Deja Dead - Kathy Reichs

I had a good time reading this book, it's my second read by Reichs and I'm looking forward to more. I like the thriller feel, the fast paced action and even the gory details and suspense parts that keep you on the edge of your seat regarding what's going to happen next.

The plot revolves around the discovery of human remains that Brennan quickly relates to another murder whose victim she has come in contact with in the past. As the police doesn't seem to give credence to her serial murder theory Tempe takes more chances to prove she is right and soon finds herself in danger and the target of the killer's attention.

However I would have liked it even more if there was more focus on the criminal profile - it was a mystery till the end regarding who it was and what were the motivations, and if there was more contextualization of Brennan's character and life. She was a bit too adventurous, had only one friend and her relationship with her daughter and ex-husband is only approached in a glance. A B.

Having said that and since I'm also a fan of the TV series Bones I must say that the books are nothing like the series although they are both good in their own way.


  1. The books and the series have not much in common other than Temperance Brennan herself. The books are pretty good and the geographical stuff is pretty much accurate. Which is nice when you happen to live in the city where the book is set.

  2. That's another thing I'm greatly enjoying, the city descriptions, the french heritage that always seems present... very interesting!


I love to chat about books and stuff and I would love to hear from like minded readers. Please do leave me a comment :-)
