When an Orthodox Jew is found shot to death in Montreal, Temperance Brennan is called in to examine the body and to figure out the puzzling damage to the corpse. Unexpectedly, a stranger slips her a photograph of a skeleton and assures her the picture is the key to the victim's death. Before she knows it, Tempe is involved in an international mystery as old as Jesus, a mystery that could rewrite 2000 years of religious history.



  • I found this book unexciting, predictable, slow, and packed with inconsequential details. It's constant and inappropriate attempts at humor failed and only further distracted me from the story. The action takes place mostly in Israel, but I get the impression that the author's knowledge of the country comes from a half-week long sightseeing trip and a couple of photos. I learned much more about Temperance Brennan's cat and bird than I did about Israel. The narrator is very talented, but she sounds like she makes most of her money doing punchy, upbeat commercials for cute ladies' clothing. She "sells" the lines too much and sounds less like a real person and more like an actor pretending to be a real person. Overall I was extraordinarily unimpressed and recommend this audiobook to nobody.
  • If you are a fan of Kathy Reichs you will enjoy this book but if you are like me you probably won't remember what it was about. The best part for me is envisioning David Boreanz's (Booth on the TV show) face whenever the male lead, Ryan, is key to the narrative.
