Flash and Bones by Kathy Reichs
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
"A body is found in a barrel of asphalt next to Lowes Motor Speedway near Charlotte just as 200,000 fans are pouring into town for race week. The next day, a NASCAR crew member shares with Tempe a devastating story. Twelve years earlier his sister, Cyndi Gamble, then a high school senior who wanted to be a professional racecar driver, disappeared along with her boyfriend, Cale Lovette. Lovette kept company with a group of right wing extremists known as the Patriot Posse. Is the body Cyndi’s? Or Cale’s?
At the time of their disappearance, the FBI joined the investigation, but the search was quickly terminated. As Tempe is considering multiple theories, including an FBI cover-up, a surprising, secret substance is found with the body, leaving Tempe to wonder what exactly the government was up to. . ."
I really enjoyed this book. I have never read a Kathy Reichs book before and was so glad I gave her ago.
The main character Dr Brennan isn't quite as weird/quirky as she is in the TV series "Bones", But I think I liked that. I will definitely grab her books again.
