Deadly Decisions by Kathy Reichs
Mystery, Crime, Suspense, Forensic
The third book in the Temperance Brennan series, Dr. Brennan is compelled to join Caracjou, a task force dedicated to stopping the crime of notorious motorcycle gangs, after the death of an innocent child. While working as part of the task force and doing her day job, Dr. Brennan finds parts of the skeleton of a girl from North Carolina. The location of the burial leads Dr. Brennan to think there is a link between the girl’s death and the biker gangs. As she travels back and forth between Montréal and the south, Dr. Brennan presses herself deeper and deeper into the world of bikers and their culture. As usual, her dedication to finding he truth places her and her family in danger.
Although I did enjoy this book, I did not enjoy it quite as much as the previous Temperance Brennan novel. I was not as enthralled in the story as with Death Du Jour. Perhaps it’s because I read this one right after reading the other. Maybe I was a little burnt out on mystery! However, it’s still a good read. I would definitely recommend it to those who enjoy mystery novels!
