The best-selling author Kathy Reichs has no shortage of fans. Yet, somehow despite enjoying forensic science in novels, I had never got round to reading her. So when I got the opportunity to review Swamp Bones, I was curious to see what I would find.
In this straight-to-digital short story, Temperance Brennan, a forensic anthropologist, goes on holiday to the Florida Everglades National Park. She unexpectedly finds herself in the middle of an investigation when human bones turn up in the stomach a Burmese Python. I learned plenty about snakes and not a little about human bones in this short story. That said, t’s probably not a title I’d choose left to my own devices.
Published by Random House in September 2014 Swamp Bones also contains the first chapter of Kathy Reich’s new novel Bones Never Lie.
