This August, forensic anthropologist Temperance Brennan returns in A Conspiracy of Bones, the 19th book in Kathy Reichs’ #1 New York Times bestselling series.
A Conspiracy of Bones is Reichs’ first full Brennan novel since 2015’s Speaking in Bones, and we’ve got all the plot details and the cover art below! (Note: Reichs did release a Brennan-related project in 2016, a short story collection called The Bone Collection; she also published a thrilling standalone novel in 2017 called Two Nights.)
#1 New York Times bestselling author Kathy Reichs ratchets up the suspense as forensic anthropologist Temperance Brennan fights to crack her most chilling case yet.
Temperance Brennan is stressed. Following her boyfriend’s marriage proposal, she’s finally agreed to move in with him. Her mother is planning the mother of all weddings.
And her beloved boss has died a tragic death. His replacement still smolders over Tempe’s criticism of her from years earlier and exiles Tempe from the lab.
Then a friend tips off Tempe that a mutilated corpse has been found. Identity unknown. Cause of death unclear. Though the body lacks a face, hands, and organs, her new boss refuses to ask Tempe for a consult.
Tempe vows to discover the truth, but the clues she discovers are disturbing and confusing. Was the faceless man a spy? A trafficker? A target for assassination by the government? And why was he carrying the name of a child missing for almost a decade?
The more she uncovers, the darker and more twisted the picture becomes. . . .
Fans of Reichs’ series better mark their calendars early — Temperance Brennan is back in bookstores on August 21, 2018, but A Conspiracy of Bones is now available for pre-order wherever books are sold!
