206 Bones

"You have an enemy, Dr Brennan. It is in your interest to learn who placed that call." A routine case turns sinister when Dr Temperance Brennan is accused of mishandling the autopsy of a missing heiress. Someone has made an incriminating accusation that she missed or concealed crucial evidence. Before Tempe can get to the one man with information, he turns up dead. The heiress isn't the only elderly female to have appeared on Tempe's gurney recently. Back in Montreal, three more women have died, their bodies brutally discarded. Tempe is convinced there's a link between their deaths and that of the heiress. But what - or who - connects them? Tempe struggles with the clues, but nothing adds up. Has she made grave errors or is some unknown foe sabotaging her? It soon becomes frighteningly clear. It's not simply Tempe's career at risk. Her life is at stake too.

Novels

In addition to technical books, Kathy Reichs has written eleven novels to date, which have been translated into 30 languages. [ [http://www.kathyreichs.com/suppliers.htm Kathy Reichs book suppliers] ] Her first novel, "Déjà Dead", won the 1997 Arthur Ellis Award for Best First Novel.

The fictional heroine in her novels, Temperance "Tempe" Brennan, is also a forensic anthropologist. Her lifestyle closely mimics that of her creator. A good portion of the novels is based on real life science. Most of the techniques used and technology mentioned are things that Kathy Reichs uses in her real life job. The blood spatter analysis used in "Deadly Decisions", for instance, is directly from her job. In the novel "Grave Secrets" she uses her experience from her visit to Guatemala to enhance the story. Reichs has said herself that she didn't want her character to be perfect and chose to give Temperance some history.

Television

A 2005 FOX television series, "Bones", is inspired by Reichs' life and writing. [ [http://www.fox.com/bones/showinfo/ Bones Show Info] ] The series borrows the name of the books' heroine, Temperance "Bones" Brennan. As in the books, Temperance (Emily Deschanel) is a forensic anthropologist, however, very little else about the character is the same as in the books. She moonlights as an author, writing about a fictional forensic anthropologist named Kathy Reichs. The TV series does not tie in with the book series. It includes a cast of new characters and while the books are all set in either North Carolina or Montreal, the television series is based in Washington, D.C.

Reichs appeared in an episode of "Bones", "Judas on a Pole", in which she played Professor Constance Wright, a forensic anthropologist on the board performing Zack Addy's Thesis Defense. [ [http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0915947/ IMDB profile for Bones episode "Judas on a Pole"] ]
