Devil Bones de Kathy Reichs (2008)

  1. 22
    Postmortem de Patricia Cornwell (Larkken)
    Larkken: The situation in which Temperance Brennan is involved in Devil Bones (for example, the interaction of the forensic specialist with the police investigators) is very similar to that which develops in Cornwell's series.

I like this series. Good Read

Kathy Reichs' books have always held my interest. I was disappointed in Devil Bones. Some of the humor was there but the suspense was lacking. I have read the books in order of publication and will move forward with reading the next books. Hopefully, they will be written in the same manner as earlier titles. ( )

This book did not disappoint. Like all the rest of her books I could barely put this down once I started reading it. My only slight cavil is that it takes place in Charlotte, NC not Canada but I guess every once in a while Reichs has to throw a sop to her American readers.

As is obvious from the title, in this book Tempe is dealing with possible Satanism. She is called to a sub-basement that a plumber discovered in an old house. The plumber glimpsed a human skull and smelt decomposition and called 911. Tempe enters the sub-basement and quickly determines that the smell emanates from a chicken carcass but because the skull is human and there appear to be ritualistic shrines an investigation is started. Soon after a headless corpse is found outside of the city with a pentacle and 666 carved in it. A grandstanding local politician whips up fervour about these crimes and Tempe gets sucked into responding, with disastrous results for her career.

All is not work though and Tempe's daughter matchmakes for her since Ryan is trying to rekindle his relationship with his old girlfriend for their daughter's sake. Tempe's new swain is actually an old one as they went to highschool together and had a fling. We never do really find out what transpired between her and Charlie Hunt because, for the first time in all the books, Tempe falls off the wagon and blacks out.

I always learn something when I read Reichs' books and this time it was about syncretic religions which are a blending of "heathen" religious practices with Christianity. Santeria, voodoo, brujeria and Palo Mayombe are all examples of syncretic religions. Most of them are harmless but Palo Mayombe followers "use magic to manipulate, captivate, and control, often for their own malevolent purposes." (p. 72) These religions are different from Satanism and Wicca, both of which are also explored in the book.

There is an interview with Reichs at the back of the book in which she says her next book moves between Chicago and Montreal so I am looking forward to that. Keep on writing Kathy. ( )

In a house under renovation, a plumber uncovers a cellar no one knew about, and makes a rather grisly discovery

This set up seems familiar. Another Bones book started this way. But it was a different and enjoyable story. ( )

The twists are tragic and a frightening commentary on current society. Top-notch as always!
 
As in Reichs' earlier novels, the plotting is sound, the suspense is intense but broken just often enough by dark humor, and the forensic education is graduate level. Reichs says she is not retiring Brennan any time soon, which is good news for readers of mystery fiction.
 
Though the alcoholic Tempe goes on a captivating bender, the mystery itself is all too predictable. And Reichs' moral — ''Americans have become a nation afraid'' — is spelled out so clearly it's almost condescending.
