Receiving mysterious clues about a shooting murder in Montreal, Tempe Brennan wonders if the victim may have been a Jewish black market antiquities trader and teams up with detective Andrew Ryan and biblical archaeologist Jake Drum for a dangerous investigation in Israel. By the author of Monday Mourning. Reprint.

Simon and Schuster
The key to a modern murder lies in the sands of history.

Examining a badly decomposed corpse is de rigueur for forensic anthropologist Temperance Brennan. But puzzling damage on the body of a shooting victim, an Orthodox Jewish man, suggests this is no ordinary Montreal murder. When a stranger slips Tempe a photograph of a skeleton unearthed at an archaeological site, Tempe uncovers chilling ties between the dead man and secrets long buried in the dust of Israel. Traveling there with Detective Andrew Ryan, Tempe plunges into an international mystery as old as Jesus, and centered on the controversial discovery of Christ's tomb. Has a mastermind lured her into an elaborate hoax? If not, Tempe may be on the brink of rewriting two thousand years of history -- if she can survive the foes dead set on burying her.

Not one of my favorites of hers. Lots of Jewish historical stuff to wade through, hard to keep my focus.

Historical work of fiction with redundant hypothesis; I would have sliced pages off. I had lost my interest by the end, when the action picked up...

This one was ok but dragged on a bit for me. I have no interest in religion so maybe that's why. Some plot elements turned out to be absolutely unrelated to the central mystery which I find strange. Probably could skip this one and not lose anything in the overall story arc.

I couldn't put this one down! Kathy Reichs ability to integrate historical religious stories with modern day science makes Dan Brown look like an ameatur!!! Be prepared to find yourself losing track of time once you dive into this one!
