I Like Bones!

--by Hanje Richards
This summer, I started watching the TV series Bones. The series is based on novels by Kathy Reichs (photo at left) and her character Temperance Brennan. Since I have long been a fan of Reichs' fiction, is it not surprising that I really am enjoying Bones. Perhaps you have watched the TV series, but are not aware of her novels.

The Copper Queen Library has seven Kathy Reichs titles in the stacks, which you may enjoy as well if you are intrigued with books by and about forensic anthropologists. In chronological order (publication date), the books we have at Copper Queen Library are:

Deja Dead (1997), Death du Jour (1999), Deadly Decisions (2000), Fatal Voyage (2001), Grave Secrets (2002), Bare Bones (2003), and Monday Mourning (2004).

The main character in both the TV show Bones and in the mystery novels is Dr. Temperance Brennan, but they are not the same stories and, interestingly, on the TV show, Dr. Brennan, played by Emily Deschanel (photo at left), is also the author of best-selling novels about forensic anthropology.

All of these novels can be found in our mystery section on the top floor of the library. And, if any of them are checked out when you look for them, we will be happy to hold them and contact you when they become available.
