Book: Deja Dead

 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.
