13th book in the Tempe Brennan series


I  first came across the books through the Bones Series on Fox. One day while at Barnes and Noble I came across Monday Mourning the 7th book in the series. After that I was hooked and have read every book to date. Dr. Brennan is called in on a Case in Canada with Detective Andrew Ryan. A floater is found When the identity is found to be that of someone in  the US Military.  Then who is buried in the soldier’s grave in North Carolina?

She flies there and looks at the remains. Needing some help she accompanies those remains to Hawaii  and with the help with collages at the JPAC (Joint Pow/Mia Accounting Command) and the CIL (Central identification laboratory)  in he hopes that they can help her identify these men. JPAC’s mission is to locate American war dead and bring them home. To be honest with you I was a bit overwhelmed with all the abbreviations. I did enjoy reading the novel. Like I do with all her novels. I think that if you are a fan of The Bones tv series you will enjoy this book.
