Summary

An underground chamber is exposed in a seedy, dilapidated house with sagging trim and peeling paint…In the dark cellar, a ritualistic display is revealed. A human skull rests on a cauldron, surrounded by slain chickens and bizarre figurines. Beads and antlers dangle overhead. Called to the scene is forensic anthropologist Dr Temperance Brennan. Bony architecture suggests that the skull is that of a young, black female. But how did she die? And when? Then, just as Tempe is working to determine post-mortem interval, another body is discovered: a headless corpse carved with Satanic symbols. As citizen vigilantes, blaming Devil-worshippers, begin a witch-hunt, intent on revenge, Tempe struggles to keep her emotions in check. But the truth she eventually uncovers proves more shocking than even she could have imagined…

Religious Cults, Voodoo and Witches

A young man is murdered, chicken turns up dead on Tempe's doorstep, a local politico stirs up trouble between Charlotte residents and local religious cults and then "Skinny" Slidell's partner turns up dead. The politico is blaming satanic cults, an innocent man is blamed and arrested and an amateur detective is hassling Tempe for information. Devil Bones is a great read and listen. Well narrated by Lorelei King, Devil Bones is Kathy Reichs at her bony best.
