America’s Favorite Forensic Anthropologist Returns in Kathy Reichs’ 13th Novel, Spider Bones
Bestselling author, Kathy Reichs – whose books have inspired the TV show, Bones – is back with her thirteenth novel featuring America’s favorite forensic anthropologist, Temperance Brennan. Book publicity firm, Newman Communications, scheduled Reichs with more than 20 national and local radio interviews, including USA Radio Network, CJAD-AM (Montreal), Northeast Public Radio, and Lifestyle Radio Network.
In Spider Bones, forensic anthropologist Temperance Brennan is called to the scene of a drowning in Quebec. The victim’s fingerprints identify him as John Lowery – an American soldier who had been declared dead in Vietnam in 1968 and buried long ago in North Carolina. How could a man have died twice, and how did his body end up in Canada? As Brennan’s investigation progresses, a riveting and complex tale of murder and deceit unfolds in Spider Bones.
