To some, the dead are a commodity. For Tempe Brennan, they hold the key to cracking a horrific crime ring.

Among the ancient remains in a Native American burial ground, Tempe discovers a fresh skeleton -- and what began as an ordinary teaching stint at an archeology field school in Charleston, South Carolina, fast becomes a heated investigation into an alarming pattern of homicides. The clues hidden in the bones lead to a street clinic where a monstrous discovery awaits, and Tempe -- whose personal life is in upheaval, with two men competing for her -- can't afford any distractions as she pieces together a shattering and terrifying puzzle.

I began reading this because of the archaeological part of the plot, and at first it was engrossing. Then it drags on and on, and Brennan's ex-lovers get involved, and that's not nearly as interesting as you might hope. So many characters are thrown in, new ones in every chapter, that keeping track of them is not possible. Nor, after a while, did I want to. Spoiler alert: the solution hangs on an eyelash. But if you read that far you will already have figured out the main parts of the plot and who most of the bad guys are. And, like me, by then you probably won't care.

The suspense is still on! But the end becomes predictable on this one.

Very good installment in the series. Several bodies, several cases all lead to one grisly crime ring. Plenty of good stuff in the ongoing personal story for Tempe also, even if it's not going how I would like.
