Dr. Tempe Brennen is back again. This time there are two stories blended into one, and the transition is easy to follow. The bones of Sister Elisabeth Nicolet who has been dead for over a century, have been moved and tampered with, and a deadly house fire, which is suspected as arson, and a university teaching assistant who disappears after joining a cult. Homicide Detective Andrew Ryan, whom Tempe has had a combustive relationship with, in the past, joins her in the investigation. I enjoyed this book as much as I did Deja Dead. Tempe is an amazing heroine. the medical details are exact and accurate, the plot is exciting and has lots of twists and turns.
This book really grabbed me from the very first page and held me on the end of my seat, and what a wonderful ride it was. I cannot wait for the next installment of Tempe, which will be Death Decisions. To entice us, Dr. Reichs gave a sampling of the new book in the back of Death DeJour.
