also thought the technical descriptions were excessive. Every TV show, book and movie uses DNA at some point and everyone expects it. I really don't need to know how it works. The book needed a lot more action. There was never a point where I couldn't put it down or was on the edge of my seat, worried about what would happen next. The action that took place was over in a page or two. I'm not sorry I read it but I'm glad I got it used at a reduced price.
