Another day. Another death. Death du Jour. My God, how many such days would there be? On a bitterly cold march night in Montreal, forensic anthropologist Dr Temperance Brennan is exhuming the remains of a nun proposed for sainthood in the grounds of an old church. Just hours later, Tempe is called to the scene of a horrific arson. A young family has perished, and there seems to be no witness, no motive, and no explanation. From the charred remains of the inferno, to a trail of sinister cult activity and a terrifying showdown during an ice storm, Tempe faces a nerve-shattering test of both her forensic expertise and her instinct for survival.

Another good book from Kathy Reichs. The storyline was very creative, full of suspense and detail and very well read.
I haven't read the Tempe series in order and went back to this one. Really not impressed by the narration by comparison to later ones. characterisation voices were poor and on a number of occasions were confusing. BUT the storyline was excellent and one of the best. Great scene setting for many of the people in Tempe 's life and not to be missed. so worth persevering even if,like me, you don't get on with the narrator.
"Bones, bones and more bones!"
Death Du Jour is the brilliant second novel, featuring Tempe Brennan, written by Kathy Reichs. Tempe's sister Harriet is involved in a life changing course which may be more than it seems. Tempe investigates a cult after the bodies of women and children linked to the cult, are discovered. Bonnie Hurren delivers a good performance.
