Another great novel in the Temperance Brennan series. Again, if you think this will be like the TV show, Bones, you will not be happy.
Fatal Voyage ties into one of the cases. A plane crash in rugged terrain, and Tempe is first on the scene. There are numerous acronyms thrown about in this novel for the different investigative branches on the scene, and I can't remember them all now.
The second case involves mysterious deaths that become tied to a secret club. There are further shocking details in this case, but I won't detail them here, as it will give too much away.
Great to see Ryan back in the scene. He adds something to the story, especially with his interactions with Tempe. And, we have another animal introduction, being a dog called Boyd. Boyd adds a lightness to the story that it needs, especially with dark subject matter.
Somebody in trying to discredit Tempe in this novel, and she has to really dig in to her reserves to fight back. It's great to see her do so, because it shows that she has the grit to get the job done. It's another thing I love about these novels. When the chips are down, Tempe doesn't get out of trouble immediately. She had to fight tooth and nail, and sometimes she doubts herself. It makes her struggle seem so real.
It's annoying to see people wishing for Tempe to physically fight back and win against the "bad guys". In the novels, Tempe uses her mind to fight crime. She is not a physical fighter. If she were, it wouldn't be as real.
