Book: Deja Dead
Author: Kathy Reichs
This is my 83rd read for the year
This is the story of Temperance Brennan. She is a forensic anthropologist who has recently moved to Quebec after her marriage ended. A dismembered femal corpse is found in a trash bag, and Temperance starts relating this find to a few past cases in the last few years. She sees a pattern, but the police department think she is wrong. She takes it on herself to find the killer before he attacks someone else.
This book was okay. I was interested in trying it because I did like the show "Bones" which this book series is based on. However - the book isn't like the show. That isn't good or bad - it just is. I actually found the book very dry. It was a long book that was overly wordy. I love a good murder mystery book (I am a big Patricia Cornwell fan), but Reichs book just didn't do it for me. I struggled with this book for over 2 weeks, before finally finishing it.
I know this was her first one. Maybe I should try another in the future? We shall see. The writing just wasn't good. Too much overly describing the mundane.
