I did not purchase this through Amazon. I bought this second hand (as I have with most of the Temperance Brennan books).
After dealing with cult activity in the previous novel, Tempe doesn't slow down and this time takes on a Biker gang. Fueled by her anger over a young girl becoming an innocent casualty in a biker gang war, Tempe joins a special task force investigating the gangs. And when a discovery is made in the headquarters of one of the gangs, she won't stop until she finds justice for all the innocents.
Tempe once again throws herself into the case, and into danger. She makes rash decisions at times, that put her in hot water. She always pulls through, but not without consequence. I can't give too much away, but for a moment I feared for Tempe's safety.
In this novel, Tempe is visited by her nephew, Kit. He's not as off-the-rails as his mother, Harry, but he's not altogether normal. Kit seems to be heading off into trouble, and Claudel (the detective so often blatantly rude to Tempe) may be the person to get him back from danger.
In her usual style, Tempe brings with her a special balance of hard professionalism and humanity. It is balanced so perfectly, and Kathy Reichs once again shows she has written such a deep character in Tempe Brennan.
