BONES in HER POCKET (Temperance Brennan #15.5) (audiobook) (short story) by Kathy Reichs
Published by Simon and Schuster Audio in December of 2013.
Read by Linda Emond
Duration: 1 hour, 56 minutes
This short story is designed to go between books 15 & 16 in the series and is the audiobook version of a kindle e-book that was released in the summer of 2013.
In Bones In Her Pocket forensic anthropologist Temperance Brennan is called out to a remote location called Mountain Island Lake. It is the site of an artist colony and a raptor rescue center (they help deal with injured hawks, eagles and owls as well as advocate for policies that will help those animals).
A body was found floating in a canvas bag that floated up in the aftermath of a serious flood. As Brennan figures out whose body was found she soon discovers that there is no shortage of suspects...
This is my first Kathy Reichs book of any sort. To her credit, Reichs did not lose this newbie to her series despite the short length of the audiobook. The story moves along quickly and is easy to follow.
The reader, Linda Emond did a fabulous jobs with the reading, particularly the accents.
Note: This audiobook was sent to me by the publisher through Audiobook Jukebox's Solid Gold Reviewer program in exchange for an honest review.
I rate this audiobook 4 stars out of 5.
