TITLE: BONES TO ASHES
AUTHOR: KATHY REICHS
Details: nr. 10 Tempe Brennan Mystery
In this instalment of the series, Tempe is thrown into an emotional journey back into her past.
When she investigates bones that have been about earth for quite a while, she discovers that they belong to a teenage girl. And taking into consideration where they originated, she can't help thinking that they might belong to a childhood friend of hers, who suddenly and mysteriously disappeared when still a teenager.
At the same time she gets involved in an investigation run by Ryan and "Hippo" into missing girls and unidentified dead girls.
When the two cases appear to come together, Brennan gets very close to becoming obsessed, and is in for a few shocks and surprises.
And meanwhile, her relationship with Ryan appears to have come to an end, because of outside factors, or has it?
This remains one of my favourite series. Good, solid mysteries and extremely well written.
It's a shame I'll have to wait for the next one to be published before I can read on.
