The Bone Collection

Simon and Schuster
5

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.

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.

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • This ebook edition contains a special preview of Kathy Reichs’s upcoming novel Two Nights.

The evidence is irrefutable: In sixteen New York Times bestsellers over the course of as many years, Kathy Reichs has proven herself “a genius at building suspense” (New York Daily News). In forensic anthropologist Temperance Brennan, Reichs has created a detective fiction heroine who’s brilliant to the bone. “Every minute in the morgue with Tempe is golden,” says The New York Times Book Review. In the acclaimed author’s thrilling new novel, Brennan is at the top of her game in a battle of wits against the most monstrous adversary she has ever encountered.

Unexpectedly called in to the Charlotte PD’s Cold Case Unit, Dr. Temperance Brennan wonders why she’s been asked to meet with a homicide cop who’s a long way from his own jurisdiction. The shocking answer: Two child murders, separated by thousands of miles, have one thing in common—the killer. Years ago, Anique Pomerleau kidnapped and murdered a string of girls in Canada, then narrowly eluded capture. It was a devastating defeat for her pursuers, Brennan and police detective Andrew Ryan. Now, as if summoned from their nightmares, Pomerleau has resurfaced in the United States, linked to victims in Vermont and North Carolina. When another child is snatched, the reign of terror promises to continue—unless Brennan can rise to the challenge and make good on her second chance to stop a psychopath.

But Brennan will have to draw her bitter ex-partner out of exile, keep the local police and feds from one another’s throats, and face more than just her own demons as she stalks the deadliest of predators into the darkest depths of madness.

In Bones Never Lie, Kathy Reichs never fails to satisfy readers looking for psychological suspense that’s more than skin-deep.

Don’t miss Kathy Reichs’s short story “Swamp Bones” in the back of the book.
