Book Cover of The Bone Code by Kathy Reichs

This is the 20th novel by Kathy Reichs, who writes about fictional forensic anthropologist Temperance Brennan – the character featured in the television series “Bones.” This book is about unidentified bodies found in South Carolina that eerily echo an unsolved case she handled in Quebec a few years ago. Now the authorities are grappling with a flesh-eating bacterium that is spreading, and this book could have been pulled from recent headlines.
