This is a review of “Death Du Jour” by Kathy Reichs. It is the 2nd novel in her Temperance Brennan Series. It follows on from “Déjà Dead“.
Tempe is attending the exhumation of a nun who may be made a saint by the church. When the nun is exhumed, all is not as expected. Tempe is then called out to a house fire, suspected arson. Several bodies were found in the house, including those of 2 infants.
Why were these people there? And who would want to kill all of them in such a horrible manner?
While working, Tempe must also balance her personal life, she must find time to spend with her grown daughter and her quirky sister turns up to join a course that will help to mend her wayward habits.
More bodies turn up, and while at first they seem unrelated, it soon becomes clear they are connected.
A forensic mystery with themes of religion.
