I’m thrilled to be part of the launch celebrations of The Bone Collection by Kathy Reichs. The Bone Collection was published on 3rd November 2016 by William Heinemann, an imprint of Penguin, and draws together four novellas featuring Temperance Brennan. The Bone Collection is available for purchase in e-book and hardback by following the links here.
To celebrate this month’s publication I have three hardbacked copies of The Bone Collection to give away to UK readers lower down this blog post.
The Bone Collection
A collection of chilling tales featuring forensic anthropologist Temperance Brennan – including the untold story of her first case.
The No.1 Sunday Times bestselling author Kathy Reichs is renowned for suspense and fascinating forensic detail. Now she brings that same artistry to her first volume of collected short stories.
In First Bones, a prequel to Reichs’s very first novel, Déjà Dead, she at last reveals how Tempe became a forensic anthropologist. In this never-before-published story, Tempe recalls the case that lured her from a promising career in academia into the grim but addictive world of criminal investigation.
Three more stories take Tempe from the low country of the Florida Everglades, where she makes a grisly discovery in the stomach of an eighteen-foot Burmese python, to the heights of Mount Everest, where a frozen corpse is unearthed.
(Open in the UK only. Giveaway closes at UK midnight on Wednesday 23rd November 2016.)
