From world-class forensic anthropologist Kathy Reichs, the international No 1 best-selling crime thriller writer and the inspiration behind the hit TV series Bones, comes a new blood-pumping thriller.
Sunnie has spent years running from her past, burying secrets and building a life in which she needs no one and feels nothing.
But a girl has gone missing, lost in the chaos of a bomb explosion and the family needs Sunnie’s help.
Is the girl dead? Did someone take her? If she is out there? Or does she not want to be found?
It’s time for Sunnie to face her own demons – because they might just lead her to the truth about what really happened.
About the author:
With Reichs, readers know they are in the hands of an expert.
As one of only 82 forensic anthropologists ever certified by the American board, Reichs’s real-life expertise has given her novels an authenticity most
other crime novelists would kill for.
From teaching FBI agents how to detect and recover human remains, to separating and identifying commingled body parts in her lab, no one is better
qualified to write about what it’s really like to catch the killer and solve the crime.
Reichs has brought her dramatic work experience to her mesmerising forensic thrillers. For years she consulted to the Office of the Chief Medical
Examiner in North Carolina and continues to do so for the Laboratoire de Sciences Judiciaires et de Médecine Légale or the province of Québec.
Reichs has travelled to Rwanda to testify at the UN Tribunal on Genocide, and helped exhume a mass grave in Guatemala.
As part of her work at Joint POW/MIA Accounting Command she aided in the identification of war dead from World War II, Korea, and Southeast Asia.
Reichs has served on the board of directors and as vice president of the American Academy of Forensic Sciences and is a member of the National
Police Services Advisory Board in Canada.
She is a professor in the department of anthropology at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte.
