Speaking in Bones by Kathy Reichs
Temperance Brennan (Book 18) - Release Date 7/21/15
Brennan is approached by a layman websleuth with a horrifying recording that spurs Brennan to take on the case of a missing girl. and a backwoods mystery. I keep reading this series out of loyalty to the franchise and enjoyment of the characters overall. Plotwise these books are turning into a lot of exposition and not a whole lot of action. Brennan and other characters have long monologues conveying to other characters what they learned from internet research in order to provide the reader with background. It would be better for that to be done more organically because it takes you out of the story a bit. That said, the plot was interesting, the characters were compelling and I'm on board for more Brennan adventures.
