The seventh installment in the "Temperance Brennan" mystery series is anything but trite.
Dr. Kathy Reichs is a professor of anthropology at UNC-Charlotte, with a PhD from Northwestern University.
Dr. Reichs is also, more importantly, both a forensic anthropologist for the state of North Carolina and the Canadian equivalent in Montreal for the Province of Quebec.
As part of Dr. Reichs? work, she examines bones and other remains and offers expert testimony in court.
