Book Review: Deja Dead by Kathy Reichs

Deja Dead

By Kathy Reichs



Blurb (Taken from Goodreads):

In the year since Temperance Brennan left behind a shaky marriage in North Carolina, work has often preempted her weekend plans to explore Quebec. When a female corpse is discovered meticulously dismembered and stashed in trash bags, Tempe detects an alarming pattern — and she plunges into a harrowing search for a killer. But her investigation is about to place those closest to her — her best friend and her own daughter — in mortal danger…


It took me a long time to get into this book, and several months to read. The story takes several chapters to really start, with a fair amount of vague background into Tempe Brennan’s life. However, the final few chapters took off and were excellent with plenty of action and intrigue.

The story follows Tempe Brennan seeking out a suspected serial killer, but met with a brick wall when it comes to convincing her colleagues.

There is some tension with regards to her friendships and concerns, but I wasn’t surprised by the outcome.

Overall I did enjoy the book, the story wasn’t all that unique but it was well written and I will read other Kathy Reichs books. I was only disappointed in how long it took for the story to become interesting.

For Bones fans, please do not read this expecting to see Emily Deschanel and David Boreanez – you will be sorely disappointed. The characters are nothing alike.
