In a house under renovation, a plumber uncovers a cellar no one knew about, and makes a rather grisly discovery -- a decapitated chicken, animal bones, and cauldrons containing beads, feathers, and other relics of religious ceremonies. In the center of the shrine, there is the skull of a teenage girl. Meanwhile, on a nearby lakeshore, the headless body of a teenage boy is found by a man walking his dog. Nothing is clear -- neither when the deaths occurred, nor where. Was the skull brought to the cellar or was the girl murdered there? Why is the boy's body remarkably well preserved? Led by a preacher turned politician, citizen vigilantes blame devil worshippers and Wiccans. They begin a witch hunt, intent on seeking revenge. Forensic anthropologist Temperance Brennan -- "five-five, feisty, and forty-plus"--Is called in to investigate.

One thing I enjoyed about this book is her ? & A in the back. She explained the difference between book Temperance and TV Temperance. They are very different.

I enjoy Ms. Reich’s books. Senior Doctor-at-Bass! D. A.

I also enjoy Kathy Reichs writing. All of her books are full of suspense and each one is very different from the last.

I love Kathy Reichs...her character Temperance Brennan is both cool and clever and the stories, based on actual forensic cases of the author, are always fresh and interesting.
