‘Kathy Reichs has written her masterpiece’ MICHAEL CONNELLY
'This page-turning series never lets the reader down’ HARLAN COBEN
In a profession like this, you're bound to make enemies . . .
An eye . . .
It all starts when Dr Temperance Brennan finds a box on her porch. Inside is a fresh human eyeball with GPS coordinates etched into it. They lead her to a macabre discovery in a Benedictine Monastery, and soon after she discovers a mummified corpse in a state park.
. . . for an eye
There seems to be no pattern to these killings, except that each mimics a killing connected to something a younger Tempe experienced, or barely escaped. Someone is targeting her, and she needs to figure out why before they strike again.
And then her daughter Katy disappears.
Someone is playing a dangerous game with Tempe. And they won’t stop until they have taken everything from her . . .
Electrifying, heart-stopping and compulsive, this is Tempe’s most personal and dangerous case yet . . .
