Pizza parlor skeletons
If a bone-chilling, spine-tingling mystery is what you crave on a hot July day, tune into Monday Mourning, Kathy Reichs' latest. One Monday morning finds forensic anthropologist Tempe Brennan excavating the bones of three girls found in the grungy basement of a Montreal pizza joint. The next, she's tweezing feathers from the mouth of a woman who was smothered before she could tell Tempe what she knows about that basement, and this Monday she's about to explore a house of horrors where more girls alive or dead may be found. But Tempe can't predict where it will end or what kind of evil may come her way. Michele Pawk gives Tempe the right voice and the story the right tempo.
