Cross Bones by Kathy Reichs

Synopsis: An orthodox Jew is found shot dead in Montreal, the mutilated body barely recognisable.

Extreme heat has accelerated decomposition, and made it virtually impossible to determine the bullet trajectory.
But just as forensic anthropologist Dr Temperence Brennan is attempting to make sense of the fracture patterning, a mysterious stranger slips her a photograph of a skeleton, assuring her it holds the key to the victim’s death.
The trail of clues leads all the way to the Holy Land where, together with detective Andrew Ryan, Tempe makes a startling discovery – but the further Tempe probes into the identity of the ancient skeleton, the more she seems to be putting herself in danger…

Comments: This book had an OK storyline, but I found the writing style annoying. I was also unhappy with the ending, which was wrapped up too quickly for my taste. It felt to me as though the author just got sick of writing and decided to finish the book, so she had the main character explain how it all worked out. An OK read but not a masterpiece.
