Produktbeschreibungen

Amazon.de

"In Quebec, winters can be slow for the forensic anthropologist. The temperature rarely rises above freezing. The rivers and lakes ice over, the ground turns rock hard, and snow buries everything. Bugs disappear, and many scavengers go underground. The result: Corpses do not putrefy in the great outdoors. Floaters are not pulled from the St. Lawrence... and some of last season's dead are not found until the spring melt."

Readers of Kathy Reichs's cool and clever first forensic thriller Déjà Dead will recognize the ironic voice of Tempe (short for Temperance) Brennan, the North Carolina-born scientist who winds up working at the Laboratoire de Médicine Légale in Montreal. Here she bristles at the conservative attitudes of some of her Canadian colleagues.

Despite the cold weather, Tempe's workload quickly becomes heavy: the bones of a long-dead nun now up for sainthood have been moved and tampered with; a deadly house fire turns out to be arson; and a university teaching assistant disappears after joining a cult. Tempe must figure out where (and why) all the bodies are buried in the hard Canadian ground. Her investigations take her home to North Carolina, and to a strange colony living on an offshore island.

Unlike certain other writers who specialize in forensic pathology, Reichs doesn't revel in the horror of death or rub our noses in gore: she uses the science of death to reveal rather than to shock or startle. It definitely makes for easier reading--especially at mealtimes. --Dick Adler

Amazon.co.uk

After one of the more startling crime debuts of recent years, Déjà Dead, Kathy Reichs has found herself, at a stroke, regarded as a possible contender for Patricia Cornwell's crown as queen of forensic detection novels. As the new book opens, her forensic anthropologist heroine Temperance Brennan is doing what she usually does--helping to identify remains about which there is almost nothing suspicious. In this case she is dealing with a 19th-century nun of vast sanctity, for whose beatification her relics and burial site need authenticating. What could be simpler or less menacing? Almost immediately, Tempe is called in on a bad case: arson, which has left remains so damaged that a normal pathologist cannot cope--and the victims that pathologists normally cope with include infants stabbed to death.

Something sinister is going on, and whether in Quebec, where she has her practice, or the sleepy South, where she teaches, Tempe is not safe. Reichs' first book was good on the domesticity and friendship to which Tempe retreats--and this time we meet her younger sister, Harriet, who has just got rid of her balloonist lover and is looking for a new interest. --Roz Kaveney

Von Cheshire
Format:Taschenbuch
A different kind of professional female sleuth with the feel of non-fiction fiction. The author is a real-life forensic anthropologist for the State of North Carolina, and is also a professor at The University of North Carolina. The author's character has been divorced, has a 'wacky' sister and a grown-up daughter,is working for the Province of Quebec and teaches at university as well. Dr. Temperance Brennan, the first person narrator, has co-workers who hate her and a male detective who irritates and attracts her. Real excitement is constantly being created because the distractions caused by her personal life interfere with her sleuthing, which the reader can figure out by a few minutes. Despite the University credentials of both character and author, the book is very readable and fast. If bone science doesn't give you the creeps, I suggest taking this book with you on summer vacation. (There is a lot of snowing in the book,a mental boost if the sun is getting too much.)

Von Ein Kunde
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
I bought the author's 1st book, Deja Dead, because I was glad to have found another female medical examiner protagonist similar to Cornwell's Dr. Scarpetta. Still, Deja Dead (Reichs' 1st novel) wasn't as good as when Cornwell is at her, now, occasional best. Death Du Jour, being another Dr. Brennan novel, was a very welcome sight. Then after reading Death Du Jour you see there is a definite improvement over Deja Dead. Reich's story telling skills have improved considerably; now the author really communicates with, and grabs, the reader - she keeps the book moving. I read so many books and not many lately have kept my attention as this one has. If you were iffy with Deja Dead give it another chance with this book.
My only gripe is her wacky sister. Not only was there absolutely no need for her but she took something away from the story and the main character. They are way too different and not believable at all. But not for the sister's appearance I would have rated it 5 stars.
I'll anxiously await and will buy Reichs next book (new character or not) when it comes out. I hope the author doesn't feel the need to constantly inject family members into her story as Cornwell has done; ruining many storylines by focusing on the neice (a consensus among all my reader friends). We all want to read about the character and her unique professional encounters not her relatives.
Congratulations to Ms. Reich on an excellent and intelligent read.

2.0 von 5 Sternen A pyramid of coincidences 14. Juni 2000
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
There is a rule of thumb that no novel should have more than one significant coincidence, and it's a shame Kathy Reichs never heard of that principle. In this novel, the protagonist just happens to be personally affected by seemingly unrelated events in South Carolina, North Carolina, Texas, and Quebec, and it just so happens that each of these subplots tie in to each other culminating in the grand climax. After the first couple chapters, it was painfully obvious how the author had structured the plot. In any mystery where the protagonist is not a law enforcement officer, there is dilemma in plot construction of how the protagonist gets his or her information. It is at this point that Reichs has dropped the ball: Coincidences spanning three states and one Canadian province are not a solid foundation for a compelling novel.
Reich's previous novel had appeal because of the Montreal setting, and because the specialty of 'forensic anthropologist' provides an interesting vehicle for a murder mystery. Those types of 'hooks' may succeed with a writer's first novel, but are not enough to sustain a second novel, especially when compounded by such difficulties of plot construction.

5.0 von 5 Sternen An excellent follow-up to Deja Dead! 18. Juli 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
I've read one ridiculous, boring, outlandish, improbably plotted, terrible book by Patricia Cornwell. I vowed never to read anything by her again. Then I found Kathy Reichs' Deja Dead. I couldn't put it down! Since then, I've been eagerly awaiting her next book and was not disappointed by Death Du Jour. The characters are believable, the plot complex. I thought for sure I knew who the bad guy would turn out to be and I was pleasantly surprised to be wrong! I can understand the comparisons between Reichs and Cornwell, but there really is no comparison. Tempe Brennan kicks Kay Scarpetta's butt!

2.0 von 5 Sternen Interesting forensics, but flawed story 29. August 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
I couldn't warm up to the character of Tempe Brennan. Something false about her. There were too many coincidences to make the plot plausible. Connecting the murders she stumbled upon in North Carolina to the murders in Quebec was enough of a stretch, but then throwing her sister into the thick of things was one coincidence too many. The detailed forensics were interesting to an extent, but not interesting enough to make up for the story problems.

5.0 von 5 Sternen If you like Cornwell , you will like this book 12. April 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
In a church graveyard, Montreal forensic anthropologist Dr. Temperance Brennan diligently digs up the remains of a nun who died in 1888. The church plans to bestow sainthood on Sister Elisabeth Nicolet. However, the marked site fails to contain the sister''s bones as for some mysterious reason they were moved to another locale. When she finds the remains, Tempe begins to feel that the good nun succumbed to foul play.

At the same time, modern deaths due to arson and a teaching assistant disappearance have Tempe overworked. Still, the Tarheel native plows ahead to solve the century old mystery of Sister Elisabeth while helping with the current case load even as it draws her back to Beaufort, North Carolina.

DEATH DU JOUR, the second Tempe tale, is as terrific as the award winning debut novel (see DEJA DEAD). Tempe remains a serene, warm (in spite of her always being cold) character and the support cast adds Canadian and Carolinian depths to the crisp story line. The subplots cleverly merge together, but it is Kathy Reich's' ability to describe in depth forensic tools and results (autopsies, etc.) without goring the reader with plot drifting that makes this work a winner. Instead, these graphic passages augment the entertaining tale with a ring of authenticity. Sub-genre fans will demand more Tempe tales.
