See where the smash #1 New York Times bestselling Temperance Brennan "cleverly plotted and expertly maintained" (The New York Times) series all began with Deja Dead, the first installment from forensic anthropologist and internationally bestselling thriller writer Kathy Reichs.

Her life is devoted to justice--for those she never even knew.

In the year since Temperance Brennan left behind a shaky marriage in North Carolina, work has often preempted her weekend plans to explore Quebec. When a female corpse is discovered meticulously dismembered and stashed in trash bags, Temperance detects an alarming pattern--and she plunges into a harrowing search for a killer. But her investigation is about to place those closest to her--her best friend and her own daughter--in mortal danger...
