This is another book featuring Temperance Brennan. Temperance spends her time as a forensic anthropologist between her labs in Canada and North Carolina. In this novel she's teaching a new crop of archeology students for the summer when they find a body much too fresh for the Native American burial ground they're working in. This leads to the inevitable mystery and science that make Reichs' books so entertaining. Highly recommended.
